Some users have been locked out of their Apple IDs after installing the second iOS 10 beta that was rolled out to registered developers Tuesday. The bug causes testers to be signed out of their devices “for security reasons,” and then prevents them from resetting their passwords.

The Reason Why The World Isn’t Ready For Lion Internet Recoveries [Opinion]



Apple is pushing out more updates to computers released in 2011 to enable Lion Internet recovery. Initially this recovery feature was only available on the MacBook Air and Mac Mini when they made their debut in July.  Recently, however, Apple made it available on certain model MacBook notebooks and this week it was released for early 2011 iMacs like the one I purchased in June.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m surprised that Apple enabled Lion Internet Recovery on my iMac. I thought they’d hold out and only offer it on a refreshed model as an incentive to upgrade.
