Samsung Galaxy Tab S7: what we want to see


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is expected to be released by the end of 2020, giving Samsung another shot at toppling Apple's reign as the most popular tablet manufacturer.

Succeeding the Galaxy Tab S6 from 2019, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will be Samsung's top-end tablet for 2020, sitting above the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and any Galaxy Tab A devices launched over the year. It's worth pointing out that some rumors suggest the tablet will be called the Galaxy Tab S20 instead, which would bring the slate in line with the Samsung Galaxy S20 phone nomenclature, but this is contested.

Apple's premium slates, most recently the iPad Pro 2020, are typically considered the best tablets available right now, and give the tech giant a solid reign at the top end of the tablet market. But the Galaxy Tab S7 could give Samsung another shot at gaining the lead.

We've heard a few leaks regarding the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 now, which we've listed below, but we still don't know much about what could be coming. In the meantime, we've also come up with a wish-list of features we'd like to see in the new device.

Apple’s Default iPhone mail app is vulnerable to hackers, researchers claim


ZecOps, a San Francisco-based mobile security forensics company, has discovered a pair of zero-day vulnerabilities in the Mail app on iPhone, iPads that hackers are abusing in the wild, at least, from the last two years to target individuals from various industries and organizations.

In a report published on Wednesday, ZecOps said it found evidence that both the vulnerabilities have been actively exploited by an “advanced threat operator” since 2018. 

According to the researchers, both the vulnerabilities can be remotely exploited by the attackers by simply sending an email to victims’ default iOS Mail application on their iPhone or iPad.

Both flaws mainly affect the latest iPhone software, iOS 13.4.1, though ZecOps says the vulnerability has existed since at least iOS 6, which was released in September 2012. 

“The attack’s scope consists of sending a specially crafted email to a victim’s mailbox enabling it to trigger the vulnerability in the context of iOS MobileMail application on iOS 12 or maild on iOS 13,” wrote researchers.

When the user attempted to open the email message it would crash the iPhone allowing hackers to gain entry into the device giving them access to confidential information. In some versions of iOS, the hack can be triggered when the Mail app automatically downloads a message’s data, without the recipient having to click on anything for their devices to be infected.

The bugs in question are remote code execution flaws that reside in the MIME library of Apple’s mail app.
