It is Sunday today, so you're probably waiting for our traditional roundup of the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let's take a look at them right now.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the A8 chip found inside of Apple's latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is capable of playing 4K video. And that is rather strange, I must admit, as the aforementioned devices have a display resolution of "only" 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080 pixels respectively. The support of ultra high-definition video has been discovered by developers who created a popular Mac app called WALTR.
Apple has recently seeded the first beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 to developers for testing. The release of this version of Apple's operating system for Macs comes just three days after the official public release of OS X 10.10.1 that contained stability and performance improvements as well as some bug fixes.
What is important about the latest beta is that it contains bugs, which cause constant crashes of Google Chrome browser as well as Retina iMac graphics issues. That is why I suggest that you shouldn't upgrade to this version, especially if you plan to install it on your main computer.
Good news for all the users of jailbroken iOS-devices, who don't want to lose their jailbreak after upgrading to iOS 8.1.1. iH8Sn0w and XanderKitteh have recently successfully jailbroken iOS 8.1.1 and posted the video of the process to YouTube. In a short video you may see an iPad running Cydia with untethered jailbreak.

Apart from tools for developers, the new beta-version of Apple's mobile operating system contains several stability improvements. Well, as always.
It is Sunday today, which means I should tell you about the most interesting stories of the past seven days. Let’s take a look at them right now.
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.
