As you probably know, Microsoft is working on its own smartwatch. This wearable device, however, will differ greatly from the rivals' products. According to a well-known Windows blogger Paul Thurrott, Microsoft's smartwatch is actually a cross-platform fitness band.

The guys from Cupertino have recently released a new iPhone 5s ad. This ad is a part of Apple’s “Powerful” series and it is called “Parenthood”.

Apart from the rest, the “Parenthood” ad is the first ad, in which we may see the first hardware and software solutions related to Apple’s “smart home” platform as well as the upcoming HomeKit and HealthKit apps. The ad is available below, take a look.
UPDATE: Works on iOS 7.1.2 as well.
The Pangu team has updated iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak utility to version 1.1.0. They added support for Mac OS X and English version, fixed several bugs (including boot loop bug) and removed the ability to install pirate appstore (PPSync) from English version. Unfortunately to jailbreak community they also used another new exploit instead of i0n1c's one used in v.1.0. This is no good, since Apple might both in iOS 8 or even iOS 7.1.2.

Most of the articles this week deal with untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 and Apple’s upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone 6.

The mass-production of both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models will start in July.
According to the latest rumors, Apple will soon stop the development of Aperture and iPhoto and replace them with Photos app for OS X. The app will boast of deep integration with iCloud and contain a number of features from Aperture and iPhoto. However, the lack of such app as Aperture will be a disappointment for those who got used to editing images with the help of this program.
According to the latest rumors, Apple won’t seed iOS 8 Beta 3 to developers for testing until July 8th. As you probably know, the guys from Cupertino are used to seeding new major betas once in two or three weeks. Keeping in mind the fact that the second iOS 8 beta was released last week, we may assume that the third pre-release version of Apple’s mobile operating system will be unveiled at the beginning of July.
