Interesting isn’t it? Apple stated that Apple Pay was more secure, yet it is marred by higher fraud rates than Google Pay and Samsung Pay. Apple blames the banks, but ultimately it is a failure of management to control this process. Apple seems to promise things that they don’t deliver on-like this.
Promising and not delivering is something Apple has had a problem with for years. A few years back Apple claimed they didn’t get viruses, yet viruses, worms and more have always happened to macs. Then Apple started to do a limited amount of anti-virus but didn’t tell people about it. At that point, Apple stopped saying they are safe from viruses. Apple makes it seem that they are safe, but all the time there are vulnerable to problems.
Another example would be the Mac store. Recently it was found certificates in software were revoked due to an outdated security method and all that time they were not revoked the computers were vulnerable. Some issues have existed on Apple systems for years like Unix flaws, and that took years to discover them.
There are more examples where Apple dropped the ball, didn’t tell its users, and the customers suffered. It doesn’t say great things about being an Apple customer when you can’t trust the company who promised their system was safe. Yes nothing is a guarantee, but you shouldn’t promise what you can’t deliver.
One of the objections to this is that Windows or any software is going to have vulnerabilities, and that is the nature of software. That is a fascinating answer and ultimately a deception. Unix software has worked and been tested for several decades, and when apple changes the Unix foundation to replace it with an Apple “improvement” it causes problems.
For example, for a long time Apple used a specific way to get DNS and it had issues. They replaced it with an Apple software that really made it difficult to use in business. I had to work on those issues when this happened. Then Apple realized the error of their ways and replaced the older Unix software. Being a software company should be like being a doctor. “First do no harm”. You don’t replace software without extensive testing, which almost every company now doesn’t do. Apple used to be famous for not crashing, but it has crashed more in the past 5 years than it ever did before. Where is the quality?
