Just this past week, Apple unveiled the spectacular new iPhone 13 lineup and scheduled an official release date for iOS & iPadOS 15 on this coming Monday. Despite the upcoming changes, the jailbreak community continues to hang in there.
Being in control of your iPhone’s display brightness can be incredibly convenient depending on your surrounding circumstances. But I’ve long noticed that even the lowest brightness setting isn’t quite as low as I like it sometimes.
iOS’ native alert system hasn’t changed much in recent years, but one major convenience of jailbreaking is that users can install third-party add-ons to change the look and behavior of almost anything they desire.
As capable of an internet communications device as the iPhone is, it seems like Apple doesn’t give users all that many options for Wi-Fi connectivity and network management.
Like most things Apple, the company instead took a user-friendly approach to reduce the number of interactions a user makes with configuration. This makes complicated things more approachable by the masses, but it can be annoying if you’re a power user that demands more capabilities.
Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs for short, have become an increasingly popular way for consumers to keep their data private and secure while browsing the web via a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
On iPhones, a VPN icon will be displayed in the Status Bar after you connect to one. But notched iPhones like the iPhone X and later minimize the VPN indicator to interfaces with full-sized Status Bar due to size constraints, such as that of Control Center.
There are so many different jailbreak tweaks out there that it can be a substantial challenge for those just now joining our community to decide where they should start with respect to customizing their pwned iPhone or iPad.
For the past several years, the overwhelming majority of jailbreaks have been semi-untethered, meaning that you could still use a handset hacked liberated by said tools after a reboot, albeit in a non-jailbroken state.
The lack of untethered jailbreaks — or those that remain fully jailbroken following a reboot — has been a pain point for jailbreakers for as long as anyone can remember. For that reason, a Tweet shared by @LinusHenze Monday afternoon might be of particular interest…
Apple didn't do the traditional beta seeding for this release, but there were hints that Apple was working on a new software version of iOS ahead of the much more anticipated iOS 15. And, it turns out that is indeed the case.
Today, Apple has released iOS 14.8, iPadOS 14.8, watchOS 7.6.2, and macOS 11.6 Big Sur to the public. While the version number would suggest something big, that's not really going to be the case. This is meant to be the final version of iOS 14 released to the public, so it's not necessarily meant to add any major new features to the mix.
At iDownloadBlog, we continue to cover new jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news on a daily basis despite the annual pre-event lull. But life often keeps us so busy that keeping up with everything new proves to be a challenging endeavor.
The most current jailbreak tools available to the public today are Taurine and unc0ver, each of which are capable of jailbreaking devices running up to and including iOS or iPadOS 14.3. Several iPhone and iPad software updates later, and we’re currently residing at iOS & iPadOS 14.7.1 with a public iOS & iPadOS 15 release looming just over the horizon.
Having said that, the elephant in the room would be the blazingly-obvious question: where are all the jailbreak-viable exploits for iOS 14.4 and later?
The Sileo Team released yet another update to the Sileo package manager for jailbroken iPhones and iPads this week, this time bringing it up to version 2.2.5.
