Apple is Granted License Allowing iPhone to Launch on China Mobile's Network




Apple has been granted the final license necessary to launch its iPhone on China Mobile's network standard, reports the WSJ.

According to the website of China's Telecom Equipment Certification Center Wednesday, Apple was given a "network access license" for a handset resembling the iPhone that runs on the mobile standards used by China Mobile for third and fourth generation cellular services. Other licenses were given to Apple for handsets running the technology used by both China Unicom and China Telecom.

The approval is a strong indicator that Apple will soon launch the iPhone on China Mobile, the world's largest cellular carrier with 700 million subscribers.

The report indicates that vendors in China usually start selling new handsets within weeks of their approval. Apple has indicated that China will be one of the first countries to get the new iPhones when they launch on September 20th but has yet to confirm China Mobile as a partner.

Evad3rs Achieve Unsigned Userland Code Execution on iOS 7




Planetbeing, a member of the evad3rs hacking team, has announced that they've achieved unsigned userland code execution on iOS 7.

He made the announcement in a recent tweet:

Achieved unsigned userland code execution with some of our stuff in reserve. Now we have a good platform for poking the kernel.

Basically this means that they've got behind Apple's walls of security and now can poke at the kernel. Bugs found in the kernel could be used to create a jailbreak for the new operating system.

Yesterday, the team announced that they were investigating iOS 7 GM seed to see which of their exploits still worked.
