Bad News for Jailbreakers: iOS 7.1 Patches Evasi0n7 Jailbreak

4.7-inch iPhone Air concept [video]



A new concept of the new 4.7-inch iPhone Air was released by Sam Beckett. Let's have a look at the designer's idea of the coming iPhone.

The phone is only 8% larger than the existing iPhone 5S, this increase is to accommodate the larger screen. Some extra space could be potentially utilised by reducing the width of the side bezels and by also slimming down the top and bottom of the phone frame too. The depth of the iPhone Air is 7mm, coming in 0.6mm smaller than it's predecessor. This modest reduction in the device depth and larger increase in the width and height could help create a bigger space for the battery and other components.

iPhones Are More Likely to Be Stolen than to Be Broken - ProtectCELL



If you own an iPhone, there’re more chances that someone will steal it from you than that you will have to repair it. This is not a joke. This is what the latest study conducted by ProtectCELL, the firm that has sold over 2 million insurance policies for smartphones and tablets, reveals. The reason for such result is quite simple, I guess: Apple’s smartphone is the world’s best selling handset, so it is in great demand in many countries and so that many people often try to get it in a rather illegal way.
