Found a hole in Bluetooth, which allows you to hack the device with the operating system Apple and Microsoft

Researchers at Boston University have discovered a serious vulnerability in the Bluetooth communication protocol in Apple and Microsoft gadgets that allows attackers to track and identify devices. Vulnerabilities are subject to Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, as well as Microsoft tablets and laptops. Devices running Android are not affected.

Gadgets use public Bluetooth advertising channels to announce their presence to other devices. For security, most of them broadcast a random address that changes periodically. The researchers found that this information is enough to extract identifying tokens that allow you to track the device even after changing a random address.

The algorithm does not require decrypting messages or violating the security of the Bluetooth protocol, since it is completely based on public unencrypted advertising traffic.

Devices running iOS or macOS have two identifying tokens that change at different intervals. On …


Apple is working on 3D cameras for the iPhone 2020

Apple is in talks with partners about the supply of three-dimensional Time-of-Flight sensors for iPhone 2020 cameras. Reports the edition about it DigiTimes.

Vertical resonator surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) Time-of-Flight (ToF) is similar to TrueDepth's infrared camera system, which is used to unlock the Face ID in actual flagship iPhone and iPad Pro models.

But the 3D VCSEL ToF sensor will allow you to create a more accurate three-dimensional map of space – compared to conventional cameras that create volumetric images based on parallax. This will open up new opportunities for application developers with augmented reality.

The main difference between ToF and TrueDepth is work over long distances. The face recognition sensor works in the range of several inches, and the ToF 3D camera can scan the space at a distance of several meters.

Back in November last year, TFI analyst …


Apple is preparing a folding iPad with support for 5G networks – IHS

Apple is working on a collapsible iPad with a 5G modem, according to analytical company IHS Markit. According to her, in the open state, the tablet will be the size of a MacBook.

There is no other information about the new IHS Markit device.

It is unlikely that Apple will release a folding device with support for 5G networks in the foreseeable future, since even the first iPhone with 5G modems will be released no earlier than 2020.

According to another IHS Markit prediction, in the fall of 2019, Apple will release a 16-inch MacBook Pro.

What you need to know about macOS Catalina. First, we do not recommend downloading it yet.

June 3 Apple introduced
the next version of macOS is called Catalina (in honor of the resort island of Santa Catalina in California). Beta version for developers is already available. The final release will take place in the fall.

One of the key innovations of macOS Catalina is the Sidecar feature. It turns the iPad into an extra display. Previously, this had to use third-party solutions – for example, Duet Display worth 1,150 rubles. Now it is enough to have a tablet with iPadOS (another new WWDC) and a computer with macOS Catalina. Use case: edit images using the Apple Pencil on iPad, and all changes occur on the Mac screen.

Twitter ported iOS app on Mac

At the conference for developers WWDC 2019, Apple introduced Project Catalyst – a tool for porting applications from iPad to Mac. Twitter was one of the first to use this tool.

Recall that in February 2018, Twitter stopped supporting the official Mac client due to bugs in the application. Now he is back. The developers have added some new features specifically for the desktop OS.

Project Catalyst is a promising innovation: to port an iOS application to a Mac, just tick the appropriate box when compiling into Xcode. This means that in the near future in the Mac App Store will be a lot of applications and games, previously available only for the mobile platform.
