Talk about a security first: Apple, which normally details no security vulnerability--or even admits to its existence--before patching, sent Dallas De Atley, manager of Apple's platform security team, to deliver a highly polished overview of current iOS security to a near-capacity conference room crowd.
While Apple earned kudos from security experts for simply showing up, others questioned whether the technology firm couldn't have opened more of a dialog with attendees, for example detailing future security refinements they're pursuing, or providing a more candid look at iOS security successes and failures. But the session ended with no allowance for audience questions, and De Atley swiftly departing through a side door.
