Anyone notice how the impact description for almost all of them is useless. "May access protected parts of the OS" yea? Well computers give us that for free, at least PCs do, if we bought the phone and OS from you we have every right to access ANY part of the OS.

The OS, namely "iOS", is protected to inhibit malware, spyware and adware. Be glad that Apple is constantly patching and updating their OS when vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered. If they didn't, iOS would be just as crappy as Android. Think before you post.

Furthermore, you don't buy the OS. You buy the hardware and the right to use the software. It is still Apple's property. The same goes with any software you may use. You don't own it...you use it.

Judging by YOUR post, you need to be the one "thinking before you post" ! How do you think IOS has achieved an operating system that can even partially be used on a closed source platform? It's because of jailbreaks that allow full system access that Apple has come up with the majority of their "cool" new features and that great updated UI that they now have, according to iphone fans of course. Apple has "borrowed" the majority of all of the tweaks and UI changes that jailbreakers made while the device was "vulnerable" , therefore allowing Apple to keep creating such an "awesome" mobile OS that is basically the same damn OS since it was first introduced on the original iphone, years ago! So keep using those pages full of square icons and keep having to touch the screen 10 damn times just to perform the most basic tasks that an Android user has been doing for years... Closed source very well may keep out a lot of malicious attacks by viruses and such, but if you knew even a little bit about computers you would already be able to handle the task of keeping your system safe and virus free, but you choose Apple to do the thinking for you. Lol Open source platforms allow full development and most importantly, full control, over YOUR devices hardware! It's the software, that Apple designs, that truly eliminates the possibility of fully utilizing the hardware that consumers OWN and should have the right to fully make use of. Hell, you paid good money for Apple to hold your hand while you use YOUR devices! Have fun with that, I like to be free to choose whose hand that touches mine. ;)
