Australians are big Apple iPhone users. About 55% of the smartphones in use here are iPhones, and last month Apple boss Tim Cook told an investor briefing that iPhones hold the top two spots for smartphone sales in Oz. So plenty of Aussies will be looking over the tech giant’s new offering launched overnight. For device lovers, there’s iPhone 13 with a better camera (that some experts say only a pro would notice) and significantly better battery life. A mini will set you back US$1,199 up to a Pro Max, starting at $1,849. Not to be forgotten: new iPads and Watches, but no new AirPods soz. Also not to be forgotten: a new security update… The detection of new spyware that lets hackers access devices through iMessage means get onto it ASAP. Chalk it up to one of the many cybersecurity issues Aussies experience every… 8 minutes. The Australian Cyber Security Centre says that more than 67,500 cybercrime reports were made last financial year – that’s 13% up on the previous 12 months.
