According to the latest report from security researchers, Apple’s OS X and iOS have a vulnerability that allows hackers to steal passwords from all the applications installed on a device. The report comes from a reliable source, The Register, that is why I think we can believe it. This software bug affects not only those apps that are installed from the App Store or other sources, but even the native apps like Mail. What is interesting is that the vulnerability was first found in October 2014. This means that the guys from Cupertino either ignore or have difficulties in fixing the problem.
About a month ago, a rumor appeared on the Internet, which suggested that Samsung will become Apple's primary A9 chip supplier. Although this rumor contradicted with previous reports from reliable insiders, who believed both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) would supply the company from Cupertino with chips for next-generation iPhones and iPads, it looked quite plausible.
Yesterday, a new report from a South Korean newspaper called Maeil Business was spotted on the Net. According to this report, Samsung will get 75% of orders for the production of the A9 chip. The same report also notes that the processor for the new iPhone and probably iPad Air and iPad mini may be manufactured at the factory in Austin, Texas.
Bank of America has recently released a new ad highlighting the iPhone 6 and Apple Pay. In such a way one of the largest banks in the USA has joined the army of banks and retailers that promote the NFC-based payments service created by the guys from Cupertino and launched in the United States of America back in October.
In the short clip, which is available below, Apple Pay is called "the new, easy, secure, smart way to pay with a simple touch." Well, after watching the ad it is very difficult not to agree with this statement, don’t you think so?

According to the latest report from a security researcher Axelle Apvrille, a new piece of malware has been recently discovered that is developed to hijack the ad revenue. It is called AdThief. Malicious software infects jailbroken devices, so if you have one, be careful while using Cydia. You see, the malware comes in the form of Cydia Substrate extension and it is nearly impossible for an average user to identify and get rid of it.
The guys from Cupertino on Monday released the next iOS 8 beta to developers for testing. The release of the fifth beta-version comes two weeks after the release of the fourth beta, so we may assume that the work on the next-gen mobile operating system continues at a normal pace.
According to the latest reports from Asian sources, Apple’s next-generation iPad mini Air will be 30% thinner than the current model.

According to Taiwan's Business Weekly, Apple has placed a huge amount of orders for the iPhone 6. In fact, the number of handsets the guys from Cupertino are planning to sell in the first weeks after the release is nearly 68 million.
Apart from the new version of OS X Yosemite, Apple has recently released a new iOS 8 beta to developers. Just like the previous beta, this one contains a bunch of noticeable improvements and tweaks that allowed to make Apple’s mobile operating system more stable and efficient.
