During its pre-taped September 24 "California Streaming" product reveal, Apple unveiled a sixth-generation iPad mini with a new design and features like the removal of the Home button, improved cameras, a power button with an embedded Touch ID sensor and more.
Today is the big day. Apple is going "California Streaming" and taking us with them. And not just us! The company has some new products along for the ride as well.
There's a possibility that today's California Streaming event is, well, very streamlined. We know we'll see the iPhone 13 lineup debut later today, and the Apple Watch Series 7 is a safe bet as well. What's up in the air, though, is whether or not we'll see any new iPad models showcased today, or if we'll see the third-generation AirPods for that matter.
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…
As of iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2, you've been able to access music recognition through the Control Center overlay. Apple has announced that customers have used this Shazam-powered feature more than a billion times since those software updates dropped in November 2020.
There should be an Appleevent in October to discuss new Macs and iPads, including a revamped iPad mini as well as 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros powered by the new A1X chip.
Just a couple of days ago, the Odyssey Team shared that it was already investing in test devices for iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak development. The announcement was accompanied by a photograph of an iPod touch that had been custom engraved with the words “Odyssey Team” on the back.
More recently, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar took to the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel to share that libhooker — the tweak injection method utilized by the Chimera, Odyssey, and Taurine jailbreaks for iOS 12, 13, and 14 respectively — was mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8.
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?
In a spark of optimism for the jailbreak community, the Odyssey Team seems to be getting a head start with respect to investing in the future of jaibreaking.
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.
