iPad Art: Maleficent

Maleficent iPad Painting

This stunning iPad painting of Maleficent is this week’s featured iPad art piece. It’s the work of Google+ member Franziska Nierath, who shared it to our iPad Art Google+ community.

I saw the Maleficent movie just a few weeks ago with my family, and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It was hard not to love the amazing performance by Angelina Jolie in the title role – and I love this spot-on iPad portrait of the character.

iOS 7.1.2 brings a fix to a well-known security vulnerability related to attachments and the iOS Mail app. Here’s the brief description text for this latest iOS update:

• Improves iBeacon connectivity and stability
• Fixes a bug with data transfer for some 3rd party accessories, including bar code scanners
• Corrects an issue with data protection class of Mail attachments

The update is available to install over the air via the Software Update section in Settings – it’s only about a 28.8 download – and well worth installing just for the security fix.
