As it was reported earlier this month, the Apple News app introduced with the release of iOS 9 is currently available only in the USA. Moreover, because of governmental demands, Apple is blocking access to the application in a number of regions, for example, in China.
Even though the Apple News app is currently not available in most countries, there’s a way to start using it right now. All you need to have is a compatible jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 9 or higher.
According to the latest report from Other World Computing (OWC), the recently-introduced 27-inch Retina 5K iMac supports up to 64GB of RAM. Unlike the smaller 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMac, which uses soldered RAM that can be upgraded only by Apple on customer’s demand before the purchase, the larger model gives the owner an opportunity to upgrade the maximum RAM capacity offered by Apple by two times using modules of up to 16GB per one slot. This makes the 27-inch iMac a worth-purchasing device for all those who use computer for image and video editing and other things that require much RAM and powerful processor.
I’ve got some good news for those who plan to jailbreak their compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units running iOS 9. The Pangu team has just released untethered jailbreak of iOS 9.

In case you don’t know, China is a very reserved country with lots of popular media resources blocked or unavailable for users.
