The Intercept’s Sam Biddle published a story today citing police documents that he reported prove Apple logs every contact you type in iMessage to share with law enforcement without telling anyone. But it’s not exactly news. Apple doesn’t log every contact you type into your Messages app, and there’s already a lot of publicly available information from Apple about it storing contact info that could be shared with law enforcement. From The Intercept:

“Every time you type a number into your iPhone for a text conversation, the Messages app contacts Apple servers to determine whether to route a given message over the ubiquitous SMS system… over Apple’s proprietary and more secure messaging network…The document implies that Messages transmits these numbers to Apple when you open a new chat window and select a contact or number with whom to communicate”

To be clear, Apple isn’t actually sharing any of your conversations — those are entirely encrypted and out of its reach– we’re only talking about contact numbers here. 

Biddle makes two main claims:

With the new iPhones losing the headphone jack, there are a few options for connecting your old 3.5mm headphones to an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. Apple is giving all new iPhone 7 customers a pair of Lightning EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone adapter in the box, but those might not be ideal solutions for your personal setup. And if you plan on charging and listening at the same time, you need a Lightning dock with audio output or other adapter to get the job done.

We already recommended our top picks for wireless headphones, now we give you our roundup of the best Lightning and Bluetooth headphone adapter and dock accessories for audio on the iPhone 7.   expand full story
