Apple confirms iPhone security fix update for September
Apple has confirmed the security flaw concerning the Apple iPhone passcode locking system which I posted on yesterday, according to Macworld.
Apparently an email sent to Macworld by Apple representative Jennifer Bowcock stated: “The minor iPhone security issue which surfaced this week is fixed in a software update which will be released in September.”
Well at least Apple for once has responded and the promise of a September fix for the security issue is all good. Until then, users are advised to set their double tap preferences to send to home rather that their favourites as this should prevent this particular security flaw from being used.
With this new security flaw fix being added to the September update the list of fixes is growing, a list that now includes this particular security fix, a supposed fix for iPhone applications crashing, “push” background services for apps, and supposed 3G connectivity improvements.
Guess we’ll just have to wait until the September update to see what really happens.
