The researchers recently found a new bug in iOS 8, which allows attackers to force iPhones and iPads into restart loops through an ordinary Wi-Fi network. Once the victim enters the so-called “no iOS Zone”, nothing will help their phone other than escaping the range of the malicious network. The device will repeatedly reboot and crash almost immediately.
The attack is based on a specially crafted SSL certificate, which is normally used to ensure a secure connection. This certificate triggers a bug in the OS that crashes out any app using SSL. The researchers created a script that can exploit the bug over a network interface. It was clear that any delay in patching the vulnerability might lead to a serious business impact and big losses.
The matter is that aside from crashing individual applications, the bug can also crash the iOS and even worse – under certain conditions, the devices can get into a repeatable reboot cycle. Even if the device owner realizes that the attack comes from a Wi-Fi network, they can’t help it, because the Wi-Fi interface can’t be disabled due to the repeated restart state.
If combined with another bug named “Wi-Figate”, which allows to force a device to automatically connect to a given Wi-Fi network, the attackers can deny service to any iOS attack in a given area. In other words, victims in range won’t be able to do anything about it. Such an attack, when launched at the largest airports or utility plants, may have catastrophic results.
The researchers announced that Apple has already received the warning of the bug and refused to release any technical details before a patch to fix the vulnerability is issued. Posted by: Date:

As for stability and Warranty ..You Cant do Anything I Do With My Samsung Phone's ...Without Jailbreaking Them ...Then The IPhone, Ipad is Worth Nothing ..No Warranty ,Just Throw In The Bin.
"For Stable And Solid Machine" ...Maybe You Should read The Article above again, While you Wait For Yet Another Fix/Update.

|And now I going to writing something clever|
|well gee, I can't afford imacs or androids. But they are both very pretty. I found an old android phone with a broken screen in a park last year, tried to find the owner, but didn't. Is it finders keepers & can I get the phone re-whatever so it works with a new screen & new whatever inside is needed to turn it on, or is it good only for recycle?|
|iphones and ipads suck. i have an ipad and i dont like. im staying with my galaxy note 4 for now. and to any1 who has a windows phone thats actually worse than an iphone. cause theirs like no apps for a windows phone what so ever it sucks.||
