It is Sunday today, so let’s take a look at the most interesting posts of the last couple of days.
Most of the articles this week deal with the new tool for semi-tethered Pangu jailbreak of devices running iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3, rumors about the next-generation iPhone and its specs as well as with the long-anticipated new MacBook Air and Apple Watch 2.
A growing number of those iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users who used the latest version of Pangu jailbreak are reporting that the app gets unauthorized access to their Facebook, PayPal as well as credit and debit account details. While the Pangu team is trustworthy and very unlikely to steal user’s personal data, its Chinese partners who most likely had access to the tool or its ways of distribution might have used it for stealing sensitive data.
The English version of the Pangu jailbreak tool is out, so you may want to find out how to hack your 64-bit iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3 using your computer. Please note you will need a valid Apple ID.
We will use a Windows machine as an example, but the instructions for Mac users are rather similar. The main differences are connected with the design and structural peculiarities of these two operating systems.
A new rumor about the Apple Watch 2 has recently appeared on the Internet. According to this rumor, the wearable device will get a thinner glass that will reduce the overall thickness of the smartwatch. Currently, Apple uses a Glass on Glass (G/G) technology, but a new generation is said to feature a more advanced One Glass Solution (OGS) screen. The rumor comes from an Apple supplier called TPK Holding, so I guess we can believe it.
The Pangu team has released an English version of their semi-tethered jailbreak for iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3. Apart from the support for new language, the new tool is compatible with both Mac, Linux and Windows and includes Cydia Impactor that allows you to sideload the Pangu app onto your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
According to the latest report from a research firm iDC, in the third fiscal quarter of 2016, Samsung sold about 77 smartphones compared to only 40.4 million iPhones Apple managed to ship to its customers. As Apple fans wait for the new model to come this September, the South Korean giant sees increase in sales of its Galaxy S7. Samsung’s market share is now equal to 22.4%, while that of Apple is 11.8%. The average iPhone selling price has also decreased from $662 to $595 in 2016.
Even though first rumors about possible MacBook Air refresh in 2016 appeared on the Internet in June, there haven’t been any updates on the issue since that time. Today, however, a new report has been shared by usually-reliable Taiwanese website DigiTimes suggesting that Apple is still planning to update the MacBook Air lineup and will add a USB Type-C port to the machine. The new standard is becoming more and more popular, so releasing a new MacBook means adding the support for this standard as well.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone called either the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6SE will get a brand new flush Home button with integrated Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Today’s report goes in line with previous rumors suggesting that Apple may be planning to get rid of the physical button to improve the reliability of the iPhone.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes reporters, in 2018, the iPhone will get a brand new biometric scanner. The supply chain insiders are sure that Apple will add an iris scanner to the next-generation iPhone to enhance its security features.
It is Sunday today, so I believe we should take a look at the most interesting posts of the last seven days.
Most of the articles this week deal with the next-generation iPhone and its specs. There are also some posts telling about new builds of iOS and OS X released to developers, public testers and all other users worldwide. Finally, there is an article about the new Pangu jailbreak compatible with newer Apple devices.
According to the latest report from The Information, the launch of the widely-rumored electric vehicle designed and manufactured by Apple may take place in 2021. Earlier this year, rumors appeared on the Internet suggesting the company was planning to start selling its car in 2020. However, when Steve Zadesky, a key figure in the development of the vehicle, left the company in January, Apple faced some difficulties that moved the release date one year ahead.
