Apple has reportedly reached out to a handful of high profile iPhone and Mac hackers to try and secure their operating systems from exploits that could be used maliciously or for jailbreaking.
Following a ritualistic bloodline of popular posts we’ve shared in the past, we’ll be showing you what jailbreak tweaks we think make a perfect jailbroken iPhone on iOS 9.
Personally, I believe less is more; keeping a jailbroken device as stock as possible without compromising on your most wanted features helps keep it both stable and functional. Overloading it with jailbreak tweaks for the sake of aesthetics can lead to instability, and that’s something I tend to avoid.
As a result, I focus mainly on tweaks that serve a functional purpose more so than tweaks intended to make your device look cooler. These tweaks will all work with the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3. Read More
While lots of people aspire to have a Bluetooth keyboard to use to type on their iPhone or iPad, not everyone has a pocket deep enough to go out and purchase another peripheral.
Fortunately, an app called Typeeto lets you use the keyboard built into your MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro to type on your iOS devices. Read More
Apple’s newest firmware update for iPhone and iPad brings a slew of new features to them, but according to several users, iOS 10 also happens to be quite thirsty for battery power.
If you feel you’re not getting the battery life you should expect after upgrading your device(s), you may want to follow these tips to help increase the amount of time you can spend using them on a single charge. Read More
Power Reserve mode is a feature of watchOS that let’s you conserve what’s left of your battery when you get low on juice by limiting your Apple Watch’s functionality to nothing more than a time piece.
One of the more useful features for iPhones that comes packed inside of Apple’s new iOS 10 release is voicemail transcription, which transcribes your voicemails into text so you can read them rather than listen to them.
The feature is available to users in the United States and it’s very much still in its beta stages despite the fact that iOS 10 is now a public firmware, but if you want to know how to use it, or to see if you can use it yet, then you’ll be happy to know it’s quite easy to follow. Read More
Apple officially launches macOS Sierra to the public on September 20th, and that means you should probably start preparing your Mac for the upgrade so everything goes as smoothly as possible on launch day.
Every so often, iPhones have a brain fart and you may have to force them to restart or use DFU mode to restore because they either stop responding or start behaving sporadically.
With the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which no longer have a Home “button,” there is a new process to force restart your device or enter DFU mode. These are both essential parts of any troubleshooting process, so it’s good to know how how to do them. Read More
This week has been busy for those of us at iDB since iOS 10 was released to the public for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Of course, the jailbreak community doesn’t sleep just because Apple releases a new firmware update.
The Dock is one of the biggest changes in watchOS 3, which dropped to the public this week, and it provides quick access to up to 10 of your favorite Apple Watch apps from anywhere in the operating system.
A major new feature that comes baked into the watchOS 3 update for Apple Watches is Emergency SOS.
This will let you call 911 to dispatch emergency personnel to your current location and will alert your loved ones that you’re in trouble, in extreme bouts of danger, or life-threatening emergencies, right from your wrist.
One of the new features that ships with watchOS 3 is a standalone Reminders app, and as you’ll soon learn, it can be just as functional as the iPhone app.
The introduction of an official Reminders app on the Apple Watch is great because this little app on your wrist will help you get through all your errands throughout the day and keep track of your busy life.
The app is used with Siri since there is no keyboard to input text on the Apple Watch like there is on your iPhone. With that being said, using the Reminders app may feel a little awkward at first, but it should become a second nature to you in no time at all. Read More
