iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X: What Apple changed


At its September 2017 event in Cupertino today, Apple announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, plus the iPhone X, a new flagship to commemorate the device’s 10th anniversary. Apple’s 11th-generation phones are now official.

Preorders for the first two begin September 15, and the devices will begin shipping September 22. Due to supply constraints and manufacturing delays, you’ll have to wait until October 27 to preorder the iPhone X, and until November 3 for the latest and greatest Apple phone to ship.

Before you get your credit card ready, and assuming you’re not enthused by Android 8.0 Oreo (that’s really your only option, as Windows 10 Mobile and BlackBerry are dead), you might want to see what exactly you’re getting. The tables below show you what Apple has changed, comparing the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7 Plus to the iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone 8 Plus to the iPhone X, at the time of each of their respective launches.

For both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, you’re getting slightly larger and heavier devices, with marginally better specs. In the cases where you get more storage, you’ll be paying more for it.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
