Michigan AG warns of Apple tech scam that could give remote access to your phone

(WXYZ) — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has issued a warning to Michiganders about an Apple tech scam.

A Michigan woman was reportedly contacted by a scammer who told her her phone needed a security update and he could assist with the process.

The woman followed instructions and unknowingly gave the scammer remote access to her phone, and he transferred $1,000 out of her bank account.

Some tech-support scams may begin with a phone call from a real person, while others may be initiated with a robocall. The Attorney General’s office has an example of such a call on its website.

“Whether the call is coming from a live person or a robocall, Michiganders must be cautious whenever contacted by unsolicited callers, particularly when those individuals are seeking access to your personal devices, like a smartphone, tablet or computer,” Nessel said. “As more people are working and attending school from

Apple AirPods and other smart ‘hearables’ are ruling the wearable tech market

Shipments of wearables grew 14.1% in Q2 2020 but a lot of that growth was driven by strong demand for ‘hearables’ like Apple’s AirPods. 

Global shipments of wearables rose to 86.2 million in the second quarter or 14.1% year on year, according to analyst firm IDC. 

Wearables bucked the downward trend in the much larger smartphone category, which saw shipments decline by 14% in Q2 to 285 million units, according to a recent report from analyst firm Canalys.

But, according to IDC, the main driver for growth in wearables in Q2 were “hearables” like Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro, as well as rival products from Samsung and Xiaomi. Shipments of gadgets like AirPods grew 32.6% and accounted for 60% of all wearables in Q2 2020.  

“Hearables show much stronger and broader demand than smartwatches and fitness trackers,” said David Myhrer, research vice
