2058

In what qualifies as a technological embarrassment to Apple Inc, hackers seem to have reportedly got a hands-on on the next version of Apple’s operating system i.e iOS 14. News is out that the gray market in China is selling iPhone 11 devices loaded with the latest iOS 14 operating systems which were scheduled to release as a beta version in June 2020 and as the commercial version from mid-September 2020.

 

What is amazing in this OS leak is that some iPads and iPhones sold in China are also seen loaded with the latest version of iOS giving a glimpse of new features that ought to be released in the spring.

 

However, a highly placed source from Apple Inc says that the loaded OS versions might be those meant for developers who were working on the development of iPhone and iPad software.

 

“The pre-release could prove as a trove for a lot of information” says Ryan Duff, the security researcher working for Cybersecurity firm SIXGEN which was the first to discover the latest OS version. Duff highlighted the fact that the technology giant has miserably failed in defending its upcoming releases from Chinese spying eyes.

 

As of now, details are in that Apple is planning to show a glimpse of its upcoming iOS 14 at the Worldwide Developers Conference which is scheduled to be held on a virtual note on June 22nd, 2020.

 

Note- Apple iOS 14 is said to offer a mouse cursor support along with a trackpad enabled iPad Keyboards.
