New iOS vulnerability enables brute-force passcode attacks on iPhone 7

We’ve seen devices for brute-forcing phone passcodes before. This $500 box, demonstrated on video by YouTuber “EverythingApplePro”, uses an exploit in iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11 beta to brute-force hack and bypass the Lock screen passcode of up to three iPhone 7/Plus handsets at a time—but it could take days to work, depending on the complexity of the passcode....

iPhone 7 Remained World’s Most Popular Smartphone Model in June Quarter

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus remained the world's most popular smartphones in the second quarter, ahead of Samsung's newer Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, according to market research firm Strategy Analytics.

Apple shipped an estimated 16.9 million iPhone 7 units and 15.1 million iPhone 7 Plus units worldwide in the quarter, which corresponds with April through June, according to the firm's latest Smartphone Model Tracker report.

"iPhone 7 remains the world's most popular smartphone model overall, due to a compelling blend of user-friendly design, extensive supporting apps, and widespread retail presence for the device," said Juha Winter, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics.

Strategy Analytics estimates Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ shipments totaled 10.2 million and 9 million respectively in the quarter. The smartphones, released in April, were the world's third and fourth most popular during the period.

"Samsung's Galaxy S8 has instantly become the world's most popular Android smartphone model, due to its attractive curved-screen design, a rich portfolio of software apps, and best-in-class retail distribution across dozens of countries," said Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics.

Rounding off the top five was Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi's budget Redmi 4A handset with an estimated 5.5 million quarterly shipments.

Apple reported it sold 41 million iPhones last quarter, but it doesn't break down the number on a model-by-model basis. Apple CEO Tim Cook did note the iPhone 7 remained its most popular iPhone.
iPhone results were impressive, with especially strong demand at the high end of our lineup. iPhone 7 was our most popular iPhone, and sales of iPhone 7 Plus were up dramatically compared to 6s Plus in the June quarter of last year. The combined iPhone 7 and 7 Plus family was up strong double digits year over year. One decade after the initial iPhone launch, we have now passed 1.2 billion cumulative iPhones sold.
Android still remains the world's most widely adopted mobile operating system by a significant margin given the hundreds of smartphones running that software platform. Android accounted for 67 percent of U.S. smartphone activations in the second quarter, according to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners.

iPhone 6s was similarly the world's most popular smartphone model last year, according to market research firm IHS Markit.

Check Out ElevationLab’s New Battery For The iPhone 7 & Apple Watch

Not too long ago ElevationLab introduced a new battery called the BatteryPro charger, that was designed to be an on-the-go charger for both your iPhone and Apple Watch, for whenever you need to call or use one of your device’s.

The BatteryPro features an 8,000 mAh battery that’s able to provide more than two weeks worth of charges for the Apple Watch, and more than three days worth of charges for the iPhone 7, since it comes with full-speed charging capabilities that help maximize your device’s battery.

It also comes with small LED lights and an included Micro-USB cord that you can charge the BatteryPro with, so it can always be ready to charge your Apple Watch or iPhone for when their batteries are low. Another worthy thing to mention about the charger, is that it’s also pretty small and portable; meaning it can easily travel with you in your back pocket or some type of bag like a backpack or a purse, since it’s around the same size of the iPhone 7 just a little thicker.

ElevationLab is currently selling the BatteryPro at their official website, where you can purchase it for $99.00 with free shipping and handling for the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch. For more information about this particular battery, you can simply click on the link for more details.
