Let me say this first: I don't personally find jailbreaking to be a very good idea. A voided warranty, the possibility of using some potentially malicious, unauthorized app -- it's just not worth the headache. But all the same, I can appreciate why some iOS users may find the concept alluring. Today, a group of hackers have finally succeeded in releasing jailbreak software compatible with iPhone 5, iPad mini, and iOS 6.1.
So the reviews have started coming in for jOBs, Apple TV got an update and so did your other iOS devices, Vine got launched, got pulled, got tweaked, got 25% less sexy, and a whole bunch of other stuff, so let's see what's cooking in the hot pot of news this week.
Hard to believe that the month of December is nearly half over already, with less than two weeks until the Christmas holiday! Things have certainly been quite busy in the tech world, with plenty of new or updated apps released and a plethora of services also getting new features this week. And what's this about a new untethered jailbreak? Read on to find out more...
As you may know, jailbreaking is the best way to "hack" your iPhone or iPad to get the features and apps you want that Apple and the App Store won't provide. The latest jailbreak tool to hit the streets is called Absinthe 2.0 and it allows any iOS 5.1.1 device to be jailbroken, including the latest iPad. Read on to find out how to take the plunge and easily jailbreak your iOS device.
Just like your Memorial Day picnic, today's Hottest News is a little of this and a little of that. So get yourself a big plate of mashed jailbreak potatoes, a side dish of free apps, and a bowl of iPhone 5 rumors. Then settle back to watch the cats play with iOS devices and enjoy.
Who knew “jailbreak” could be considered a dirty word? Apparently someone at Apple thought so, which is why the word was censored from the iTunes Store for the better part of Wednesday night and Thursday. Everything is back to normal now, but the hacker community sure got a kick out of it while the fun lasted. So what else is making news today? Glad you asked. Read on for everything else this Thursday, May 17, 2012 has to offer.
Jailbreaking allows you to do a multitude of fun things with your phone that Apple wouldn't normally allow you to do, like install apps that enable tethering and adding a little more customization to iOS. With just a few simple steps, you can have your iOS device sporting a new theme or running a new tool that Apple wouldn’t allow in the App Store.
You know the big news of the week was the new iPad. It's almost like there was no oxygen left in the room for any other article under discussion, but we found a few to tease you with before we get to the goods. Don't worry, they're still great stories, but in case you missed the latest iPad day, we have quite the round up for you.
