New rumors show Apple is (or at least, was) considering iMessage for Android

iMessage on Android
For as long as iMessage has existed, smartphone owners have speculated about the possibility of Apple bringing its messaging service to Android. Although there have been hints and rumors in the past, the release of Apple Music on Android late last year reignited conversations about iMessage being ported over as well. Nearly a year later, the blogosphere has been relatively quiet, but a new report from John Gruber of Daring Fireball claims that Apple has indeed been considering expanding the reach of iMessage beyond the iOS platform.

So long, Phoneys! Apple is about to ban everyone’s favorite iOS 10 stickers app

iOS 10 Stickers

Apple, as opposed to Google, just doesn’t know how to kick back and relax sometimes. After a prank app called Phoneys skyrocketed to the top of the iMessage App Store charts, Apple informed the developer of the app, Adam Howell, that the app will be removed  in a week if he doesn’t implement some design tweaks that would fundamentally alter the appeal and overall utility of the app.

For those unfamiliar, Phoneys is a fun iMessage app that let users send stickers designed to look exactly like the blue iMessage bubbles iOS users are accustomed to. The end result is that users can send their friends messages and make it seem as if they were the ones who sent it.

Researchers can hack Apple’s iMessages, but you’re already safe

Apple iMessage Encryption Issues
In mid-March, during the FBI vs. Apple scandal surrounding the encrypted San Bernardino iPhone, a report revealed that security researchers from Johns Hopkins University were able to access photos and videos in iMessage conversations, even though they were encrypted. The same university came up with a different attack against the same iMessage, one that allowed them to access content that should be protected by the strong encryption Apple advocates. The good news is the security holes have been patched already. You just have to run the latest versions of iOS and OS X. However, the researchers recommend that Apple should replace its iMessage encryption with one that eliminates potential weaknesses.
