@mxswd Does Apple claim that AirDrop is E2E? I thought they just said it uses TLS. Is there no way to MITM that?

@mxswd I’m aware of that. But then I can’t have a backup of the rest of my phone.

@NSExceptional Yes. It doesn't have to be this way, though. They could have an automated test that submits known good builds.

@simX I’m sure it’s drawing power because the battery level is not declining with the display on. Will take a look at the logs, though.

@simX @pointum It does show the lightning bolt and colored battery.

@sirdigby Thanks! Twitter is fine, or you could e-mail the address at the bottom of my blog.

@simX @pointum That’s what I thought, but Apple ran diagnostics and said it was normal.
