  1. As an iOS developer I would have loved to know earlier. At the same time, though, I didn’t want misunderstandings and gut reactions, I wanted to know what the issue was. Maybe Apple knew and just didn’t say. But I would bet they were still trying to figure out the extent of the issue before notifying us. I’m no security expert but I can’t imagine tracking down and understanding the full extent of a breach is easy nor trivial.

      Great points. My argument here is that they need to be more open about situations such as this and they need to update their playbook about communications.

      1. Om,

        I agree with you. They should have informed their dev community (as you pointed out, a crucial part of their ecosystem) of the breach as soon as they confirmed that it was indeed a security breach. Waiting to give details is fine, but I’m sure that many members of the community would have reset their passwords to other accounts using the same e-mail address as soon as they found out.

  2. This was bound to happen, by being the biggest tech company in the World, you make yourself the biggest tech target in the World also!

  3. I lost trust in Apple long ago when they never even had 2factor authentication.. which is an easy task for a company like Apple.
