blog post concerning a
security flaw in Apple's iOS.
The flaw put user iPhone data at

Ten days after being contacted
by Google concerning the flaw,
Apple fixed the issue.
The tech giant fired back at Google,
saying the post created panic "among
all iPhone users that their devices
had been compromised.".

Google responded, saying its
researchers wrote the blog "to
focus on the technical aspects
of these vulnerabilities." .
The company added that it stood
by the post and "will continue to
work with Apple and other leading
companies to help keep people safe online.”
