The crucial iPhone 6 jailbreak app you need has just been updated to work on iOS 8.1

Soon after Apple released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8, the Pangu team of Chinese hackers that created untethered jailbreak tools for previous iOS versions released a jailbreak tool for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices, though it lacked Cydia support, which is the main reason users would want to jailbreak their devices in the first place. Luckily, as iDownload Blog reports, Cydia creator Saurik has pushed an update to it to make it compatible with jailbroken iOS 8 devices. More →

This is the next Steve Jobs

Many people still wonder what Steve Jobs would do today if he were still at the helm of Apple, even though Tim Cook has proven time and time again that he can run Apple like nobody else, perhaps even better in some ways than its iconic co-founder and former leader. But people are still fascinated with the genius that pushed Apple’s limits for so many years, and Aaron Sorkin thinks he found the next Jobs for his upcoming retelling of the epic story. More →

This might just be the most amazing thing about the iPad Air 2

The iPad Air 2 is officially available in stores, so it’s not really surprising to see the guys over at iFixit publish their official iPad Air 2 teardown. The slimmer-than-ever iPad Air 2 can be easily torn apart if you’ve got the right tools, but it’s not easy to repair, receiving a 2 out of 10 repaiarability score from the teardown experts. However, iFixit did manage to shed more light on the internal components of the iPad Air 2, many of which have been detailed in previous leaks and reports.

In the process, however, the publication made some interesting discoveries. More →

Mac evolution: From Mac to 5K Retina iMac in a single image

Apple’s most recent OS X desktop, the 27-inch iMac with Retina display is already available for purchase and has been praised in many reviews so far for its amazing display, even though most regular users might not find any actual use for a 5,120 x 2,880 screen just yet. However, to further show how much the Mac evolved in its 30 years, Kent Akgungor posted two overlapping images on Things of Interest that show the original Mac’s display resolution on top of the current Retina iMac’s screen resolution.

Since then, the FBI and others have complained that Apple and Google will be basically helping bad guys get away with bad things thanks to encrypted devices. More →

The first iPad Air 2 and Retina iMac reviews are in and man publications are generally praising Apple’s newest products, although many say that things can still be improved, especially for the tablet.
