"People who already use i Work in a serious fashion are being sacrificed in the (vain) hope of recruiting a new set of users," says Igot, "it's very sad and discouraging." Also ruffling feathers is reduced support across the board for Apple Script, an Apple tool that allows you to automate actions throughout OS X and its applications.While unlikely to be missed by many, Apple Script is widely utilized by advanced users like Igot to save time.Die Updates räumen auch eine Schwachstelle aus: Für die Verschlüsselung Passwort-geschützter PDF-Dokumente setzten die i Work-Apps bisher nur auf eine schwache Verschlüsselung (RC4 40-bit), wie Apple ausführt – dies könne den Zugriff auf die geschützten Inhalte ermöglichen.Nach dem Update sollen die Apps beim Exportieren auf AES-128 setzen.
