Apple is well-known to have a tight security system in all of its services and applications. But several developers recently reported a possible security breach in the company’s Developer Website. According to a report from Macrumors, some developers’ home addresses had been changed to an address in Russia. The Developer Website suffered a temporary outage due to maintenance. The issue has already been resolved and Apple confirmed that it was not a security breach like most of the developer speculated.

Not a security breach

The issue started because of a bug in the account management application, and as a result, it displayed incorrect account details and address information.

All developers that are affected had the same addresses. The last major hack of Apple’s Developer Website was back in 2013, and the site was taken offline for several days. Developers were kept in the dark for two days before the company finally revealed the intrusion. But at that time, Apple assured the developers that their sensitive details were totally encrypted and inaccessible. However, some names, mailing addresses, and email addresses may have been leaked.

Samsung is the sole supplier of OLED screens for Apple’s iPhone 8. According to KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple urgently needs another OLED screen supplier other than Samsung. Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that the OLED displays for the upcoming smartphone will cost Apple between $120 and $130 per unit, well beyond the $45 to $55 per unit Apple is said to pay for the iPhone 7 Plus’ 5.5-inch LCD screen.

The iPhone 8 marks the tenth anniversary of the “iPhone” line, which why fans are expecting too much from it. The iPhone 8’s screen will be totally different from its previous models.
