Checkra1n is one of the best ways to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad if you have a compatible device (A7-A11) because it utilizes an un-patchable hardware-based bootrom exploit known as checkm8. Perhaps the only notable caveat to checkra1n is that it’s a semi-tethered jailbreak, which means that you need a computer to return to a jailbroken state if you reboot your device for any reason.
Doogee, a prolific maker of shockproof smartphones, kindly sent me their S95 Pro rugged smartphone with some useful add-ons for review. I've been using this device alongside my iPhone XS Max on an everyday basis for almost two months now.

Apple unveiled two flagship handsets at the September 12th event, subtly named the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max, with the former being a 5.8-inch model just like the previous-generation iPhone X and the latter being a 6.5-inch model for those who prefer larger displays.
In this piece, we’ll outline the under-the-hood specs that come standard on the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max models:
Research funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has determined that smartphones are vulnerable to a "slew" of security loopholes that could allow hackers to gain access.

While Apple has been steadily improving low-light photography capabilities of the iPhone cameras, Samsung still beats it in terms of high-sensitivity shooting. This could change if Apple opts to use Sony's new 48-megapixel camera sensor in future iPhone models.
From the iPhone X to the OnePlus 6, to the upcoming Google Pixel 3, notches are playing a central role in this year's crop of smartphones. The Oppo Find X, however, takes a different approach. The new smartphone, which launches today, June 19, features a motorized camera without a notch.
