On September 17th the much awaited new iteration of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 8, was released for all supported iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. Even though the download size came in at 1.1GB over 5GB of free space was required on the device just for iOS 8 to be installed. This forced many users to delete countless apps and transfer content just so they could have ample space on the device. Microsoft saw this as an opportunity and pounced on it, promising 30GB of free OneDrive storage.
A few weeks back a major cache of celebrity nude pictures was leaked online. It was believed initially that iCloud was to be blamed. Apple conducted an investigation and found no direct breach of iCloud system. Instead it concluded that celebrities’ accounts were deliberately targeted by hackers. At the time iCloud did not have two-step authentication. Yesterday a fresh cache of pictures were leaked online and once again the widespread assumption is that this is the result of an iCloud breach.
