Every two years Apple changes everything, again! Today Apple announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the latest generation of it's smartphone devices. Highlights include:

  1. Incredible new cameras with powerful depth of field capabilities
  2. Stunning new hardware design, powerful new processor, improved battery life
  3. Lightning and wireless headphones (no more analog headphone jack)
A full listing of the new hardware capabilities are on the Apple website.  Pre-order begins September 9th.

It was great to hear from Apple that over 140 Billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store. And that App Store downloads are growing at a rate of 106%. These points reinforce the AppArmor approach. Mobile is the best place for safety and security resources. But, we already knew that, right?!

AppArmor custom mobile safety apps have been tested on preliminary releases of the iOS 10 operating system; all testing has gone smoothly. We will be doing additional testing when the physical devices are shipped. Our development team is super-excited to begin exploring the additional capabilities on the new devices as we enhance the AppArmor mobile safety platform in the future. We're hoping a nerd fight doesn't break out over who gets to unbox the new device first!
