The talented Liang Chen of security research group KeenLab has once again flexed his hacking prowess this week after showing off what is believed to be the first-known jailbreak demonstration to support iOS 12.2.
Chen’s video demonstration, which has been published on YouTube, demonstrates what appears to be an iPhone XS Max running iOS 12.2:
New renderings of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors due this September depict negligibly thicker devices with a redesigned circular Mute switch within a pill-shaped cutout, plus a large triple-lens camera bump integrated into the real glass and more.
According to the latest research note from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's iPhone lineup for 2019 will significantly boost the resolution of your selfies by upgrading the front camera on all models from the current seven-megapixel shooter to a twelve-megapixel sensor.
Apple's #ShotoniPhone campaign continued today with a new video posted to the company's official YouTube channel highlighting whale shark research with pretty cool underwater photography and features great videography work.
Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd first introduced ‘partial’ A12(X) device support for the unc0ver iOS 12 jailbreak tool just under three weeks ago, but as most of the jailbreak community already knows, full support for A12(X) devices won’t be possible until Saurik first updates Cydia Substrate with compatibility for arm64e devices.
In a short spiel Monday afternoon, Pwn20wnd took to Twitter with a small status update for those still wondering about the status of the A12(X) jailbreak:
Notched handsets such as the iPhone X, XR, XS, and XS Max sport unique features and gestures that aren’t available on non-notched handsets such as the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and earlier. With that in mind, iOS developer Ryan Nair figured he’d do something about that, and a pair of free jailbreak tweaks dubbed Poseidon and Poseidon-Rounded were conceived.
These tweaks port many of the most sought-after features and gestures available on notched handsets to non-notched handsets, including the following:
Last December, Apple gave its registered developers an important heads-up about a new rule requiring that all new apps and app updates for iPhone, including universal ones, be built with the iOS 12 SDK and support the new iPhone XS Max form factor.
For yeas, Apple has been assembling iPhone SE and iPhone 6s in India via Wistron to save on importation costs. The contract manufacturer is now said to be expanding its production capabilities into newer models, including the latest iPhone XS and iPhone XR line.
Jailbreakers rejoice; iOS developer maximehip has released a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed HuddyX that revamps the volume HUD on notched handsets such as the iPhone X, XR, XS, and XS Max to make it much less intrusive.
In the screenshot example above, you can discern how HuddyX materializes as a black extension from the notch itself, appearing at the top of the display with a live volume indicator inside of it.
Apple should release a trio of new iPhone models in 2019 and some of them are thought to feature a specialized polished coating that's rumored to debut this spring on the next AirPods.
