Another week, another steady flow of new tweaks. We’re still waiting for that one tweak that could potentially take the crown of best tweak of the year, but in the meantime, we’ll remain grateful for what we have.
Slightly off topic, if you haven’t yet, you should listen to this week’s episode of Let’s Talk Jailbreak where I talk to Kevin Bradley (aka nitoTV) about the history of Apple TV jailbreaking. Read More

The reviews are in for Apple’s iPad Pro, which went on sale earlier this morning ahead of its retail launch later this week.
So, what’s this device good for? Is it simply a jumbo-sized iPad in the same sense as the iPad was called just an oversized iPhone?
Does the significant screen size increase bring any tangible benefits to your mobile computing beyond just a bigger canvas for your apps?
What about the Apple Pencil and Apple’s pricey keyboard cover, are these optional add-ons or essential accessories? Answers to these questions differ from one reviewer to another. Here’s our roundup of the best iPad Pro reviews on the web. Read More

Like every Sunday, we bring the newest jailbreak tweaks directly to you so you don’t have to spend time scrolling down Cydia looking for what’s new. Everything’s here in one convenient list for you to peruse.
This week wasn’t very eventful on the jailbreak tweaks front, with a number of releases that definitely won’t shake the community. Still, we’re grateful for all these developers pushing new tweaks and allowing us to do much more with our iPhones than Apple intends us to. Read More

Now that Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.0.2, any chance to downgrade to that firmware version has gone down the drain, so we sure hope you did what you had to do when it was still possible to do it.
This week saw once again a solid amount of jailbreak tweak releases. We’re still waiting for “the” tweak for iOS 9, but until then, all these smaller releases will do just fine.
In this post, we list all the tweaks that were released this week on Cydia. Check them out, and tell us which ones are your favorites. Read More

With the release of iOS 9.1 this week, Apple officially put an end to the short life of the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9. It doesn’t mean we won’t see another jailbreak from the team of hackers, but for the time being, we don’t have many options: either stay on iOS 9.0.2 and keep your jailbreak, or update to iOS 9.1 and lose your jailbreak.
Despite that, developers have been hard at work pushing updates to their tweaks or releasing new tweaks in Cydia. Like every Sunday, we bring you all these new tweaks in one condensed post for you to peruse. Read More

Talk about timing! As we were discussing the next best thing after jailbreaking on the last episode of Let’s Talk Jailbreak, Pangu Team came out once again out of nowhere to surprise us with a release of their own. It seems the jailbreak drought is over and we can officially open the floodgates again. Read More

Just when you thought the jailbreak community was being hit by a tweaks drought, developers come out of nowhere to prove me wrong. For instance, jailbreak developer Creatix is responsible for the launch of no less than four tweaks this past week, and although they won’t revolutionize the way you use your iPhone, they certainly will make your life a bit easier.
Kudos to all these devs who are still releasing new tweaks. You guys keep up the good work! Read More

I’ve been doing these weekly jailbreak tweaks roundups for several months now, and it seems to me this is the most uneventful one to date. Not only there isn’t much new on Cydia, but what’s new isn’t that groundbreaking either. Is it the beginning of a tweaks drought? Read More

The iPhone 6s review embargo lifted this morning, and as is always the case, many outlets immediately published their reviews. Those reviewing the new iPhone 6s have been able to use the new digs for almost two weeks, which is plenty of time to form an accurate opinion.
The consensus? The iPhone 6s is a performance beast, and features amazing camera quality. But what stood out to me most about nearly all of the reviews were the thoughts on 3D Touch. In a nearly unanimous chorus, reviewers praised the iPhone 6s’ flagship feature, which allows users to press on the screen to access new menus and features. Read More

On the eve of the release of iOS 9, we can’t help but feel concerned about the future of jailbreaking. Will rootless make this an impossible thing? Is there such thing as impossible when talking about software though? We’ve seen encouraging signs from iH8sn0w this week, but only time will tell if this something that will actually happen, especially in regards to new devices being shipped.
In the meantime, let’s enjoy what we have now, as there is a number of interesting tweaks that were released this past week. Read More

That’s all, folks. Apple’s highly anticipated ‘Hey Siri’ event has come and gone. All announcements have been made, all products have been unveiled, and we finally got a glimpse of long-rumored, top secret Apple projects like the super-sized iPad Pro and the new Apple TV.
A lot has happened in the last several hours, and we understand it can be difficult to keep track of everything throughout the day. So as usual, we’ve put together an awesome roundup of everything important you need to know from today’s event and subsequent reports. Read More

We’re just days away from Apple unveiling new iOS devices and likely providing an official launch date for iOS 9. With new software come new challenges, and of course the continuation of the cat and mouse game. If rumors hold true, a jailbreak for iOS 9 might never happen. We shall see, I guess. In the meantime, let’s enjoy what we have now. Read More

As it has done for the past few years, Apple is gearing up for a major media event this month. In late August, the company sent out invitations for an event taking place on Wednesday, September 9, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
The teaser tagline on the invite reads “Hey Siri, give us a hint,” but otherwise, Apple has been silent regarding its plans for the keynote. Never fear, though, as months of rumors, reports and component leaks have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect. Read More

Another interesting week for the jailbreak community. Despite the reports of thousands of iCloud account being compromised by some shady jailbreak tweaks installed from some shady repos you’ve probably never heard of, we’ve seen some good tweaks being released in Cydia.
In case you don’t want to scroll through dozens and dozens of packages, we round up all the new jailbreak tweaks that appeared this week on Cydia. Read More

As I am preparing this roundup of new jailbreak apps and tweaks, I realize that what I’m actually doing is taking the pulse of the jailbreak community. Some weeks it’s slow. Some weeks it beats fast. This roundup is very much a way to not only see what’s new, but also how healthy the community is. Right now it’s doing pretty good! Read More

Apple announced its financial results for its fiscal third quarter of 2015 this afternoon, and the numbers are solid. The company sold 47.5 million iPhones and earned $49.6 billion in revenue, breaking June quarter records and beating Wall Street expectations.
We just finished up the conference call, where Tim Cook and other executives discussed Apple’s performance over the three-month period, and offered up some insights into its future. And as usual, we’ve rounded up the 15 most interesting points from the call below. Read More

It seems that the latest iOS 8.4 jailbreak has reinvigorated developers and drove them to update and release new tweaks in masses. This week is one of the most busy on in terms of releases that we’ve seen in a while, and we’re not complaining. Quite the contrary! Read More
By Jeff Benjamin on Jun 30, 2015
To state that today has been busy would be an egregious understatement. Actually, the last two weeks have been downright insane with releases.
As you’re likely aware of by now, Apple dropped iOS 8.4 today with the new Apple Music service. This has proved to wildly popular, and many, including yours truly, didn’t hesitate to ditch the iOS 8.3 jailbreak for iOS 8.4. I personally did so knowing that the likelihood of an iOS 8.4 jailbreak was very high given the timing.
Well, not a few hours after 8.4 went live and everyone was enjoying the new Beats 1 radio station, news began to spread that a jailbreak was released. That, as it turns out, was true. The rest, as they say, is history.
Here’s our full roundup of the iOS 8.4 jailbreak. As we did with iSO 8.3, anything related to this firmware from a jailbreak perspective will be contained in this post. Read More

In what seems to be the most uneventful week we’ve had in a long time, we saw the release of only a handful of tweaks, and nothing to really call home about.
Columba was the talk of the town, but those who tried it quickly came to the conclusion it doesn’t hold a candle to biteSMS, a tweak it claims to be a replacement for.
Browsing through the new jailbreak apps and tweaks of this week won’t take you long… Read More
