iOS 10 beta has an unencrypted kernel, and it might be for a reason
Apple is clearly in the spotlight after the whole iPhone 5c San Bernardino case, and as much as the company fought back and won, the fact that the FBI was able to find purchase a walk around says a lot about the money-driven iOS exploit market. It’s clear that it exists, and it does work, so why on earth would Apple make things any easier?
Well, here’s the thing, iOS 10 beta is confirmed to have launched with an unencrypted kernel, something which is so un like Apple. Not all is lost though as security experts claim that the release does include a security measure that protects Apple’s kernel from modification, avoiding any sort of danger to existing devices in the market.
As for the reasons, speculation claims that this could be Apple’s way of trying to deflate this money-driven iOS exploit market, given the risk it poises. Sure, accidents do happen, but this is one we are sure belongs in some sort of check list before the launch of any version of iOS. Hopefully we’ll learn more of why whenever the final version launches.
