Apple Will Now Send Notification Email when iCloud Account is Accessed Via the Web

 iCloud 1

Apple has recently come under fire thanks to some criminal hackers who have exposed celebrity nude photos stolen from user’s iCloud storage. While the iPad maker maintains that the photos were stolen using a brute force attack and not by hacking into servers, it has done little to quell fears from users that online storage is safe.

This comes just ahead of Apple’s launch of the new iPhone, iOS 8, and iWatch. Much of Apple’s iCloud connectedness is what makes owning multiple devices so convenient. All of your data is stored in the cloud so you can pull it down from any device at any time.

iCloud Drive 1

The unfortunate celebrity nude photo hacking and subsequent online leak of said photos over the weekend has spurred outrage from iCloud users and messages of reassurance from Apple. No matter how many times the iPad maker states and restates that the invasion was not due to a security breach in the company’s servers, but a brute force attack on specific accounts, it does nothing to quell the fire that has erupted in its wake.

iOS users just don’t feel safe using iCloud anymore.

Alone in the Dark is a horror video game that first launched on DOS and quickly became a popular title for being the first survival horror game in 3-D. Players find themselves trapped in a haunted mansion, trying to find a way out.

Touch ID 1

It was two years ago that we first heard about the possibility of Apple going into the mobile payment industry. The company had submitted a patent application for a payment service that would allow users to make purchases without needing to swipe a card, or even be close to a cash register. Thanks to Bluetooth technology, consumers could simply make a purchase in a retail store right from where they are standing.

In January, Apple hinted at its interest in mobile payments during its quarterly earnings call. CEO Tim Cook was quoted as saying ““The mobile payments area in general is one we’ve been intrigued with, it was one of the thoughts behind Touch ID.”
