The team behind the Pangu untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1-7.1.2 has released a Pangu8 untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows and at this time Cydia and Mobile Substrate are not working.
Here's the translated details via reddit user zsm1703:
Just as Apple announced at its iPad & Mac event last Thursday, iOS 8.1 is now publicly available with new features including Apple Pay, iCloud Photo Library, and additional Continuity features. Apple Pay is available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users for making payments for purchases with the new iPhone rather than a physical credit card in supported retail stores and apps; iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 users will be able to use Apple Pay within supported apps as well. In addition to iOS 8.1, Apple also released version 7.0.1 for third-generation Apple TV boxes.
Today Apple officially announced two new tablets - iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
iPad Air 2, teblet with 9.7" Retina 2048 x 1536 pixels display, is now 18 percent thinner than the first iPad Air (6.1 mm vs 7.5 mm), has brand new A8X processor that is 40 percent faster. iPad Air 2 is also lighter 437g vs 469g for Wifi model. It's also got a brand new camera out back: an 8MP iSight camera (f/2.4 aperture) that does 1080p video, burstmode, panorama shots, and auto HDR (that takes up a bit less space). iPad Air has Touch ID, the Home button-based security system that enables login via fingerprint. With Touch ID, iPad Air 2 also has Apple Pay, albeit enabled for online purchases only. Front-facing camera is also getting improved, and it's now known as the "Facetime HD" camera.
Need to stream Apple’s live event on a Windows machine? Like last time, Apple’s iPad/Mac Oct. 16 press event won’t be streaming on Windows and this time around requires Safari on a Mac, iOS device or an Apple TV. That means that Windows users will have to figure how to get the stream going using the workaround we posted last time.
You’ll need to download VLC player and check back here tomorrow for the final streaming link to complete the instructions:
Apple previously announced that it would be live streaming Thursday’s iPad and Mac event, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the company is pushing out an Apple TV channel to stream the video. It is a bit surprising, however, that the channel is already available at midnight Pacific time. It’s usually much later in the day that it appears.
How fast is iPhone 6 compared to other popular smartphones? PhoneBuff performed a serious of real tests.
Each phone was raced through a series of apps including the camera, photos, web browser, Dictionary.com, Photoshop Touch, Google Earth, Temple Run 2, Fifa 14, Smash Hit, and Angry Birds. The series of apps was then opened for a second time to test the multi-tasking abilities of each device.
Take a look at the results in the video below:
It appears that aside from the financial results in the fourth fiscal quarter, on October 20th, Apple is planning to release iOS 8.1 and launch its long-awaited payments service called Apple Pay. This is what Bank Innovation writes. Another thing, which indicates that the next-gen mobile operating system will indeed come less than in three weeks, is the fact that it has been recently seeded to developers for testing.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the mass production of the Apple Watch may begin in January. Such a rumor has been spotted on a Taiwanese website AppleDaily.
Looks like the guys from Cupertino can’t or don’t want to get rid of the dependence on their main market rival, which is Samsung. According to the latest report from DigiTimes, the South Korean manufacturer will supply Apple with 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch panels for the upcoming iPad models. First shipments will be sent to Apple at the end of this year, so looks like the appropriate deal between tech giants has already been signed.
We all know that the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are incredibly fast and efficient. But how much time does it actually take for the new handsets to boot and how this boot time is different from the time iPhone 5s and earlier models of the smartphone demonstrate? Let’s find out.
On the video below, you may take a look at the full line-up of iPhones taking part in the ultimate boot time test. The rules of this test are incredibly simple: all the handsets should be running the latest firmware version they support and be freshly updated.
It’s Sunday today, that is why I have prepared a short list of the most popular and the most interesting posts of the past seven days for you. If you have time and desire, you may take a look.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have nearly reached the final regulatory approval of the Chinese authorities, which means that the handsets may soon go on sale in China. The purported launch date is October 10th.
Microsoft has recently released two new ads mocking Apple's virtual assistant called Siri. The first is called Lost and describes the ability of Microsoft's virtual assistant to warn users about coming late to important meetings, parties etc. using recent traffic data. The second commercial is called Remind Me and it tells us about Cortana's ability to remind users about the people-related tasks. For example, when the user is talking with somebody on a phone, Cortana can remind to congratulate with this person with birthday (if this person is actually celebrating his or her birthday on that day).
Both ads are available below. You may take a look.
Yesterday I told you that it is possible to bend the iPhone 6 Plus while carrying it in the pocket of pants all the time. Today, a guy named Lou (from Unbox Therapy) decided to prove or refute the rumors and took his own iPhone 6 Plus to the ultimate bend test. As it turned out, it was a bad idea.
According to the latest report from Re/code, the guys from Cupertino are planning to launch their revamped streaming music service with a new branding next year. To be more precise, this will happen during the 2015 Grammy Awards in February. Looks like Apple won’t shut or rename the recently-acquired Beats Music service until that time. A piece of good news for all Beats fans, right?
