It is Sunday today, so I guess it's time to talk about the most popular posts of the last couple of days. Let's not waste time and start discussing interesting stories right now.
Most of the articles this week deal with the next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, iOS jailbreak and the latest versions of iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and tvOS.
A well-known hacker Luca Todesco who has successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, and the yet to be released publicly iOS 9.3.3 beta, has recently showed the untethered browser jailbreak of iOS 9.3.2. To hack an Apple-branded device, the developer used Apple’s native browser Safari, which, as it turns out, is quite vulnerable to such threats.
The video below depicts the sixth-generation iPod touch running iOS 9.3.2 and the process of browser-based jailbreak. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that Todesco will release a public tool for jailbreak. According to the hacker, he’s mostly interested in research, not actual hacking of iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units running the latest firmware versions.
Apple’s iPhone 6s and Samsung’s Galaxy S7 have been recently compared in an ultimate drop test video. The people behind this video have used professional tools to test the durability of both flagship devices and found out that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s is actually more durable that the device manufactured by the South Korean vendor. The reason for this is quite obvious: iPhone’s back panel is made of aluminum, which is stronger than the glass panel of the Galaxy S7, apart from that, the device features a better glass that makes it possible for it to survive several front drops in a row.
Earlier this month, Apple has released a new Siri commercial called “Thank You Speech” starring Neil Patrick Harris. In the short ad, the actor used Siri to read a note stored on his iPhone while standing in front of the mirror with a brush.
Today, a new humorous clip has been spotted on YouTube that shows us how Apple’s virtual assistant really copes with the task described above. You can take a look at the video shared by a YouTuber Jimber Jam below.
Several new images showing what appears to be a dual lens camera module and the 256GB flash storage for the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus have been recently spotted on the Chinese social network Weibo. It is currently unknown whether the leaked photos are legitimate, but if so, they may prove the rumors about a completely new iPhone featuring an improved photo sensor and larger flash storage to store images and videos shot on the new camera.
It’s been a long time since I shared ridiculous or funny videos somehow connected with Apple or its products with you, so I decided to fix this tiny problem. Below you can find a short clip showing a third generation iPhone cut in two pieces.
The video of the process is available on a YouTube channel called “Cut in Half”, so I guess the iPhone 3GS is not the first thing these experts, so to say, have ruined. If you’re interested in details, to kill the iPhone people behind this clip have used an OMAX waterjet, which is a powerful tool capable of cutting all kinds of materials.
What do you think about the video? Leave your comments below this short post.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days.
Since the release of the next-generation iPhone is becoming closer, more and more rumors about the device appear online. Below you can find the information about the design peculiarities and possible tech specs of the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apart from that, there’re some posts that deal with iPhone sales, Apple’s market capitalization and Apple Music.
Apple has just released a new Apple Music commercial starring Taylor Swift. The ad is called “Dance Like No One's Watching”, it is available on Apple’s official YouTube channel and in this short post.
If you’re interested in how the iPhone 7 might look like, you will surely like the latest video shared by uSwitch and OnLeaks. This short clip is based on the most recent leaks of CAD drawings and offers a 360 degree look at the mockups of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Both handsets are expected to be unveiled in September and feature some noticeable design changes.
The video proves earlier rumors that suggest Apple will ditch the headphone jack and redesign the antenna bands of the iPhone. Apart from that, we can see the rumored dual camera on the larger model. Finally, the iPhone 7 Plus has a Smart Connector.
According to the latest report from the Economic Times, Foxconn is planning to build a new $10 billion factory in India. The manufacturing facility will be located in the Maharashtra state and specialize in production of Apple devices. Foxconn is reportedly looking for 1,200 acres of land to build the factory. Sources also claim that the tech giant representatives have nearly reached agreement with local authorities, so the start of construction may take place pretty soon.
Apple has just released a new iPhone 6s commercial entitled "Thank You Speech". The new ad stars Neil Patrick Harris and highlights such iPhone feature as always-on Siri. As usual, the commercial is available below and on Apple’s official YouTube channel, so if you have time, I recommend you to take a look at the humorous clip.
In the ad, Harris asks Apple’s virtual assistant to open his note called “Thank you speech” while standing in front of a mirror with a brush.
Today’s ad is not the first one and definitely not the last one from those promoting always-on hands-free Siri. The first suchlike commercial called "Hey Siri" was released in December.
It is Sunday today, so looks like it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. Let’s not waste time and take a look at the articles worth your attention.
As it was already mentioned on our website, back in April Apple released an updated 12-inch MacBook with improved processor, SSD, battery and a new Rose Gold color option. Nearly a month after the release, AppleInsider reporters have decided to test the 2015 and 2016 models side by side and find out whether the new laptop is worth upgrading to for 2015 MacBook owners. The results of the test were rather surprising.
A new aerial video showing progress on the construction site of Apple’s new headquarters has recently appeared on the Internet. The short clip reveals how fast the campus continues to take shape. As usual, the flyover video is available either below, or on YouTube, so you can take a look and let me know what you think about the clip right now.
As shown in the video, there’re some new cranes working on the main structure. Apart from that, the work on the roof and other buildings continues at its usual pace. Some new solar panels and new structures have appeared on the main ring over the last couple of weeks.
Apple is expected to finish the work on its “spaceship” campus by the end of this year. The new headquarters will become one of the most eco-friendly and innovative buildings in the world.
Apple has just released a new “Shot on iPhone” commercial entitled “Mother's Day”. As you can understand from the name, the short video is devoted to the Mother's Day that people in many countries celebrate on Sunday, May 8th this year.
The most recent commercial highlighting the built-in iPhone camera and its capabilities is available below and on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
