Next two generations of iPhone designed by Steve Jobs

Published 02/04/2013 10:13:39 by ADMIN

This would mean that the design of these devices at least, would have been headed by Steve Jobs.

The discussion between Gascon and Foulkes that had centred on a new type of kill-switch technology for lost or stolen Apple devices, with the iPhone being the particular target was interrupted by Foulkes admission. After this point, Foulkes went on to suggest, “Jobs was involved with concept and design discussions about several future models not long before his death in October 2011.”

Any users, who have not currently adopted the new feature, are allowing hackers the opportunity to change your password and access your personal information using only your date of birth and email address.
