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.

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.
