“Put your laptop in your backpack and cycle through the city, erasing data from your iPhone.” Apple Denies Talking to Expert About iOS Vulnerability

Published

Twitter user RobertCFO claimed to have discovered a remote code execution exploit in iOS 15 that could allow an attacker to erase data from an iPhone or iPad running all versions of iOS prior to iOS 15.

The vulnerability, according to RobertCFO, allows a high-level Bluetooth LE vulnerability to be used to remotely wipe iPhones and iPads without any access to the devices. “You can just put your laptop in your backpack and cycle around town, erasing data from your iPhone,” he said. He said he would provide confirmation of the information later.

He also shared a screenshot of the correspondence with an Apple employee, which states that iOS 15.1 and iPad OS 15.1 will be released on October 25, as we reported this week.

Apple later released a statement noting that the company had no information about any interactions between the alleged researcher and Apple employees. The company also notes that Apple has not specified specific dates for upcoming software releases. This suggests that the correspondence was forged.

Experts of the analytical company Canalys have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in one of the most important world markets for ready-made PCs – the American one. This market situation reflects the overall picture of the global PC market, which Canalys includes desktops, laptops, tablets and workstations.

In the third quarter of 2021, 30.3 million systems of these categories were sold in the United States, which is 16% less than in the third quarter of 2020.

Notebook shipments totaled 17.1 million units, down 15% year on year. This is due to the sharp drop in Chromebook sales as the education market has reached saturation. Tablet shipments fell 24% to 10.0 million units. Analysts attribute this to a decline in consumer demand. Desktop computers stand out against this background – their shipments grew by 6% and reached 3.2 million units. According to experts, this is due to the return of workers to offices and an increase in purchases in the corporate segment.

Dell was # 1 in the US PC market in the third quarter. It increased sales by 10.4%, which led to an increase in Dell’s share from 22.3% to 27.6%. At the same time, HP, ranked second, reduced sales by 30.7%, which resulted in a decrease in its share from 33.4% to 26.0%. Ranked third, Lenovo increased sales by 2.9%. Its share increased from 15.0% to 17.4%. This is followed by Apple, which reduced sales by 13.7%. Apple’s share fell from 11.9% to 11.6%. Acer closes the top five. It reduced sales by 31.1%, which led to a decrease in its share from 5.6% to 4.4%.

Some newer MacBook Pro 16s have MagSafe issues. Laptops simply won’t charge when turned off

Published

Some new MacBook Pro 16 owners have encountered issues with MagSafe magnetic charging.

The problem is as simple as possible: laptops do not charge when the charger is connected via MagSafe. In this case, the indicator instead of green blinks yellow. The important thing is that the problem only occurs when the laptop is turned off (closed). When the mobile PC is active, charging takes place normally.

It’s unclear how common the problem is, but at least one user has already talked to Apple’s service center, and the company eventually decided to replace the laptop. Unfortunately, so far there are no other solutions to the problem.

Published

The head of Razer has warned users that the manufacturer’s new gaming laptops will be more expensive than their predecessors.

Just reviewed our line of gaming laptops for the next year. It looks like component costs will increase significantly and we will see price increases for next-gen gaming laptops across the board (Blade included) over the next year.

Exactly how much the new models will become more expensive, Razer has not yet announced. However, as we can see, the reason for the rise in price lies in the rise in the cost of components, which means that the problem is likely to affect all or almost all manufacturers of mobile PCs, that is, we can expect an increase in the price of laptops and other brands.

First of all, this will, of course, affect gaming models with top-end CPUs and GPUs. For example, Razer’s most expensive laptop now costs $ 3,700, offering the Core i9-11900H and GeForce RTX 3080.
