Most of the articles this week deal with the new iPad models that are expected to be unveiled either next week or in April.

A developer nicknamed 0xnever has announced on Twitter that he will soon release an untethered jailbreak of iOS 10.3, which is currently being tested by developers and public testers.

Looks like there are many vulnerabilities in the latest iOS version that can be used to hack it.
Apple has released the seventh beta of iOS 10.3 to developers and public testers. The release took place just three days after the release of the previous beta. This is rather strange as typically Apple seeds new builds once a week. Such an early release of the seventh beta may mean that Apple has found a serious security issue affecting the firmware and decided to fix it as soon as possible.
According to the latest report from Sensor Tower, iOS 11 may stop supporting about 200,000 32-bit apps that aren’t yet updated with the support for 64-bit processors.

Apple has released the sixth beta of iOS 10.3 to developers and the members of the public beta testing program. The release took place on Monday, less than a week after the release of the fifth beta.

According to the latest report shared by MacRumors, Apple may unveil several new products between March 20 and March 24. The reporters cite anonymous supply chain insiders.

According to the latest report from reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the demand for the upcoming Galaxy S8 won't be as strong as the demand for the Galaxy S7 one year ago. As for the reasons for weak demand, they include lack of selling points and customers' anticipation for the iPhone 8.
According to the latest report from the Korea Economic Daily, Samsung will add the support for facial recognition to the Galaxy S8. The main reasons for adding this feature are speed and readability of the iris scanner that may not be comfortable for all users.

Microsoft will start the rollout of the long-awaited Windows 10 Creators Update on April 11.

According to the latest report from IHS Markit analyst Wayne Lam, the next-generation premium iPhone will not get a curved OLED display.

The report is based on analysis of supply chain, so it’s actually quite trustworthy.
