Earlier today, Apple filed a lawsuit against NSO Group as a way of holding it “accountable for the surveillance and targeting of Apple users.”
In addition to the lawsuit, Apple has sought a permanent injunction for banning the Israeli company. This ban will stop the NSO Group from using any Apple product, service, or software.
The NSO Group manufactures spyware and other surveillance technology which allows its users to conduct surveillance on other individuals, such as activists, journalists, academics, dissidents, and other government officials. Their actions, however, are considered focused attacks that target specific users. But despite this, they have an impact on several platforms, such as Android and iOS.
If you are using an Apple iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro, you might want to check if you are having a problem with your device’s speaker. The issue is apparently affecting a number of these devices. But as announced, Apple will cover your phone repair.
Apple has launched a new service program for affected devices. If you have an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro manufactured between October 2020 and April 2021, you may be experiencing a problem with the device not emitting any speaker sound during calls. As long as your device is eligible, you can get free repair from an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
This repair program is available throughout the world. But Apple says that it “may restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase.”
Google is releasing a new update to its Google Messages app. With this new update, reactions coming from iMessage can be displayed as an emoji in the chat.
Unfortunately, this feature will only be available on Apple devices since iMessage is an exclusive app. So if you’re on an Android device and your friend sends you a text message using iMessage, you will receive a full-length text containing words like “Loved” or “Liked” as a reaction to something in the text.
According to 9to5Google, however, Google is working on a solution via an APK teardown. The report suggests that the “Liked” text message will be replaced with an Emoji.

Visible has a single wireless plan at $40/month and comes with unlimited talk, text, and data. With Party Pay, the prepaid brand lets four or more members take advantage of a discount on their service even if they are not a family. Through Party Pay, subscribers can simply join groups of other subscribers to get the discount.
The holiday season is here and Cricket Wireless is getting ready with its offers for the season. For this season, the AT&T prepaid brand is offering select 5G smartphones that start at $0. There are also some free phones for switchers.

Another game, Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story, will be coming to Netflix subscribers soon.
Back in September, Apple released its latest iPhone 13 smartphone models. During its release, Visible announced that it will be giving a HomePod mini with any iPhone 13 model purchase. And now, it looks like the Verizon-owned prepaid brand is kicking things up for iPhone 13 purchases.
For a limited time, you can get a $100-$200 gift card with your purchase of any iPhone 13 model. The good thing about this offer is that you can use the gift card anywhere.
