Such an announcement, which MacDailyNews claims to have obtained from “a source familiar with the company’s thinking,” would go a long way towards making it easier for users to shift between the two competing platforms. But what would be Apple’s motivation for doing this?

How to backup and restore SMS and iMessages on a clean iOS install

Have you noticed that virtually every aspect of the personal information on our iPhones can be restored individually via iCloud? Things like photos, mail, contacts, calendars, Safari bookmarks, and notes can all be individually recovered on a fresh install of iOS.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is text messages and iMessages. Sure, it’s possible to restore text messages if you’re willing to backup and restore the entire contents of your iPhone, but what if you wish to perform a fresh install of iOS and then restore messages?

More evidence the FBI doesn’t need Apple’s help cracking the San Bernardino iPhone

iPhone iMessage Encryption Hackers
The high-profile FBI vs. Apple case is nearing its court date, but if you’ve followed the story closely you probably know everything there is to know about it. In short, the FBI wants Apple to create an iOS backdoor that will let it access data on a locked iPhone 5c that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters. Apple, meanwhile, says that taking such a course is very dangerous for the safety of iPhone users and would set a dangerous precedent by opening a door to hackers. While each side has argued its case in the media over the last few weeks, some intrepid researchers from John Hopkins have found a hole in Apple’s iPhone
