The iOS failed passcode option, plus security update 11.4

John Gruber for Daring Fireball: 10 Strikes and You’re Out – the iOS Feature You’re Probably Not Using But Should. The feature he’s referring to is the passcode option “Erase all data on this iPhone after 10 failed passcode attempts”. I don’t have an iPhone, so haven’t really looked into the feature, but it certainly seems that it’s a more useful, less daunting option than you might think.

Paul Ducklin for Sophos: Apple’s iOS 11.4 security update arrives in an iCloud of silence – “We updated to iOS 11.4, because that’s our habit – but Apple still isn’t saying what was fixed yet. How we wish Apple wouldn’t do that!”
