iOS 7 Unleashes More Security for Apple Users
Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) new iOS 7 isn’t garnering as much attention as the highly anticipated iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, but that doesn’t mean the new operating system is any less impressive. In fact, many industry sources are now saying that the iOS update could give way to Apple’s most secure iPhone ever — and that is certainly worth celebrating.
PCMag.com offered an in-depth analysis of the operating system’s new security features Saturday, illuminating for readers that the iOS 7 update is not only improving the system’s looks but also improving its capabilities altogether. The new operating system effectively covers all the security bases and helps prevent against malware while also protecting its users from phone theft, unwanted callers, and intrusive advertisers.
Apple recognizes that a significant problem with the popularity of its iPhone is that thieves want in on the goods, too. iPhone theft is at an all-time high, and although Apple has done its best to roll out features that protect its consumers from such burglary, many continue to visit the company’s stores every day, filing for stolen phones.
