The English version of the Pangu jailbreak tool is out, so you may want to find out how to hack your 64-bit iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3 using your computer. Please note you will need a valid Apple ID.
We will use a Windows machine as an example, but the instructions for Mac users are rather similar. The main differences are connected with the design and structural peculiarities of these two operating systems.
It is no longer possible to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch without a computer. According to the latest rumor shared by reliable insiders, Apple has recently killed the enterprise certificate used to download and install the Pangu PP app on the devices running iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3 right from the Safari browser. Even though the developers from the Totoa Team who made it possible to jailbreak Apple devices without the Apple ID and computer say they are working on a solution to this problem, it is not very likely they will come up with it soon.
According to the latest report from a research firm iDC, in the third fiscal quarter of 2016, Samsung sold about 77 smartphones compared to only 40.4 million iPhones Apple managed to ship to its customers. As Apple fans wait for the new model to come this September, the South Korean giant sees increase in sales of its Galaxy S7. Samsung’s market share is now equal to 22.4%, while that of Apple is 11.8%. The average iPhone selling price has also decreased from $662 to $595 in 2016.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone called either the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6SE will get a brand new flush Home button with integrated Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Today’s report goes in line with previous rumors suggesting that Apple may be planning to get rid of the physical button to improve the reliability of the iPhone.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes reporters, in 2018, the iPhone will get a brand new biometric scanner. The supply chain insiders are sure that Apple will add an iris scanner to the next-generation iPhone to enhance its security features.
Two new images showing what appears to be a prototype of the second-generation iPad Pro have recently appeared on the Internet. The photos have been reportedly shared by an unidentified Chinese supplier.
As you can see below, the tablet has a model number MH1C2CD/F that is a bit different from the numbers current 12.9-inch iPad Pro models have. Moreover, the unit depicted on today’s photos reveal the storage capacity of only 12GB that is a bit of surprise. However, provided that the photos are legitimate and we see a real iPad unit, we may assume this amount is enough for a prototype device. The device is running the latest iOS 10 beta released to developers earlier this month.
According to the latest report from a German website called apfelpage.de, the next-generation iPhone will be called the iPhone 6SE, not the iPhone 7. This rumor makes sense if we take into account the reports suggesting Apple may be planning to start releasing major updates for the iPhone lineup once in three years, not once in two years. Apart from that, the ‘6SE’ branding suits the next-gen iPhone perfectly, as in terms of design and functionality it is expected to be very similar to the iPhone 6s released in 2015.
It is Sunday today, so I believe we should take a look at the most interesting posts of the last seven days.
Most of the articles this week deal with the next-generation iPhone and its specs. There are also some posts telling about new builds of iOS and OS X released to developers, public testers and all other users worldwide. Finally, there is an article about the new Pangu jailbreak compatible with newer Apple devices.
According to the latest rumor shared by a well-known insider Evan Blass who has been correct in the past, the release of the rumored iPhone 7 and its larger sibling called the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro will take place during the week of September 12th. It is currently unclear whether Blass refers to the date of Apple’s media event devoted to new handsets or the date of their availability for customers in the USA and other countries of launch. Anyway, the information goes in line with previous rumors and reports from reliable insiders.
The Pangu team has released a jailbreak of iOS 9.3.3. Currently, the app for jailbreak is available only in Chinese, but very soon the hackers will release an English version.
According to the latest report from Deutsche Bank researchers, alongside the iPhone 7 Apple will ship a Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter to make older EarPods compatible with the new smartphone. What this means is that the company will not release a brand new pair of headphones for the next-generation iPhone.
According to the latest report from The Information, the launch of the widely-rumored electric vehicle designed and manufactured by Apple may take place in 2021. Earlier this year, rumors appeared on the Internet suggesting the company was planning to start selling its car in 2020. However, when Steve Zadesky, a key figure in the development of the vehicle, left the company in January, Apple faced some difficulties that moved the release date one year ahead.
Apple has released the second public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to those users who have a valid public tester account. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch for iOS 10 and Mac computer for macOS Sierra, you can sign up for Apple’s public beta testing program and try out the new software right now.
Alongside iOS 9.3.3 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, Apple on Monday also seeded new betas of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 to developers for testing purposes. If you have a developer account and a compatible device, you can get the pre-release version of any operating system right now.
Aside from making iOS 9.3.3 available for all users, Apple has just released OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. Just like the firmware for iPhones and iPads, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for Macs is a minor update that brings stability, security and performance enhancements as well as bug fixes. The update is recommended for all users of compatible Mac computers.
