More Ios 10 Parts Left Unencrypted In Beta 2

As you know, security experts were baffled realizing that the iOS 10 kernel in beta 1 was not encrypted. Apple argued it was no big deal because the kernel contained no user data so the company had left it unencrypted intentionally in order to increase general system performance, in their own words.

But Apple didn’t stop there.

As first discovered by prominent jailbreak developer and iPhone hacker, MuscleNerd, iOS 10 beta 2 actually leaves more parts of the operating system unencrypted.

What’s going on here?

Unencrypted, you say?

“It was no accident. Apple left even more images unencrypted in iOS 10 beta 2,” he tweeted.

As an example, 32-bit boot loaders (tiny programs designed to load a more complex kernel at boot time) and all RAM disks (virtual disks stored in the RAM) are left unencrypted in iOS 10 beta 2. In addition to the 64-bit portion of the iOS 10 kernel that was left unencrypted in beta 1, beta 2 actually leaves the whole kernel unencrypted, both the 32-bit and 64-bit version.

The image attached to MuscleNerd’s tweet indicates that iOS 10 beta 2 even does not encrypt the main file system (minus user data, of course). Again, Apple did come out and say the iOS 10 kernel was purposefully unencrypted so that security researchers would do their job for them so iOS 10 beta 2 is even more puzzling in that regard.

BTW, “SEP” on the image above stands for Secure Enclave (see further below) and ATV stands for the Apple TV. Keep in mind that Apple may still decide to fully encrypt all parts of iOS 10 in the final release.

Encryption: security vs speed

Encryption costs a lot in terms of speed. Just ask Google: although the Internet giant mandated that all flagship Android devices enable full disk encryption by default, it soon backtracked as users started complaining about abysmally slow performance with encryption turned on.

That’s because Android realizes encryption in software while Apple uses the power of its custom-designed silicon to provide robust encryption that doesn’t cause the system to become notably slower.

Say hello to Secure Enclave

On iOS devices from the iPhone 5s onward, the Secure Enclave, a tiny chip within the main Apple-designed application processor, is responsible for encrypting data as it’s written into flash storage and also processes Touch ID input, authenticates Apple Pay transactions.

Are you worried?

“The kernel cache doesn’t contain any user info, and by unencrypting it we’re able to optimize the operating system’s performance without compromising security,” was Apple’s explanation after reports that the first beta of iOS 10 came with an unencrypted kernel.

Conventional wisdom has it that leaving certain parts of iOS 10 unencrypted could help weaken the market for zero-day exploits. Apple does not have a bounty program for iOS bugs and the company actually likes the fact that the prices of premium iPhone hacks are so high.

FBI director James Comey said the agency paid at least $1.3 million for the hack which allowed them to gain access to San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5c beyond the Lock screen.

In fact, the black market prices for iPhone zero-day exploits is one of the “indirect metrics” Apple’s security teams take into account when evaluating how well they’re doing.

What’s your take on this finding?

Why did Apple leave additional parts of iOS unencrypted in iOS 10 beta 2? Is there a hidden agenda behind this or should we trust Apple when they say they’re optimizing iOS 10’s performance without compromising security?

Here’s What Is New In Ios 5 Beta 5

Wondering what’s new in iOS 5 Beta 5? Well, really not that much. At least nothing worth making a note of.

BGR published the change log of iOS 5 Beta 5, listing everything that is new or that has been fixed in this latest release…


When setting up an iCloud or MobileMe account using the setup assistant and leaving Find My iPhone on, it might actually turn Find my iPhone off after the setup. Please verify in Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendar/YourAccount that Find my iPhone is toggled On after leaving the setup assistant.

It is recommended that you disable Bookmarks on multiple accounts. If they are enabled, the results might be undefined.


Starting in iOS 5, video content in applications and websites are AirPlay-enabled by default.

iOS 5 supports AirPlay of video via AV Foundation.

Apple TV

Apple TV Software beta enables users to mirror the contents of an iPad 2 to an Apple TV (2nd generation) using AirPlay. This beta software also enables Photo Stream on Apple TV so users can access photos stored in iCloud. Apple TV Software beta is being provided to test the latest AirPlay functionality with your iOS 5 apps and web sites. If you wish to install Apple TV Software beta on your device, you must first register your device UDID in the iOS Developer Program Portal.


NEW: Pushing iCloud Calendar data is not working in iOS. To sync your iCloud Calendar, launch the Calendar app or refresh the calendars manually using the Calendars button in the top left corner.

Core Image

Several filters have been added since beta 1. The current list now includes the following filters:CIAdditionCompositing, CIAffineTransform, CICheckerboardGenerator, CIColorBlendMode, CIColorBurnBlendMode, CIColorControls, CIColorCube, CIColorDodgeBlendMode, CIColorInvert,CIColorMatrix, CIColorMonochrome, CIConstantColorGenerator, CICrop, CIDarkenBlendMode, CIDifferenceBlendMode, CIExclusionBlendMode, CIExposureAdjust, CIFalseColor, CIGammaAdjust,CIGaussianGradient, CIHardLightBlendMode, CIHighlightShadowAdjust, CIHueAdjust, CIHueBlendMode, CILightenBlendMode, CILinearGradient, CILuminosityBlendMode,CIMaximumCompositing, CIMinimumCompositing, CIMultiplyBlendMode, CIMultiplyCompositing, CIOverlayBlendMode, CIRadialGradient, CISaturationBlendMode, CIScreenBlendMode,CISepiaTone, CISoftLightBlendMode, CISourceAtopCompositing, CISourceInCompositing, CISourceOutCompositing, CISourceOverCompositing, CIStraightenFilter, CIStripesGenerator,CITemperatureAndTint, CIToneCurve, CIVibrance, CIVignette, and CIWhitePointAdjust


Match data for turn based matches is currently limited to 4 KB of data.

NEW: When logging in to Game Center, the password may clear and login may not complete. Trying a second time will succeed.

NEW: In this beta, GameKit Invites may fail. As a workaround, try restarting the device.


iBooks 1.2.2 may fail to display some text or images in books. Please update to iBooks 1.3 in the App Store.

iCloud Backup

iCloud Storage

During the iOS 5 beta period, any documents stored on the servers might be purged periodically before GM. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you do not store any critical documents or information on the servers.

If your application is using the NSMetadataQuery class, you must set a predicate, even though the predicate itself is ignored.

In this beta, the setSortDescriptors: method of NSMetadataQuery is not supported.

The container identifier string you pass to the URLForUbiquityContainerIdentifier: method of NSFileManager MUST include the team ID at the beginning of the string. As a convenience, if you pass nil, Foundation uses the first document container ID specified in your app’s entitlements.

There are issues using the Cloud Storage document API in conjunction with protected data which can lead to data corruption.

FIXED: In this beta, document-based applications cannot always detect when files change, move, or are deleted out from underneath them.

In this beta, file presenters (objects that adopt the NSFilePresenter protocol) do not receive some of the messages that they’re supposed to receive, especially:




You can workaround this by implementing the relinquishPresentedItemToWriter: method and checking to see if the writer actually wrote when your file presenter reacquires. You can also use FSEvents to observe file system changes

In this beta, messages about changes to files in a directory are not getting delivered to objects that adopt the NSFilePresenter protocol.

Install the profile. (The easiest way to do this is to mail it to yourself and open the attachment on their device.)

Reproduce the bug.

Sync with iTunes to pull the logs off your device.

Attach the logs to your bug report. You can find the logs in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/DeviceName/DiagnosticLogs.

These logs can grow large very quickly, so you should remove the profile after you have reproduced the problem and pulled the logs for the bug report.

NEW: File names are case-insensitive in OS X but case-sensitive in iOS. This can lead to problems when syncing files between the two. You should take steps on iOS to avoid creating files whose names differ only by case.


iMessage beta 1 will be unable to communicate with iMessage users on beta 2 or later.


NEW: When using the volume buttons on the device, or on headphones, the volume slider in the UI of applications may not update even though the volume level has changed.


The version of iTunes that comes with beta 5 cannot sync devices that have the beta 4 software installed. To avoid this problem, do the following:

Sync any devices that have beta 4 installed to the version of iTunes that came with beta 4.

Upgrade iTunes to the version that comes with beta 5.

Connect the device and install the beta 5 software. (Understand that you might see a failure to sync error when you first connect the device.)

After installing the beta 5 software, restore from your the backup you made in step 1.

Videos purchased from the iTunes Store do not play on a 2nd generation AppleTV over AirPlay with iTunes 10.5.


FIXED: The startMonitoringSignificantLocationChanges method of CLLocationManager does not cause applications to be resumed or launched in the background for significant location change updates. However, if a backup from a previous software version (where an application was monitoring significant location changes) is restored to the device, significant location change monitoring will continue to cause that application to be resumed or launched in the background.


FIXED: Forwarding a message with attachments included does not attach the file and the message compose screen does not change from “Loading….”

NEW: When changing the host name of an email account in settings, blank messages may be seen in the unified inbox. As a workaround, delete and re-add the account instead of changing its host name.

Music Library

FIXED: Some songs are missing their album artwork after changing the device library via syncing.


FIXED: In iOS 5.0 beta 4, several OpenGL ES extensions have been moved from the APPLE namespace to the EXT namespace, causing some API to be renamed. The altered extensions are EXT_color_buffer_half_float,EXT_occlusion_query_boolean, EXT_separate_shader_objects, EXT_shadow_samplers, EXT_texture_rg, EXT_debug_label, and EXT_debug_marker.

OTA Software Update

If you are doing an OTA software update, you will need to re-sync your photos with iTunes.”

Personal HotSpot

FIXED: In this beta, iPhone 4 device cannot join personal hotspot even if it is on due to a non functional Wi-Fi tethering on these devices.


FIXED: If you apply red-eye adjustments in iOS, and import your image into the iPhoto seed build, the red-eye adjustments will not appear on that image in iPhoto. As a result, subsequent syncing of your image back to the iOS device from iPhoto will not show the red-eye adjustments.

NEW: When restoring photo libraries from an iTunes backup, some photos may not appear in the Photos application after restore. Please back up your photos before updating to iOS Beta 5.


Location services are not functional in iOS 4.3 simulator running on Mac OS 10.7 with Xcode 4.2.


Push and local notifications for apps appear in the new Notification Center in iOS 5. Notification Center displays notifications that are considered “unread.” In order to accommodate push and local notifications that have no “unread” status, developers can use their application badge count to trigger a clearing of notifications from Notification Center. When an application clears its badge count (by setting it to zero), iOS 5 will clear its notifications from Notification Center.

FIXED: iOS 5.0 terminates VoIP applications that are resumed in the background for incoming network traffic with extreme frequency. Developers are encouraged to make sure all incoming data is read from VoIP sockets to avoid this condition.

NEW: The UIPrerenderedIcon key (in the Info.plist file) is not honored in this build.


NEW: In-App purchase will not work for developers testing their apps with the iTunes Sandbox.


FIXED: When tweeting your location from Safari and exiting before the location can be established, the location arrow will stay in the status bar. The arrow can be removed by killing Safari from the task switcher.

UI Automation

FIXED: Instruments overwrites the loaded automation script, even if another program is editing it.

FIXED: The play and record buttons in the Automation instrument script editor may not work properly after targeting an application that was launched by a trace session and has ended. They may also not work if you target an application that was suspended. If you run into this problem and it persists, you may need to close and reopen the trace document to get back into a functional state.

FIXED: When capturing actions into a script using the Automation instrument, interfaces with web views or table cells that contain a high number of off screen elements may take an extremely long time before returning with an expression.

Starting in iOS 5 beta 2, you can now trigger the execution of an UI Automation script on an iOS device from the host terminal by using the instruments tool. The command is:

When using the cli instruments for UI Automation you can now target the default Automation Template and pass the script and results path into the tool as environment variable options. For example:


Starting in iOS 5 beta 3, the exclusiveTouch property of UIControl has returned to its original default value of NO.

Returning nil from the tableView:viewForHeaderInSection: method (or its footer equivalent) is no longer sufficient to hide a header. You must override tableView:heightForHeaderInSection: and return0.0 to hide a header.

In the iOS 5 beta, the UITableView class has two methods to move one cell from one row to another with defined parameters. These APIs are:



Using the UIWebView class in Interface Builder, setting transparent background color is possible in iOS 5. Developers compiling against the new SDK can check their XIB for the UIWebView transparent setting.

In the iOS 5 beta, the UINavigationBar, UIToolbar, and UITabBar implementations have changed so that the drawRect: method is not called on instances of these classes unless it is implemented in a subclass. Apps that have re-implemented drawRect: in a category on any of these classes will find that the drawRect: method isn’t called. UIKit does link-checking to keep the method from being called in apps linked before iOS 5 but does not support this design on iOS 5 or later. Apps can either:

Use the customization API for bars that in iOS 5 and later, which is the preferred way.

Subclass UINavigationBar (or the other bar classes) and override drawRect: in the subclass.

The indexPathForRow:inSection:, section, and row methods of NSIndexPath now use NSInteger instead of NSUInteger, so that these types match with methods defined on UITableView.

Touch events are not getting forwarded to the view in the cameraOverlayView property of UIImagePickerController.

We have changed the behavior of scrollToRowAtIndexPath:atScrollPosition:animated: such that UITableViewScrollPositionTop and UITableViewScrollPositionBottom now adjust for the top and bottom portions of the contentInset property.


In iOS 5, a new inherited CSS property, -webkit-overflow-scrolling, is available. The value touch allows the web developer to opt in to native-style scrolling in an overflow:scroll element. The default value for this property is auto, which allows single-finger scrolling without momentum.

NEW: In beta 5, accessing sites that use client side SSL certificates does not work and may cause the application to crash.

The WebKit framework has picked up a newer WebKit engine, which closely matches Safari 5.1. Some areas to be aware of with the new WebKit framework on iOS:

There is a new HTML5-compliant parser.

Text layout width may change slightly because word-rounding behavior now has floating-point-based precision.

Touch events are now supported on input fields.

window.onerror is now supported.

There is a new user agent that does not have locale information in the User Agent string.

NEW: URLs are now canonicalized by making the scheme all lowercase. If a fake URL is used to pass information from a UIWebView back to native code, make sure that the scheme is always lowercase, or that the native code compares the scheme in a case-insensitive manner.

Wi-Fi Syncing

In iOS 5 beta 4 and later, wireless syncing is now available on Windows as well as the Mac. (This support requires OS X 10.6.8 or Lion.) You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.

In some cases, your device may fail to sync contacts, calendars and account settings, or back up to iTunes. If this happens, reboot your device and re-sync.

FIXED: In some cases, syncing photos may result in only thumbnails on your device. If this happens, unsync Photos then re-sync again.


FIXED: In beta 4, device restores using Xcode were disabled. This has been fixed. Device restores are now enabled and work in Xcode.

In some cases, Xcode 4.2 Organizer does not display a device that is in restore mode. As a workaround you can use iTunes to restore.

In iOS 5 beta 5, iOS Simulator is not compatible with previous releases of the iCloud Developer Seed for OS X. It is highly recommended that you update to the latest iCloud Developer Seed to ensure compatibility.

iOS 5.0 SDK supports both iOS 4.3 and iOS 5.0 simulators.

NEW: Xcode fails to build a Page-based template. You can work around this issue by adding the Core Graphics framework to your project.

Apple Is Opening An Online Repair Shop With Original Iphone Parts

We may earn revenue from the products available on this page and participate in affiliate programs. Learn more ›

Apple is going to start allowing everyday customers to repair their own devices, if they choose, with genuine Apple parts and tools. This new capability is available as part of Apple’s new Self Service Repair program, which the company announced on Wednesday. The move marks a striking evolution from the company’s previous attitude on the issue.

The program, which is expected to roll out early next year starting in the US, will first be in effect across the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups, and promises to later include Mac computers that pack M1 chips. Apple said that the initial phase will focus on the parts that are most commonly in need of repair, such as the device’s display, battery, and camera. Additional repair features could become available later in 2023.

Here’s how it’s going to work for people interested in being handy with their phones: After reading the Repair Manual, customers can place an order for the Apple parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store, which will sell more than 200 individual parts and tools related to the most frequent types of repairs on the latest iPhone models.

“Self Service Repair is intended for individual technicians with the knowledge and experience to repair electronic devices,” Apple said in a press release. “For the vast majority of customers, visiting a professional repair provider with certified technicians who use genuine Apple parts is the safest and most reliable way to get a repair.”

[Related: Apple just made it easier to get your old iPhone fixed]

Just over two years ago, Apple granted access to their parts, tools, and manuals to independent repair shops, which was in addition to their already-existing Apple Authorized Service Providers (AASPs) network.

However, the repair shop and website iFixit notes that Apple’s new program could come with caveats. For example, the Independent Repair Provider program has certain restrictions on software repair in which it doesn’t allow a provider to replace a broken part with one taken from another Apple device—only with one purchased from the parts shop. 

[Related: Microsoft is making it easier for customers to repair devices. Will other companies follow?]

“By controlling the parts marketplace, Apple can also decide when devices go obsolete,” iFixit’s Elizabeth Chamberlain wrote. Despite this, “having public information on Apple’s preferred approach to fixing its hardware with free repair manuals is a priceless win.” That’s because Apple has notoriously designed their devices to be hard to repair, and volleyed against past efforts to make fixing an iPhone easier. 

Chamberlain also referred to the move as “a remarkable concession to our collective competency.”

Apple is not the only big tech company expanding its right to repair options. Microsoft last month agreed to supply access to parts and information needed for repairs, joining the leagues of Dell, HP and Motorola, which have started to make their devices more repairable. Additionally, the Right to Repair legislation along with proposals in President Biden’s July 9 executive order could make tech companies more likely to start rolling out these types of offerings.

Microsoft Has Big Plans For Its Mobile Apps: More Sharing, More Collaboration

Something’s happening to the Outlook apps for iOS and Android. Quietly, they’ve begun to take on more and more responsibility—not just email, but calendaring and file information as well. 

It’s no accident. Smartphone apps began life as focused, single-purpose products, but Microsoft’s betting we’ll want more interconnectivity moving forward. Just as cosmic dust collected into stars and planets, then began rotating about one another, colliding and sometimes gobbling each other up, Microsoft’s mobile apps are being built to interact with each other, share information, work together.  Microsoft

Microsoft’s vision for its mobile apps: More sharing and interacting to surface the right data at the right time.

Think about Office 2023, launched earlier this week: a stable constellation of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and more. You can move easily between apps, snapping them to sides of the screen, and cutting and pasting data between them. You can even link one app to the next, through intermediaries like OneNote. Now take that concept mobile. 

“Twelve months ago we were all on this device, and everything was flat,” explained Julia White, the general manager of Office 365 product marketing at Microsoft, in an interview. “Calendar separate, People separate, Mail separate. Really lightweight, really fast. And as we’ve gone down that path a lot of people have said, ‘ I don’t want twenty-five apps. And with the success of Android, on Outlook, we were like, okay, point proven.”

Apps connecting, connecting, connecting

It’s not just the ease of moving data around, either. Microsoft increasingly has begun connecting one app to another. In the upcoming Office Planner, for example, the Planner Web app sends email to Outlook when a new task is assigned, and users can collaborate using the Outlook Groups component of Outlook 2023. Behind the scenes, the Office Graph is trying to pick and choose what’s most relevant to you for apps like Delve. And, of course, there’s Cortana, which is going to peer inside Outlook and know whether you have room for a 2 p.m. appointment, including travel time.

Mark Hachman

In Office 2023, upcoming apps like the Planner Hub will integrate tightly with Outlook.

The question is how far to take that trend: Do users really want a massive, monolithic Office app, or a bunch of special-purpose apps scattered around their phone? 

“Where it makes sense we’ll have a separate app, but that’s the direction we’re going,” White said. “Thoughtfully minimalistic.”

Delve: strong enough to stand alone?

A good example of the challenges Microsoft faces in the mobile space is its new Delve  app (known as Office Delve on Android and iOS), which represents the intersection of the two Office 2023 themes: collaboration and intelligence. Delve shows you information that you need to collaborate better—maybe it’s a shared sales plan, a key coworker, or the open enrollment documentation whose deadline is nearing.

Lacking any integrated communication capabilities, however, Delve currently is more a reference tool than anything else. It’s unclear whether Delve has a future has a standalone app, or whether it will be sucked into Outlook. (Note that Delve is not currently on Windows Phone, just iOS and Android.) 

One of the limitations of Delve is that it thinks of relevant information in certain predefined categories: documents, primarily, but also coworkers, and apparently calendar dates as well. The problem, of course, is if there’s a bit of relevant information that’s not in a document—such as an instruction from a coworker that’s in the body of an email. Delve will miss it. Over time, though, Delve may get smarter. Mark Hachman

Microsoft Delve on the desktop. It’s a better collector than communicator.

Javier Soltero ran the mobile email company Acompli, before Microsoft bought the company to improve the Outlook apps for Android and iOS. He’s now in charge of Outlook as a whole. As such, it’s his job to improve the overall intelligence of Outlook, tapping into the Office Graph, the complex web of documents and relationships that Microsoft is building around Office.

Delve is the earliest example of that. “I think for me the interesting part of Delve is not the app you see that shows you all the documents and so forth, it’s the Office Graph itself,” Soltero said. Office Graph pulls it all together, Soltero explained: “Under the hood, what the graph is bringing up is relevant content of various types, that is a combination of documents, email messages, people, calendar events, et cetera.”

It’s up to Delve to surface the content, Soltero continued. “The Delve app team is working to bring that to life, and in some sense is validating that is this the right stuff,” he said.

We can easily see that happening on a powerful desktop, but bringing that same sort of power to the phone is the next step, Soltero agreed. “That sort of serendipity is the thing that for sure should be baked into an Outlook mobile app.”

It’s interesting that the two Outlook apps already have a dumbed-down version of Delve inside them: the Files component, which simply lists the attachments you’ve received in reverse chronological order. But Files doesn’t use the Office Graph, and Soltero said in the future that will change. “We’re working to make that screen way more relevant,” he said of Files.

On mobile, those changes happen more frequently. Microsoft will release updates to the mobile apps weekly, with the desktop app updates rolling out as part of the monthly Office 365 cadence, Soltero said.

Microsoft’s apps need to get organized, too

Microsoft announced Outlook Groups for Android on Wednesday, yet another standalone app that would seem to be headed for consolidation. 

Outlook will remain the central organizing element, Soltero added. “Email is your personal knowledge base. It’s the perfect example of who is important to you, what is important to you, what was most recently important to you, and from whom.”

Microsoft already applies some intelligence to your Outlook inbox: Its mobile apps include a feature called “Focused Inbox,” which attempt to prioritize important email. Conversely, a feature called Clutter in Outlook 2023 weeds out unnecessary email that doesn’t quite qualify as spam. Neither, though, plucks a week-old email out of your inbox and shows it to you when you need it. Again, that’s something Microsoft is looking at.

“I can tell you that Outlook is headed in that direction,” Soltero said. “Discovery is best on Delve…but Outlook will be a focused search.”

One of the criticisms of Office has been, basically, that we’ve seen it all before. And it’s true that if you look at the mainstays of Office—PowerPoint, Excel, Word—little has changed. Outlook, however, has evolved in significance with Office Groups, which has formed its own little collaborative network with Delve and the upcoming Planner Hub.

Microsoft hasn’t baked that level of sophistication into apps like Word and PowerPoint. What will be interesting to see is how much emphasis those mainstays are given going forward, and how much development will be put into emerging stars like Outlook.

How To Download And Install Ios 15/ Ipados 15 Beta Without Developer Account

The WWDC 2023 conference has come to a close, and the iOS 15 beta is here. If you have an Apple developer account, you can download the iOS 15 beta on your iPhone with ease and explore all the new features in the latest iteration of iOS. But if you don’t have an Apple developer account, can you still get the iOS beta? Bother not, there is a workaround that can let you download and install iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 beta without a developer account. Follow along to get started.
