- A preliminary version of iOS 14 has been leaked online since “at least February”.
- This would explain all the leaks that happened over iOS 14 in recent months.
- Apple could do without many of the leaked news for security reasons.
Those of Cupertino have leaked a preliminary version of iOS 14 that has reached the hands of developers but also cybercriminals, a fact that could overturn the company’s plans to not risk that its future devices have security holes.
In recent months, information regarding iOS 14 has been leaked, a somewhat strange fact because there are still weeks until the presentation of this new version of the operating system. Now a new report ensures that a preliminary version of iOS 14 has been leaked online at least since February.
According to Vice, both security researchers and bloggers but especially hackers have had access to an early version of iOS 14 at least since February, which would explain the number of leaks we have had from iOS 14 as the relative to customizable widgets or the Search application, among other things.
Although it is quite normal for a series of features to be leaked for a new operating system months before its presentation, it is much more worrying that a preliminary full version has reached the hands of people who could put at risk an entire operating system such as the aforementioned hackers.
In addition to the aforementioned customizable widgets or a new search application, a new fitness application, a new API for the stylus, iMessages update, a new view of the home screen have also been leaking over the last few weeks, the ability to test third-party applications by scanning only a QR code, etc …
This could have caused that Apple has thrown to the ground all the leaked news in this version that has reached hackers, and what we see next September with the premiere of the new iPhone is totally different, which could even cause some delay.
In general, Apple has always shown its new iOS at the developer conference in June, which this time will be held on the 22nd at an online event.
