iPhone 5c sales are reaching those of iPhone 5s



Localytics has published a new report that claims San Francisco to be the best selling location for the iPhone 5s while in general the gap between iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c sales is dwindling.

After close to one week of sales, we found that, overall, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco held the largest market share in the U.S. for iPhone 5s and 5c activations. This is to be expected given the size of their populations. However the real surprise was that San Francisco came in third. Considering San Francisco is actually the 11th largest market in the U.S., its status as a technology haven also, clearly, translates to a culture of early adoption.

We then looked at the distribution of the iPhone 5s and 5c for each of the cities. Again, San Francisco stood out, showing the strongest preference for the 5s over the 5c (85% vs. 15%) among the top 12 major U.S. cities. Philadelphia showed the lowest preference with 72%.

Mailbox App Allows HTML Emails to Execute Malicious Javascript Code



Michele Spagnuolo, a well-known security expert and blogger, has recently reported about a Mailbox vulnerability that allows any Javascript contained in the body of the email to be executed in the app.

Here’s what he writes (via iClarified):

This is bad for security and privacy, because it allows advanced spam techniques, tracking of user actions, hijacking the user by just opening an email, and, using an exploitation framework, potentially much worse things. The app also loads external images without offering an option to disable this behavior.

Mailbox developers have reacted very fast - they promise this security breach will be patched within few hours.

And here’s what you can actually do using the malicious Javascript code:

Apple Raises Prices for Mac mini in Several Countries



As it has been spotted earlier this day, the prices for the Mac mini both is Australia and Brazil have been increased due to some unexplained reason. This is what Mark Gurman of 9To5Mac reports.

In Australia, the prices were formerly A$699 and A$899 for the standard configurations, and the Mac mini Server model was priced at A$ 1,099.00. Now, the machines are priced at A$749, A$999, and A$1249, respectively.

The prices for the Mac mini have also been raised in Portugal and Malaysia, multiple tipsters have noticed.

Is it still unclear why Apple has changed the pricing for the Mac mini. Hope the company representatives will explain such a step as soon as possible.
