Rumor: Apple to better protect your system files in iOS and OS X 9 10:11




Apple would plan to tighten security in iOS and OS X. So iOS and OS X 9 10.11 would have at their disposal Rootless, a feature that access to important system files and to prevent malware tackles.

That allows the usually well-informed 9to5 Mac, who relies on sources at Apple. Besides optimizations would the company from Cupertino with the upcoming software updates iOS and OS X 9 10:11 focus on improving security. The main functionality is something that Rootless is called a security kernel level which shall prevent unauthorized person gained access to important system files. Reportedly would make this among other jailbreak difficult. Rootless must also prevent malware and ensure the security of confidential files.

Apple also wants much of its system applications to synchronize data over a secure iCloud Drive connection. This must be replaced include IMAP, reportedly because iCloud Drive offers improved end-to-end encryption. Apple would want to ensure a smooth transition from imap to iCloud Drive: Users get when launching an app a popup asking if the user wants to synchronize switching to Apple’s service. It also tested a so-called “trusted wifi’ function: this enables users without further demands on the security connection with trusted routers, while untrusted routers things like an encrypted connection is required.

Applications would with an update to last year introduced can be reduced programming Swift. With iOS and OS X 9 10:11 would be included the necessary libraries for Swift apps, so developers do not put in their apps. Furthermore, Apple could still working on some minor new features, including improvements for Apple Maps with public transport information and displaying multiple applications simultaneously on the iPad, via split screen. Text should appear in the San Francisco-font, which is also used on the Apple Watch.

Previously came 9to5 Mac all with the rumor that iOS 9 no major new features would include, but would just focus on optimizations. As the site now adds that Apple’s new software will allow older devices perform better. Even the iPhone 4S and the first iPad mini, which this year celebrate their fourth and third respectively anniversary, the update should receive.
