Apple is renowned for introducing new features that are specific
to certain devices or firmware versions, and if you’re jailbroken on an older
device/firmware combination, then you might be inclined to feel a bit left out.
For this very reason, iOS developer Duraid
Abdul has just released a new free jailbreak tweak
dubbed Neptune for iPhone.
Citing the points made by the developer in the tweak’s Cydia
depiction, Neptune for iPhone brings each of the following features to the
table for jailbreakers using iOS 12.0-12.1.2:
Although its release is still months away, Tropico for iPad is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated iOS games of 2018. Now there’s more to know about the ported game, which was announced just a few weeks ago.
One of the hottest video games from early this century is coming to an iPad near year. Tropico, the city-building game set on an island in the Caribbean, is being redesigned and developed for mobile devices. Best of all, when it’s released, it will be a full-priced game with no in-app purchases.
I routinely use the Camera app on both my iPhone and iPad, but between the two, I prefer the look and feel of the Camera interface on the iPad.
If you’re in the same boat, then a new free jailbreak tweak called iPad Cam for iPhone (iOS 10) by iOS developer Adel Hammoud might be right up your alley.
Good news for 90's gamers this morning as the classic action-adventure game 'Little Big Adventure' is now available in the App Store. This means you can download the title, which first launched on the PC back in 1994, to your iPhone or iPad and let the nostalgia kick in.
For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Little Big Adventure is considered a real-time pseudo-3D isometric game. You play as Twinsen, a young hero living on Citadel Island on a world ruled by the evil dictator Dr. FunFrock, who is charged with protecting his planet...
Winocm, the developer leading the work on the iOS 6.1.3/4 jailbreak, has managed to port iOS to a non-Apple device. The photo you see above is the iOS core, known as the "XNU Kernel," running on a Nokia N900 smartphone.
The port is extremely primitive, as it doesn't include any of iOS’s or OS X’s user-interface elements and cannot be run as a useable operating system. But it does signal a major development for the ongoing open source project...
Since Apple unveiled Siri as an iPhone 4S-exclusive feature back in October, the entire jailbreak community has been waiting for it to be ported to older devices. We've seen videos of hackers running the digital assistant on non-4S hardware, but never a public release.
Tonight it would seem like the wait is finally over, as a new jailbreak app entitled Spire has just surfaced in Cydia. The utility, created by prominent jailbreak developers Ryan Petrich and chpwn, is a tool for installing Siri on unsupported, jailbroken devices...
Ever since videos started popping up online of Siri working on non-iPhone 4S devices, everyone has wondered one thing: when will it be available to the masses? Apple has restricted Siri to its latest handset, so hackers have taken it upon themselves to set it free.
Up until this point, the digital assistant port has only been possible for knowledgeable folks with access to iPhone 4S files. But a jailbreak utility has just surfaced in Cydia that could change that. The app is H1Siri, and it claims to offer full Siri functionality on the iPhone 4...
Apple recently stated in a support email that it has no plans to bring Siri to older iDevices, and many are wondering why. If it's just a matter of software, then Apple's decision to not bring Siri to non-4S devices can be seen as a simple marketing gimmick. If other devices can run Siri like the iPhone 4S, then why not make it available for everyone?
Porting Siri to other iDevices involves more than just software, as there are some noticeable hardware differences in the iPhone 4S.
Siri has certainly been at the forefront of tech news over the last few weeks. Since Apple introduced the digital assistant at its iPhone 4S event in October, it seems to be everyone's favorite subject. And the question on everyone's mind is, can it be ported to other devices?
To make a long story short, yes, it can. Although it's not available to the public (and likely won't be for some time, if ever), developers have managed to successfully port Siri to the iPhone 4. And as we've seen, it works really well. But why stop there?
