Pangu releases jailbreak for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3 devices

by Sébastien Page on Jul 24, 2016

The Pangu Team released a jailbreak Sunday morning that is capable of jailbreaking iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 devices. Only compatible with 64-bit devices so far, the jailbreak is of the semi-tether kind, meaning a piece of software must be run on the device every time it is rebooted to be put back in a jailbroken state.

The tool is currently available in Chinese only, but should be available in English soon. Read More

The new Music app in iOS 10: a big bold confusing mess

by Sébastien Page on Jun 23, 2016

Apple Music is a great service, but the confusing and bloated user interface of the application has been criticized since the app was first released about a year ago. So when rumors started popping up that Apple had been working on simplifying the app, many got really excited, myself included.

Yet, when Apple showed off the new Music app on stage at WWDC a little over a week ago, I didn’t see anything simpler or more streamlined about the app. It’s only when I started using iOS 10 beta and the new Music app that my fears were confirmed.

Now that I’ve been playing with the Music app for a few days, I feel I have enough feedback to share a few quick thoughts with you. Don’t worry, it’s not all bad. Read More

 

We wanted better App Store search results, but we got ads instead

by Sébastien Page on Jun 21, 2016

Search in the App Store is something both users and developers have been complaining about for years, because quite frankly, it’s terrible. Unless you know exactly what you’re looking for, you’re more than likely to not find anything really relevant when typing in basic search terms.

With Phil Schiller now in charge of App Stores, we were all hoping for some big changes, and to be fair, there have been. App review times have tremendously improved, for instance. Personally, I was hoping that Apple would finally fix search in the App Store, but instead, the company gave us search ads. Read More

Chinese hacker Min Zheng has showed a demo of Flying JB earlier today, a jailbreak for 32-bit devices running iOS 9.2.1 or lower. The video demo shows off an iPhone 5c going through the jailbreak process as well as Mobile Terminal running on the device once jailbroken.
