The guys from Cupertino have recently released three new Safari beta-versions, namely, Safari 8.0.1, Safari 7.1.1 and Safari 6.2.1 to developers for testing. These betas are designed to work on different OS X versions and contain a wide number of bug fixes and security improvements.
At the annual two-day Mobile Pwn2Own conference held earlier this week by HP, several groups of developers managed to find a number of bugs in iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms and successfully hacked Apple's iPhone 5s, Samsung's Galaxy S5, Google's Nexus 5, Microsoft's Nokia Lumia 1520 and Amazon's Fire Phone. What I find interesting is that the hackers were able to get full control over all of the handsets except for one. You will never guess, which device turned out to be the most reliable.
According to what can be found on the App Store support page for developers, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system is currently installed on 56% of compatible devices. Over the past month, the adoption rate has increased 8% and that is an impressive result, I must say. In case you don't know, Apple made the eighth version of iOS available for users worldwide seven and a half weeks ago.
Apple has recently released a new beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 to developers for testing. The release comes just one week after the release of the previous OS X 10.10.1 beta, which had a build number 14B17 and contained a wide number of stability improvements and bug fixes.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, a relatively wide number of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners have encountered an issue that causes constant crashes and restarts of their devices. After such crashes, the smartphones get stuck in a boot loop and it takes much time to bring them back to normal functioning. What is interesting about this particular glich is that it affects primarily the iPhones with 128GB of storage on board and those that have their storage full or nearly full.
Apart from seeding the new beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, the guys from Cupertino on Monday released iOS 8.1.1 to developers for testing. The update comes two weeks after the official release of iOS 8.1, which contained the support of the recently-launched mobile payments service called Apple Pay as well as some bug fixes and stability improvements.
Nearly three weeks after the release of the long-anticipated OS X Yosemite, which contained a wide number of design tweaks, new features and deeper integration with iOS 8, Apple on Monday seeded a new OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite beta to developers for testing.
According to a number of complaints that can be found on Apple's Support Communities forum, a number of OS X Yosemite users have encountered some issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. The Wi-Fi connections are extremely slow or, in some cases, they disconnect within few minutes of work. It should be noted, however, that the number of users that have reported Wi-Fi issues is relatively small. Nevertheless, I believe the guys from Cupertino should pay attention to the complaints and fix the bug inside of the recently-released OS X Yosemite as soon as possible.
Saurik has just released an update to Cydia that brings us one step closer to a stable jailbreak.
Cydia 1.1.14 no longer causes your device to lock up while booting on iOS 8 when you use a passcode. If you have installed unsupported modifications you may want to restore and jailbreak again, as those modifications are not supported.
Greg Joswiak, Apple's VP of iPhone marketing, earlier today had an interview with Re/code reporters Ina Fried and Walt Mossberg. During this interview, Apple representative apologized for the iOS 8.0.1 bug that made it impossible for many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users to access Touch ID and cellular service on their smartphones. Joswiak claimed that a problem with iOS 8.0.1 was caused by the software distribution and not by the flaw in the operating system as it was believed earlier. Anyway, it was a terrible mistake, so I guess the guys from Cupertino should find out whose fault was that.
The PanguTeam has just released an update for their utility for untethered jailbreak of iOS 8 - 8.1. According to what the hackers write, this update contains important improvements and bug fixes for Cydia, Mobile Substrate, iMessage and Safari. Those who had problems with these apps or those who waited for the stable version of Pangu8 can now upgrade to iOS 8.1 and jailbreak their devices with no fear at all. Everything will work fine, the developers claim.
The PanguTeam on Saturday released an important update on the status of its jailbreak utility for iOS 8 - 8.1. As you probably know, earlier this week, the hackers released a new version of untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1. It should be noted, however, that this version turned out to be very unstable and was available only for Windows users, that is why the PaunguTeam decided to pull the update back and make it available only for jailbreak developers.
According to the latest reports from a wide number of iPhone 6 Plus users that can be found on Apple's Support Communities forum, the recently-released handset is quite glitchy. People claim that quite often the 5.5-inch smartphone crashes or reboots unexpectedly. As to the reason of such system crashes, it remains unknown. Many things point to the bug in the program code of iOS 8, however, it is unclear why only the larger iPhones are affected by this bug. Some experts believe something is wrong with the hardware. In any case, the guys from Cupertino are already aware of the problem and currently working on an effective solution.
The team behind the Pangu untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1-7.1.2 has released a Pangu8 untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows and at this time Cydia and Mobile Substrate are not working.
