When the time comes, will you keep your jailbreak, or update to iOS 10?

By Anthony Bouchard on Aug 1, 2016

Pangu released the first jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 last week, following a huge lull in the jailbreak community that left many with lost hope and the decision to just rock a stock device from here on out.

Nevertheless, those who love jailbreaking have already jailbroken their devices again, despite a lot of issues that were reported about the new jailbreak.

So now that a week has passed, what will you do – keep it, or update? Read More

The jailbreak for iOS 9.2-9.3.3 has been out since last weekend, but it wasn’t until Friday that Pangu got to launching an English version of the once Chinese-only jailbreak tool.

As we know many of you were holding out for an English jailbreak and for a few updates to the tool for stability, we’re curious about whether or not you’ll be making the jump now that the English tool is out. Read More

Apple announced iOS 10 yesterday at the company’s WWDC 2016 Keynote and awed the audience with some pretty neat new features.

Of course, the battle continues for those who want more control over their devices, and because of that, we want to know whether you’re going to be updating to iOS 10 this Fall, or if you’ll be keeping your iOS device(s) jailbroken on iOS 9 or earlier. Read More


Poll: have you updated to iOS 9.3?

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 22, 2016

Poll: Will you keep your jailbreak or update to iOS 9.3?

By Anthony Bouchard on Jan 13, 2016

Just this week, Apple surprised us all with a major revision to iOS going into its first beta: iOS 9.3. The reason for the surprise? Apple also has a beta period running for iOS 9.2.1, which still hasn’t been released to the public just yet. The new iOS beta was also followed by watchOS 2.2, tvOS 9.2, and OS X 10.11.4.

Like previously noted, this is no minor update, but a major revision to iOS. It comes with a variety of major new features, including the flagship feature Night Shift, which is a lot like the popular f.lux extension that changes the color temperature of your display after certain hours to work with your circadian rhythm to help you sleep better, the ability to pair multiple Apple Watches, new ways for developers to update to new betas, app improvements, and more.

But for those loyal to jailbreaking, is iOS 9.3 enough to lure you away from the freedom to do whatever you want with your iOS device? Read More


Poll: should iPhone 7 be thinner or have a longer-lasting battery?

By Christian Zibreg on Jan 11, 2016

There has been lot of talk lately about Apple’s relentless pursue of engineering ever-thinner iPhones. A next-generation iPhone, for example, is said to be iPod touch-thin. As you know, the iPod touch actually has a poorer battery life than any iPhone model simply because it doesn’t have the space for an iPhone-grade battery.

This is prompting some people to wonder if the iPhone 7 should just be as thick as the current iPhone 6s, or even a bit thicker, if that meant boosting its battery capacity for an improved run time.

This poll seeks to figure out if you’d be willing to trade thinness for battery life, or vice versa. So, would you prefer the iPhone 7 to be thinner or have a longer battery life? Read More

By Sébastien Page on Dec 31, 2015

With only a few hours left in 2015, we’d like to ask you to take a few seconds to take our poll and vote for your favorite Apple product of the year.

Poll: do you still listen to Beats 1?

By Sébastien Page on Dec 9, 2015

Beats 1 launched on Apple Music nearly six months ago to much fanfare, but today, the service doesn’t seem to garner as much interest as it first did back in June. I myself listened to Beats 1 a bit, but the novelty quickly wore off, and the multiple genres played all days just didn’t sit well with my specific tastes in music.

I know I haven’t listened to Beats 1 in weeks, possibly months, and I am curious to see if more people feel the same way as I do, hence this poll. Read More


As Mac app will be revamped soon, Twitter starts rolling out polls in tweets

By Christian Zibreg on Oct 21, 2015

Twitter today said that it’ll be rolling out the ability to embed custom polls in tweets to all users over the next few days.

Originally tested with a small subset of its user base, polls in tweets will permit everyone to interact with their followers and get the public’s opinion on just about anything by embedding customized polls in tweets.

In addition, Twitter’s Mac app will be getting a thorough revamp soon with a new dark mode alongside a bunch of new features borrowed from the mobile edition of the software, including in-line Vine and video playback, photos in Direct Messages and in-line replies and much more. Read More


Poll: What’s your favorite thing about the iPhone 6s?

By Jeff Benjamin on Sep 27, 2015

Now that the iPhone 6s has been here for a few days and we’ve been able to at least partly digest its presence, it’s time to tell us about your favorite new feature. Is it the new rose gold color? How about 2GB of RAM? Or maybe you think 3D Touch widely exceeds expectations?

We have our favorites, now it’s time to share yours. Vote in our poll, and let your opinion be heard. Read More


Poll: are you planning on buying iPad Pro?

By Christian Zibreg on Sep 15, 2015

Apple’s new iPad Pro with its epic 12.9-inch display, super smooth performance courtesy of Apple’s third-generation 64-bit ‘A9X’ microchip, four speaker audio, enhanced multitouch technology with lag-free Apple Pencil performance—to name but a few of its headline features—doesn’t file as the most attractive, powerful iOS device but also the priciest yet.

Starting at $799 for the entry level Wi-Fi-only 32 GB model and going all the way up to a whopping $1,079 for the flagship Wi-Fi + Cellular edition with 128 GB of storage, the iPad Pro will essentially compete with Apple’s own MacBook Air and Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet with a similar price level.

It won’t be available until November and launch quantity will be limited, which doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start saving now for the device, quite the contrary. But the big question is, will you buy an iPad Pro? Read More

By Christian Zibreg on Aug 10, 2015

Apple has reportedly scheduled a media event for Wednesday, September 9, to announce not just new iPhones but other product refreshes, too. Well-connected John Paczkowski, Managing Editor for BuzzFeed San Francisco, has it on good authority that the press conference will serve as a launchpad for next-generation iPhones and iPads.

Poll: will you continue using Apple Music past the trial period?

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 29, 2015

Apple Music has been available for a little more than a month now and the service already has dozens, if not hundreds of problems to complain about which have earned it mixed reviews from the press.

Apple Music’s biggest advantage, its tight integration with the rest of the Apple ecosystem, is being erased for some amid a flurry of issues, ranging from disappearing music, issues with DRM, user interface inconsistencies and poor implementation in iTunes, to mention just a few.

You’ve heard the horror stories and have hopefully played long enough with Apple Music in order to make an informed decision as to whether or not you’ll continue using it once the free three-month trial expires. Read More
