It's Sunday today, so looks like it is time to talk about the most interesting stories of the past seven days. Let's begin right now.
Apple on Monday officially announced iOS 8 beta and seeded it to developers. The new operating system for iPhones and iPads can boast of some noticeable improvements and design tweaks.

As you already know, a bunch of new interesting features have been added to Apple's OS X Yosemite 10.10 and iOS 8. Both operating systems were announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, which took place on Monday.

There is no information whether i0n1c will release a public jailbreak. Anyway, It would be logical to wait until iOS 8 is officially released so as to not burn any exploits.
