If Apple decides to produce bigger iPhone 5 screen or smaller-size iPad, it won’t puzzle application developers who were able to attend to the recent WWDC. Developers do not believe that the changes will be so painful they will have to pay attention to it. Research analyst at U.S. consulting firm Piper Jaffray Gene Munster asked a hundred San Francisco event attendees and developers. He asked them all the same question: how difficult it is to adapt their applications to increased or decreased iPhone screen size (whether it is a new generation of iPhone or iPad). The developers were asked to rate the complexity scale of updating their applications for new screen sizes. The average score was 3.4 of 10 – this proves that the
This article is for those folks who think (or even are sure) that their iPhone was attacked by a malicious Ikee.b worm. Here’s the full article with virus description and its working schemes overview. The virus is pretty dangerous because it can do a lot of harm to your device.

By the time iOS 2 appeared iPhone could perform pretty amazing things. But it also turned out that the jailbreaking kills the phone’s defense pretty much. The whole security architecture including code signing and many other things become vulnerable. But you can use any antivirus app to keep your iPhone safe.Rooting also makes field suitable for attacks wider by adding software.
