Security concerns are a priority for Apple as they approach launch

According to reports, Apple’s iPhone 6 just might be the most secure that they have ever released. Much of that security will be thanks to the release of iOS 6, which will be much more secure than past releases from the company.

The first thing that is going to help in this journey is using a technique known as MAC spoofing, in which your phone’s address will be hid from those around you until you have actually connected to their network. Typically phones send out your address to all of the possible connections around you, making it easy to track your exact locations and leak out the security of your device.

They will also be taking charge of the kinds of spammers and advertising hucksters that have filled into the App Store. Developers have begun receiving a lot of different rejection notices due to a variety of things, such as asking for the app to be shared on Facebook. They will also rule out Apps that have too much advertising inside of the App itself.

These two are just the start of their efforts to keep their devices secure. When it comes to the ever changing world of information security and hacking, it seems like there is never enough done. They hope to change that and make sure that they have the most secure customers in the world.
