New libhooker v1.6.9 beta 1 build available to jailbreakers for public testing

If you use any of the CoolStar-led jailbreaks, including Chimera for iOS 12, Odyssey for iOS & iPadOS 13, or Taurine for iOS & iPadOS 14, then there’s a good chance that you’re using libhooker for tweak injection, which is the intricate process that lets installed jailbreak tweaks work their magic on your handset’s operating system.

While CoolStar regularly updates libhooker with improvements, CoolStar just this past weekend opted to launch a public beta of a new libhooker build dubbed libhooker v1.6.9 beta 1 to allow voluntary testers to try the latest features before they roll out to the general public by way of an official update.

Apple seeds eighth betas of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, and watchOS 8 to developers [Update: public betas now available]

It's only been a few days since Apple last seeded a beta of its next major platform updates to developers. But here we are, marching towards the inevitable public launch, and Apple's working on refinements. Which is why, today, we're seeing yet another beta seeded to developers ahead of the wide release for the next major updates to iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

macOS Monterey beta

The march towards a public release of macOS 12 Monterey continues. And, of course, the wide release of the other major software updates. And to get there, we must stay on the beta seed train.

Today, Apple has seeded the sixth beta of macOS 12 Monterey to developers. While this is obviously late in the beta process, it's still worth saying that downloading and installing the prerelease software still shouldn't be done on your primary computer. It's possible the software is still a little rough around the edges as Apple continues to tweak the formula ahead of a public launch later this year. What's more, this is the developer beta, so it's meant for registered developers.

Apple continues to tweak the mobile Safari experience, adds a toggle for a top address bar

With the grand unveiling of the newest version of Safari for iOS and iPadOS, Apple welcomed a few big changes to the experience. The biggest, along with tab groups in general, is that the address bar has been moved to the bottom of the iPhone. However, Apple has been listening to the masses --especially those who have been adamant that the upcoming changes aren't great-- and keeps tweaking that experience ahead of the public launch later this year. And today is no different.

What’s new in iOS 15 beta 5

Earlier today, Apple seeded the fifth beta of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 (and tvOS 15) to developers. Even though we're nearing the public launch of the software, it looks like Apple's not quite finished adding and tweaking a few things with the software.
