So, what can you expect once you install Apple’s iOS 12 public beta on your iPhone?
iOS 12 public beta is available on all devices that currently support iOS 11. That’s right, not a single iOS device is made obsolete by Apple’s iOS 12 update! Apple says older devices running iOS 12 will see big performance benefits, with key functions getting speed boosts of up to 70%.
Here’s the full list of devices that are compatible with iOS 12:
So we replaced the old western digital 1 terabyte black drive 32 meg cache with a 2 terabyte western digital black 64 meg cache along my adventure I managed to get my windows 7 ultimate disk to work on the mac and I could have installed a full version of windows lol as well and at the end of the day the new drive was able to be installed but there were a few hick ups along the way - there was a sensor I had to get around because apple likes to use the jumper port for anchoring the sensor don't ask me why I don't know they could have gotten the same information using the SATA data and power cables lol, so I had to get the replacement thermal sensor cable
so you want a compatible decent ereader for the mac? lol well there are not many good ones I found this one seems to work pretty good called "Calibre" https://calibre-ebook.com check it out, it just may do the trick.
Tech giant Apple is reportedly planning to prevent anyone who wants to gain access to a encrypted iOS device via techniques like Cellebrite’s GrayKey phone-hacking box by introducing an option to lock USB data access an hour after it’s locked, essentially turning iPhones, iPads, and iPods into sealed black boxes. Officials in the law enforcement community, which has been scaremongering about Apple’s encryption technology for years over the objections of actual tech experts, aren’t happy about it.
In fact, per an article in the New York Times rehashing the plan, police seem pretty steamed about the matter, such as this Indiana state investigator who works on internet child abuse:
“If we go back to the situation where we again don’t have access, now we know directly all the evidence we’ve lost and all the kids we can’t put into a position of safety,” said Chuck Cohen, who leads an Indiana State Police task force on internet crimes against children. The Indiana State Police said it unlocked 96 iPhones for various cases this year, each time with a warrant, using a $15,000 device it bought in March from a company called Grayshift.
Other law enforcement officials weighed in as well, saying the plan was tantamount to providing cover for criminals:
Hillar Moore, the district attorney in Baton Rouge, La., said his office had paid Cellebrite thousands of dollars to unlock iPhones in five cases since 2017, including an investigation into the hazing-related death of a fraternity pledge at Louisiana State University. He said the phones had yielded crucial information, and he was upset that Apple planned to close such a useful investigative avenue.
“They are blatantly protecting criminal activity, and only under the guise of privacy for their clients,” he said.
Michael Sachs, an assistant district attorney in Manhattan, said his office uses workarounds—he declined to specify which—to access locked iPhones several times a week. That has helped solve a series of cases in recent months, including by getting into an iPhone to find videos of a suspect sexually assaulting a child. The man was convicted this year.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office sought warrants to search 702 locked phones in the first 10 months of 2017, the Times added, “two-thirds of which were iPhones.”
However, the paper did note that Apple says it has responded to 55,000-plus US government requests for iCloud data linked to over 208,000 devices since 2013, which isn’t exactly evidence of noncooperation with police investigations. It’s also unclear whether the reported USB-locking feature will actually lock out cops with access to the GrayKey devices or one made by Cellebrite’s competitors—presumably turning off the data port will make the devices stop working, but it’s possible someone could suss out a workaround. Police could also simply move on a suspect within the one-hour window Apple intends to implement.
“We’re constantly strengthening the security protections in every Apple product to help customers defend against hackers, identity thieves and intrusions into their personal data,” Apple told Reuters in a statement. “We have the greatest respect for law enforcement, and we don’t design our security improvements to frustrate their efforts to do their jobs.”
In any case, law enforcement and intelligence community concerns about encryption have long been full of holes. In January, FBI Director Christopher Wray (former chief James Comey’s replacement) called encryption an “urgent public safety issue” and that the agency faces an “enormous and increasing number of cases that rely heavily, if not exclusively, on electronic evidence.” But it recently emerged that the FBI was flubbing numbers on how many encrypted phones have actually turned up in criminal cases.
hey all, so Mac OS Mojave is coming - but you can get that dark mode style right now in Mac OS X 10.13.5 but it will be better in 10.14 coming soon .. Its located in the System Preferences >> General >>
