Low-level Apple intern stole the iOS 9 source code that ended up on GitHub

Just a couple of days ago, we told you about the leak that has been called the biggest in Apple history. The source code for Apple’s iBoot  program was posted on GitHub for all the world to see. And even though this particular version was from iOS 9, it still might provide hackers with some useful information that can be used to decrypt an iPhone and create more havoc for the iOS faithful.

So who was behind the leak? Was it a recently fired executive looking for payback? A computer genius who hacked through layers of security to get the old code? Or was it a shrewd Wall Street short …

The perfect pair of true wireless headphones

For well over a year now, I’ve been focusing the majority of my time and efforts onto covering wireless Bluetooth headphones. Not just your standard Bluetooth headphones and headsets, but rather true wireless headphones: a segment that has been seeing tremendous growth over the last few years – much more than the traditional stuff we’re accustomed to seeing.

When they saw the first batch of true wireless headphones, many consumers were disappointed by the outcome. Sure, they offered this new convenience of being truly wireless – of not having the left and right channel …

Qualcomm says it will lose two big customers if acquired by Broadcom

Last Thursday, we told you that Qualcomm had rejected Broadcom’s $121 billion offer to buy the company. The $82 a share bid includes $60 in cash and $22 in Broadcom stock, and reportedly features a higher than average break-up fee. This is a cash settlement that Qualcomm would receive in case U.S. regulators decide not to clear a transaction between the two chipmakers. In a published letter from Qualcomm Chairman Paul Jacobs to Broadcom president and CEO Hock Tan, Jacobs mentioned two things that prevent Qualcomm from agreeing to the deal. One is valuation, and the second is “deal certainty.”

Last month, we told you that Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is likely to attend the MWC trade show in Barcelona that begins on February 26th. Xiaomi is rumored to be unveiling a couple of new phones at the show. One is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. This would be a revised version of last year’s sequel to the Xiaomi Mi Mix.

AT&T: our first 5G devices won’t be phones, but ‘pucks’

AT&T was way early with its 5G network trials back in 2016, and is planning to launch a commercial 5G service this year in 12 markets across the US. Don’t expect to lift up your fall season iPhone or Galaxy, and make a call over the 5G ether, or download a movie in seconds, though.

AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson clarified in the conference call to investors while discussing the carrier’s quarterly results, that the first 5G devices will be “pucks,” or mobile wireless routers of sorts, rather than phones. The 4G LTE rollout started in a similar …

Most recently, Huawei tried to launch its high-end Mate 10 Pro, a phone with a 6-inch display, an AI-enabled chip and premium design to the US market with AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Both carriers, however, called out …
