Luca Todesco has successfully jailbroken iOS 10. Below you can take a look at the video showing the process of jailbreak as well as the iPad running the latest iOS 10 beta and Cydia. The tool used to hack the device is called yaluX and is compatible with 64-bit devices i.e. those with the A7 processor or newer on board.
According to the latest report from reliable insiders, Apple has increased order volumes for production of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus components ahead of the launch of the devices later this month. As noted by usually reliable DigiTimes reporters, Apple boosted order volumes by 10%. This means that the company still thinks that new handsets will be popular among the customers. The analysts, however, expect lower iPhone 7 shipments compared to those of the iPhone 6s last year.
According to leaked GeekBench results, the long-awaited iPhone 7 will be approximately 35% faster than its predecessor, the iPhone 6s. Below you can take a look at the screenshot showing the score for the device with a model identifier iPhone9,3, which is allegedly one of the iPhone 7 versions. The device scored 3379 points in single-core and 5495 points in multi-core tests.
According to the information accidentally found in one of the interviews with Apple CEO Tim Cook, the iPhone 7 may support the Apple Pencil functionality. Adding the support for stylus to the iPhone, especially the 5.5-inch model, makes sense for those users who use their phones for messaging, creating handwritten notes, and possibly drawing. The rumor is rather sketchy, so keep in mind nobody has officially confirmed the compatibility of the Apple Pencil with the new iPhone.
It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days.
If you are curious about how the new iPhone 7 in glossy ‘Piano Black’ color may look like, I think you should check out the renders below. The images are based on latest rumors and the report from KGI Securities. They have been created and shared online by Applearab.com.
Several new rumors about the next-generation iPhone have appeared on the Internet. According to the latest report from usually reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next-generation iPhone will feature a processor with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz. Apart from that, the 4.7-inch device will get 2GB of RAM and the larger 5.5-inch will get 3GB.
A new video has recently appeared on the Internet showing some of the components for the rumored Apple Watch 2 that is expected to be officially unveiled later this year. The list of leaked parts includes a screen, touch screen digitizer, Force Touch gasket, and the battery. This is probably the first large leak of the component for the second-generation wearable device.
According to a new leaked image showing the retail packaging for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, the device may come with new “AirPods Wireless Earphones”. First rumors about Apple’s plans to ditch the traditional headphone jack appeared on the Internet this spring, but so far, nobody could tell for sure if the company was planning to ship new accessories with phones or sell them separately. Now it appears that the wireless headphones will be included in the iPhone 7 Plus package, whereas the smaller handset will be sold with EarPods and a special adapter. However, it should be noted that these are only rumors and suggestions.
According to the latest report from usually reliable DigiTimes reporters, the 2017 iPhone may be equipped with an iris scanner manufactured by Xintec. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) affiliate is expected to get orders for mass production of special iris-recognition chips in the fourth quarter of 2016 or a bit later.
According to the image posted on Twitter, the base model of the iPhone 7 will feature 32GB of storage. This means that starting this year, buying an entry-level model will actually make sense as the user will not necessarily run out of storage in the first two weeks of using the smartphone.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone will come in a new color, namely, Gloss Black. The shade is similar to the color the Mac Pro has. Earlier this year, first rumors about the device have appeared on the Internet suggesting that Apple may be planning to discontinue the Space Gray iPhone and introduce a new shade.
Another confirmation of Apple’s plans to release the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as well as three new Apple Watch models and wireless headphones called the AirPods has appeared online. This time it is the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) certification document that is required for Apple to sell new products in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.
Apple has released new pre-release versions of macOS Sierra to developers and the members of the public beta testing program. The build number is 16A313a. The latest update contains a number of stability, security, and performance enhancements.
