A few hours ago we told you that an iOS 10 kernel is no longer encrypted so that developers can discover bugs and security holes in the system more easily . Although many initially thought that this was a bug in the new iOS, TechCrunch was able to confirm that this was an intentional move by Apple.
The technology website was able to speak with a spokesperson for the apple company, who stated that ” the kernel cache does not contain any user information , and without encryption we can optimize the performance of the operating system without compromising security” .
In previous versions of iOS, Apple has kept the core encrypted, leaving developers in the dark. This time, the company wants to do the opposite and therefore published an unencrypted kernel, so that bugs and security holes in the system can be discovered more easily .
With the above, Cupertino’s signature made it clear that this was not an oversight, because, in the words of the expert Jonathan Zdziarski of the MIT Technology Review, this omission would be equivalent to forgetting to put the doors on an elevator of a new building.
