With iOS 8, Apple is finally opening avenues to app developers that were previously restricted territory, allowing accessing to certain APIs like the system-wide extensions, Touch ID and keyboards, making it possible for apps to be better integrated throughout the system rather than remain in their isolated silos, and thus making possible an experience that’s similar to the freedom that you get on Android, iPhone’s largest competitor.

The Internet is abuzz with rumors and reports surrounding the upcoming iPhone 6 these days (both of them, apparently), and rightly so, since there’s hardly been a device in recent history that has been so extensively leaked.

With as much technology infiltration as we have in our daily lives today, it becomes quite a challenge to truly protect and maintain your privacy and data security. It’s not just the inherent risk with technology and software bugs, either; we willingly expose our personal identification information to a number of parties in order to use their services. Take the newest discovery, for instance, where it has been found out that an Android phone that has its screen turned off and is connected to Wi-Fi network, can actually be actively browsing the user’s location history to anyone who’s interested in listening.
