Apple explains security concepts

Posted on Mar 1, 2014 in iOS, Security

Apple explains his security concepts behind iOS in a 33 page long white paper.

• System security: The integrated and secure software and hardware that are the platform for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

• Encryption and data protection: The architecture and design that protect user data if the device is lost or stolen, or if an unauthorized person attempts to use or modify it.

• App security: The systems that enable apps to run securely and without compromis- ing platform integrity.

• Network security: Industry-standard networking protocols that provide secure authentication and encryption of data in transmission.

• Internet services: Apple’s network-based infrastructure for messaging, syncing, and backup.

• Device controls: Methods that prevent unauthorized use of the device and enable it to be remotely wiped if lost or stolen.

Why are Android users less engaged than iOS users?

Posted on Nov 27, 2012 in Links, Mobile

Giga.com Mobile has published a interesting analysis of IBM data from the latest Black Friday shopping traffic and tries to find some answers of the question: “Why is iOS still so dominant?”

IBM said that 77 percent of mobile traffic on Black Friday came from iOS devices. This despite the fact that Comscore said that Android has 52.5 percent of smartphone subscribers while iOS has 34.3 percent. Some of it comes down to the iPad, which is still the dominant tablet and produces the most traffic compared to iPhones and Android phones. But like the iPhone, the iPad exhibits outsized usage patterns beyond its actual marketshare. Gartner said in the third quarter, iPad shipments have dropped to 50.4 percent. But IBM said it contributed 88 percent of the tablet traffic over the long weekend.
