We reported yesterday that Apple is introducing a new privacy feature.
Apple is introducing a new privacy feature for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV.
iOS 11.3 brought a laundry list of new features to iPhone and iPad today, including iMessages in iCloud, new Animoji, new health features, ARKit enhancements and more. Among those is support for AirPlay 2.
Happy beta day, everyone!
Avid jailbreakers are somewhat spoilt this Christmas. Having had an end-of-life iOS 10 32-bit tool by tihmstar, and an iOS 11 tool too, the gifts just keep on coming. The Apple TV 4 and 4K have been brought into the fold, with a tvOS counterpart to Jonathan Levin's LiberiOS, called LiberTV.
Apple on Wednesday rolled out second betas of iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 to its public beta testers.
Gone are the days of radio silence, followed by the single release of a finished jailbreak tool for all devices. As the scene moves from funded teams working in secrecy, to public exploits being worked on co-operatively by individual developers in an open forum, the workflow has also changed.
We now hear incremental updates, sometimes multiple times a day, which are more technical and reinforce, modify, or even invalidate previous news. That's why we've put together a quick round-up of the current state of affairs, which will bring you up to date.
Less than 24 hours following the launch of first developer betas for iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5, they're now available to public beta testers who are enrolled in Apple's Beta Software Program.
Apple followed up on today's release of iOS 11.2.1 with the tvOS 11.2.1 update for Apple TV.
With the release of Ian Beer's new exploit, some hope for a future Apple TV 4/4K jailbreak has appeared. The exploit will theoretically work on firmwares up to and including tvOS 11.1, but not 11.2 and higher. For this reason, I advised in my jailbreak guide that Apple TV 4/4K users who want to have a chance of jailbreaking manually restore now to tvOS 11.1, before it goes unsigned. You can use our guide on the topic to do so.
Released on December 4, 2017, the tvOS 11.2 software update brought a pair of new HDR viewing options for Apple TV 4K owners along with access to a brand new Sports tab within Apple's TV app and assorted under-the-hood changes and fixes.
tvOS 11.2 lets your Apple TV 4K automatically switch video display modes in order to match a video's dynamic range and/or native frame rate. Owners of the fourth-generation model can use only frame rate matching, provided they're on the tvOS 11.3 software or later.
