Apple is going to start requiring you to use a 6-digit passcode in iOS 9

Original story from: http://knowtechie.com/apple-whats-safer-than-a-4-digit-passcode-a-6-digit-one-610/

 

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this year came with very few surprises—a new OS X, iOS 9, Apple Pay in the UK and watchOS 2. Even the ‘one more thing’ tease was too obvious with the introduction of Apple Music, the company’s new music streaming service.

No one, however, expected the iOS passcode to become more irritating by requiring 6 digits.

It’s the smallest of things that people always like to moan about nowadays. In fact, I will join this first world problem revolution and say it—yep, the six-digit passcode is annoying.

At WWDC, Apple placed strong emphasis on security, claiming that their users’ privacy is up their pecking order. I respect that, and truly hope this is true; we have all heard about Apple’s former disregard for privacy when using location tracking services.

Apple expects the six-digit passcode to be less prone to bruteforce solutions that have recently appeared on the market. Such devices have been able to take between 6 seconds to 17 hours to bruteforce a four-digit passcode. Traditional bruteforcing would take longer to unlock an iOS device given the 10,000 possibilities of a four-digit passcode, which can include letters as well as numbers. The new six-digit passcode requirement would be up to 100 times hard to crack.

Unlocking an iOS passcode with bruteforce

Regardless, six-digit passcodes will be an even greater hassle than four-digit ones. TouchID has always been the better and faster security measure that makes everyone forget about unlocking a device. This makes one wonder if Apple’s six-digit passcodes come as a double-edged sword. It’s true that six-digits are more secure, but also more annoying, which makes TouchID feel even more of a breeze, thereby making the user more keen to buy the latest iOS devices.

Leaked Iphone 7 release date

Original story from:
http://www.mobilenewscwp.co.uk/2015/06/05/exclusive-leaked-email-reveals-iphone-7-release-date/

‘New iPhone’ will go on sale via Vodafone on September 25, according to e-mail leaked to Mobile News

 

Vodafone has told internal staff the next Apple iPhone handset will be released on September 25.

In an email to staff seen by Mobile News, the operator outlined pre-launch information, including that the operator will begin taking pre-orders for the device from September 18.

The email described the device as the ‘New iPhone’, suggesting the Californian firm may look to follow its strategy with its iPads by not giving it a number (7).

There was no information on whether a follow-up model to the larger screened iPhone 6 Plus would be made available. Apple previously described the 6 Plus as “cannibalising” the iPad after sales in its last financial results.

Apple has launched its last three flagships in September. The manufacturer has sold more than 700 million iPhone’s since the first incarnation went on sale back in 2007. Eight models have been released in total.

Electronic Repair Training

Electronic Repair Training

Late 2010 we started offering technology repair classes, we started offering them as a cell phone repair one week course, we expanded quickly to Laptops, Game consoles, and TV Repairs, we trained customers till that day when one of our students told us " your course is so good, you can build a whole new business around it, I have attended another cell phone repair class in New Jersey and Nevada , but I have learned in one week in Tampa more than I learned combined in other courses" .


That customer is running now a successful Electronics Repair shop in the USA.


We then decided to cease our courses as we knew that our courses are underpriced and they have to be offered as a complete business module , not individual courses.


Once you decided to carry our name , training session will be organized in our head office in Wesley Chapel, Florida, not only you will get hands on training and real contact with retail customers, but also learn about the market, goals, strategy, risk and Returns

Why choose Gadgets Repair? -Licensing

Why choose Gadgets Repair? -Licensing

We started our business in 2001 as a cell phone wholesaler. In 2003 we invested in a cell phone repair franchise and ran our operations under that name. We terminated that franchise in 2006 due to many operational problems with the Franchisor. For example, the monthly Royalty Fees were unrealistic and increased our overheads.


With the arrival of the IPhone in 2007 our business grew substantially along with other manufacturers offering various touch screen phones. As the competition increased we developed other venues and services to expand our base and as a result increased our revenues.


In 2012 we brought in new technology and our business model kept pace along with our technical skills. As a result, we launched, "GADGETS REPAIR".


In 2013 and early 2014, we have seen the fall of 3 of the most famous cell phone repair franchisors in the Tampa Bay area, some were independent owned, some were corporate, There are many reasons why any business would fall and shut down their door, based on our 14 years experience, we can say that the costly overheads is the number 1 reason to blame. We have seen money burned by small investors who want to get into this business and think that 2 weeks training is enough to start.


Simply put, we will give you the honest advise, we were a franchisee one day and know that all current franchisors are overpriced.

Are you really going to make money out of cell phone repair?

Are you really going to make money out of cell phone repair?

Are you really going to make money out of cell phone repair?

 

The most famous 3 cell phone repair franchise have opened up stores here in the Tampa Bay area and then they shut them down , will they guarantee your success??

 

By law, they are obligated to disclose how many franchises have shut down their doors, ask them that before they ask you any agreements to sign.

 

 

·         What makes your Store goes out of business, and what makes your store a successful business?

 

There are many answers for those two questions, few to list:

§  Overhead costs are high, which is typical with famous franchises.

§  Hiring unqualified technicians, employees

§  Thinking that our module will be successful with absentee management.

§  Very few customers look now for famous brand names, they actually look for the “CLOSEST” store for service, six years ago, we used to get over 20 packages from customers all over the States to repair their devices , now customers do not want to drive even 5 miles.

§  Famous franchises talk about success, not about failure, we speak about both

§  Brick and mortal business might work much better than search engine dominated businesses.

§  they will choose the location for you after you pay the money and sign the contract, with us, we will tell you if your success rate is low or high, for a minimum fee we can do a detailed market research and give you our honest advise, whether you purchase our license or not.  

§  And much more you will learn from our 14 years experience.

 

 

Gadgets Repair is an electronics repair store not only a cell phone repair or computer store, we have made money only on cell phone repair till 2009, and then competition was so tough that in Tampa  we had a cell phone repair store every 1.3 Miles, that is why we had to convert to the Full electronics repair store, we will teach how to stay up with your market’s trends and demands.
