Latest Jailbreak Tools And Guides
iPhone Dev Team is the most popular team of iOS developers and they’ve provided us with jailbreak tools since the very beginning of the iPhone phenomenon. Their most popular tool is called Redsnowand it has been used to jailbreak our iDevices for almost two years now. With every iOS version released by Apple, an updated version of Redsnow would have also been released in order to provide the jailbreak support. The Redsnow jailbreak process is not complicated.

The guys from Chronic Dev Team have become extremely popular January 2012 when they released the untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 5.0.1 called Absinthe 2.0. At that time Absinthe was the only tool which could jailbreak 5.0.1 running on iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Currently iOS 5.1.1 can be jailbroken with multiple tools, Absinthe 2.0.4 being one of them.

Google powered devices will increase their number while Apple operating system running on smart tablets will slip down to 46 percent.

With the new iPad mini released last year in October, Apple consideredcovering a different market with its lower price.

Intel, Samsung and TSMC, the world’s greatest chip manufacturers are competing over the Apple supplement with A7 chips for the new iPhone 5S. Moreover, this rumor is consolidated by the long-term battle between the two giants, Apple and Samsung. Now, Apple tries to find its missing puzzle pieces for the incoming iPhone 5S somewhere else. The Korean electronic manufacturer is no longer the first option for the Fruit Company.
Apparently, Apple tries to combine three different technologies in developing the well-waited device. Since the processor represents the most important part in building a new device, Apple tries to figure it out a way in which they can get rid completely by Samsung and by the services that this particular manufacturer is offering.
In this respect, it is expected that Samsung will supply 50 percent of the Apple requirements concerning the A7 chip; TSMC will build 40 percent of them while Intel gets the rest of 10 percent.READ MORE
Recently, Apple has been granted a patent for a social network system that has a various number of database-level characteristics to guarantee trustworthy “friend status”, or the manner that users communicate between each other. In other words, Apple’s U.S Patent should not be confused with a full-fledged social network; the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office certified Apple for an extremely efficient method of managing data in a social network service.
Apple provided a system that can ensure consistency between friend records in a highly-scalable database. The main idea in Apple’s invention is related to the fact that the purposes of the social networks is to connect people. When it comes to the way of connecting, Apple states that the initial relationship status between two users is “none”, followed by the second one, called “handshake”, that appears when a contact is initiated and, of course, the third one, which is the “friend state”.
Friend of Foe? The Apple System Helps Users Recognize Them
One majorly powerful feature of this system created by Apple is related to stalking and spamming. The Apple system can describe a stalker count and also a spammer following the friend requests sent, or the number of friend requests denials received by a user.READ MORE

Those two ads, released in February, were called ‘Alive’ and ‘Together’, and both of them concentrate on people using their iPads to get things done. Apple keeps the same idea for the iPhone5 TV spots.
The Ads are fun, simple and easy to understand and remember. In both of them, there are read in a rapid manner, a number of words, carefully chosen, and one of them lingers. While these words are read, on the screen appear many apps that, obviously have a connection with the highlighted word.READ MORE

The Apple Store released a new application named HiddenApps can be utilized for handling a number of the built-in features of iOS, without jailbreaking the device. This application is useful in case you decide to hide the built-in iOS apps that you might not need all the time.
Whoever decides to use HiddenApps must be aware of all the features it offers. As mentioned above, the app is useful when wanting to camouflage useless apps, such as Weather, Newsstand or Passbook, but it also allows you to perform a couple of other actions. You ought to know that, in the application’s main menu, there is a button able to entirely disable iAds. With this button, you can completely remove all iAds from all the applications.
One other thing you are able to do using this new app is to access the hidden Field Test app. This may be used along with a force-quit bug, to exhibit your mobile strength numerically instead of as a set of bars.
The way that these tricks function is far from being difficult to understand, especially if you have been using an iOS device for a while. All you need to do is to tap a button and this application begins installing a different app over-the-air. Due to the fact that the launching is unsuccessful on purpose, you end up deleting the failed installation from your home screen. By removing it, you actually do the intended change.READ MORE
Recently, a former Apple employee revealed the images of the wider iPhone prototype. He suggested the fact that this represents only a project from a wider list of projects established after 2000 within the Fruit Company. The prototype displays 5 inches width and 7 inches height, which suggests more an iPad mini design rather than a former iPhone. In the same time, the device was not slim at all. It showed two inches thickness, which is pretty much if it is compare to the current iPad mini, which is only a quarter of an inch.
Moreover, the early iPhone prototype owned a notable number of ports used mostly for computer rather than on mobile devices. These ports included USB ports, Ethernet port and even a serial port. This is pretty uncommon for a portable smart device with the purpose of making phone calls. In what concerns the hardware part, the processor was not that different to the one that was contained by the first iPhone released in 2007. The ARM chip looks like an alternative for the Samsung’s S3C2410.
The highly debatable Apple Maps app was released in September along with the iOS 6. Since then, the service received many criticisms from users over the world complaining about multiple data errors and the absence of transit options. Japan was one of the most debatable locations where Apple Maps failed to offer accurate results. Now, the service received an update mostly designed for Japan, without being included in an iOS release.
The new service was designed in order to replace the built-in Google Maps app. However, at the beginning, the Apple Maps app received powerful and sharp criticism especially from those users who were accustomed to the famous Google Maps service. In what concerns Japan, the country is known to be pretty hard to navigate through because most streets do not own personal names and houses are not properly numbered.
At the beginning of this year, Apple released the first beta version of iOS 6.1.1 for developer use, which was meant to offer some notable improvements to the Maps app for Japan area, in particular. Since then, Apple continued to offer minor bug fixes and enhancements in what concerns their service and the vast marketplace that is represented by Japan. However, the new iOS released and namely the iOS 6.1.2, did not contain anything substantial related to the mapping service.
