The new iPhones are finally coming together — quite literally, in fact, as word dropped today that Samsung and TSMC are in the process of making the new A9 chips. Elsewhere, a scam is once again robbing hapless iOS users of their money, and the class-action lawsuit regarding employee bag checks at Apple retail stores has returned.
We're getting closer and closer to Apple's fall event, which means more rumors are cropping up, leaks are making headlines, claimed leaks are competing for news cycle oxygen, and jockeying for a little time on Apple's hobby TV box thingamajig is becoming more interesting. Did you miss any of that this week? Well, climb aboard, kids, because we're gonna do the news in ten.
A new website has surfaced, preaching the great gospel of unlocking and jailbreaking. iPhone Infused alleges that there is a way to legally avoid 2 year contracts, outrageous fees, and access thousands of free applications and ringtones! The site promises that for $40, you too can jailbreak and unlock the heck out of your iPhone.
Now, just consider the absurdity of the website’s claim.
There’s a video up at Infused’s website that is supposedly “proof” their “simple solution” will work. The Dev Team member, who maintains that the site is a hoax, says the video is just a re-edited, reversed version of one he recorded.
The site looks a little hoaky itself, despite it's incredibly trendy design. Word to the wise, if the iPhone Dev Team thinks you should steer clear, they're probably on to something.
