Apple is releasing the new iOS 6 today for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. While iOS 6 has many new features that are sure to be a hit for current Apple consumers, there are also reasons to proceed with caution. Rob VandenBrink posted an excellent article on the SANS Internet Storm Center discussing why you should be concerned about what is on your iPad or iPhone. Do you perform banking operations, update your financial portfolios, or even just check your email, update facebook or twitter on your iPhone? Are you aware of the issues of giving your iPhone or iPad access to your bank account? What happens when you lose your iPhone? Hopefully you are protecting it with a reasonable passcode lock and you have remote wipe feature enabled so that in the event your phone is lost or stolen, you can can remotely wipe your data.
