News tagged ‘beta’
The week has nearly come to an end, so looks like I have to tell you about top stories of the past seven days. This time they deal mostly with Apple’s new gadgets and firmware.
A new bug has been recently discovered that allows to disable Find My iPhone feature on devices running iOS 7.0.4 without typing in a password. What that means is that if someone steals your iPhone, you won’t be able to find it. A thief can deactivate the tracking feature within two or three minutes. Take a look at the video below.
The company from Cupertino will release the final version of its iOS 7.1 to the public no sooner than in March. Apart from the new mobile operating system, Apple is expected to unveil the next-generation Apple TV.
The company from Cupertino on Thursday released the fifth OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks beta to developers for testing purposes. Over the past few weeks, Apple has seeded several OS X betas, which means that the final version is nearly ready and the public release will take place soon.
The evad3rs have released an updated evasi0n 7.0.5 that brings the ability to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5. The iOS 7.0.5 was released earlier this week for the some iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models (the GSM + CDMA editions).
Pod2g noted the change on twitter
Hi there! evasi0n 1.0.5 with support for iOS 7.0.5 is up on http://evasi0n.com .
Looks like Apple has found a way to prevent people from jailbreaking their iOS devices. According to iH8sn0w, iOS 7.1 beta 5, released on Tuesday, patches two exploits used to jailbreak Apple’s smartphones and tablets. Keep in mind that the fourth beta patched another vulnerability used by evasi0n7. It appears that beginning from iOS 7.1, it would be impossible to hack your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And that is definitely not good.
Apple on Tuesday released iOS 7.1 beta 5 to registered developers for testing. The release comes just two weeks after the fourth beta, which contained a couple of minor improvements and tweaks.
It’s Sunday again. Like every Sunday, I’d like to share with some of the most important and interesting stories of the last week. Many worth mentioning events took place, so if you think you missed something, don’t waste your time and take a look at our top posts.
Apple on Thursday seeded the fourth OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta to developers. What is interesting is that this release comes just a week after the third OS X beta. Looks like the guys from Cupertino plan to finalize the new version of the operating system for Macs as soon as possible. Well, that good, I guess.

It is Sunday today and I think that you know what that means, huh? It’s time for our traditional top 10 stories of the week. A number of interesting things happened during the past seven days, I must say. But everything in its turn.
Apple has released OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta 3 to developers for testing. As to the improvements, this version looks pretty much the same as the one released about a week ago. Apple asks developers to focus on SMB2, Mail, Messages, Graphics Drivers, VoiceOver, and VPN.
iOS Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has successfully activated the iOS in the Car feature inside the iOS Simulator. iOS in the Car allows an iOS 7 users to connect their iPhones, iPads and iPods to their car’s built-in center console display to use Apple Maps, read Messages, make phone calls, and control music. References to the feature and functionality has actually been tucked into iOS 7 since the very first beta. Apple is expected to launch iOS in the Car system later this year, maybe alongside iOS 7.1. Take a look at the screenshots below:
Apple released iOS 7.1 beta 4 to developers on Tuesday. The new iOS version contains a number of performance improvements and a fix for the message sending issue. As to the other notable enhancements, these are only ‘slide to unlock’ and ‘slide to power off’ texts, which seem to be tweaked a bit.
Looks like it’s Sunday again and that means I have to make a short review of the most interesting events of these days for people who don’t have enough time to read each post we publish during the week.
