Hackers still threaten a remote wipe of iPhones, despite Apple’s statement

Apple iPhone Accounts Ransom Hackers

After news had emerged earlier this week that a hacker group called Turkish Crime Family (TCF) is holding millions of Apple ID accounts for ransom, Apple said that its servers and databases were not hacked.

Apple apologizes for ruining iCloud calendar

iPhone iCloud Calendar Spam

Some iPhone and Mac users have been experiencing a new annoying issue recently: iCloud calendar spam. What happens is that event invitations start appearing in the Calendar app on iOS and macOS, containing links to fake websites. There are ways to fix the problem, although none of them come officially from Apple, and not all will completely deal with the matter.

Apple’s iPhone call logging is a feature, not a security scare

iPhone Call Data iCloud

That said, Apple could certainly have done a better job informing the user what happens with call data.
