It seems like Apple’s China-related controversies aren’t over just yet. It appears that Safari in iOS 13 now sends browsing data to Tencent, a giant Chinese conglomerate that owns the country’s biggest digital platforms, including QQ, WeChat and Qzone. It’s also known for helping the Chinese government keep its iron grip over what citizens can see and interact with on the internet. More »

The group named five board members — including Xapo CEO Wences Casares, Andreessen Horowitz partner...

The Libra keyboard attached to an iPad Pro. | Photo: Sam Byford / The Verge The maker of the Libra keyboard has told multiple Kickstarter backers that it’s “actively communicating” with Brydge regarding a lawsuit filed over the device last week. But Brydge says that isn’t true: it hasn’t actually heard from Libra’s creator, and the Kickstarter campaign hasn’t responded to Brydge’s attempts to reach out.

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Late last week, privacy advocates warned that Apple was sending iOS user data to Chinese company Tencent, an alarming development for anyone who had taken the company’s privacy promises at face value. A note in iOS 13 mentioned that its Safari browser uses Tencent’s Safe Browsing system to help fight malicious webpages — but Tencent may log IP addresses in the process. While this has been true for months or even years, the news casts a harsh light on...

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Fortnite’s black hole hasn’t gone anywhere, and it feels like everyone’s getting weird with it. Twitch itself is even getting in on the oddity: the company’s channel is showing the black hole, and it’s featuring randomly chosen Fortnite streams from around the platform to highlight. The largest Fortnite streamers are having fun, too — many of them have turned watching the hole into an event. Last night, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins tweeted that for enough...

iOS 13's “Fraudulent Website Warning” feature for Safari mobile shares some of your browsing data by default. That’s normally a good thing, since Google takes this data, hashes what you’re attempting to access, and is only able to sort-of match what you were looking for with your IP address. However, Apple is also sending this data to the Chinese company Tencent in some instances, and there’s a little extra cause for concern — but odds are good you’re still fine. More »

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Over the weekend, Facebook ended up doing exactly what it didn’t want to do: openly feud with a presidential candidate on Twitter. The fight began after President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign flooded Facebook with ads spreading misinformation about Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and the Ukraine scandal that has dominated the news cycle over the past few weeks. Now, Democrats are firing back directly at the platforms and their rules, rather than...
