  1. How to set up a VPN in iOS manually Earlier we told you how to configure custom DNS and Apple Safari in iOS. Continuing with our security focused tutorials, we are going to teach you how to set up a VPN in iOS manually. Normally, when you buy a VPN subscription, you will use the app provided by the service. These VPN apps are designed for simplicity, and employ a login-and-use method. While that is the easiest way to get a VPN working on your device, it isn't the only way. Depending on the app in question, it may also not be the best way if you experience stability or performance issues when you use an application to connect to a VPN server. Say, if you want to use a VPN connection in a specific protocol (IKEv2, IPSec, L2TP) or to connect to your workplace's VPN, you will need to configure the settings manually on your iPhone or iPad. It can enhance your security greatly but at a cost, you will only be able to connect to a particular server that you select. To change the server, you'll need to edit the VPN configuration again, as opposed to merely tapping a button in the app to select a different server location. How to set up a VPN in iOS manually Open the Settings app. Navigate to the "General" section and scroll down till you see the "VPN" option. Note: If you have already used a VPN before, you may have a "VPN" toggle in the side bar of the Settings screen. That's literally just a switch, and cannot be used to configure the VPN. You will need to follow step 2, to set up the connection. Tap on "Add VPN Configuration". Select the VPN type: IKEv2 or IPSec or L2TP. Enter the following details in the VPN configuration screen. For IKEv2 Description - Give it a name Server - The IP address of the VPN server you want to connect to. Remote ID - Enter the same IP address. Local ID - Not required. Leave it blank. User Authentication - Username/Certificate Username - Your VPN account's username. Password - The password for the account. Proxy - Off Note: Username is the easier option of the two, but some VPNs may not support it. In that case, you will be asked to install a security certificate on your device, to communicate with the VPN's servers. 6. Hit Done in the top right corner of the screen. 7. Enable the VPN from the toggle on the side bar, or from the VPN settings page. You will need to visit the support portal of your VPN service to get the manual configuration details (also called native protocols) which you need to enter in the VPN set up screen. This method is common across all recent versions of iOS. I tested this on iOS 13 beta and it works flawlessly on both IPSec and IKEv2. In case the VPN connection failed, you don't have to start from scratch. Just go back to the VPN section in iOS' settings, and use the "Edit" option to modify the fields. Please be aware that some VPN services use a different authentication method for manual settings. Using your regular account username and password will not authenticate the connection. You may be required to use your account's dashboard to create a new configuration. This will generate a random username and password to authenticate your account for the specific protocol. Just FYI, there is a new protocol called WireGuard, which promises faster encryption and better speeds. It isn't available for use yet, but is expected to be supported by all major services and operating systems. Source: How to set up a VPN in iOS manually (gHacks)
  2. The six bugs, if sold on the black market, would have brought in well over $5 million. Two members of Project Zero, Google's elite bug-hunting team, have published details and demo proof-of-concept code for five of six "interactionless" security bugs that impact the iOS operating system and can be exploited via the iMessage client. All six security flaws were patched last week, on July 22, with Apple's iOS 12.4 release. Details about one of the "interactionless" vulnerabilities have been kept private because Apple's iOS 12.4 patch did not completely resolve the bug, according to Natalie Silvanovich, one of the two Google Project Zero researchers who found and reported the bugs. Four bugs lead to no-user-interaction RCEs According to the researcher, four of the six security bugs can lead to the execution of malicious code on a remote iOS device, with no user interaction needed. All an attacker needs to do is to send a malformed message to a victim's phone, and the malicious code will execute once the user opens and views the received item. The four bugs are CVE-2019-8641 (details kept private), CVE-2019-8647, CVE-2019-8660, and CVE-2019-8662. The linked bug reports contain technical details about each bug, but also proof-of-concept code that can be used to craft exploits. The fifth and sixth bugs, CVE-2019-8624 and CVE-2019-8646, can allow an attacker to leak data from a device's memory and read files off a remote device --also with no user interaction. While it is always a good idea to install security updates as soon as they become available, the availability of proof-of-concept code means users should install the iOS 12.4 release with no further delay. Bugs worth well over $5 million The bugs were discovered by Silvanovich and fellow Google Project Zero security researcher Samuel Groß. Silvanovich will be holding a presentation about remote and interactionless iPhone vulnerabilities at the Black Hat security conference that will be held in Las Vegas next week. "There have been rumors of remote vulnerabilities requiring no user interaction being used to attack the iPhone, but limited information is available about the technical aspects of these attacks on modern devices," reads an abstract of Silvanovich's talk. "This presentation explores the remote, interaction-less attack surface of iOS. It discusses the potential for vulnerabilities in SMS, MMS, Visual Voicemail, iMessage and Mail, and explains how to set up tooling to test these components. It also includes two examples of vulnerabilities discovered using these methods." Silvanovich's talk is set to garner a lot of attention next week. Until today, no-user-interaction iOS bugs were usually found in the arsenal of exploit vendors and makers of legal intercept tools and surveillance software. Such vulnerabilities are the holy grail of any attacker, allowing them to hack into victims' devices undetected. When sold on the black market, vulnerabilities like these can bring a bug hunter well over $1 million, according to a price chart published by Zerodium. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Silvanovich just published details about exploits worth well over $5 million, and most likely valued at around $10 million. Another exploit vendor, Crowdfense, told ZDNet that considering the no-click attack chain and the fact that the vulnerabilities worked on recent versions of iOS exploits like these could easily be valued between $2 million and $4 million each, for a total value of between $20 million and $24 million.

  3. The closed beta of the highly anticipated Minecraft Earth will launch within the next two weeks on iOS, with the Android version to follow soon. The information was shared in a blog post on the official Minecraft website, in which it was also said that the number of participants in the closed beta will be limited in numbers and locations. Players’ progress will occasionally be reset while the various features of the game are being developed and tested. These are pretty standard characteristics of closed beta releases. The sign-up sheet is still open for players who would like to try their luck at being chosen as one of the closed beta testers of the augmented reality version of Minecraft. The only requirements are that the applicant should be at least 18 years old, with a smartphone that runs on either Android 7.0 Nougat or iOS 10. Applicants will also need to input their Microsoft or Xbox Live account, both of which may be created for free. In exchange for signing up, players will receive an exclusive skin. Chosen participants will be informed through an invitation email, but being selected comes with the responsibility of playing Minecraft Earth at least once every seven days. Players who cannot find time to test the app will lose their spot to someone else who will be a more active participant. The launch on iOS first for the Minecraft Earth closed beta is not a surprise, as the first glimpse of live gameplay was shown at Apple’s WWDC. A specific launch date was not specified, but given the two-week time frame for the release of the closed beta for the iOS, it will arrive within the month. Minecraft Earth will be a free-to-play game that will heavily use AR technology, as it will always map in-game elements to the real world. The game will feature Tapables, which are things that players can tap on their screens to gather rewards, and Adventures, which are mini-games linked to specific real-world locations. Minecraft Earth will continue the success of Minecraft, which has sold more than 176 million copies as of May, possibly making it the best-selling video game of all time. Source
  4. Strongbox Password Safe is a free, open-source KeePass client for iOS Many privacy/security conscious users, including myself, prefer to use KeePass. After all a free, actively supported, open-source application, that stores your logins in an encrypted database on your local storage is hard to beat. Strongbox Password Safe is a free, open-source KeePass client for iOS which I personally prefer to use . iOS used to have a ton of great KeePass clients, but a lot of them have been abandoned for over 2 years. A new app called KeePassium is currently in open beta. Also free, and open-source, with a better looking UI, it does seem promising. But, let's focus on why Strongbox is a good choice. Cloud-based services like LastPass, and the open-source Bitwarden, may provide a lot of options when it comes to Password Managers on iOS (and other platforms). They are free to use on all platforms, and hence people often opt for convenience when it comes to mobile devices. The auto-fill feature is especially useful on a smartphone. Strongbox provides the same functionality, and offers a lot more privacy. For one, it doesn't store your database on its servers. You decide where the database is stored and accessed from. You can create a new database using Strongbox or import an existing database. The latter has the following options to choose from. One Drive Google Drive Dropbox WebDAV SFTP Copy from URL Files (Local Storage) Strongbox Password Safe supports KeePass 1 (KDB 1) and KeePass 2 (KDBX 3.1/KDBX 4.0) and Password Safe 3 (PSAFE3) database formats. Note: If you choose a cloud-storage service, it is advisable to use the corresponding service's app on all your devices to keep them up to date. For example, I use the Dropbox app on my computer, Android phone and iPad to sync my KeePass database (.KDBX) across all 3 devices. Selecting a cloud service will require you to authenticate the Strongbox app to access your account. Once you have done that, you will need to select the database that you wish to use. It is perfectly safe to store your KeePass database on the cloud, since it will be encrypted and requires the master password that you set, to decrypt it but that is not a requirement. Just make sure you use a strong password. For added security, always enable 2FA (Two-factor authentication) for your Dropbox/Google Drive/One Drive accounts. You can optionally set the database to be accessed in read-only mode if you wish. I wouldn't really advise using the "Allow empty password" option. Once your database has been added to the app, tap on it to open the database. The app displays the information using a two-pane view. The left pane has all your folders, and accounts which aren't stored in any folder. Tap a folder or account name to open it. The details of the selected account will be displayed on the right pane. This includes the FavIcon of the website, the title of the login, your username and password (hidden by default, can tap to view), the URL for logging in to the account, and any metadata if available. You can edit any of the fields or add a custom field using the "Edit" option. You can sort the list from the toolbar on the bottom. This is where you can also manage the program's settings, which includes options to change your master password, export the database, etc. It also displays some interesting options such as the total number of usernames, how many of those are unique, including the number of unique passwords, most used username, the database format, etc. Tip: Navigate to the iOS Settings > Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords and select Strongbox. This allows you to use the app's autofill feature in Safari and other apps. To use the feature, open any website where you have an account, hit the sign in option, and the keyboard should pop-up when you tap the login field. Select the displayed "login". It will have the word Strongbox above it, and you're good to go. Password Generation, Auto clear clipboard and Advanced Options There is a gear icon in the top right corner of the Strongbox UI, which you can use to generate secure passwords. This can be handy if you are creating new accounts, or replacing old passwords. There are some other useful options like the new entry defaults, that can also be useful for adding new entries. It lets you set the autofill options for forms with a default username (can be your most used one), or custom username, and even lets you save a randomly generated password. The Auto clear clipboard option is a must use one, though it is disabled by default. You can set it to as low as 30 seconds to a maximum of 3 minutes. There is a similar Database automatic locking option, but this one is pre-enabled. The best feature in the app is perhaps the App Unlock failure setting, which you can customize. It allows the application to delete all databases, local files, caches, etc that are related to Srongbox after a certain number of failed attempts. So, in case someone gains access to your device and tries to break in to your database, the app will protect your information by auto deleting them. Optional paid features My only gripe with Strongbox is that the search database option is not available in the app for free. You have to pay to use that feature. There are a couple of subsctiption options that you can opt-for, or a one-time fee for a lifetime license that unlocks this feature among others. Strongbox Password Safe Pro supports Touch ID and PIN Code, i.e., you can use the fingerprint scanner on your iPhone or iPad or the screen unlock code, to quickly access your database. The only other feature that the PRO version has is support for KeePass FavIcons. But really, I'm nitpicking here. Given the lack of other KeePass clients, and the fact that I rarely search for passwords, I'm fine with the freemium model that Strongbox employs. You can try the Pro features for free for 91 Days, if you like to. If you're an Android user, I can vouch for Keepass2Android. It is available in 2 versions: One which works offline, and another with cloud-storage sync. Source: Strongbox Password Safe is a free, open-source KeePass client for iOS (gHacks)
  5. Dr. Mario World by Nintendo for Android: first look Dr. Mario World is Nintendo's latest mobile game. The game is now available for Android and iOS devices, and gamers from all over the world can download and install the game on their mobile devices. Dr. Mario World is a free to play game with in-app purchases. The game is a mobile remake of Dr. Mario, a game released in 1990 by Nintendo for various systems including the Game Boy, NES and SNES. First, the basics. You can download Dr. Mario World from Google Play and install it on the device. The game can be played without account and you can get started right away after launch. Dr. Mario World requires an active Internet connection, the game cannot be played offline. Dr. Mario World Dr. Mario World is an action puzzle game that modifies the concept of the original Dr. Mario game in some key aspects. The main objective of the game is to destroy viruses using capsules; this works similarly to Tetris. Unlike in Dr. Mario, gameplay has been turned 180 degrees. Viruses are at the top and capsules are pushed from the bottom to the top; Nintendo did not reveal why it made the decision but the bottom approach improves the handling and one-hand usage. Players have a limited number of capsules in a level. They may rotate the capsules and push them towards to the viruses. Capsules can be rotated even when they are already on their way and you may also move them to the left or right. The first levels act as an introduction to main game concepts. Nintendo introduces different viruses and other elements such as blocks that players need to take into account. Regular capsules are split into two parts that may have different colours. Viruses are removed when capsules are connected to viruses of the same colour provided that the linked structure has a size of at least three vertically or horizontally. New game elements are introduced regularly, e.g. Koopa shells that remove viruses when it hits them, bombs that destroy anything around them, bottles that fill up the character's skill meter, or rainbow capsules that act as wildcards. Once you reach level 10 you may select a different doctor to play. You start the game playing Mario but may switch to Princess Peach or Bowser once you reach that level. Characters have different skills that may help you play the game. Once you finish the first stage, you get to choose your first assistant. Assistants add their own sets of unique skills to the game. The first that you may get, Goomba, adds 1% to the score. The game world is divided into different areas, comparable to the stages in Super Mario World games. The "real" game begins in the second stage; it is here that your live limit is set so that you may run into a situation where you end up without any lives left. Lives are required to play levels and when you run out of them you either have to wait for them to fill up again or make a purchase. In-game purchases Dr. Mario World supports in-game purchases to buy special items and the in-game currency diamonds. Diamonds are used to fill up hearts or continue playing a level when the game over sign appears. You may also purchase characters. Purchases are not required to play the game but they certainly help speed things up or master difficult levels. Please note that I this may change in later stages and levels, I did not make it this far yet, though. Challenges and Versus Mode Challenges are introduced in world 2 that add a time limit to levels. Unlike regular levels, challenge levels are quite difficult to beat because of the time limit and layout of the level. Dr. Mario World supports a versus mode (hence the name). You may play against friends or random players from all around the world. Versus mode is a fast pace game mode in which you try to clear the level faster and build up skill to defeat the opposing player. Versus mode is an independent game mode that you can play all the time as it is not linked to the lives of the regular mode. Good to spend time playing the game if you run out of lives and don't want to make a purchase. Closing Words Dr. Mario World is a well designed puzzle game for mobile devices. It features a single-player mode and versus mode, and should keep Mario and puzzle fans entertained for a while. The game features in-game purchases but Nintendo made a wise decision not to push these forcefully in the game so that the game can be played without ever needing to make purchases.

  6. It redesigned the 'sick' poker game for the App Store's anniversary. In a surprise move, Apple has revived its Texas Hold’em game for iOS today. The update to the original game comes in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the App Store and has been redesigned to include new characters, improved graphics, more challenging gameplay, and much more. Apple highlighted the Texas Hold’em history and noted some of the updates to the refreshed version in the app listing (still the original listing with reviews from years ago!). Apple’s Texas Hold’em is back! To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the App Store, we’ve brought back one of its first games, a popular classic. Originally created for iPod, then brought to iPhone, fans will love the polished redesign, featuring new characters, more challenging gameplay, and stunning graphics for the newest iPhone and iPod touch. Players will also love that it’s free to play—for the very first time. The Apple game first launched in 2006 for iPod before making its way to the App Store in 2008 (the 10-year anniversary was officially last year). For a fun look at the early versions, check out this post from MacStories. The modern 2.0 version of Texas Hold’em features 24 opponents to play against in addition to being able to challenge friends. Texas Hold’em features: Opponents bet, bluff, and have secret tells Winning advances you to the next location Includes 10 distinctive locations—including Las Vegas, Paris, and Macau Bring up in-game hints, tips, statistics, and player ratings Texas Hold’em is entirely free-to-play, works online or off Play against up to 8 friends with Wi-Fi multiplayer Rotate between immersive first-person and top-down gameplay Re-designed, re-rendered, and re-built to use high-resolution graphics that look stunning Designed for iOS 12 and later Notably, the new version is quite large at 1.5GB in size. Texas Hold’em remains a free download from the App Store and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Back in May Apple had some fun helping bring Warren Buffett’s game, Paper Wizard, to life. That was the first time since Texas Hold’em that the company had worked on a game. With Apple Arcade on the horizon, the company will be expanding its gaming focus for iOS. In the meantime, it’s cool to see Apple surprise and delight users with this Texas Hold’em update. Thanks, Nilesh! Source
  7. How to configure the DNS in iOS We taught you how to configure Safari in iOS to take control of how the browser works. Continuing with our internet tweaks, we are going to tell you how to configure the DNS in iOS. You should know that there is one huge drawback in iOS concerning DNS. You can only set a custom DNS if you are connected to a Wi-Fi connection. You cannot change the DNS on mobile networks, it’s just bizarre. One option around this would be to use a VPN instead that uses its own DNS service. When Android Pie was launched, many praised the addition of a native DNS option. Many iOS users aren’t aware that this option has been in their iPhone/iPad for a long time. The reason why they may not have known about it, is because it isn’t kind of visible in the settings. You’ll understand why we say this in a moment. How to configure the DNS in iOS 1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad 2. Navigate to the Wi-Fi options on the side-bar. 3. Now, on the right pane, you will see the name of the Wi-Fi network you are connected to. It will have a blue checkmark next to it, to indicate it is working fine. 4. Tap anywhere on the line with the Wi-Fi network’s name or the icons on the edge. This open’s the settings which are specific to the selected network. 5. Scroll down till you say the Configure DNS option. If it says “Automatic”, it means no custom DNS has been enabled, and the network is connecting to your ISP’s DNS servers. 6. Tap on Configure DNS, and then on the “Manual” option. Now you will see an Add server option. 7. Use this to set any DNS that you want to. Don’t forget to hit the save button on the top right corner, to finish adding the DNS server. Okay, you probably guessed this. Yeah, if you have more than one Wi-Fi networks, you’re going to need to setup a DNS for each of those. Here are a few popular public DNS services which are reliable: CloudFlare DNS: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 (Cloudflare has DNS apps for Android and iOS as well= AdGuard DNS: 176.103.130.130 and 176.103.130.131 OpenDNS: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 Quad9 DNS: 9.9.9.9 and 149.112.112.112 Google DNS: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 AdGuard DNS is very useful, because it acts as a system-wide ad blocker. You can check out our Adguard DNS review here. Closing Words Personally, I don’t like Apple’s Settings app and the way it presents the options for changing the DNS. In comparison, on Android Pie, the DNS option is straightforward. You go to Settings > Network & Internet > Advanced > Private DNS. Bam, there it is, it’s a one-time setting and it works across all networks (Wi-Fi and Mobile). Even if you don’t remember the option’s location, you can just open Settings on your Android device and type DNS and it will display the option for you. Do the same thing on iOS, and you get nothing, it’s not a searchable option. Source: How to configure the DNS in iOS (gHacks - Martin Brinkmann)
  8. How to configure Safari in iOS - A user-friendly and privacy focused guide Most iPhone and iPad users don't often pay attention to how their default browser works, unless they run into an issue. We have written a user-friendly and privacy focused guide, to teach you how to configure Safari in iOS. This is more like a cheat sheet, we didn't want to bore you with technical jargon. So, we kept it pretty simple and straightforward. How to configure Safari in iOS You can't manage Safari's settings from, well, Safari. iOS is a little bit weird when it comes to that; instead, you need to go to the Settings app to configure the browser. You can find Safari on the side-bar to your left. There are a slew of options that you can modify here. We will mention the most important ones which you may want to tweak. Siri and Search - Do you use Siri? If your answer is no, disable everything under this option. This is a personal choice. If you use Siri, you can choose whether it should display suggestions, learn from how you use Safari, and whether it should display information/suggestions in search results. Default search engine - No prizes for guessing what's default here, Google of course. You do however have 3 other options to choose from Yahoo, Bing and the privacy-centric DuckDuckGo. Search suggestions - You may know this as auto-complete from desktop browsers. It can help you save a few seconds, which would have otherwise been wasted typing the rest of the search phrase. This can get finicky though, as you may get suggestions which may not be entirely relevant to what you are looking for. Safari suggestions - This option is kind of similar to search suggestions, and pulls up information from sources like Wikipedia. The information is displayed inside the address bar, and maybe useful at times. It is powered by Siri, in case you were wondering. Quick Website Search - Want to see a Wikipedia page of a particular topic, but too lazy to type it? Try typing something like "Wiki iOS", and it should load the relevant page. Pre-load Top Hit - This is like a lottery, and depends on what you're searching for. It loads the most popular result for the term you searched for. I recommend disabling it, simply because it can be inaccurate and because it needs to connect to the site in question. AutoFill - You can use Safari to automatically fill in your name, credit card info, to quickly checkout on websites. Frequently visited sites - As the name so obviously suggests, this feature lists your most often accessed websites. It can be useful, if you like to visit the same sites everyday. For e.g. news, weather, sports, etc. You can manage your favorites (bookmarked websites) separately, and also the behaviour of tabs. These are pretty basic options that are self-explanatory. Important Safari Settings in iOS that we recommend, and why Apple Safari is quite good in iOS and has some very useful options to keep you safe on the internet. Block Pop-ups - Despite the fact that iOS is generally considered safe(er) from malware, you don't want websites popping-up windows to annoy you, or distract you. Leave this option on, and you won't notice a single pop-up, it's pretty good. Fraudulent Website Warning - This is a crucial feature and is one of the many pre-enabled options in Safari. It helps in preventing known scam/fraud sites from loading in the browser, and thus stops phishing attacks dead in their tracks. Prevent Cross-Site Tracking - This option will prevent websites, you know the pesky ones, from tracking your browsing history on other websites. This is perhaps the most important of all the features. Downloads - If you have a ton of space in your iCloud account, you can let your downloads be saved in the cloud drive, else you may want to save them locally on your iPhone or iPad's storage. Content Blockers - These are your ad blockers, and yes iOS does have a few. I personally use AdGuard, because I use YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, etc from the browser directly instead of their respective apps, and don't need to see or hear the ads/video ads. Camera, Microphone, Location - These are personal choices, and can be set to Deny or Allow for all websites, or set to ask you every time. Ask yourself, do I really want the website to use my camera, hear what I'm saying or know where I'm? If you want to be in control, select Ask Every time. Request Desktop Website (enable for iPads) - This isn't security related, but to enhance your user experience. On iOS 1,3 err, I mean iPadOS, this option is enabled for iPads, because the screen is large and scales down the desktop theme of almost every website to fit the display perfectly. On iPhones, it isn't recommended to enable the option, because the display isn't big enough. Finally, there is the Advanced section, where there are a few options, which we think may be of use to developers, especially the Experimental ones. The rest of the options here, aren't really meant to be fiddled with by normal users. Source: How to configure Safari in iOS - A user-friendly and privacy focused guide (gHacks - Martin Brinkmann)
  9. Microsoft’s iPhone Email Client Will Soon Get Shared Mailbox Support Microsoft Outlook improves at a really fast pace, and more recently, the software giant started testing a new feature that would really come in handy for large organizations. Shared Mailboxes, a feature that’s already available in the desktop version of Outlook, will land in the iOS version of Outlook, and Microsoft says this feature is now in TestFlight for those who want to give it a try. Android devices will get the same feature very soon, Microsoft says, albeit specifics aren’t yet available. As for what’s a shared mailbox, the feature allows groups to use the same email alias when sending emails. Microsoft provides a thorough description of shared mailbox: “A shared mailbox makes it easy for a group of people to monitor and send email from a public email alias like [email protected] When a person in the group replies to a message sent to the shared mailbox, the email appears to be from the shared address, not from the individual user. You can also use the shared mailbox as a shared team calendar. A shared mailbox is not designed for direct log on though. The user account for the shared mailbox itself should stay in disabled state.”More improvements on the wayFurthermore, Microsoft’s Head of the Outlook for iOS team, Michael Palermiti, says additional features are also coming, including delete support. Regarding multiple Intune-managed Outlook 365 accounts, Tali Roth, also part of the Outlook team at Microsoft, says this is something that’s not supported just yet. “I'm guessing the question is around multiple Intune-managed O365 accounts, which we don't support. We've heard the feedback from a number of users and would love to address this but it's fairly complex across Intune / AAD / Outlook. Please keep the pressure on though!” she posted. You can try out the new shared mailbox support on an iPhone by entering the TestFlight beta program on iOS. Source
  10. Changes across Apple's products mostly fall into two categories: TV, or bug fixes. Enlarge / Apple announced some of these features at its services-and-TV-focused event on March 25. Ron Amadeo Today, Apple began rolling out new versions of its iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS operating systems for iPhones and iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and Apple TVs, respectively. The updates are largely focused on the video services that Apple announced at its March 25 event—namely, a revamped Apple TV app, Apple TV Channels, and an expansion of AirPlay 2 to devices produced by Apple's partners. A handful of bug fixes, performance optimizations, and other small tweaks are also included in the updates. And no doubt deliberately timed with these updates, AirPlay 2 and Apple TV app support has finally rolled out to supporting Samsung TVs as planned. Apple says they'll roll out to supporting LG, VIZIO, and Sony smart TVs "later this year." There's still no sign of the Apple TV+ subscription service and its included original programming unveiled at the aforementioned event, but that wasn't expected just yet. Apple will likely launch that this fall. The new Apple TV app and Channels The centerpiece of two of these updates (iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3) is the revised Apple TV app. Now available in 100 countries, it has a revised interface, the new Channels feature, a kids' tab, and quite a bit more—all of which was previously described at Apple's March 25 event and detailed in a blog post published by the company earlier today. The headlining "Channels" feature is a new, easier way to subscribe to content from networks like HBO, Showtime, and Starz through the Apple TV app and Apple's own billing system. You could do this before in some cases, but Channels is an entirely new platform that's a bit different on the back end—the content actually plays in the TV app through Apple's own system, rather than requiring you to download and open a third-party application. This is a little more convenient, but it also allows Apple to enforce strict standards about tracking user viewing data—and it, of course, plays into Apple's push to further monetize and control services used on its devices. The other big change is access to the iTunes library directly from the TV app; previously, you'd have to actually buy your TV episodes and movies in the iTunes app but watch them in the TV app, which could be confusing. Now you can buy directly within the app. Users can share subscriptions with others in their households via Family Sharing (up to six people), and Apple also added new personalized recommendation features in the app. iOS 12.3 Now let's get into the updates themselves. iOS 12.3 is arguably the most extensive of the four. It adds the new TV app and Channels feature just described, plus AirPlay 2 support for targeting those Samsung smart TVs that now support it (and the TVs from other brands that will support it later). See the description above or the notes below for all the details on the TV features. In terms of smaller features, Apple's notes for this update say that you can now follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view, and Apple Music will offer more frequent personalized recommendations. Apple also talked up the editorial curation of the kids' section in the Apple TV app, so once again we're seeing evidence of Apple's big spree of hiring an army of editorial people to carefully monitor, filter, and select all the content that appears across News, TV, Books, Music, and the App Store. Enlarge / You can update to iOS 12.3 from the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Samuel Axon Apple is investing a lot more in that approach and placing a much greater emphasis on it than any of its competitors. As we've seen at recent events, Apple sees itself not just as a tech company, but as a guidepost for culture. Bug fixes include a fix for non-responsive Apple TV remotes, a solution for some Wi-Fi call drops, and a fix for an issue "where song information from a connected iPhone may not appear in a car's display." These are Apple's release notes: iOS 12.3 includes support for AirPlay 2-enabled TVs and features a redesigned Apple TV app. This update also includes bug fixes and improvements. AirPlay 2 AirPlay 2 now supports sharing videos, photos, music and more from your iPhone and iPad directly to your AirPlay 2-enabled smart TV One-tap playback automatically plays your chosen TV show or movie on the last screen you used based on time and location Intelligent suggestions are all done on-device so your personal information stays private Apple TV app The Apple TV app features an all-new design that highlights expertly curated collections and personalized recommendations Apple TV channels offer subscriptions to HBO, Showtime, Starz, and more, available to watch directly in the Apple TV app, online or off Subscriptions to Apple TV channels can be shared with up to six family members, with no new apps, accounts, or passwords needed New-release movies are available to buy or rent in the Apple TV app, including the full catalog of over 100,000 movies and the largest selection of 4K HDR titles A new dedicated kids section helps you discover editorially handpicked shows and movies safe for kids of all ages The Apple TV app can now intelligently suggest playing to the most likely Apple TVs or AirPlay 2-enabled TVs nearby The update also includes bug fixes and improvements. This update: Adds the ability to follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view Apple Music's For You tab now updates multiple times a day suggesting music based on themes like genres, artists, and moods you love Fixes an issue that could prevent Apple TV Remote from pausing video, controlling video, or changing volume on supported receivers Addresses an issue that could cause calls made using Wi-Fi calling to drop Fixes an issue where song information from a connected iPhone may not appear in a car's display tvOS 12.3 tvOS 123 also rolled out today, alongside an Apple TV Software update labeled 7.3 for older Apple TV units. The result is a new TV app experience for the third- and fourth-generation Apple TVs as well as the Apple TV 4K. And these are Apple's brief release notes on Apple TV Software Update 7.3: This update includes general performance and stability improvements and this feature: Apple TV app: Now available on Apple TV (3rd generation), the Apple TV app gives you one place to watch all of your favorite shows and movies across all of your devices. Subscribe to just the Apple TV channels you want. Browse thousands of titles from the iTunes Store that you can buy or rent. And get recommendations for shows and movies based on everything you watch. macOS 10.14.5 macOS Mojave 10.14.5 adds AirPlay 2 support and otherwise largely focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements. Apple says the update reduces audio latency on 2018 MacBook Pros and fixes an issue with OmniOutliner and OmniPlan. Point releases like this generally don't offer much in the way of new features. The notes from Apple for macOS 10.14.5 are as follows: Adds AirPlay 2 support for sharing videos, photos, music, and more from your Mac directly to your AirPlay 2-enabled smart TV. Adds the ability to follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view. Improves audio latency on MacBook Pro models introduced in 2018. Fixes an issue that prevented certain very large OmniOutliner and OmniPlan documents from rendering properly. Disables accessories with insecure Bluetooth connections. Enterprise content: Fixes an issue that prevented resetting the user account password from the login window after using a personal recovery key (PRK) to unlock the FileVault volume. Fixes an issue that prevented the InstalledApplicationList MDM command from recognizing that updates are available for apps installed via VPP. Hang tight if you're still waiting for some big feature, though; Apple will likely outline big new features for the next major macOS release at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in early June. Enlarge / Remember that macOS software updates are now in the System Preferences panel, not the App Store, in Mojave. Samuel Axon watchOS 5.2.1 watchOS 5.2.1 is the first update since the one that added support for Apple's second-generation AirPods. The headlining bug fix "fixes an issue where the numbers on the Explorer face would not appear for some users." Additionally, it brings the ECG app and irregular-heart-rhythm notifications to users in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Iceland, Poland, and Slovakia. It's not mentioned in the update notes, but the update also adds a new 2019 version of the LGBTQIA+ Pride watch face. Users can select either the 2018 or 2019 face, whichever they prefer.

  11. LastPass launched a new feature in the mobile versions of the password manager LastPass today that allows customers to recover their account under certain circumstances. Password managers help users when it comes to password use on the Internet. They provide users with tools to create and use unique passwords everywhere. The database is usually protected by a master password that the user needs to enter to decrypt the password database and access stored passwords and other information. Password managers may support other authentication options. KeePass, a popular free password manager supports key files or Windows user accounts. Users who forget the master password are in a precarious situation as it is the only option to unlock the database unless recovery options are available. LastPass Mobile Account Recovery LastPass launched a new feature called LastPass Mobile Account Recovery today that introduces an option to recovery a LastPass account in case the master password is not accepted anymore by the service. The feature is only available in the mobile LastPass applications for Android and iOS. Mobile account recovery requires a mobile device with fingerprint or Face ID authentication support. Basically, what it does is unlock an option to recover a LastPass account using the authentication method. While LastPass makes no mention how the feature works, it appears that it links biometric authentication to the LastPass account so that users of the service may reset the master password using it. It should be clear that LastPass users need to configure the feature before it becomes available. The company notes that the account recovery feature is device-specific. If you want it to be available on all devices, you need to enable it on all of them. If you are using LastPass on an Android device, you need to configure fingerprint authentication first; if you use it on an iOS device, you need to set up Face ID instead. Setup is identical afterwards: sign in to the LastPass application on the mobile device. LastPass should display a notification about the new account recovery option; if it does not, go to Menu > Settings > Security and enable the unlock feature (called Use Fingerprint to Unlock on Android, and Use Face ID on iOS), and toggle the account recovery feature afterward. Here is a video by LastPass that demonstrates the feature. If you need to reset your LastPass master password, select "forgot password" when you get to the login screen. From there, select "Recovery with Fingerprint" or "Recovery with Face ID" and authenticate using the biometric authentication option. LastPass will prompt you for a new master password that you may enter directly. You may also add a password hint. The selection of "set master password" completes the process. Closing Words LastPass recommends that customers enable the new account recovery option on their mobile devices even if they only use the desktop version of the password manager. The new option is certainly helpful in restoring an account if the master password cannot be remembered; users should take note, however, that it could also open up a new option for third-parties to gain unauthorized access to the account through coercion. Cautious users might want to stick to using the password hint option as the only resort when it comes to account recovery.

  12. Microsoft Fully Embraces Siri Shortcuts on iOS with OneDrive Update Microsoft has released a new update for the iOS version of its OneDrive client, and this time the changelog includes several welcome improvements. First and foremost, it’s worth knowing that this update brings OneDrive to version 10.60 on both iPhone and iPad, and it includes support for Siri Shortcuts. In other words, you can now ask Siri to perform a series of tasks in OneDrive, which obviously comes in handy when you want to access the app without even touching the iPhone. For example, the digital assistant can scan a whiteboard, a business card, or a document, and everything takes place instantly. All you have to do is enable OneDrive shortcuts by heading over to Settings > Siri & Search on your iPhone.iMessage fixes also includedAdditionally, Microsoft is also implementing a change for business users, as it’s renaming the Sites view to Libraries. All features are there, so the only thing that’s changing is the name. For iMessage users, there are new fixes for icons, which Microsoft says looked awkward within the app. “We’ve fixed an issue in the iMessage app where our icons were showing up pixelated. Thanks to the keen eye of our TestFlight user Nikolaj, we’ve fixed this issue and our iMessage icons are now clear as day. A non-Seattle day, that is,” the company explains. And last but not least, the OneDrive update also includes refinements for the VoiceOver experience in the Shared page, “and it will now behave a little more human, and a little more accessibly.” Other changes might also be included under the hood, so the app overall should also run smoother. You can download the new OneDrive version from the App Storehere. It requires at least iOS 11.3, and it is compatible with iPhone, Pad, and iPod touch. Source
  13. Apple also updated macOS today to support its news and magazine service. Enlarge / Apple CEO Tim Cook announcing Apple News+. Apple quietly pushed out a lengthy iOS software update today. While the day was largely dominated by Apple's "It's Show Time" event in which the iPhone maker announced news, gaming, and TV subscription services, it just released updates that will help users get settled with some of the new announcements. Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ won't be available until the fall, so iOS 12.2's biggest updates revolve around Apple News+. The company's new, $10-per-month news and magazine subscription service requires an update to the existing News app, which brings the UI for top articles and magazine issues chosen by Apple editors. The updated News app will also allow subscribers to read content offline and receive personalized recommendations based on topics that are most interesting to them. iOS 12.2 also adds support for Apple's newest AirPods, which carry the new H1 chip that lets wearers call upon Siri without touching the AirPods first. The update also lets users summon Siri from iPhones or iPads to play any video, show, movie, sports game, or channel on their Apple TVs, essentially extending Siri's role on mobile devices as a virtual remote for the Apple TV. While iOS 12.2 is full of small improvements, it likely won't make your iPhone or iPad look completely different. Today, we're also expecting updates to macOS with the release of macOS 10.14.4, but at the time of publishing this article, 10.14.4 is not available yet. We believe that update will bring Safari Autofilling using TouchID as well as dark-mode activation in Safari for sites that support a dark-mode setting. Apple's full release notes for iOS 12.2 are as follows: iOS 12.2 provides support for Apple News+, adds the ability for Siri to play videos from your iOS device to Apple TV, and includes four new Animoji. This update also includes bug fixes and improvements.

  16. Google is pushing a big redesign to the mobile Gmail app on Android and iOS. The update was announced yesterday, and after spending some time with the new app, we're going to comb through the finer details and see what has changed between New Gmail and Old Gmail. For now the release is only out on Android, but like the old Gmail design, it should look identical on iOS. If you're on Android, you want Gmail version 9.x (the old design is Gmail 8). If the Play Store isn't serving you the update and you're into sideloading, APKMirror has a safe download. The iOS version is still wending its way through the App Store approval process and should be out sometime this week. The new design is a good match for the new desktop Gmail design that came out in April, along with all the other apps using the "Google Material Theme" design language. Everything is really white—an homage to the Google homepage—and everything uses rounded corners. The horizontal line dividers are gone, leaving nothing but white space to separate your messages. Control iconography is changed to Google's new outline style, and while message text remains in the Roboto font, everything else now uses Product Sans (the same typeface as the Google logo). When you first enter the inbox, it's hard to miss the death of the big red header at the top. Instead of a red action bar, the new Gmail design uses a white search bar across the top of the app. Search is certainly promoted more with this new design, but getting to it isn't any faster. When it was a magnifying glass icon on the old Gmail design, it was a tap away; with the huge search bar, it's still a tap away. The search bar does look better than the mostly blank action bar that was used before. The side navigation panel is still a tap away via the left "hamburger" button inside the search bar, or you can still swipe in from the side to open it. The one new feature in the header, then, is the new account switcher, which exists on the right side of the search bar as your profile picture. Tapping on it pops up a window with all of your other accounts. Assuming you have unique profile pictures across your accounts, the profile picture display makes it easy to tell which account you're using from the Inbox view—something that wasn't possible on the old version of Gmail. Like most other Google apps, there's no permanent "Gmail" logo on the main screen anywhere. Sometimes, though, the search bar help text will go away and a fun "Gmail" logo animation will play inside the search bar. This seems to only happen when you open the inbox, and even then it only happens once every few minutes. It's a fun little touch when you catch it happening. The floating round compose button returns to the bottom-right corner of the screen, but instead of a pen icon on a red background, it's now a multi-coloured plus icon on a white background. The pen screamed "Compose a new email," but the new plus icon seems like a less-obvious indicator. Desktop Gmail sticks a loud, obvious "Compose" text label next to the plus icon by default, which helps a lot. Like the new desktop Gmail, by default the new mobile Gmail is very upfront about attachments to your messages. Instead of the usual paper clip icon, direct links to the first few attachments will appear in the inbox, right under the message preview text. Inbox densities: Gmail's one new feature Google has a few introductory pop-ups for users opening the new Gmail for the first time. After the welcome message, you'll be presented with a setting for Gmail's single new feature: Inbox densities. Just like on the desktop version of Gmail, you can now switch between "Default," "Comfortable," and "Compact" display modes for your inbox messages. The "Default" view is the biggest and shows contact icons, a line of preview text, and a row for the new attachment buttons. "Comfortable" kills the attachment row, and "Compact" additionally removes the preview text line and contact pictures. This can make a big difference in terms of number of messages on-screen. On a OnePlus 6, you'll get about 13 messages on-screen in "Compact" mode, while "Default" mode will show six complete messages per screen if every message has attachments. The rest of the UI is pretty much what you would expect. Gmail is getting a new coat of white paint, but mostly everything is where you would expect it to be. It's kind of disappointing to still see all the controls in the same spots. Along with this new Material Design rollout, Google has experimented with templates that put all the controls at the bottom of the phone. As devices continually get bigger and taller, bottom controls seem like a really good idea. For now it's the same old Gmail, just white. And speaking of the proliferation of lightness, this new Gmail doesn't have a dark mode. Lots of other Google apps are getting a dark mode, and it's expected to be a focus of Android Q. Hopefully Gmail gets a dark mode soon. Posters note: The above images are the first in slideshows. Please visit the link below to see the other slideshow images.

  18. Hope that free lunch was delicious WHEN JANET JACKSON and Luther Vandross sang that "the best things in life are free", they probably didn't have VPN apps in mind, given the year was 1992 and the song was recorded for a 5.5-rated crime comedy caper. Just as well, because if you currently do get your VPN fix free of charge, it's worth considering what the payoff might involve. As the old adage says: if you're not paying for the product, you are the product. According to a new investigation from Metric Labs - the company behind Top10VPN - the majority of the top-ranking free VPN apps on Google Play and the Apple App Store are either based in China, or have some kind of Chinese ownership. If that doesn't immediately raise a flag as red as China's, this is why it should: the Chinese government has been clamping down on VPN software in recent years, and any private data funnelled through them may well not remain private for long. In all, 17 out of the 30 apps analysed had links to China, and 86 per cent had huge privacy issues to boot. Some simply provided no information about whether data was logged or shared with third parties, while others used generic privacy policies with no relevance to VPNs. Others had no policy at all, but several explicitly revealed sharing information with China. If these weren't alarming enough, the professionalism of the outfits should also be called into question. 64 per cent didn't have a dedicated website, with several having no online presence at all. 55 cent of those that bothered with a privacy policy stuck them on a WordPress site with ads, or whacked them straight into a file on PasteBin. And 52 per cent of support email addresses used free, personal domains like Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail. Oh, and 83 per cent ignored emails sent to them. While none of these things are proof of dubious practices, it should at least give you pause for thought. If you care enough about privacy to download a VPN, maybe pay the people you're relying on protecting it in future? Source
  19. Today’s Telegram update brings you an easy way to save conversations on your disk. In just a few taps, you can export some (or all) of your chats, including photos and other media they contain. As a result you’ll get all your data accessible offline in JSON-format or in beautifully formatted HTML. Data Export Results To use this feature, make sure you have the latest version of Telegram Desktop installed on your computer, then click Settings > Export Telegram data. This tool will be particularly useful for users who have millions of messages and can’t easily access the oldest parts of their messaging history. You can export individual chats by opening the … menu in any chat and choosing Export chat history. Exceptions in Notifications Telegram was the first app to give its users notorious flexibility in fine-tuning how their message notifications work. Today we are taking this further by adding Exceptions to the notifications settings, where you can see which chats are excluded from the global settings you defined in Settings > Notifications. Notifications Exceptions Muting all chats but a few (or vice versa) has never been easier. Improved Telegram Passport We’ve been overwhelmed by the reception of Telegram Passport – the tool to log into third-party apps that require real-life identity. Just two weeks after its launch, Passport can be used to sign up for many services, from established sharing economy services to blockchain startups. To name just a few projects that integrated Telegram Passport: Sum & Substance (KYC & user verification), CEX.IO and Xena (cryptocurrency exchanges), CryptoPay (wallet), YouDrive (carsharing), Profi and Worki (job marketplaces), Minter Network and Minexcoin (blockchain startups), KICKICO, Cryptonomos and ICOadmin (ICO platforms). Building on this success, today we’re upgrading Passport to support names in original languages and additional types of documents. We’ve also strengthened the algorithms that encrypt Passport data to better protect your data against hacking attacks coming from Telegram (however unlikely those may seem). This way we further ensure that only you have access to your private data. Source Code and APIs As always, you do not have to take our word on how our encryption works. The updated source code of Telegram apps reflecting all of today’s changes is available on GitHub and open for everybody to review. If you are a developer of a service that requires identity verification, make sure you check out these docs explaining how Telegram Passport can be integrated into your app. Source

  23. Opera has released a new web browser for Android, the Opera Touch. The browser is designed around one-handed use and also improving the sharing of content between mobile and desktop browser. The new mobile browser launches directly with the search field activated and the keyboard open every time, so you can start typing immediately. A Fast Action Button or FAB is placed near the bottom of the screen. This button opens a carousel of options when you press and hold it, and commonly done tasks such as switching tabs, reloading the page or going back can all be done from here without having to reach for the top of the phone's screen. Opera Touch also includes other features, such as ad-blocker, cryptojacking protection, QR and barcode scanner and a dynamic speed dial feature that changes with your browsing patterns. Another feature is Flow. With this, users can send links from Opera Touch on their mobile and the desktop Opera browser. The connection is established between the two browsers by scanning a QR code and there is no need to setup any account for sync. After that, by accessing a button in the FAB menu, users can send links to the desktop browser and vice versa instantly. The connection between the two end-to-end encrypted. To work with Opera Touch, Opera has also released an updated version of its desktop browser for Windows, Mac and Linux. Gsmarena.com
  24. 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.
