A used iPhone 13 can be easily passed off as a new one: security seals have already begun to be forged

Published

As we already reported, Apple made another change to the packaging of the iPhone 13 this year and not only removed the charger, but also simplified the packaging once again by eliminating the packaging film.

On the lower part there is a so-called “security seal”, which is made in the form of a paper strip with perforation. Even last week, there were suggestions that such perforated strips could be re-installed on already opened boxes. And now a video has appeared that confirms this assumption. That is, the presence of this paper strip on the packaging does not guarantee that there will be a brand new iPhone 13 or even some kind of smartphone inside.

The source confirms that the cost of such a sticker is less than one yuan. The sticker is no different from the original sticker and does not need any tools. It is simply glued to the top of the package on both sides, and then to the bottom of the box.

The complexity of the iPhone 13 packaging has decreased, so a large number of counterfeit products may appear on the market. In this regard, those wishing to purchase an iPhone 13 are recommended to do so in official stores.

According to information published on the official Apple website, eliminating the use of film in the packaging boxes of the iPhone 13 and Phone 13 Pro could reduce the amount of plastic used by up to 600 tons.

Apple has said that support has not yet recorded a single call or message mentioning artifacts in iPhone 13 photos.

Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi smartphones cannot do that. There was a video with the disassembly process of the modular Fairphone 4 and strength tests

Published

The modular and most maintainable smartphone Fairphone 4 fell into the hands of blogger JerryRigEverything.

In this case, we are interested not only in his strength tests, although there is usually only one useful of them, but also in the video of the disassembly process.

As you can see, the smartphone is disassembled and assembled as easily as possible, and even the display is dismantled simply by unscrewing a few bolts. There is no need to talk about the simplicity of the battery replacement process. No other device in this segment offers this.

At the same time, modularity did not affect the strength in any way. Thanks to the metal frame, the smartphone practically does not bend, which is very good. The plastic of the back cover does not suffer from this effect either.

Recall that Fairphone 4 is based on SoC Snapdragon 750G and is equipped with an IPS screen, 48-megapixel main camera and a 3905 mAh battery.

The largest cyberattack on US government officials has been carried out. State Department employees’ iPhones have been jailbroken

Published

on

Reuters reports that at least nine iPhones belonging to US State Department officials have been compromised by an unknown attacker using spyware developed by Israel’s NSO Group. This information was confirmed by four sources at once.

According to two sources, the hacks that have occurred in the past few months have affected either US officials in Uganda or people dealing with that country’s affairs in East Africa. Previously, spyware based on NSO technology had already featured in the news with potential targets, including US officials, but it was unclear if hacking attempts had been made or if they were successful.

The NSO Group said in a statement that the company has no confirmation that their tools were used to hack. However, the company has revoked access for the relevant customers and will investigate based on a request from Reuters.

If our investigation shows that these actions really happened with NSO tools, such a client will be permanently blocked and legal proceedings will begin. NSO will also cooperate with any relevant government agency and provide full information that we have.

NSO Group

It is not yet known who carried out this attack against the employees of the US State Department, but it is known that NSO Group sells its products to government law enforcement agencies and intelligence agencies. However, the company itself is not directly involved in surveillance operations. NSO Group software has been used repeatedly to hack smartphones of government officials, journalists, activists, academics and embassies.

It is the largest cyberattack on US government officials, but neither the State Department nor officials from the Ugandan Embassy in Washington have yet issued a statement.

Apple previously filed a lawsuit against the Israeli NSO Group and its parent company to prosecute them for spying on and harassing Apple users.
