When Apple typically issues mid-cycle iOS updates, I don't always update my iPhone immediately. Especially if the new update doesn't address any serious security issues or have any compelling new features, I've never been in a rush to update my phone if things are already running smoothly. The recent release of iOS 14.5.1, however, is an exception and an update you'll probably want to download as soon as possible. Apple first released iOS 14.5 just about a week ago with a host of new features, including the company's new App Tracking Transparency framework, new Siri voices, a multitude of new emojis, support for AirTags, and more. Just a few days later, Apple rolled out an iOS 14.5.1 update that it said addressed a bug associated with its App Tracking Transparency feature. An Apple support document, however, reveals that the new iOS update also addresses two serious security issues. While it's not uncommon for iOS updates to tackle security issues or bugs, this update is different insofar that the security issues at play may have already been exploited in the wild. In other words, these aren't theoretical security issues, but rather security issues with potentially real-world consequences. Addressing the two security issues, Apple notes that it's aware that both of them "may have been actively exploited." Both security issues involve WebKit and involve all iPhone models going all the way back to the iPhone 6s. A number of iPad models are impacted as well: Apple details the security content of its iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates as follows: WebKit Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited. Description: A memory corruption issue was addressed with improved state management. CVE-2021-30665: yangkang (@dnpushme)&zerokeeper&bianliang of 360 ATA WebKit Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited. Description: An integer overflow was addressed with improved input validation. CVE-2021-30663: an anonymous researcher Apple hasn't provided more detailed information about how the issues above may have been exploited, but you'll still want to update to iOS 14.5.1 as soon as you can. Security issues aside, there are several other reasons to update to 14.5.1 if you're still running iOS 14.4 or an even older iteration of iOS. To this point, some other iOS 14.5 features worth mentioning include: Unlock iPhone with Apple Watch Ability to unlock your iPhone X and later with Apple Watch Series 3 and later when you attempt to use Face ID while wearing a face mask AirTag and Find My Support for AirTag to keep track of and find your important items like your keys, wallet, backpack and more, privately and securely in the Find My app Precision Finding uses visual, audible, and haptic feedback to guide you directly to your nearby AirTag using Ultra Wideband provided by the U1 chip on iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 models AirTag can be located by playing a sound via the built-in speaker The Find My network with hundreds of millions of devices can help you find your AirTag, even when it isn’t nearby Lost Mode notifies you when your AirTag is found, and you can enter a phone number where you can be contacted Siri Siri now includes more diverse voice options Incoming calls can be announced with Siri, including who is calling, when you’re wearing your AirPods or compatible Beats headphones, and you can answer hands-free Group FaceTime calls are supported by asking Siri to FaceTime a list of contacts or a group name from Messages Emergency contacts can be called by asking Siri Privacy Podcasts Podcasts Show Pages are redesigned to make it easier to start listening Option to save and download episodes, automatically adding them to your Library for quick access Download behavior and notification settings can be customized on a show-by-show basis Top Charts and popular categories in Search help you discover new shows 5G Improvements Dual SIM support enables 5G connectivity on the line that’s using cellular data on iPhone 12 models Smart Data Mode improvements further optimize your experience on 5G networks for better battery life and data usage on iPhone 12 models 5G international roaming enabled on supported carriers on iPhone 12 models News
BGR Deals has a large audience and our readers always tend to gravitate to certain products on Amazon. Needless to say, all that attention from our savvy audience often makes it difficult to keep these popular products in stock. Considering how many people out there follow BGR Deals to see all the best bargains online, it's not exactly a mystery why these fan favorites go out of stock all the time at Amazon. Also important is the fact that online shopping continues to soar due to the pandemic. As a result, things generally go out of stock these days even more often than they used to. When popular items finally appear back in stock, we always do our best to let readers know so they can take advantage of restocked deals. Today, we're going to highlight five particularly popular best-sellers that are all back in stock right now, like Amazon's #1 best-selling portable Bluetooth speaker that's on sale for $23.99 instead of $36, the awesome Potensic Elfin Mini 2K camera drone that folds up to the size of a smartphone, and insanely popular Gosund Mini Wi-Fi smart plugs that normally sell for $28 per 4-pack but are down to just $3.57 each right now when you check out with the coupon code 77KBX5Q2. That's a new all-time low price on awesome smart plugs with a whopping 51,000+ 5-star ratings on Amazon! We spent a ton of time sifting through all the best-selling products among our readers in order to find the most popular items that keep selling out. Then, we dug around on Amazon to find the hottest products that are currently back in stock. Examples include super-popular Apple's awesome AirPods Pro back in stock at Amazon's lowest price of 2021 so far, and the incredible Acer Chromebook Spin 311 convertible laptop with an eye-popping $236 discount. The potential bad news is that just because these popular items are back in stock now, that doesn't mean they'll stay in stock for very long.

Apple streamed its first big virtual event of 2021 on April 20th to unveil a host of new products, including a redesigned iMac, an M1-powered iPad Pro, an upgraded Apple TV, the purple iPhone 12, and the long-awaited AirTag. All things considered, it was an incredibly busy event for the company, so it's no surprise that some highly-anticipated devices didn't make the cut. One such rumored announcement was that of the next AirPods model, and while there wasn't any news on that front at the Spring Loaded event, the leaks have continued to spring online. In a new video published on his YouTube channel this week, EverythingApplePro unboxed and showed off a pair of AirPods clones that look exactly like what we expect the third-generation AirPods to look like when they launch later this year. They're called Air60 TWS and only cost $45, but they might be our best look yet at the AirPods 3 design. For months, we've been hearing that Apple's next AirPods would feature a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro. Subsequent leaks suggested that the AirPods 3 would have a shorter stem like the Pro model, but would forgo the replaceable ear tips as well as premium features such as Transparency and Active Noise Cancelling. As the YouTuber notes in the video, the knockoff headphones are 1:1 with the CAD renders that have leaked online, so if those leaks are accurate, the Air60 TWS should be virtually identical to the AirPods 3. As expected, the charging case is something of a mashup of the cases for the AirPods 2 and the AirPods Pro. With the shorter stem, Apple can make the case more stout, while the lack of ear tips means the case can be less wide as well. Stacked up next to each, the AirPods Pro and the cloned AirPods 3 look incredibly similar, save for the ear tips and the larger sensor on the clones. The stem is slightly thicker on the clones as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0v9tKvQSmM Throughout the video, EverythingApplePro cites an extensive leak from Chinese site 52audio that revealed many of the specs and features of the AirPods 3 earlier this year. That leak did claim that the AirPods 3 would feature optional ear tips, but that isn't the case with these knockoffs, at least. As for the price, 52audio believes that the AirPods 3 will sell for $150, while other sources think Apple will stay in the $200 price range, which is how much second-generation AirPods with a wireless charging case currently retail for in Apple's online store. It has now been more than two years since the second-generation AirPods made their debut, and about a year and a half since the AirPods Pro launched, so it's only a matter of time before Apple is ready to refresh both product lines. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we're probably going to be waiting until at least Q3 2021, though.

The two foldable phones that Samsung will reportedly unveil as soon as July have appeared in a number of leaks, seemingly confirming that the next big Unpacked launch event is approaching fast. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 already sound more exciting than previous Samsung foldables, and that’s because the Korean giant has been working on fixing the biggest complaints about this smartphone form factor. Previous foldable phones were more fragile than traditional handsets and a lot more expensive. A plethora of separate reports indicates that Samsung is bringing various upgrades to the Fold 3 and Flip 3 to increase durability. And a brand new report from Korea suggests Samsung is also looking at cutting the entry price significantly. The two Galaxy Z handsets are supposed to feature foldable glass displays that will be stronger than last year, and the handsets will also be water- and dust-resistant. On top of that, Samsung might have improved the build quality of other components and the overall design to prevent accidental damage. Samsung has also been working on foldable cases to go along with foldable phones. The Fold 3 and Flip 3 rumors we saw so far did not reveal the pricing structure for these phones or their release dates. InfoStockDaily offers purported launch details for the clamshell model. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 will launch on August 3rd, according to the report. If the launch date is accurate, the phone might be introduced in early or mid-July, giving buyers two weeks to preorder the handset. More exciting is the Flip 3’s price, if the site’s information is genuine. The Foldable might start at $990, which is more than 30% cheaper than the $1,449 price of its predecessor. At nearly $1,000, the Flip 3 would match the iPhone 12 Pro’s price. The Flip 3 would still be expensive, but let’s not forget that Samsung handsets don’t retain their value as iPhones do. The Flip 3 could be even more affordable in the months following the launch, which usually happens with Samsung Android flagships. On top of that, Samsung will surely host various promotions during preorders. The company has also been running extended trials for foldable devices earlier this year to give buyers more time to decide. And Samsung has discounted last year’s foldable phones already. These are all signs that Samsung is looking to make foldables as affordable as possible. Recent reports did say the company plans to replace the Note with the more expensive foldable handsets and increase foldable sales in the process. If the Flip 3 price rumor is accurate, we’d expect the Fold 3 to be more affordable at launch than its predecessors. However, the Fold 3 is unlikely to sell for less than $1,000. The Fold 2 currently retails for $1,599, $400 cheaper than its launch price last year. Its successor should be at least as expensive in a best-case scenario.

Apple’s top app store executive on Thursday faced an avalanche of documents unleashed Thursday by an Epic Games lawyer aiming to prove allegations that the iPhone maker has been gouging app makers as part of a scheme hatched by Apple's late co-founder Steve Jobs. The confrontation in an Oakland, California, courtroom came during the fourth day of an antitrust trial targeting the empire that Apple has built around its iPhone and the digital storefront that serves as the exclusive outlet for people to install apps on the ubiquitous device. Epic, the maker of the popular Fortnite video game, contends Apple's insistence that apps to pay a 15% to 30% commission on transactions has turned into illegal monopoly that that should be blown up so other options can be offered on the iPhone, iPad and iPod.
