Mr. Robot-Inspired FSociety Ransomware Emerges

3 people viewing this

| By toonice12 - 32 minutes ago



Real-life experiences are often transformed into successful movies, but a piece of ransomware inspired by the Mr. Robot TV series proves that the reverse is also possible.

The new ransowmare family was named FSociety because it uses an image that appeared in the Mr. Robot show as the logo of an infamous hacking group called FSociety. According to Bleeping Computer, the malware’s creator appears to be a fan of the show, but the ransomware itself is in its early stages of development.

For the time being, the ransomware doesn’t display a ransom note and does not provide users with information on how they can contact the author. Despite that, however, the malware does encrypt users’ files. However, researchers discovered that only a test folder on the Windows desktop is targeted at the moment.

Discovered by Michael Gillespie, the FSociety ransomware is based on the EDA2 educational ransomware that already spawned numerous variants earlier this year. Released in the beginning of 2016, the educational ransomware has been already retired by its developer, Utku Sen.

The same as other EDA2 variants out there, the newly spotted ransomware family was designed to encrypt users’ files using AES encryption. Next, the malware would upload the RSA encrypted decryption key to a command and control (C&C) server.

The new threat is likely to receive improvements shortly, but it remains to be seen what these will be and whether they will improve the code enough to prevent security researchers from cracking it.

Previously, researchers were able to neutralize EDA2-based ransomware fast, because of a backdoor that Utku Sen included in the code. In fact, flaws that were packed in the Hidden Tear’s code allowed security researchers to crack the encryption of this ransomware’s offsprings as well.

Article inside That Innovation! Apple Will Release A Curved Display iPhone In 2017, Just Like Samsung

29 people viewing this

| By Jago - 1 day ago

Quote:


Apple will reportedly release a trio of new iPhones next year, including one premium model with a curved display similar to those used in Samsung devices. That's according to a report from the Nikkei Asian Review, which quotes a source "familiar with Apple's plans." The anonymous tipster told the publication: "There will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches, and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides."

This description is pretty vague, and could mean an iPhone with the more noticeable curves of the Galaxy S7 Edge, or the subtler lines of the Galaxy Note 7. Nikkei also quotes an analyst claiming that Samsung will be a supplier for these new displays. The publication notes that the premium iPhone will also use OLED for its screen — something that's been previously rumored (as well as the curved display), with earlier sources suggesting that a 5.8-inch OLED display is being prepared for the device.

Nikkei notes that it was previously expecting a "premium" 5.5-inch model to be released this year as well, but says that the device was scrapped by Apple, and that the company will instead be releasing a regular 5.5-inch "iPhone 7 Plus" and a 4.7-inch "iPhone 7." It's worth noting that Nikkei's source doesn't mention the fate of the (4-inch) iPhone SE in 2017.

Apple is set to unveil new iPhones early next month. Nikkei’s source backs previous reports from Bloomberg and others that the 5.5-inch model will come with a dual-camera system while the 4.7-inch model will use a single lens. We’re expecting the phones to resemble the iPhone 6 and 6S designs, only with less pronounced antenna lines, the removal of the headphone jack, and a pressure-sensitive home button.

Video inside North Korea Just Launched Their Own Version Of Netflix and Its All Kim Jong Un

4 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 1 day ago


North Koreans can now binge-watch a variety of documentaries featuring their supreme leader Kim Jong Un in a service similar to Netflix — sort of.

The North Korean government-sanctioned video-on-demand service named Manbang will soon be offered to the North Korean citizens, NK News reported.

Manbang, which means “everywhere” in Korean, will allow people to stream feature videos about Kim Jong Un. It also reportedly plans to provide educational programs about the Russian and English language.

As an added bonus, subscribers will also be able to read Rodong Sinmun, a state-run newspaper, and watch the Korean Central News Agency, a local propaganda network.

The service requires a box set (similar to an Apple TV), which is connected to an internet modem. An HDMI cable is also attached from the cable box to the television.

While the promotional video from KCTV touts the device as on-demand, a nationwide roll-out of the service is highly unlikely. Considering that only a tiny percentage of the country has internet access, only a few thousand North Koreans out of its total of 25 million population will be able to enjoy the service.

“The information and communications (IOT) technology is based upon two-way communications,” engineer Kim Jong Min, the man behind the project, was quoted as saying.“If a viewer wants to watch, for instance, an animal movie and sends a request to the equipment, it will show the relevant video to the viewer… this is two-way communications.”

Image inside Verizon once again ranked king of the U.S. carriers

3 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 1 day ago



Though Verizon is not always the subject of great press, keeping almost 150 million subscribers happy at all times is quite the unenviable task. One of the reasons why it is the largest mobile carrier in the United States is that, on all-round performance, its services are difficult to match. Though T-Mobile and John Legere have made great strides in an effort to break the Verizon-AT&T duopoly, research gathered by RootMetrics has placed Big Red atop six tests on reliability, speed, data, text, calls and overall.

The figures took into account various aspects of network performance throughout the first half of this year. While Verizon comfortably claimed the gold medal in every category, RootMetrics ranked AT&T a close second as a "strong number-two performer behind Verizon at the national level."


Sprint and T-Mobile managed third and fourth respectively in RootMetrics' findings. Both were found to be at their strongest in built-up, metropolitan areas, though T-Mo's general nationwide call coverage fell alarmingly short of its three main rivals. The tireless efforts of RootMetrics' research spanned the entirety of the U.S. population, leaving little doubt as to the conclusions drawn.

The full report makes for an intriguing read, which you may find at the source. RootMetrics has also posted a video summary of its findings, which we've embedded below.

Video inside Fixed wing Disco drone takes flight next month

4 people viewing this

| By phantomnation - 1 day ago





Half a year after debuting a prototype at CES, Parrot’s finally ready to show off the final version of its next radical entry in the rapidly expanding drone space. The Disco marks a noted departure from both the French company’s earlier effort sand the consumer drone space in general, trading in the standard rotored configuration for a fixed wing variety designed to soar speeds up to 50 miles an hour for as long as 45 minutes.

The drone’s hardware hasn’t changed al that much since we first caught a glimpse back in January. The Disco weighs around 1.6 pounds and is constructed largely of a flexible, rugged foam. The single rear propeller does the heavy lifting, and inside you’ll find a slew of on-board sensors, including GPS/GLONASS, a barometer, magnetometer, gyroscope and accelerometer. There’s also a built-in 14-megapixel wide angle lens with, naturally, digital stabilization.

One of the more interesting new additions is the goofily named C.H.U.C.K – that’s Control Hub & Universal Computer Kit. The system is designed to assist first time pilots, and help the drone take flight when tossed into the air, grabbing ahold of the system and circling around in the sky until it’s time for the pilot to take charge. At that point ole C.H.U.C.K takes a back seat, but continues to assist, helping keep things in check.

Two more key additions are worth noting here. First are the Cockpitglasses, a sort of Gear VR/Google Cardboard deal that works with an iPhone or Android handset, turning the Disco into a FPV system, so the users can get a view from the drone’s camera while it’s in flight, along with some real-time flight metrics via a textual overlay.

The Parrot Skycontroller 2, meanwhile, features dual joysticks and a series of customizable buttons for taking control of the drone via WiFi. All of that will run $1,300 when it launches next month.

Damn! "It was real" Update of NSA hack...

3 people viewing this

| By toonice12 - 2 days ago

This is a update from my last thread that breaks down basically "what does what" from the toolkit....

This week someone auctioning hacking tools obtained from the NSA-based hacking group "Equation Group" released a dump of around 250 megabytes of "free" files for proof alongside the auction.

The dump contains a set of exploits, implants and tools for hacking firewalls ("Firewall Operations"). This post aims to be a comprehensive list of all the tools contained or referenced in the dump.

Exploits

EGREGIOUSBLUNDER A remote code execution exploit for Fortigate firewalls that exploits a HTTP cookie overflow vulnerability. It affects models 60, 60M, 80C, 200A, 300A, 400A, 500A, 620B, 800, 5000, 1000A, 3600, and 3600A. The model of the firewall is detected by examining the ETag in the HTTP headers of the firewall. This is not CVE-2006-6493 as detected by Avast.

ELIGIBLEBACHELOR An exploit for TOPSEC firewalls running the TOS operation system, affecting versions 3.2.100.010, 3.3.001.050, 3.3.002.021 and 3.3.002.030. The attack vector is unknown but it has an XML-like payload that starts with <?tos length="001e:%8.8x"?>.

ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL A remote code execution exploit for TOPSEC firewalls that exploits a HTTP cookie command injection vulnerability, affecting versions 3.2.100.010.1_pbc_17_iv_3 to 3.3.005.066.1. Version detection by ETag examination.

WOBBLYLLAMA A payload for the ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL TOPSEC firewall exploit affecting version 3.3.002.030.8_003.

FLOCKFORWARD A payload for the ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL TOPSEC firewall exploit affecting version 3.3.005.066.1.

HIDDENTEMPLE A payload for the ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL TOPSEC firewall exploit affecting version tos_3.2.8840.1.

CONTAINMENTGRID A payload for the ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL TOPSEC firewall exploit affecting version tos_3.3.005.066.1.

GOTHAMKNIGHT A payload for the ELIGIBLEBOMBSHELL TOPSEC firewall exploit affecting version 3.2.100.010.8_pbc_27. Has no BLATSTING support.

ELIGIBLECANDIDATE A remote code execution exploit for TOPSEC firewalls that exploits a HTTP cookie command injection vulnerability, affecting versions 3.3.005.057.1 to 3.3.010.024.1.

ELIGIBLECONTESTANT A remote code execution exploit for TOPSEC firewalls that exploits a HTTP POST paramter injection vulnerability, affecting versions 3.3.005.057.1 to 3.3.010.024.1. This exploit can be tried after ELIGIBLECANDIDATE.

EPICBANANA A privilege escalation exploit against Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) and Cisco Private Internet eXchange (PIX) devices. Exploitation takes advantage of default Cisco credentials (password: cisco). Affects ASA versions 711, 712, 721, 722, 723, 724, 80432, 804, 805, 822, 823, 824, 825, 831, 832 and PIX versions 711, 712, 721, 722, 723, 724, 804.

ESCALATEPLOWMAN A privilege escalation exploit against WatchGuard firewalls of unknown versions that injects code via the ifconfig command.

EXTRABACON A remote code execution exploit against Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) devices affecting ASA versions 802, 803, 804, 805, 821, 822, 823, 824, 825, 831, 832, 841, 842, 843, 844. It exploits an overflow vulnerability using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and relies on knowing the target's uptime and software version.

BOOKISHMUTE An exploit against an unknown firewall using Red Hat 6.0.

FALSEMOREL Allows for the deduction of the "enable" password from data freely offered by an unspecified firewall (likely Cisco) and obtains privileged level access using only the hash of the "enable" password. Requires telnet to be installed on the firewall's inside interface.

Implants

BLATSTING A firewall software implant that is used with EGREGIOUSBLUNDER (Fortigate) and ELIGIBLEBACHELOR (TOPSEC).

BANANAGLEE A non-persistent firewall software implant for Cisco ASA and PIX devices that is installed by writing the implant directly to memory. Also mentioned in the previously leaked NSA ANT catalogue.

Article inside VZW'S Shammo says that offering unlimited 4G LTE data is not a sustainable business plan

4 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 2 days ago

Hey Verizon customers, feeling a little left out? Last week both T-Mobile and Sprint announced unlimited everything packages. T-Mobile One offers unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE for $70 a month for the first line, $50 for the next line, and $20 a line for as many as six additional users. There are some caveats as we pointed out last week. Unlimited video comes to you at 480p (DVD quality), although an extra $25 a month will boost the resolution. And the carrier's top 3% data hogs can be throttled if they are in an area with heavy cell traffic at a specific moment.

Sprint's Unlimited Freedom also offers unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data, but at a price of $60 a month for the first line and $40 a month for the second line. That will save you $20 a month over T-Mobile One for two lines. Sprint does say that streaming video, music and games are optimized, which is carrier code for throttled. While Sprint wasn't as transparent as T-Mobile was by revealing the resolution of its streaming, we would guess that it will match the 480p DVD quality that T-Mobile subscribers will be viewing.

AT&T has its own unlimited package, which is limited in availability to DirecTV subscribers. Pricing is $100 a month for the first line, and $40 a month for the second. And that leaves Verizon's unlimited plan. Hold on while we search for it. Uh, well folks, we can't seem to find Big Red's unlimited data plan mainly because it doesn't have one. And while that's par for the course with the nation's largest carrier (widely known as the most expensive of the big four), there might be more to Big Red's decision not to offer unlimited service. There is some talk that the carrier does not have enough spectrum to handle the rush of traffic that unlimited data would bring.

Verizon CFO Fran Shammo said a few months ago at an industry conference that unlimited doesn't work with 4G LTE connectivity. That is because carriers need to generate cash to reinvest in their infrastructure. As a result, the executive said that unlimited will eventually fade away. But analyst Walter Piecyk of BTIG Research says that the real problem is that Verizon is running out of spectrum to convert to 4G from 3G. And Verizon has promised to keep 3G services up through 2020 which limits it even more.

Piecyz says Verizon's recent move to raise rates and data caps could be a sign that it is restrained by a limited amount of spectrum. The carrier is trying cell site densification to add more cell sites, but this is going slower than expected as many cities and town are resisting the attempt to add the additional sites.

Quote:

"Verizon continues to cite low spectrum usage but evidence in the largest and most population dense markets suggests they are quickly running out of spectrum that they can convert to 4G from 3G, particularly given their commitment to keep a 3G network in service until 2020, and the amount of voice traffic that is still carried over their legacy CDMA networks. It is clear that Verizon is pushing forward on cell site densification to increase capacity, but that appears to be going slower than expected as towns and cities are pushing back on aggressive small cell deployment plans, an issue cited on the conference calls of Sprint, tower companies and CommScope, among other places. It’s also questionable whether the limited service area of a small cell can solve Verizon’s capacity needs in the near and intermediate term."-Walter Piecyk, anallyst, BTIG Research
Verizon wants you to believe that offering unlimited data is a short term move used by T-Mobile and Sprint in an attempt to shake out the low hanging fruit at Verizon. Others say that a lack of spectrum is preventing Verizon from joining the other carriers. Even though Verizon spent $10.4 billion last year on AWS-3 airwaves bought during an FCC auction, the nation's largest carrier is going to have a tough time convincing everyone that a spectrum shortage isn't the issue here unless it comes up with an unlimited plan of its own.

Article inside Milk Shake-up: Samsung to close Milk Music in the U.S. on September 22nd

3 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 4 days ago

Back in 1967, Herman's Hermits had a top ten tune called "No Milk Today." Baby-faced singer Peter Noone and his toothy grin managed to take a song about sex and turn it into one as safe as, well, milk. That obviously brings up Samsung's Milk Music service which streams tunes to those rockin' a Samsung Galaxy or Note device. Starting on September 22nd in the U.S., there will be no more Milk Music as Samsung will be shutting it down. This news shouldn't be surprising; back in March we told you that the manufacturer was looking to close Milk Music.

While the free tier of Milk Music did score some subscribers, the paid version of the streaming music service failed to bring in a sizeable amount of revenue for Samsung. Priced at $3.99 a month, the premium subscription allowed users to have an unlimited number of skips. It also did away with the ads that ran on the free version of the music streamer. Because it didn't offer tunes on-demand like Spotify, the service was similar to Pandora with its focus on "stations" comprised of certain artists, music style or era.

Samsung's service was powered by Slacker, and Sammy recommends that Milk Music subscribers sign up with the music streamer. In a statement, Samsung said that it would rather switch to a "partner model" that will offer Galaxy and Note users the best available music services.

Quote:

"Samsung is sun setting its Samsung Milk Music service in the United States on September 22, 2016. We have made the strategic decision to invest in a partner model focused on seamlessly integrating the best music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices. We believe that working with partners will accelerate innovation, enhance device sales and provide amazing new experiences for our customers."-Samsung

I Switched to Android - Here's Why

3 people viewing this

| By King Jackson - 4 days ago

Long story short; I've been using an iPhone since the 3G. Yesterday i switched to the Note 7. This is EASILY the best phone I've ever used. Below are a couple points as to why I switched.

1. Features - the amount of usable features, not gimmicks, is unbelievable.

2. Battery - I've had this phone in my hand since yesterday at 4PM. Only put it on the charger once.

3. Customization - two words, Nova launcher.

4. Freedom - the iPhone is locked down. Even after jailbreaking. This Note 7 out the box is just way more open. And contrary to popular opinion, Android is just as easy an OS as iOS.

All I'm saying is, if you're itching to try Android, do it. We all know what the next iPhone is bringing, and it's nothing compared to what's I my hand.

Come, come to the darkside

Sprint's Unlimited Data Plan

2 people viewing this

| By King Jackson - 5 days ago



Quote:

Joining a chorus of carrier updates, U.S. wireless carrier Sprint today revealed an unlimited plan of its own. Called Unlimited Freedom and available starting at $60 per month, it offers unlimited 4G LTE data, talk and text, with the ability to add a second line for an extra $40 per month, or up to eight lines for an additional $30 per month each.

Additionally, Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary Boost Mobile revealed a similar plan of its own. Both plans are available for new and existing customers starting tomorrow.

As you may have suspected, there some fine print to consider:

Video is streamed in DVD-like 480p resolution
Music is streamed in up to 500kbps
Gaming applications can use up to 2 Mbps data
Unlike T-Mobile’s new $70 per month plan that lets people upgrade video quality to high-definition for an extra $25 per month, Sprint has not said whether it will offer a similar upgrade path for Unlimited Freedom.

End Of The Uncarrier Era: T-Mobile's New "ONE" Plan Is Turrible For Consumers

4 people viewing this

| By Jago - 6 days ago

Quote:


Starting on September 6th, new T-Mobile postpaid subscribers or current postpaid customers looking to change their plan will have exactly one choice: the ONE plan. T-Mobile is dramatically simplifying its [admittedly, confusing at times] plan structure for individuals and families by introducing literally one plan. Again: the ONE plan. It works like this - as you can see in detail in our post on the news - but let me give you the flyby version.

As an individual, you'd pay $70 per month for the ONE plan. Unlimited talk, text, and data. Sounds nice! And simple. But the strings attached aren't so much strings as structural-grade steel cables. Want to be able to watch video above 480p on your LTE connection (i.e., turn off Binge On)? You'll need to fork over $25 per month extra. OK, so now, at $95 per month, it's really unlimited, right? Well, no. If you go over 26GB of data use in a month, you risk being throttled during peak congestion and high network load. Fun!

But hey, at least you get tethering, right? All the tethering you can handle is included... at 2G speeds. If you want proper high-speed tethering? That's another $15 per month, and you get a measly 5GB of tethering data. Once you go over that 5GB, you'll need to pay another $15 for another 5GB of tethering data. Insert Lando Calrissian "this deal gets worse all the time" GIF here.

For the person who uses their smartphone in the way T-Mobile wants and expects them to - not for mobile HD video, and not for extensive tethering - the ONE plan may represent a solid value. But that value really is just a mirage: HD video and tethering are easily the fastest and most common ways to use up significant amounts of mobile data. And T-Mobile knows this. It's been their plan all along, as is now becoming much more clear: make people pay extra if they actually want to use their plan in ways that typically that consume a lot of data, while simultaneously feeding them a narrative that they're getting tons of "value" and "unlimited" access. The ONE plan seems to be the final piece of the T-Mobile revenue enhancement and marketing narrative puzzle.

You'll likely see a lot of tables and math comparing the new ONE plan to T-Mobile's old plans introduced as part of Uncarrier X last year in the next few days. And I do implore you to pay attention to them. For example, at $65 a month, you can get 6GB of LTE data - all of which is available for tethering and Data Stash. You can also turn off Binge On at no cost on this plan. I don't know about you, but I'd take this deal in a heartbeat over T-Mobile's new ONE plan.

But I'll leave the extensive comparisons to everyone else. What you need to know is this: T-Mobile's new ONE "unlimited" plan is a data plan that makes you pay extra to turn off video data throttling, pay extra to use your plan data how you want to use it (tethering), and is still subject to draconian "network management" restrictions if you go over a certain amount of data each month. In other words? The thing T-Mobile most seems to have "simplified" with the ONE plan is its business plan to investors. The ONE plan seeks to profit on consumers who are actually savvy of how their data plan works and demand it be flexible and not subject to annoying restrictions.

I think we can safely say the "Uncarrier" age is over. This is very "carrier," T-Mobile, and your customers will see it for what it is.

Video inside T-Mobile kills data plans and goes all in on unlimited data

4 people viewing this

| By RatedQue - 6 days ago



T-Mobile sent notices to the media on Wednesday letting us know that a big announcement was coming on Thursday morning, and the buildup continued all day as T-Mobile executives teased a “big secret” that would be “huge.” T-Mobile and its outspoken CEO John Legere have a tendency to make every upcoming announcement sound as though it’s going to be a game-changer, though to the company’s credit, several of its past “Un-carrier” initiatives have indeed been game-changers.

Thursday’s news comes just one day after AT&T announced a shakeup that would see it do away with service overages on its new plans. Not having to worry about overages will be a weight off of many people’s chests, though there is a downside: Instead of being changed for excess data, AT&T will now throttle subscribers to 2G speeds when they’ve hit their data limit in a billing period.


Can T-Mobile top AT&T’s big news from Wednesday? It’s time to find out.



T-Mobile on Thursday announced that all of its data plans moving forward will be unlimited plans. T-Mobile will no longer offer service plans with tiered data, instead T-Mobile will offer a “T-Mobile One” plan that offers unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data.

In terms of pricing, the first line on a T-Mobile One plan will cost $70 per month, the second line is $50, and then additional lines are $20 each up to eight lines. Those prices apply to customers who use autopay — accounts without autopay will cost an additional $5 per line. For a family of four people, that works out to $40 per line for unlimited calling, messaging and data.

Tablets can also be added to T-Mobile One plans for $20 per device.

Now, for the bad news: Unlimited really does mean unlimited, but don’t expect truly unlimited 4G LTE data at maximum speed. T-Mobile says that accounts that use more than 26GB of data in a billing period “may see their data traffic prioritized behind other users once they cross that threshold during their billing month.” In other words, the heaviest users will be throttled. According to T-Mobile, this caveat will likely affect about 3% of its subscribers.

Other tidbits worth noting: like Binge On, this new unlimited plan downgrades streaming video to 480p. Subscribers have an option to pay $25 extra per month per line for unlimited high-definition video streaming. Tethering is also throttled to 2G speeds by default, though users have the option to pay $5 per month per line for 5GB of tethering at 4G LTE speeds.

Like all changes when it comes to updating service plans, T-Mobile’s new plans will save some subscribers money while costing others money. It depends entirely on usage and a subscriber’s current plan. Some T-Mobile customers will save money by sticking with their current plan instead of making the switch, while others stand to save by updating to the new T-Mobile One plan once it launches next month.

The new T-Mobile One plan will become available to new and existing T-Mobile subscribers beginning September 6th.


Of note, Sprint also announced new unlimited plans on Thursday for both the main Sprint brand and Boost Mobile. Sprint’s “Freedom Unlimited” plan offers subscribers unlimited talk, text and data for up to 10 lines. The first line is $60, the second is $40 and lines three through 10 are $30 each. There are also some caveats, but the basic details are outlined in the following graphic (click to enlarge):

Article inside Apple sales drop 20% at Target during the second quarter

2 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 7 days ago

Target chairman and CEO Brian Cornell was talking to Wall Street analysts today about the rough second quarter suffered by the retailer. He mentioned the double-digit percentage decline in revenue the retailer had in electronics, and noted that Apple devices had a 20% drop in sales in Target from April through June.

The retailing executive didn't want to target the iPhone (no pun intended) for the drop in revenue. Instead, when asked by a Goldman Sachs analyst if the drop in Apple revenue was due to weak iPhone sales, Cornell said the issue was a "broader story across the product suite." The Chairman and CEO said that Target is working with Apple to help promote and sell Apple's new products in the second half of the year. Besides the new Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, he could be referring to the rumored Apple Watch 2 and a possible sequel to the 9.7-inch Apple iPad Pro.

Quote:

"Our guests come to us looking for those products. They are looking for the newness and the innovation and we are putting together plans with Apple and our merchandising teams to make sure we are ready to take advantage of that in the back half of the year."-Brian Cornell, Chairman & CEO, Target
The latest rumor has the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus getting unveiled on September 7th. According to a leaked AT&T memo, the two phones will be available for pre-orders starting on September 9, with the actual launch of the phones taking place two weeks afterward.
