Thanks for reaching out to us. Yes, if you lose control of your device/OAuth tokens or cookies for that matter, your session may be hijacked. As you know, WhatsApp creates a second backup of the phone’s contacts on its folder, so the contacts will be also copied.

We hope you continue to contact us with issues like this in the future. Thanks for helping keep WhatsApp secure!

The New iPhone 6s & iPhone 7 Release Date on September 9th, 2015

The official unveiling of Apple’s next iPhone, dubbed the “iPhone 6s”, is fast approaching and has been announced to be on Wednesday, September 9th, – much as it does every year to be in mid-September – or should we say the new iPhone 7 is coming? Good question! Going by the above pattern, and assuming that Apple keeps a small (4.7-inch) and large (5.5-inch) version, designating the latter ‘Plus’, we’ll have the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Apple also will probably launch the new iPad Pro, an offical speaker on behalf of the company refused to reveal such information though.

However, there are also rumours that we will get a 3rd phone this year – an iPhone 6c. Also a consistent rumor and speculation over the last few months has pretty much confirmed that Force Touch will be amongst the new features that will be introduced with the new iPhone 6s, a feature that allows the operating system to split user interaction into varying groups depending on the force of the touch detected on the display. Despite all this, Apple could choose to buck its own naming convention and go straight in with the iPhone 7. We’ll just have to wait to find out.

Expected New Features of the New iPhone 6s or iPhone 7

Camera – The next generation of the iPhone will see the “biggest camera jump ever”, offering quality to rival a DSLR, it’s been reported that the new device would include a “weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.” What exactly the “two lens” system refers to is unclear, and is likely to remain so until the launch. It was claimed too that the next camera will receive a welcome bump up to 12MP, with the front camera capable of recording 1080p video at 60fps, 240fps in slow motion mode and flash support.

Force Touch – is one of the most interesting new features that will be introduced with the next iPhone, a feature that allows the operating system to split user interaction into varying groups depending on the force of the touch detected on the display.

There could also be a new processor – the A9 – and guess what? It will be produced by Samsung. A smaller, faster and uses less power, just as you’d expect from a new chip. The current A8 series use a 20nm process and the new ones would use 14nm. RAM is also likely to be upgraded to 2GB from the current 1GB.

iOS 9 – is also likely to introduce new features at a software level. Among the features we’re hoping to see in iOS 9: improved parental controls, group FaceTime calls and split-screen app multitasking.

We expect a lot more from Apple to come up with its next iPhone 6s aka iPhone 7, as all of you iPhone lovers, we shall stay tuned and excited to see the queues snaking around Apple stores across the globe and surely in Apple’s new store in Dubai, UAE.
