Coding isn't difficult nor is writing secure code.
There is simply a discipline and protocol that needs to be followed to make sure that all the code you write is as secure as possible, requiring coding standards, code review, vulnerability testing, so on and so forth.
I guess if writing secure code is easy (sorry, my mistake) then you're pointing out that Apple is unwilling to pay for the correct testing of that code or is rushing untested code to market.
That's too bad. This again validates the thought Apple is only concerned about making money - shortcuts are everywhere. Apple seems to be just as guilty as the next guy.
Thanks for clearing this up.
Then again, Microsoft, a much bigger company, continues to produce "secure code" with more holes than Swiss Cheese so don't hold your breath.
You've got that backwards, Apple is bigger than Microsoft. Again, shame on Apple.
