According to the latest report from M.I.C. Gadget, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to expand the minimum storage of the next-generation iPhone. Instead of using 16GB, Apple is said to equip the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with 32GB of memory. This will make the handsets a bit more expensive, however, the increase in memory will allow users to download and store more files directly in their smartphones. It should be noted, however, that the rumor about new minimum storage option comes from insiders who have reportedly seen the packaging of the would-be devices. Well, that’s not the most reliable source of information, so I guess we should take the aforementioned report with a few pinches of salt.
A well-known hacker saurik has recently released a new tweak called Cydia Impactor.

Cydia Impactor will be helpful for those people, who don’t like syncing their iOS device with computer or those who plan to quickly 'unjailbreak' the smartphone or tablet before selling or giving it away.

Several new images showing something what appears to be a rear shell for the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus have recently appeared on the Internet. Future Supplier blog reporters claim the part is nearly identical in size and shape to the rear shell of the iPhone 6 Plus. Probably the only really noticeable difference is the location of the holes for screws that hold the loud speaker module. Apart from that, “the 6S Plus’ rear housing is stronger”. Looks like the guys from Cupertino did their best to make the smartphone strong enough not to bend in your pocket. Well, that’s what we all expected, right?

As you already know, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8.4.1 beta to developers for testing. Apart from seeding a new version of the mobile operating system, Apple has also made OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 Beta 1 available for developers.

Apple has recently released iOS 8.4.1 beta to developers for testing. The release comes less than a month after the official release of iOS 8.4, which contained a completely redesigned Music app supporting Apple Music as well as some general bug fixes and stability improvements.
Apple Music service works great, however there are numerous disabled albums with E label. Let's find out what's going on and how to enable these albums.
For example new Muse album Drones is anavailable. Metallica great albums Garage Inc, Load, Reload are closed as well. My first guess was that Apple did not negotiate with album owners. The right answer is that some albums (many rock ones) have Explicit raiting, so they are disabled by default. You can change that easily. Here's how:
1. Go to Settings - General - Restrictions - Enable Restrictions. If this is your first time there create a password, or enter previously entered password.
2. Choose Allowed Content and then Music & Podcasts. Enable Explicit content switch.
3. You're done, now all albums are available. You might need to close Music app and run it again. Have fun listening.

According to the latest report from Canaccord Genuity, Apple takes 92% of the entire smartphone market profits with only 20% share of smartphone sales. As noted by the analysts, back in 2007, when the guys from Cupertino introduced the iPhone, two-thirds of the smartphone market profits were taken by Nokia. In 2012, the profits of Apple and Samsung were nearly equal, however, since that time, the situation has changed and now we see that Apple is far more successful that its South Korean rival.
