Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo: the challengers leading China’s charge against Apple

theguardian.com — The idea that one of America's most talismanic businesses - and the world's biggest company by market value - might one day come to rely on China for its growth would have seemed strange just a decade ago. But for iPhone maker Apple, what happens on the other side of the world is suddenly crucial to its future.

@GISF_ND @csoghoian clearly the update introduces a new check against hardware.

Feb 06, 2016

@KMosiejczuk @chort0 you twigged that those people updated from io8 to ios9? Maybe there’s an extra hardware check in 9 that isn’t in 8?

Feb 06, 2016

@GISF_ND @csoghoian “option to disable” is a back door for anyone. Notification more sensible.

@AdamShrimpton were they able to recover the phone? Wd welcome description of your experience.

Feb 06, 2016

@p_ansell @thegrugq @geoffreyfowler it’s an encryption key pairing which remains in the phone AIUI. Not a “tool”.

Feb 06, 2016

@jakimfett @geoffreyfowler that’s wrong. These were people who subsequently upgraded to ios9. Suspect it would be immediate if already on 9.
