Tweaks of the week: is this the beginning of a drought?

By Sébastien Page on Oct 4, 2015

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


iPhone 6s review roundup: 3D Touch a major innovation, amazing cameras, fast performance

By Jeff Benjamin on Sep 22, 2015

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


Aria 2, MeetingDnd, and other jailbreak tweaks to check out

By Sébastien Page on Sep 13, 2015

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


New iPhones, iPads and Apple TV: a roundup of today’s announcements

By Cody Lee on Sep 9, 2015

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


13 tweaks to check out this weekend

By Sébastien Page on Sep 6, 2015

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


What we can expect from Apple’s September 9 event

By Cody Lee on Sep 5, 2015

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

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.

New jailbreak tweaks: what a week that was

By Sébastien Page on Jul 5, 2015

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


The iOS 8.4 jailbreak roundup

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


The jailbreak tweaks of the week

By Sébastien Page on Jun 21, 2015

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

Tweaks of the week: ControlF, QuickUnlock, and more

By Sébastien Page on Jun 14, 2015

Even if news of a jailbreak for iOS 8.3 has been floating around, we shouldn’t yell victory too soon. As far as I’m concerned, I won’t get excited until there is tangible evidence that this is indeed happening. In the meantime, we can all look at we can use right now, namely a bunch of tweaks that have recently been released on Cydia. Read More
