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. Even though Apple has reportedly patched the vulnerabilities used in the iOS 8.4 jailbreak, looks like the hackers have found something new.
Apple is blocking access to the News app in China. This issue has already been spotted by a number of iPhone and iPad users in this country and a software developer named Larry Salibra. The decision to disable the long-awaited News app introduced in September as a part of iOS 9 in the aforementioned Asian country is probably caused by the strict censorship rules. In case you don’t know, China is a very reserved country with lots of popular media resources blocked or unavailable for users.
Paul Houle, a high school student, has recently claimed that the Apple Watch saved his life. After some exercises, he felt pain in his chest and back and his Apple Watch showed that his heart rate was 145 two hours after the exercises. Because of all these things, the teen decided to go to the local hospital. As it turned out, this saved his life as he had a rather serious injury that may have led to fatal consequences.
Just as we expected, Apple on Wednesday released iOS 9 to public worldwide. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the update should be available in the Settings app under General - Software Update or once you connect your device to iTunes. It should be noted, however, that Apple servers are currently overloaded, so if you don’t see any available updates, you should wait for a while.
According to the latest report from reliable insiders, Apple has recently assigned Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) as the main supplier of the A10 chip, which is expected to be used in the iPhone 7 that will come in 2016. The rumor comes from a rather reliable Asian newspaper China Times, so it’s rather trustworthy. As noted by the same sources, the next-generation iPhone processor will be built using a 16-nanometer technology and InFO architecture. The production of the chip will reportedly start next year in March.
Interesting news regarding iPad Pro internals: an Adobe press release has seemingly revealed that it has 4GB RAM – a doubling of the 2GB in the iPad Air 2.
iPad Pro is great for creative workflows with a high res 12.9″ touch screen display at 2732 x 2048 pixels, A9X chip, and 4GB RAM …
According to the latest report published by the New York Times reporters, Apple is currently working on a new iPad keyboard that may become available for purchase later this year as well as on new metal finishes for the Apple Watch. Keeping in mind that new iPads may be unveiled at the September media event, the rumor about new keyboard compatible with these devices looks quite plausible. As to the new Apple Watch finishes, the latest piece of news corroborates predictions made by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this year. The expert claimed that the Apple Watch Sport may get new gold and rose color options.
As you probably know, Android Wear has recently become available for iPhone users. This means that new wearable devices from various manufacturers with this operating system on board will be compatible with Apple gadgets. This is a piece of good news.
I’ve got some good news for music fans. Apple has just released two new Apple Music ads featuring featuring The Weeknd and John Travolta. Well, actually these are not two separate clips, but a two-part commercial with single theme and message. The ad was first shown to public on Sunday night during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Currently it is available on Apple’s official YouTube channel and below. Take a look and let me know what you think about the commercial.
Earlier this year, a rumor appeared on the Internet suggesting Apple was planning to release a new Apple TV with an A8 chip and a completely redesigned remote control. Last Friday, Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch confirmed the rumor and claimed the new remote will feature motion sensors, physical buttons and a microphone for Apple’s virtual assistant Siri. Apple will also let developers create apps and games for the upcoming set-top-box.
Looks like the next-generation iPhone will indeed feature a Force Touch display. A well-known developer Hamza Sood has recently discovered some code in iOS 9 that proves the guys from Cupertino will add the support of Force Touch to the iPhone 6s. This piece of news has been shared by the developer on Twitter.
Below you may take a look at the screenshot proving what I’ve just written.
I’ve got some good news for all those people who’re waiting for the release of the untethered jailbreak of iOS 8.4.1. Even though the guys from Cupertino have patched the vulnerabilities used for hacking iOS 8.4, it looks like there’re some other that can be utilized for iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak.
According to the post on the Chinese social network called Weibo, the Pangu Team has successfully jailbroken iOS 8.4.1 and showed this at the HackPwn2015 security conference. It should be noted, however, that it is very unlikely that the hackers release a new jailbreaking tool in the near future. You see, the exploits used for iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak may be used to hack iOS 9 as well, so it’s better not to reveal them right now.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple has recently asked Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company to reduce the prices for A9 chips. While the South Korean tech giant has already agreed to cut the prices, TSMC is inclined to refuse. Sources claim this may affect the number of orders for A9 chips the company receives. Looks like Samsung will become the main supplier of 16-nanometer processors for the upcoming iPhone 6s.
According to the results of the research conducted by a firm called Fiksu, we’ll see two new iPhones this fall. To be honest, I’m a bit confused with this piece of news as earlier today a well-known expert claimed that the guys from Cupertino were planning to release three handsets on September 9th, namely, the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 6s Plus and the iPhone 6c with a smaller 4-inch display.
Two other videos showing a leaked part for the upcoming Apple gadget have recently appeared on the Internet. This time we deal with the CAD drawing and the real iPad mini 4 rear panel purportedly manufactured by Apple suppliers. Both videos, which are available below, prove that the next-generation iPad mini will become the thinnest tablet in the lineup and that it will resemble the larger iPad Air in terms of design and shape.
