It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s take a look at them right now.
Earlier this week, rumors appeared on the Internet suggesting that the TaiG Jailbreak Team would release a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 within few days.

The risk of turning your fully functional device into a brick has once again risen.
I have got some bad news for all the users of jailbroken iPhone, iPad and compatible iPod touch models. The guys from Cupertino have recently stopped signing iOS 8.1.2.

That is why I suggest that you should be very careful and make sure you do not update your smartphone, tablet or portable media player to the latest version of iOS.
Just like it was expected, Apple has patched the vulnerabilities used by the latest version of the TaiG jailbreaking utility to hack iPhones, iPads and compatible iPod touch models running iOS 8 or higher. This means that if you are using a jailbroken iOS device and don’t want to lose your jailbreak, you should stay away from the recently-released iOS 8.1.3. If you want to have a bit faster device with a bunch of stability improvements and bugfixes, you need to sacrifice your jailbreak.
