The new iPhone, a 5.5-inch phone that came out in November, has been the subject of a lot of discussion online lately, and now it appears there may be a third party who thinks that the phone may be causing damage to computers.
This is not the first time a computer program has been used to spread rumors about an Apple product, but the latest rumor comes from a company called the Computer Club of America, which says that the iPhone has “a vulnerability to hackers that will be discovered and fixed over time.”
The Computer Club says the iPhone could be a potential threat to “the whole computer industry” and that the problem is “the inability to remotely control the iPhone from a laptop computer.”
While we have not yet heard from the Computer Gang of America about this alleged threat, there is no reason to believe that the computer program is false.
In fact, we’ve heard from people who have been told by Apple employees that the company is working on ways to make it harder for hackers to gain control of the iPhone.
There’s also no evidence that the Computer Clubs claims are true, and the company did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment.
While Apple has not released a statement, there have been other reports about the iPhone’s vulnerability.
In May, a hacker called ‘Hacker Team’ claimed to have discovered a flaw in the iPhone that would allow hackers to take over the phone remotely.
In July, an Android developer named ‘The Hacker Team’ told the New York Times that the same flaw existed in Android, but that it was too hard to find.
Both stories were later retracted.
And in December, an employee from Apple’s security team revealed that Apple was investigating “potential vulnerabilities” in iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
The company has also recently said that it is looking into “potentially insecure” iPhones.
It is also unclear whether the Computer Group of America has made any claims that the iPhones are a security risk.
Apple did not respond to our request for clarification.
