THE AVERAGE IPHONE IS UNLOCKED 😯 TIMES DAILY, APPLE

Apple, at a press briefing on Friday, divulged a sensitive information that iPhone owners unlocked their devices, on average, 80 times daily.

Apple also maintained during that press briefing that it has the “most effective security organization in the world,” and discussed multiple layers of iPhone security on both the hardware and software side to underscore this point.

The press briefing with Apple engineers was highly technical, including details that were previously undisclosed and in some cases might require deep knowledge of security protocol to understand.

But it doesn’t take a degree in CS to understand the timing and relevance of the briefing: Apple is currently at odds with the U.S. government over the issue of encryption.

While the government is exerting pressure on Apple to make the iPhone less secure and to cooperate when it comes to obtaining crucial digital information, the company is adamant that doing so would compromise the privacy and security of consumers.

Apple used the briefing to stress its stance in the ongoing encryption debate putting tech companies at odds with organizations like the FBI and to point out that it can build security into every level, because it controls the entire phone.

Apple said, the figure was relevant to the conversation because about 90 percent of iPhone owners use either a fingerprint to unlock their device with Touch ID or a multi-digit numeric pass-code. That’s a lot of people taking cyber security seriously.

Venture capitalist Mary Meeker’s 2013 internet trends report said people tend to at least check their phone up to 150 times a day, considering you can look at lock-screen notifications to, say, read a text message or check who sent you an email without unlocking the device. So 80 daily unlocks from there doesn’t sound too far off.

More so, you can read the statistic another way. While it’s a victory for cyber security specialists that a vast majority of consumers use bio metric identification and hack-proof pin codes, we’re also desperately addicted to being wired during nearly every minute of every day. At least we’re more secure, for now.

That’s great for consumer protection — but poses a difficulty for law enforcement agencies who may previously had enjoyed free access to data on criminals’ iPhones.
