iPhone Jailbreak Malware App

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

The malware protection that comes with Apple’s walled-off garden is only so good as long as you stay in that confined space, as otherwise hackers will be able to attack you with malicious programs. Specifically, jailbroken iPhones, which can install any iOS app whether it’s approved by Apple or not, are obviously susceptible to malware attacks, and a Virus Bulletin advisory notice details one such malicious program that has infected at least 75,000 iOS devices to date.

How to revive your iPhone after dropping it into water

The iPhone isn’t waterproof or even water-resistant as some of its Android-based rivals, but that doesn’t mean that dropping it in water means instant death for the handset. As one Macworld writer discovered, the phone can survive such annoying accidents, and there’s always hope it’ll turn back on and function properly just like before being submerged underwater. More →

How To Stop iPhone Tracking

How to stop iPhone apps from tracking your location without you knowing

How to stop iPhone apps from tracking your location without you knowing

Last week, The Wall Street Journal confirmed an earlier report shedding light on the fact that Foursquare’s iPhone app is constantly tracking users’ locations even when the app is completely closed. “Starting today, users who download or update the Foursquare app will automatically let the company track their GPS coordinates any time their phone is powered on,” the report noted. “Foursquare previously required users to give the app permission to turn on location-tracking. Now users must change a setting within the app to opt out.”

Opting out in the Foursquare app solves your problem there, but any other iPhone apps can potentially track your location without your knowledge while it’s closed. Luckily, stopping them from tracking you couldn’t be simpler. More →

For those considering making the jump from Android to the iPhone 6 once it is released — or to any other iPhone, for that matter — the following collection of tips should definitely help ease the transition.

How To Use Facebook Messenger

How to keep using Facebook chat on your iPhone without installing Facebook Messenger

How to keep using Facebook chat on your iPhone without installing Facebook Messenger

Facebook gave users fair warning ahead of a recent change that requires people to install a separate iPhone application if they want to keep using Facebook’s messaging feature on their iPhones, but there is still plenty of outrage. So much so, in fact, that the Facebook Messenger app for iOS now has a 1-star average rating in the App Store out of spite.

But if you would rather not use a dedicated app to chat with your Facebook friends, don’t fret: A simple trick will let you keep using the main Facebook app for the iPhone to send and receive messages. More →
