According to the latest reports from reliable sources, there is a glitch in one of the networks that work with Apple’s new system, which makes the Bank of America customers pay twice for each product they purchase. The good news is that both Bank of America and Apple are aware of the problem and currently working on the solution. All the money the customers have lost so far will be soon refunded.

Saurik Releases iOS 8 Version of Cydia



Saurik has released an iOS 8 compatible version of Cydia for manual download following the release of an untethered Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 - iOS 8.1.

I've given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I've also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I'm on that is about to take off).

Recently the Pangu8 jailbreak was released for Windows only, and without a compatible version of Cydia. Now that the compatible Cydia deb has been released you can download it from here: http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.1.13 ... os-arm.deb.

Apple releases iOS 8.1. What's new?



Just as Apple announced at its iPad & Mac event last Thursday, iOS 8.1 is now publicly available with new features including Apple Pay, iCloud Photo Library, and additional Continuity features. Apple Pay is available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users for making payments for purchases with the new iPhone rather than a physical credit card in supported retail stores and apps; iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 users will be able to use Apple Pay within supported apps as well. In addition to iOS 8.1, Apple also released version 7.0.1 for third-generation Apple TV boxes.

Today Apple officially announced two new tablets - iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.

With Touch ID, iPad Air 2 also has Apple Pay, albeit enabled for online purchases only. Front-facing camera is also getting improved, and it's now known as the "Facetime HD" camera.

It is a bit surprising, however, that the channel is already available at midnight Pacific time. It’s usually much later in the day that it appears.
