      iPhones of multiple Al Jazeera journalists hit by a zero-click hack
      by Ather Fawaz

      According to The Guardian, many journalists using iPhones with iOS versions lower than 14, have been targeted in a digital espionage campaign. Using a vulnerability present in iMessage (nicknamed Kismet), malicious actors using an NSO Group software were able to hack into the iPhones of 37 journalists leaving their passwords, microphone input, and photos at risk.

      The report, which came out of Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto links four operators to the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, out of the 37 targeted journalists, most are from the Qatari state-owned news channel Al Jazeera. The motivation for the hack isn't entirely clear at this point, but some journalists believe that their work on certain controversial topics in these countries could be the reason.

      The hack was first discovered when a renowned investigative journalist for Al Jazeera's Arabic network, Tamer Almisshal, became concerned that his phone had been compromised. He then turned to Citizen Lab for assistance. After monitoring the journalist's phone, Citizen Lab reported that the attack was based on a zero-click strategy, meaning that one would not have had to click any malicious links to be targeted. "...his phone had connected to an NSO server after it was infected with an apparent malicious code delivered through Apple’s servers. Seconds later, researchers found technical evidence that Almisshal’s phone had been infiltrated," the Guardian wrote.

      Due to the zero-click nature of the attack, it was hard to detect and left behind few traces. The Israeli cyber intelligence and security firm, NSO Group, said it wasn’t familiar with Citizen Lab’s claims and affirmed that it does not have access to the targets’ data. Apple later gave out a statement stating that the attack was "highly targeted", and that it could not verify Citizen Lab's report. The Cupertino firm reaffirmed its recommendation of installing the latest version of iOS since the hack does not appear to work on iOS 14.

      Apple aims to boost iPhone production by 30% in H1 2021 due to strong demand, says report
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Apple unveiled its iPhone 12 series flagships back in October, slightly later than the usual September timeframe owing to the pandemic and its resulting effects on the supply chain. The firm has reportedly been seeing higher than expected demand for its devices, especially the iPhone 12 Pro series of phones. A new report today corroborates those earlier reports, adding that the Cupertino firm is aiming to boost the production of iPhones by up to 30% in the first half of 2021.

      The company reportedly plans to ramp up production of its offerings to up to 96 million units in the first half of next year owing to strong demand for the iPhone 12 Pro series, the second-gen iPhone SE, and the iPhone 11 series. However, the target for these numbers might change depending on the supply chain, availability of components, and fluctuations in demand and the overall market. The target is reportedly close to a 30% increase year-over-year (YoY).

      Additionally, the report states that the full-year plan from the company shared with its suppliers hint at a possible total shipment target of 230 million units, a 20% increase YoY, bringing it close to the record shipments that the firm reached back in 2015. While the yearly shipment targets also factor in newer models, the H1 2021 figures are expected to be achieved thanks to strong sales of the firm’s first 5G enabled handsets, along with affordable offerings such as the iPhone SE. Interestingly, the report cites a supplier executive as saying that the demand for the more affordable iPhone 12 mini has been “a bit sluggish”.

      The expected boom in demand is also thanks to the decline in Huawei’s market share caused by the challenges in procuring key components and software due to the U.S. government’s restrictions. The Chinese company is expected to lose its market share to rivals such as Samsung, Apple, and other OEMs across both mid-range and premium device spectrums.

      Lastly, the report adds that according to people familiar with matters, the company is aiming to ramp up the production of its high-end devices such as the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro next year, likely anticipating high demand for Apple Silicon-powered versions – which the company is expected to introduce in the second half of 2021.

      As for new devices, the company is also reportedly working on a new Apple TV and a new “home entertainment device” for streaming on-demand content. However, not much in the way of information is present about these products.

      Another report emerges about Apple taking lossless zoom seriously on iPhones
      by Rich Woods

      Ever since Apple introduced the iPhone 11 Pro last year, it's been making tremendous improvements to its camera system. But while it's made great strides in low-light performance, videography, and more, Apple just hasn't taken lossless zoom as seriously as its competitors, mostly offering the secondary 2x zoom like it has since the iPhone 7 Plus, although this year's iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 2.5x zoom lens.

      Competitors like Huawei have driven the market when it comes to lossless zoom, introducing a 5x zoom lens in the P30 Pro and a 10x zoom lens in the P40 Pro+. As we first learned about back in July thanks to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is finally set to start taking lossless zoom seriously in 2022 with a 10x periscope zoom lens.

      Now, Korean website The Elec is also confirming this. While it's nothing groundbreaking since we've heard the rumor before, it's still good news for iPhone fans. As mentioned earlier, Apple has made tremendous improvements to its cameras over the last couple of generations, and the one thing that always seems to be lacking is serious lossless zoom chops.

      Of course, the Cupertino firm will have to struggle with low-light performance, something that all companies have to deal with. The higher a resolution you fit into the smaller field-of-view, the more noise tends to be an issue, and the smaller the lens tends to be, letting in less light. Of course, there are ways to use the other lenses to work around this. According to every rumor so far, this should show up in 2022, so we'll find out more then.
