The team of the popular AnTuTu benchmark has published a fresh ranking of the most productive smartphones based on the Android operating system in the international market. It differs markedly from the ranking compiled by AnTuTu in China.

As noted by AnTuTu experts, in the first half of 2022, the Android flagship phone market is essentially a battlefield between Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and Mediatek Dimensity 9000. Two MediaTek Dimensity 9000 models entered the top ten flagships in June, which is already a big victory for MediaTek compared to last year’s Dimensity 1200. And one of these smartphones immediately took second place, gaining more than a million Antutu points.

The Red Magic 7 smartphone remained the leader, Vivo X80 (on Dimensity 9000) and Motorola Edge 30 Pro took second and third places, leaving far behind Vivo X80 Pro and Poco F4 GT, which were in 2nd and 3rd places in May.

Rounding out the top ten are Xiaomi 12 Pro, Vivo X80 Pro, Poco F4 GT, Realme GT2 Pro, Redmi K50 Pro, Xiaomi 12, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G.

Statistics collected from June 1 to June 30, 2022. The AnTuTu ranking uses averages, not the highest scores. For each smartphone, the results of at least 1000 tests were taken into account – models with fewer tests are not included in the rating.

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of but won’t fix

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of

Network security specialist Michael Horowitz reported problems with VPN on iOS. As it turns out, the operating system does not completely pass network traffic through the virtual private network, which is a potential security issue. The manufacturer has known about this for years, but does nothing.

iOS has a VPN issue that Apple is aware of but won't fix

According to the expert, it seems that everything is working, because the third-party VPN provides a new IP address, DNS servers and a tunnel for traffic. However, sessions and connections established before the VPN is enabled do not switch to the encrypted channel, but function in parallel with it.

The problem is confirmed by a report from May 2020, when specialists discovered the same situation. As evidence, Horowitz cited a screenshot where an iPad connected to a VPN transmits data to both its main VPN provider (37.19.214.1) and Apple Push (17.57.144.12). Thus, there is a potential leak that will reveal the user’s real network address, which can lead to problems. Horowitz tested the system with several types of VPNs, including WireGuard, but the problem remained there.

According to Swiss-based Proton, this problem occurred at least in iOS 13.3.1 and remained in newer versions of the system. In theory, connecting through a VPN should close existing connections, but this does not happen.

Later it became known that Apple added a Kill Switch feature to block existing connections, but this feature does not seem to work or only partially works. According to the source, the problem is relevant for those users who live in conditions of total surveillance.

By the way, Proton offered a solution – to manually close all connections before connecting to the VPN, using the “flight mode”. However, it is unlikely that many users do this. But Horowitz has not yet named any specific solution to the problem.
