Leaked Apple’s operating system iOS 14 early version is doing rounds all over the Internet. News is rife that someone has likely gained access to an iPhone running the new iOS 14 which ultimately resulted in tipping of the features related to this operating system even before it has been officially unveiled.
As per Vice’s Motherboard, “Security researchers and hackers have had access to a leaked early version of iOS 14, the iPhone’s next operating system, since at least February.”
Usually, such leaks related to specification of any iOS hit the Internet only before the launch time starts inching closer. However, it is altogether a different story this time. According to Motherboard by Vice, “Five sources in the jailbreaking community familiar with the leak told us they think that someone obtained a development iPhone 11 running a version of iOS 14 dated December 2019, which was made to be used only by Apple developers.”
The report further quoted the sources revealing that someone bought the device from China’s smartphone market at a heavy cost. The person then reportedly extracted the iOS 14 internal build and leaked the same across the iPhone jailbreaking and hacking community.
In another report by Forbes, it was reported that Apple is strengthening its password manager and will eventually rollout a new updated Home screen list view option that will enable you to use iOS apps without downloading them completely.
With the early iOS 14 leak, news is rife that criminal hackers are likely to use the scenario to threaten both Apple as well as iOS users as they will be ready with the jailbreak version of the operating system even before it is launched.
Earlier, Apple announced it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference virtually, beginning June 22, in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website for free for all developers. The company also announced the Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for student developers to showcase their love of coding by creating their own Swift playground. Now in its 31st year, WWDC20 will be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers around the world to get early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS, and to learn from Apple engineers as they work to build app experiences that enrich the lives of Apple customers around the globe.
Asserting that WWDC20 will be Apple’s biggest yet, bringing together our global developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented way for a week in June to learn about the future of Apple platforms, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said, “We can’t wait to meet online in June with the global developer community and share with them all of the new tools we’ve been working on to help them create even more incredible apps and services. We look forward to sharing more details about WWDC20 with everyone as we get closer to this exciting event.”
