Here's Every App And Company That Apple Tried To Kill At WWDC

Last week, Apple announced a huge batch of products aimed straight at the heart of existing companies and apps. Here are just a few of the things that are feeling a spinning beachball target on their backs.


Apple's iCloud Drive Takes A Swing At Dropbox

Apple just announced on stage at WWDC iCloud Drive, its cloud storage syncing system that sounds sneakily similar to Dropbox. iCloud Drive syncs your stuff across all your devices, and across all platforms — even Windows.


How Did Apple's Australian iCloud Hack Happen?

Apple users were rightly mystified this week by some iPads, iPhones and Macs being compromised, remotely locked and held to ransom. Security experts have weighed in on the possible cause, and their recommended solutions.


Hackers Are Using Find My iPhone To Hold Australian iOS Devices For Ransom

A strange rash of virtual iPhone kidnappings in Australia recently spread to the United States. Hackers appear to be using Find My iPhone to lock iOS devices remotely and then demanding a ransom to unlock them. Said ransom is payable through PayPal. You should not pay it.


Aussie iPhones, iPads And Macs Hijacked, Held To Ransom

Some iPhone, iPad and Mac users are reporting their devices have been compromised, with a message appearing that locks owners out and demands a US$100 ransom be sent to the hackers over PayPal. While the cause of the vulnerability hasn’t yet been established, there’s one common factor: it looks like every hacked device was sold in Australia.


Why Has Apple Been Registering Nonsense Domain Names For The Last Year?

Apple owns a bunch of obscure, new and unused domain names, including iPhone.guru, retina.camera and facetime.photography. At least these domains sound like they have a purpose, but the Cupertino company is also doing something a lot weirder. Since March last year, Apple has been registering utterly random domain names and then cancelling them a few days later.


iMessage And Parts Of iCloud Are Down [Updated]

Looks like Apple is having a tricky time of things this morning: its iCloud and iMessage services are currently experiencing difficulties.


iCloud Is About To Look A Whole Lot More Like iOS 7

The slow creep of Jony Ive’s flat-friendly software design is starting to pick up its pace with the new beta version of iCloud.com. That scratchy old black background is now dreamy blue and blurry just like iOS 7. The app icons have lost a dimension as well, and they now look like their iOS 7 counterparts. Frankly, it looks lovely.


Dropbox Just Changed Everything About How You Use Apps

Way back when, Steve Jobs told Dropbox that it was a feature, not a product, which was enough at the time. Now, Dropbox’s reach stretches wide enough, and its influence is great enough that it just levelled up. It’s not just syncing your files and folders anymore. It’s trying to sync literally everything on your phone, tablet and computer. Game saves, settings, contacts, notes — all of it, and on any phone or tablet you have.


Apple's New Google Docs Competitor Is Now In Beta

Apple’s long-overdue stab at a cloud editing service has finally come to, well, some of the masses. If you happen to be an Apple developer, iWork for iCloud is available to you right now.
