BlastDoor protects your iPhone from malicious messages

We’ve all seen reports of a wallpaper that can brick your phone in the past, or a text message that contains code that sends your phone in to a boot loop. Well it turns out Apple wasn’t keen on at least the later, and with iOS 14 it created a system called BlastDoor – which keeps any data arriving in a message separated from the phone’s OS until it has been verified as safe, or Defused.

It’s an extension of Sandboxing, but I think in the past Messages had been a system level process which possibly left iPhones more vulnerable than Apple would like, so they quietly implemented this behind the scenes. It’s completely invisible to users, just as they like it.

Facebook Prepares AntiTrust suit against Apple.

In what seems to be the sequel to Apple V Fortnight, Facebook is now preparing a lawsuit against Apple because they don’t like playing by the App Store rules. Now this particular suit is because they don’t believe Apple’s own Apps are having to abide by the same privacy and other rules as third party apps, though Apple has published all the information on their website that already covers that. You know. Details Mark.

But it sounds like even Facebook’s own employees are not happy about the battle with Apple – and themselves seem uncomfortable with some of the company’s practices around privacy – so it remains to be seen if this action comes to pass or if its really more grandstanding on the side of mr Zucks.
