A new scam has arrived is been distributed around making our customer concerned thinking there Apple ID will be disabled within 24 hours if they don’t reply.

If you receive this email please don’t open the attachment that’s is enclosed this email.

A Apple spokesman comfirmed this a virus and advises no customer to open the attachment. They confirmed Apple does not start emails with “Dear (email address)” they said they have loads of calls regarding this and some people are receiving 3 times a day. They also confirmed if you Apple ID was locked then you wouldn’t receive a email regarding this, you would find out when you tried to log in and would then have to contact Apple support.

There a various variants of this type of email (together with the ‘you have a virus’ scams). Never click on a link or follow up a phone number in emails or pop-ups of this type. Although Apple do own Apple.co.uk they always send emails from Apple.com – it’s very easy to fake the ‘From address on email’

Users of iPhone have been warned of an iMessage bug that will cause your phone to become completely unusable.

Dubbed the “Black Dot Of Death” when received the message will overload your iPhone with thousands of hidden Unicode text.

You won’t be able to re-open the messages app to delete it and there is no easy way to delete the message once you receive it.

If you receive the message and all it contains is a black dot, when you click on the dot it will make the screen go completely blank until Apple issues a fix for you.

If you have been hit with the Black Dot of Death, there are a few ways you can delete it.

One is to force close the messenger app, use 3D Touch from the home screen to select a new message, then cancel out of it. From there you should be able to go to the list of conversations on iMessage and safely delete the conversation containing the Black Dot.

If your phone doesn’t have 3D Touch, you can use Siri to reply to the message until the original “Black Dot” message is pushed out of the visible part of the conversation on the screen. Then you will safely be able to delete the conversation.

New iPhone SE 2 renders reveal gorgeous glass back

New renders of the upcoming iPhone SE 2, which depict it’s gorgeous glass back, have been revealed by a popular case-maker.

Olixar is already producing accessories for the device based on information it has gleaned from sources in China. It’s new screen protector indicates the iPhone SE 2 will be a big surprise, with a edge-to-edge display like the iPhone X.

The iPhone SE certainly isn’t the most popular smartphone in Apple’s lineup, but it remains hugely important. Not only is it significantly more affordable than it’s siblings, but the only iPhone that hasn’t been supersized to meet the demand for larger displays.

In a effort to keep it’s price low, Apple has made minimal to the iPhone SE in recent years. The device still carries the same design introduced with the iPhone 5 in 2012. But this year’s model could look a whole lot different.

iPhone SE 2’s new glass back revealed

Olixar has published more renders of the new iPhone SE based on information it has obtained from partners in China. They reveal a new glass back — just like that on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X series — which will likely allow wireless charging.

We’ve heard a number of times before that wireless charging will be one of the biggest improvements to the new iPhone SE. Olixar also expects the device to have a edge-to-edge display. with a notch, just like iPhone X. But that seems even more unlikely now.

Apple won’t give the iPhone SE 2 Face ID as that would drive the cost up and defeat its purpose. That means it will have to stick with its trusty Touch ID sensor, but there’s no sign of that in the pictures Olixar has provided of the front and back of the device.

With that in mind, we suggest you take these renders with a pinch of salt and don’t get your hopes up for a iPhone SE with a edge-to-edge display this year… or for the foreseeable future.
