Recently, many have started questioning the security of iPhones and iPads after iOS security hacker Jonathan Zdziarski recently claimed Apple had purposefully made backdoor access points for a variety of system and user data on iOS devices, that would usually be locked and encrypted via the passcode.
Zdziraski said at the time that anyone with access to this pairing data can then locate the specific iOS device on a Wi-Fi network. He says that certain tools from inside the operating system can give automatic access to data, allowing copying and relay of all data stored on iOS device.
Just as it was expected, Apple has denied the allegation, reiterating its previous statement:
"Apple has never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services".
Apple also referred to the information exposed in the presentation, saying that it is used for diagnostics purposes by “IT departments, developers and Apple” for debugging. Apple representatives said that this data is never transferred without explicit consent.
