  1. The app, available for iOS and Android, allows an attacker to inject keystrokes. Three critical security flaws in the Intel Remote Keyboard application can allow an attacker to inject keystrokes and execute code on a connected machine. Intel has opted to discontinue the app instead of updating it, and users are directed to uninstall it right away. Alternative apps are available for both iOS and Android, and affected machines can still be connected to with wireless keyboards and mice. A critical flaw in the Intel Remote Keyboard app for iOS and Android has led to the decision by Intel to discontinue the app, and the company advises all users to uninstall it as soon as possible. Used in conjunction with Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) mini PCs and flashdrive-sized Intel Compute Stick, the Intel Remote Keyboard allowed users to control the small-form machines from a smartphone. The security advisory from Intel cites three separate CVEs affecting the app, and instead of issuing fixes for the bugs Intel has pulled it completely. An Intel spokesperson told Threatpost that the app was scheduled for discontinuation and its happening now was unrelated to the flaws. NUC and Compute Stick users who rely on the Intel Remote Keyboard are out of luck for now—there is no word from Intel on the release of a new version, and as of this writing the app has been pulled from both the Apple App Store and Google Play. The Remote Keyboard app allows users to connect to the NUC or Compute Stick using the Wi-Fi Direct protocol, which allows peer-to-peer connections between compatible devices. Wi-Fi Direct has had security issues in the past, though there's nothing to indicate Intel's flaw is due to the protocol instead of the Remote Keyboard app. An escalation of privilege attack both remote and local The three flaws mentioned by Intel paint a bleak picture of the Remote Keyboard's security. CVE-2018-3641 allows a network attacker to inject keystrokes as a local user, CVE-2018-3645 allows a local attacker to inject keystrokes into another remote keyboard session, and CVE-2018-3638 allows an authorized local attacker to execute arbitrary code as a privileged user. The vulnerabilities were rated (out of 10) a 9.0, 8.0, and 7.2, respectively, on the CVE risk scale. The three flaws affect all versions of the Intel Remote Keyboard, which may explain why Intel has decided to discontinue it instead of issuing a fix—the bug may be deep enough in the app's code that trying to fix it would necessitate a redesign. With the Intel Remote Keyboard app officially dead, NUC and Compute Stick users will have to make do with a wireless keyboard and mouse or another remote keyboard application, of which there are several for both iOS and Android available in their respective app stores.

  3. In November 2016, around seven hours after Abdul Razak Ali Artan had mowed down a group of people in his car, gone on a stabbing spree with a butcher's knife and been shot dead by a police officer on the grounds of Ohio State University, an FBI agent applied the bloodied body's index finger to the iPhone found on the deceased. The cops hoped it would help them access the Apple device to learn more about the assailant's motives and Artan himself. This is according to FBI forensics specialist Bob Moledor, who detailed for Forbes the first known case of police using a deceased person's fingerprints in an attempt to get past the protections of Apple's Touch ID technology. Unfortunately for the FBI, Artan's lifeless fingerprint didn't unlock the device (an iPhone 5 model, though Moledor couldn't recall which. Touch ID was introduced in the iPhone 5S). In the hours between his death and the attempt to unlock, when the feds had to go through legal processes regarding access to the smartphone, the iPhone had gone to sleep and when reopened required a passcode, Moledor said. He sent the device to a forensics lab which managed to retrieve information from the iPhone, the FBI phone expert and a Columbus officer who worked the case confirmed. That data helped the authorities determine that Artan's failed attempt to murder innocents may have been a result of ISIS-inspired radicalization. Where Moledor's attempt failed, others have succeeded. Separate sources close to local and federal police investigations in New York and Ohio, who asked to remain anonymous as they weren't authorized to speak on record, said it was now relatively common for fingerprints of the deceased to be depressed on the scanner of Apple iPhones, devices which have been wrapped up in increasingly powerful encryption over recent years. For instance, the technique has been used in overdose cases, said one source. In such instances, the victim's phone could contain information leading directly to the dealer. No privacy for the dead And it's entirely legal for police to use the technique, even if there might be some ethical quandaries to consider. Marina Medvin, owner of Medvin Law, said that once a person is deceased, they no longer have a privacy interest in their dead body. That means they no longer have standing in court to assert privacy rights. Relatives or other interested parties have little chance of stopping cops using fingerprints or other body parts to access smartphones too. "Once you share information with someone, you lose control over how that information is protected and used. You cannot assert your privacy rights when your friend's phone is searched and the police see the messages that you sent to your friend. Same goes for sharing information with the deceased - after you released information to the deceased, you have lost control of privacy," Medvin added. Police know it too. "We do not need a search warrant to get into a victim's phone, unless it's shared owned," said Ohio police homicide detective Robert Cutshall, who worked on the Artan case. In previous cases detailed by Forbes police have required warrants to use the fingerprints of the living on their iPhones. But there are some anxieties around the ability of the police to turn up at a crime scene and immediately start accessing deceased individuals' cellphones without any need for permission. Greg Nojeim, senior counsel and director of the Freedom, Security and Technology Project at the Center for Democracy & Technology, said it's possible in many cases there would be a valid concern about law enforcement using fingerprints on smartphones without any probable cause. "That's why the idea of requiring a warrant isn't out of bounds," Nojeim added. Alongside the lack of legal restrictions, the fingerprint method's much cheaper than having to pay a contractor like Cellebrite or U.S. startup GrayShift (whose iPhone hacking tech was revealed by Forbes earlier this month) to unlock a phone. Whilst Cellebrite is believed to charge between $1,500 and $3,000 for each iPhone, GrayShift's GrayKey hacking box costs up to $30,000 for unlimited unlock attempts. Once the phone's opened, the cops will keep it in that state and send the device to forensics experts. They'll then use tools like Cellebrite's UFED tech to draw all the information out for investigators to explore. More often than not, police will already have those forensics services on hand. Face ID hacks Police are now looking at how they might use Apple's Face ID facial recognition technology, introduced on the iPhone X. And it could provide an easier path into iPhones than Touch ID. Marc Rogers, researcher and head of information security at Cloudflare, told Forbes he'd been poking at Face ID in recent months and had discovered it didn't appear to require the visage of a living person to work. Whilst Face ID is supposed to use your attention in combination with natural eye movement, so fake or non-moving eyes can't unlock devices, Rogers found that the tech can be fooled simply using photos of open eyes. That was something also verified by Vietnamese researchers when they claimed to have bypassed Face ID with specially-created masks in November 2017, said Rogers. Secondly, Rogers discovered this was possible from many angles and the phone only seemed to need to see one open eye to unlock. "In that sense it's easier to unlock than Touch ID - all you need to do is show your target his or her phone and the moment they glance it unlocks," he added. Apple declined to comment for this article. Obviously, for the average user who's in control of their phone, there isn't much to worry about here. And there's no evidence police have opened victims' iPhones via Face ID. So far. "I don't know that's been used yet," said Moledor. "It's probably going to be same as using the fingerprint. As long as the subject is recognisable, it should work." Don't be surprised if cops do start holding iPhone X devices up to the faces of the dead in the near future then, if it hasn't happened already. As Cutshall said: "I've not be told there's a legal issue to use people's fingerprints or facial recognition to get into a phone... [if it's part of a legal process] that'd be something we would do."

  4. Google’s 2017 Android Security report is out, and alongside it, the company’s head of Android security David Kleidermacher has claimed that “Android is now as safe as the competition” despite high profile security issues that have dogged the platform for years, including the past 12 months. Kleidermacher’s claim comes during a tour of the media relating to the release of Google’s latest security review and as many around the internet are keen to point out, it’s not entirely accurate. For starters, a huge number of Android devices do not support Full Disk Encryption, something that is standard on iOS devices and has been for a number of years, too. As the folks over at AppleInsider note, Google appears to be pinning its hat on Google Play Protect, a mechanism by which the company checks apps that are uploaded to the Play Store in an attempt to weed out those that are up to no good. The good news is that it’s removing massive numbers of apps, but that’s also bad news in itself. The fact they were there in the first place is surely a concern for all working in Google’s Android Security team. Google noted that it removed 39 million bad titles automatically, so another ten million filtered out on the device means Google Play Protect managed to strain 49 million sewer downloads out of what it was actively delivering to users on Google Play. Google also points out that “devices that downloaded apps exclusively from Google Play were nine times less likely” to be compromised, something that backs up Apple’s belief that the idea of allowing the side-loading of apps is a recipe for disaster. While the App Store is not immune to having bad apps slip through the net, it’s fair to say the numbers are minuscule compared to those causing chaos on Android devices the world over. The real issue Google faces is the way Android updates are handled or, rather, not handled. Devices fall out of support far too soon after their release and some simply never receive major software updates. Security updates are more free flowing, but even they cease being released alarmingly quickly, something Google continues to try and address with limited success. Ultimately, until Google finds a way of forcing Android updates into devices quicker, and for longer, it will always be playing security catch-up. 2018 Security update availability report by Security Lab Redmondpie.com
  5. Twitter today announced the official launch of a new Bookmarks feature, which is designed to allow Twitter users to save tweets for later access. All tweets now feature an updated "share" icon that's used for both bookmarking and sharing tweets, and Twitter says the share icon is meant to make it easier to save and share privately or publicly. Bookmarking a tweet to save it for later can be done by tapping the share icon under a tweet and then choosing the "Add Tweet to Bookmarks" option. All saved tweets are located under the "Bookmarks" option that can be accessed from a person's profile icon menu. Found something historic? Don’t want to forget a joke? Article that you want to read later? Save the Tweet with Bookmarks, and come back to it whenever you want. Only you can see your Bookmarks. pic.twitter.com/fM2QLcOYNF — Twitter (@Twitter) February 28, 2018 Twitter Bookmarks are private, so no one can see which tweets have been bookmarked, unlike the "Like" option, which, prior to Bookmarks, has been a preferred method of preserving tweets. The new Bookmarks feature was first introduced in October and was developed as part of a company-wide Hack Week. Ahead of the debut of Bookmarks, Twitter shared regular details on its development. Twitter says Bookmarks are now rolling out globally on Twitter for iOS and Android, Twitter Lite, and mobile.twitter.com. Macrumors.com
  6. There may be multiple different players in the jailbreak community all looking to offer solutions, but we’ve always admired those who keep trying to produce great work for the benefit of device owners. That admiration is extended to CoolStar, most recently for his creation and publishing of the Electra jailbreak for iOS 11, and the fact that it’s been tirelessly updated. Well, there is now a new update available, and it’s one you’re going to want to take notice of as it features a very special addition. CoolStar and his band of highly-capable merry men have finally released the final 1.0.x version of Electra jailbreak, complete with Cydia Installer support built right in. This version of Electra jailbreak is deemed stable enough and hence is marked as 1.0 rather than any beta or RC. Just about anyone can go ahead and download it right now. For those who don’t know, Electra works with iOS 11.0-11.1.2 firmwares and is compatible with all 64-bit devices, including iPhone X, as long as those devices are running the aforementioned compatible firmwares. This is because Electra is based of Ian Beer’s exploit which was only applicable on iOS 11.0-11.1.2. Original released back as beta in January sans Cydia, this latest final version of the tool is the first jailbreak for iOS 11 which offers support for Cydia out-of-the-box. As for the jailbreak process, it pretty much remains exactly the same. Once the latest version of the Electra jailbreak is downloaded, and the IPA is sideloaded to the device, the jailbreak process will be exactly as it was previously, but this time with the added benefit of actually installing a usable version of Cydia to the device. And yes, that means that compatible tweaks and packages will be able to be installed through the Cydia interface. Here are important notes from changelog of Electra 1.0.x: An APFS snapshot is created of / so you may revert it at a later date if needed Substitute, Tweak Loader and Substrate Compatibility Layer available from Electra repo Many packages need to be updated for both Electra and iOS 11 (make sure they’re updated before installing as they may not work yet) It’s great news for device owners that CoolStar and his highly capable team have once again put the effort to the benefit of the jailbreak community even before Saurik could come up with his own “promised” jailbreak with iOS 11 Cydia update. Final version of Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 can be downloaded from coolstar.org/electra/. Once downloaded, you can follow our guide here on how to jailbreak your device using Electra: How To Jailbreak iOS 11.1.2 Using Electra With Cydia [Tutorial]. Redmondpie.com
  7. Apple had a shockingly bad week of software problems just before the end of 2017, and it looks like 2018 isn’t starting so well either. A new bug has been discovered in iOS 11 that lets people send a specific character that will crash an iPhone and block access to the Messages app in iOS and popular apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Outlook for iOS, and Gmail. Italian Blog Mobile World spotted the bug, and we’ve tested it successfully on multiple iPhones running iOS 11.2.5, and found it also works on the macOS versions of Safari and Messages. Apple plans to fix the problem in an iOS update before the release of iOS 11.3 this spring. The bug itself involves sending an Indian language (Telugu) character to devices, and Apple’s iOS Springboard will crash once the message has been received. Messages will no longer open as the app is trying and failing to load the character, and it appears that the only way to regain access to your iMessages is to have another friend send you a message and try to delete the thread that contained the bad character. We’ve also tested the bug on third-party apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Gmail, and Outlook for iOS and found that these apps can become disabled once a message is received. It might be difficult to fix and delete the problem message for apps like WhatsApp, unless you have web access enabled. Telegram and Skype appear to be unaffected. The public beta version of iOS 11.3 is also unaffected. It appears Apple was made aware of the problem at least three days ago, and plans to address it in an iOS update soon. Another iOS bug is crashing iPhones and disabling access to iMessage https://t.co/15Ripq7PP8 This isn’t the first time that iOS has crashed due to weird characters, URLs, or even videos. Last month a single link could freeze an iPhone, but Apple was able to resolve it with the release of iOS 11.2.5. Back in 2015 a tiny string of text disabled iMessage, and a year later in 2016 a 5-second video crashed iPhones. Apple also experienced issues with an iOS 11 bug in December that crashed iPhones, and the company took the unusual step of issuing a significant iOS update just hours after the bug started occurring. As Apple faces more security issues and software bugs, the company is reportedly focusing on reliability and performance in iOS 12 over new features. Reports suggest that Apple is taking a new approach to iOS updates, allowing engineers to push features to later releases instead of trying to cram them in for big annual updates. Some features have reportedly been pushed back as a result, allowing Apple to address some of the security and reliability issues discovered in both iOS and macOS recently. Update, 3:30PM ET: Apple plans to fix the issue in an update before the iOS 11.3 release this spring. Theverge.com
  8. How to download Kodi on your iPhone or iPad without jailbreaking There’s no need to jailbreak your beloved iPhone to get Kodi There is no official Kodi app that will allow you to use Kodi on your iPhone or iPad, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to download it. You can for instance just download the app from the Cydia software store if your phone is jailbroken. But for those of you who want to download Kodi without jailbreaking your iOS device, we’ve laid out the steps for you in this simple guide. What is Kodi? Previously known as XBMC (Xbox Media Centre), Kodi is a home media hub that uses free and open source software to let you listen to, watch, and play pretty much anything you want. By aggregating all your stored media into one location, Kodi makes the storing and streaming of all your digital media convenient and easy. While Kodi does not officially contain or create any of its own content, the highly customizable interface, from themes to plugins and add-ons, as well as an active developers community, makes the well-designed media hub a natural choice for power users. The Kodi app is available on the official site for download on all major operating systems, although you need to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad for the iOS versions to work. Two ways to download Kodi without jailbreaking your iOS device There are two ways to download Kodi onto your iOS device. The first is to download Kodi through TweakBox, and the second is with Cydia Impactor. The other route involves Xcode, but not only is it trickier, this option is only available to Mac users. Method 1: Download Kodi with TweakBox app Before we go into the instructions, it’s important to first note that TweakBox enables ads on its app, as does the Kodi app you’ll download from it. With that understood, here’s how you go about the process: On your iOS device, go to Safari and search www.tweakboxapp.com. Download the app and allow the site to show you a configuration profile. Install the profile and select ‘Install’ again. The TweakBox app should now be on your home screen. Open the app and click away any ads that pop up. Go to ‘APPS’ then select TweakBox Apps under ‘Categories’. Search for Kodi in the search bar and install it. Before you open the Kodi app, go to Settings > General > Profile and Devices Management. Click under ‘Enterprise App’ and click ‘Trust “...”’. Click ‘Trust’ again and Kodi should now be on your home screen and ready to use! Another thing to note about this method is that because TweakBox is a third-party source, Apple may sometimes revoke the app’s certificate, meaning you’ll have to wait until the company greenlights the Kodi iOS app again to then be able to use it. Method 2: Download Kodi with Cydia Impactor Cydia Impactor was produced by the same developer of Cydia, Jay Freeman, and sideloads the Kodi IPA file from your computer to your iPhone or iPad – it works on Mac, Windows, and Linux machines. Here’s how this method works: Download Cydia Impactor and the latest Kodi IPA file for iOS, which you can find here. Connect your device to your computer and close iTunes if it opens. Extract the Impactor file and drag the Kodi IPA file onto the app. Select your device in the drop-down menu and press Start. Use your Apple ID login to sign the file and the app should start installing. Once installation is complete go to Settings > General > Profiles & Devices Management and open the Apple ID profile used to download the app. Click ‘Trust’ and you can now open the Kodi app from your home screen. Kodi add-ons Once you have the Kodi app downloaded, you can start adding your own add-ons to customize your Kodi experience. If you know what add-on you want, you can browse from Kodi’s own list of add-ons. If not, we’ve compiled a short list of the best legal add-ons to get you started. YouTube: The YouTube add-on works just like its website: you can search for videos, channels, and the top trending videos. If you sign in, you’ll also be able to access your personalized recommendations. Located in the official Kodi library, you will find it in the video add-ons section of your Kodi add-on menu. SpotiMC: As one of the most popular music streaming services in the world, it’s a little strange that Spotify wouldn’t have an official add-on for Kodi. There is however an unofficial add-on, SpotiMC, which you can download as a ZIP file. Once you install the file through Kodi, you can find the add-on in Kodi Emby Beta Addons > Music Addons > Spotify. Launch the app and authenticate your Spotify account to grant SpotiMC access. Apple iTunes Podcast Browser: While there are plenty of options for podcast apps, iTunes has one of the largest collections of podcasts for you to choose from. This massive library makes up for its plain interface, although at least the UI makes it easy to navigate through all the different genres. You can download this one from Kodi’s official library. Twitch: Slightly similar to YouTube, Twitch is a live streaming platform mostly for gamers, although there are non-gaming streams too. Use this add-on to watch others play and get involved in chat. Download the add-on from the Kodi library. Pro tip: Always use a VPN Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to stream content from third-party add-ons is crucial to your streaming experience for several reasons, not least of which is its ability to provide an anonymous connection that will prevent your ISP, your government, or other parties from tracking your streaming activity. A good VPN will also prevent any throttling from your ISP, and even bypass the geoblocking of certain streaming services. Also, the benefits of a VPN extend beyond just Kodi. Check out our roundup of the best VPNs on the market right now. SOURCE
  9. Last year, we reported that Microsoft is working on a Photos Companion app for Android and iOS; the app serves as a way for users to wirelessly sync photos from their smartphone with the Photos app on Windows 10. Today, Microsoft has officially released the app on both platforms. The app itself has a very straightforward interface detailing the steps necessary to get things going. Users are required to scan a QR code generated by the Photos app on PC with the companion on mobile. After that, select images to transfer over to the computer. Both devices must also be on the same Wi-Fi network and the latest version of the Photos app, 2018.18011.13110.0 or higher, on PC is required. Microsoft notes that Photos Companion aims to ease the struggle of quickly transferring images between mobile and PC. Previously users would have to resort to methods like USB, Bluetooth, or cloud transfer — the app seems to offer a less tedious, streamlined process for photo sharing. You can now download the Photos Companion app on Android and iOS. Source Source #2
  10. The news that the iPhone’s iBoot bootloader had been leaked in source code form was described as the “biggest leak in history” by one researcher, but Apple has poured cold water on such a claim, saying that the code leaked is three years old and that even if it was a recent copy, Apple’s security does not rely on secrecy in order to function. Motherboard reported the leak last night after what appeared to be the source code for iBoot was leaked online. Apple obviously issued a takedown notice for that code, and while it was accessible by the world for a number of hours, it has now been removed entirely. That, of course, doesn’t mean it will not pop up again and the fact Apple sought to have it taken down at all, along with a subsequent statement, confirms its authenticity. In a statement given to CNET, Apple is playing down the significance of the leak. “Old source code from three years ago appears to have been leaked, but by design the security of our products doesn’t depend on the secrecy of our source code. There are many layers of hardware and software protections built into our products, and we always encourage customers to update to the newest software releases to benefit from the latest protections,” Apple said in a statement. Based on Apple’s claims of the source code’s age, it would appear that it is based on iOS 9-era software, likely rendering it useless with regard to modern versions of the operating system, at least that is what Apple says. Apple’s claims that the security of its devices does not depend on secrecy is an interesting one, and may come as a surprise. No matter what the security implications are, we cannot imagine a world where Apple was not hunting for a leak during today. Redmondpie.com
  11. This afternoon Apple released the newest version of iOS for iPhone and iPad, iOS 11.3 (in public beta form.) Users will be able to download this software whenever they get the opportunity, starting earlier today. Users with an iPad or iPhone released in the past 3 years will be able to make with all the download’n right this minute. To download the newest version of iOS in beta form, first you’ll need to head over to the Apple Public Beta Software program page. There you’ll be told all the requirements and small print surrounding this download. There’s more than you’d think there is. After you’ve done that, come right back here immediately! After signing up for the Beta, users will want to head to Settings – General – Software Update. Once in Software Update, there should be a button right up front and center that will prompt the device to check for new software. If you’re not already on the newest version of iOS, your iPhone or iPad will tell you you’re ready to download that update Download the update from the Software Update page and plug your iPhone or iPad in to load the update. Don’t be surprised if it takes a few minutes, but if it takes more than 15, you might want to call Apple for help. Because that just ain’t right. If you’d like to update using iTunes software on your desktop computer, you’ll want to open iTunes first. Once iTunes is open on your desktop computer, you’ll want to plug your iPhone or iPad in with a USB cord. Your device should appear in iTunes once you’ve plugged it in. Select Device in iTunes and select the device you’ve plugged in. Click Summary – Check for Update – Download – Update. From there, you’ll likely be asked for your Apple password, and your download should begin. Have a peek at the timeline below for additional insight on this update, and have a nice day! source

  14. The iOS version of Edge uses the same WebKit engine that powers Apple's Safari, while the Android Edge is based on the Blink engine Google maintains for Chrome. Microsoft Microsoft on Thursday announced that it had created iOS and Android versions of its struggling Edge browser, and would make both available to users for testing. The company cast the Edge variations as critical to flesh out the Windows 10 feature known as "Continue on PC," which will debut with the Fail Creators' Update, aka 1709 upgrade, set to begin shipping Oct. 17. The feature links a specific phone - or tablet - to a Windows 10 personal computer, then automatically hands off certain in-progress tasks, such as a half-finished Office document opened in a browser, from one device to the other. "What makes Microsoft Edge [on iOS or Android] really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you're looking at right on your PC - or save it to work on later," Joe Belfiore, a Microsoft executive, wrote in a post to a company blog. Continue on PC roughly resembles the "Handoff" feature - and more generally, something called "Continuity" - that Apple introduced in 2014 with OS X Yosemite on Macs and iOS 8 on iPhones and iPads. "Consumers aren't going to care much about this, but [enterprise employees] working on Office 365 that have a meeting, they can grab their phone and fix [a document] in the car or on a plane," said Jack Gold, principal analyst at J.Gold Associates. "That could end up being a big deal." What might be only a minor convenience for a consumer, Gold added, could be a selling point for Windows 10 in the enterprise. And the latter is the customer category that Microsoft cares the most about: The enterprise is where it bags the bulk of its revenue. "Microsoft is all about the enterprise market," Gold continued. Microsoft Microsoft's Edge variations for iOS and Android are designed to work with a Windows 10 feature known as "Continue on PC." Neither of the new Edge browsers was built atop the rendering engine Microsoft uses for Edge on Windows 10 - until now, the only supported OS. Instead, the iOS Edge relies on the same WebKit engine that powers Apple's Safari, while the Android Edge is based on the Blink engine that Google maintains for Chrome. In the case of iOS, using WebKit is a requirement for third-party browsers if they're to be hosted in Apple's App Store, the only sanctioned software mart. In a different company blog, Sean Lyndersay, principal program manager for Edge, failed to mention that limitation, implying that Microsoft had a choice in the matter and picked WebKit on iOS because it was "the core web platform technology" on Apple's operating system. At the same time, Lyndersay felt it necessary to quash any potential talk that these moves presaged Microsoft abandoning its own EdgeHTML engine. "We are proud of the work we've done with EdgeHTML on Windows 10 ... [and] are fully committed to continuing to do so into the future, across the full spectrum of Windows 10 platforms and form factors," Lyndersay said. The iOS versions of Google's Chrome and Mozilla's Firefox were also built atop Safari's edition of WebKit because of Apple's mandate. But Microsoft is not expanding Edge onto iOS and Android from a position of strength on Windows 10. Third-party analytics vendors pegged Edge's share of the Windows 10 base at an all-time low of just 18% last month, meaning 82% of those running Windows 10 turned to another browser in September. Edge's share of Windows 10 has fallen for more than two years; in mid-2015 it started at 36%, but had faded to 24% by the same time in 2016. While Edge could recover, the trend does not hint at a comeback. With Edge so little loved, why did Microsoft go to the work of crafting versions for iOS and Android, even if the job didn't involve porting the browser's native rendering engine? "They had to," was Gold's blunt assessment. "Edge is their web platform of choice, and many of the cloud capabilities, especially for business, rely on the browser. Cortana is key, long term, to them. Some of the analytics capabilities in both consumer and business do, too," said Gold. It makes sense for Microsoft to promote Edge, rather than rely on a rival browser brand, for iOS and Android, even if Edge on those platforms is just a wrapper around others' rendering engines, Gold said. "If enterprises look at Chrome as an option, what's to keep them from looking at Google Docs?" Gold asked, talking about the Google suite of browser-based productivity applications. "Microsoft may not want to be in this space," he added referring to the iOS and Android ecosystems, "but if you're an enterprise support iOS and Android, they'll give you a browser to run." Only Windows Insiders participants were eligible for the iOS Edge preview on iPhones. Support for iPads will be added at a later date, Microsoft said. Meanwhile, the beta of Android Edge for phones will open "soon," with a tablet version due after that. This site includes additional information about the iOS Edge preview. By yesterday, Microsoft had closed the iOS Edge beta, saying it had reached the 10,000-user maximum allowed by Apple.

  15. Mozilla will release Firefox 56.0 to the Stable channel on September 29th, 2017. The new Firefox version will be made available to all users of the Stable channel. The new version of the browser can best be described as a minor release in anticipation of the biggest Firefox release in history: Firefox 57. All Firefox channels are or have been updated to a new release version. Firefox Stable to version 56, Firefox Beta and Developer to version 57, and Firefox Nightly to version 58. The Firefox ESR update brings the version to 52.4. Executive Summary Firefox 56 is the last Stable version of Firefox that supports legacy add-ons. Firefox 57 Stable will support only WebExtensions. Firefox on Android ends support for devices running Android 4.0. Firefox for Android does not support Flash anymore. The Firefox Page Shot tool is available universally now. Firefox 56.0 download and update Existing Firefox users who have automatic updates enabled in the browser -- which is the default setting -- will be updated automatically to Firefox 56.0 once Mozilla publishes it. Firefox does not check for updates in real-time though; you can run a manual check for updates by selecting Menu > Help > About Firefox. Firefox displays the current version in a new window, and runs an update check to find out if a new version is available. This new version will be downloaded and installed automatically by default if that is the case. Direct download links for Firefox installation files: Firefox Stable download Firefox Beta download Nightly download Firefox ESR download Firefox unbranded builds information Firefox 56.0 Changes Firefox Screenshots Firefox's built-in Page Shot tool is available to all users of the browser now. The tool lets you capture part of a web page or all of it, and save it locally or online for easy sharing. Check out our overview of Firefox Screenshots here. It explains how the tool works, and how you can disable it in case you don't need it. Firefox preferences changes Firefox 56.0 ships with a redesigned preferences interface that introduces new features and changes to it. You can load about:preferences to open the starting page of the Firefox options, or click on Menu and select Options from it to do the same. One major change is the integration of a search field that you may use to find preferences quickly. Type cookies for instance, and you get all cookies related preferences displayed to you so that you may interact with them directly. The preferences display four entry points instead of the larger number of pages in Firefox 56.0. You may load them using the following addresses: General: about:preferences#general Search: about:preferences#search Privacy & Security: about:preferences#privacy Firefox account: about:preferences#sync We talked about the change back in early 2017 when it rolled out to Nightly versions. Basically, what the redesign means is that you do less clicking but more scrolling to go through all of the preferences. Mozilla notes that it has updated descriptions to make it clearer how settings affect browsing. Other Firefox 56.0 changes Firefox won't auto-play media anymore that is opened in a background tab. Hardware acceleration support for AES-GCM (most widely used cipher according to Mozilla). Performance improvements on all desktop systems. Safe Browsing protocol updated to version 4. Security improvements for verifying file downloads. Updates are roughly 20% smaller in size when they are downloaded via Firefox's built-in updating system. New Rust character encoding standard-compliant implementation. Form Autofill rollout to En-US. Firefox 56.0 Issues Firefox may crash on startup if RelevantKnowledge adware is installed on the device. Remove it by running software such as AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes Free, or other security software. 64-bit versions of Firefox may crash on Windows 7 if Lenovo's "OneKey Theater" software is installed. Mozilla suggests to re-install a 32-bit version of Firefox to fix the issue. Developer Changes rel="preload" implemented to preload resources that can be cached. (bug 1222633) Intl API enabled on Android (bug 1344625) Firefox for Android does not support plugins anymore. (bug 1381916) URLs are encoded internally by Gecko using punycode to avoid encoding issues. (bug 945240) Firefox on Windows and on Mac OS X can be run in headless mode using the -headless flag. (bug 1355150 and bug 1355147) Lots of WebExtensions changes (see developer link in the resource section below for a full list). Support for <applet> has been dropped. Firefox 56.0 for Android Only a handful of changes in Firefox for Android, but they are major: Flash support is discontinued. Firefox for Android does not support Android 4.0 anymore. Performance and power consumption improvements for WebRTC through the use of hardware encoders. Support for WebExtensions improved. Security updates / fixes Security changes are announced after the official release. We will update the review when Mozilla publishes them.
