iOS 9.3.3 Has Been Jailbroken [Image]



A well-known hacker and developer Luca Todesco has recently jailbroken the latest version of iOS, iOS 9.3.3. Below you can take a look at the image showing Todesco’s iPod touch running Cydia 1.1.26. This image has been shared on Twitter by the hacker himself.

In case you don’t know, Luca Todesco is a person who demonstrated the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, and iOS 9.3 beta in the past. Unfortunately, there’re currently no publicly available tools for jailbreak.

Stay tuned for more news about iOS jailbreak.

New Leaked Images Show iPhone 7 Back Panel



According to the images shared by two independent sources earlier today, the next-generation iPhone will get a protruding rear camera, possibly with repositioned flash, and four speakers. Moreover, the device is likely to lack the headphone jack and the rumored Smart Connector.

The first set of images was shared by usually-reliable French reporters from Nowhereelse, so I guess what we see is a legitimate part from actual Apple suppliers. The only strange thing is that we don’t see the traditional antenna bands present in all iPhone models.
