iOS 7.x jailbreak

For those interested in “unlocking” their Apple devices and still locked on iOS 6 waiting for a change, Evasi0n website has silently published an untethered jailbreak from iOS 7 to 7.0.4; this means that rebooting the iPhone won’t have any issues if battery is dead, unlike the tethered that will brick it when powered down as it doesn’t afflict the OS at deeper levels.

How the Lost Mode works on iOS 7 devices and iCloud

One of the biggest changes involved in the iOS 7 update came out this week is the Lost Mode in iCloud. Lost Mode allows any device connected to your own Apple ID to be locked down with a 4 digit PIN code and seamlessly track its movements on the map. But how secure this can be? And how does it work?

How to activate the Lost Mode

Lost Mode can be activated only through Find my iPhone, either on icloud.com/#find or from the iOS app, it doesn’t matter which one you choose. After having selected the lost device, you have three options. Play Sound, Erase, and Lost Mode. Play sound simply makes the device ring an alarm even if it is silenced or audio is muted, while Erase will delete every content on it, even if after doing so it will be impossible to locate it again.

Apple announces the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C; the post-Jobs era has started.

Yesterday Apple has announced the next generation of the iPhone, reaching 5S. Anyway, it wasn’t the only device presented. In fact, for the first time ever, there is a low cost version of the iPhone, the 5C. Nonetheless, instead of keeping the iPhone 5 as the free model under the normal 2 year contract, the iPhone 4S took its place. With this year’s keynote, we have the confirmation that the post-Jobs era has started, completely.

iPhone 5C

iPhone 5C

Made partly in glass for the front and hard-coated polycarbonate on the back which envelops the borders too, the iPhone 5C presents in multiple colors; green, blue, yellow, red and white alongside with official cases with even greater color range. It’s obvious that iOS 7 is fitted in looks to adapt to the color you choose as the transparency levels of the UI adapts on the background color. It is powered by an A6 chip, same as the iPhone 5 and one step ahead of the 4S’ A5. The camera has still 8MP with 5 lens optics, technically nearly the same quality of the 4S, but not on the software side. The iPhone 5C has the ability to take photos while recording and can zoom in by a maximum of 3x. In the end it supports thirteen LTE bands worldwide, expanding the USA-only limit imposed by the iPhone 5.

The 5C will be available from 549$ for the 16GB model and 649$ for 32GB one. Read More…

iphone5s_hardware

Some idealistic previews of the future iPhone 5S showed it having a particular new hardware for it: a biometric sensor. Something that sounds slightly too futuristic, directly from Star Trek or sort of, but now we have two confirmations that boosts the probabilities of the new hardware. Read More…
