Every story has a different perspective. T.C. Sottek took Apple’s response to the recent iOS exploits in the wrong direction.
Apple responded to Google’s discovery of a major iPhone security flaw with a bristling statement that accused its rival of creating “false impressions.”
Google did. They were dead wrong.
Apple did very little to clear up those false impressions, and seems to have created some of its own
No, Apple did not. This is typical Verge spin.
Google originally published detailed information about the iOS exploits, it conspicuously did not say specifically why they were created or who they were targeted at.
Google was wrong and handled the issue poorly. Apple handled the issue well.
Apple’s framing minimizes the context and potential consequences of the exploit against that community in favor of irritation at Google’s blog post and the subsequent media coverage.
The problem was fixed six months ago. Google was wrong.
