A Brief History of the iOS 10 Jailbreak Release for iPhone 7

Although the last branch in the iOS 9 family tree was version 9.3.5 released on August 25, 2016, only iOS 9.3.3 had a publicly available jailbreak solution. That was the case because Apple was able to patch vulnerabilities when they launched version 9.3.4. Despite lots of noise in the jailbreaking community about solutions for subsequent iOS 9.3 branches, the 9.3.3 jailbreak by Pangu on July 2016 was the last known real release.

Apple announced iOS 10 during their Worldwide Developers Conference (WDC) on June 13, 2016. The newest mobile operating system would be supported on several variants of iPhone (5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, 7 Plus) and iPad (4th generation, Air, Air 2, Mini 2, Mini 3, Mini 4, Pro 12.9-inch and Pro 9.7-inch) as well as the iPod Touch 6th generation.

A few registered developers were given a beta release after the WDC announcement and known developer and hacker iH8sn0w was one of the first to demonstrate that iOS 10 can be jailbroken. The Pangu Team also showed off their jailbroken iOS 10 at MOSEC 2016. Luca Tedesco, one of the best known hackers in the world, was also able to demonstrate an iOS 10 jailbreak using beta 8. While all this showed that jailbreaking iOS 10 is possible, a beta version was used. In short, they weren’t working with the official release which, by the time it was made official, could have plugged all the vulnerabilities spotted during the beta phase.

The official release of iOS 10 was made in September 2016. Tedesco was the first to show that Apple’s latest mobile operating system can be jailbroken. This jailbreak was also never released to the public as it was done for private research purposes.

Version 10 received two updates shortly after it was released. The first, version 10.0.2, was released on September 23, 2016. The next version, 10.0.3, was released on October 17, 2016 but was only applicable to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These two were the only updates in the 10.0 sub-branch.

The next major sub-branch, 10.1, was released on October 24, 2016. This version included bug fixes, security patches and new features. A developer called ijapija00 was able to jailbreak that version successfully. He even added that his solution would also work on the next release, 10.1.1.

Apple released iOS 10.1.1 on October 31, 2016. Again, Tedesco was the first one to show that it can be jailbroken.

On December 12, 2016, Apple released another major sub-branch, version 10.2. This featured several updates including new and redesigned emoji. Apart from that, this version patched issues that were exploited by hackers to demonstrate jailbreaks. Included in the fix was an exploit called Project Zero which Tedesco included in a full iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak called Mach_Portal _ Yalu which was released to the public.

Yalu was again updated in early 2017 to include support of iOS 10.2. This time, the tool was called yalu102.

As of this writing, the current iOS version is 10.2.1 and was released on January 23, 2017.

Although there hasn’t been much information on future jailbreaks, Tedesco did mention on his Twitter that yalu1011 for iPhone 7 will be updated “at some point” despite rumors that the jailbreak iphone 7 was his last.

iPhone 6 about to go on Mass Production

There are high chances for Apple to start the mass production of the so much awaited iPhone 6. Most analysts believe that the new gadget is going to be released on the market towards the end of the month of September.

The fact the mass assembly of iPhone 6 is about to start has been suggested by some new Asian developers. The first sign has come from a company named Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company which at the end of July had revenue of 2.16 billion US dollars. The sum was made public after the Taiwanese company had managed to deliver a bulk shipment consisting in A8 chips. These chips are said to be part of the new iPhone 6.

DigiTime claims that its anonymous sources from inside TSMC declared that the Taiwanese company would continue its ascendance in the months to come.  The company owes its growth to the massive production of 20 nm items. These items are in fact the 64 bit A8 CPU.

It is assumed that the TSMC revenue figures will increase with 20% during the last month of 2014. This will be owed to Apple starting its mass production of iPhone 6. It has been forecasted that by the end of the year about eighty millions units of iPhone 6 gadgets will hit the stores. All these new devices will be powered by the A8 processor producers by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. There are also rumors that the American company will use the A9 chips for its 2015 iPhones and iPads. The A9 chips will be probably produced by TSMC in collaboration with Samsung.

The most important components of iPhone 6 started to arrive at the Apple assembly factories located on the Chinese territories in early July. In the meanwhile, at Foxconn (the most important iPhone 6 manufacturer) has gone through some changes. DigiTimes claims that Foxconn has started to make various adjustments in its production lines so as to increase the efficiency of its equipment. All these come to confirm the idea that Apple has already started its mass production of iPhone 6.

The DigiTime reports highlighted that the changes will need some time in order to arrive at the maximum efficiency points. This suggests that the assembly of the next generation iPhone could start in the month of August. The Taiwanese publication claims that the proof of Foxconn becoming a manufacturer of iPhone 6 can be traced in the fact that the gadget manufacturer underwent a drop in its revenues. This was caused by the fact that the delivery of consumer electronic items decreased visibly.

However, by the end of the year Foxconn will be back on track since more than 100 million iPhone gadgets are going to be produced. The figure includes iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C as well.

The iPhone 6 is estimated to arrive by the end of the month of September. There are rumors that the smaller version, having a screen of 4.7 inch will hit the markets first. However, a lot depends on whether Foxconn has actually started to assemble the device.

iPhone 6 versus Knife: the Sapphire Screen wins

A video that has just hit the internet presents viewers a strange knife attack over an iPhone 6. The mobile phone comes untouched after being scratched, bent over the limit and shattered.

More and more leaks are claiming that the new iPhone 6 will come out packed with a very resistant sapphire display. The video that caused so much stir was uploaded by technology expert Brownlee Marques. The viewers can see what apparently seems to be the front cover of the phone put to a series of tests to prove its resistance. The display remains intact despite, Marques’ attempts to damage it.

It is said that Apple has put more than half a billion US dollar in this sapphire display. The material has also been used in very small amounts to create the lens of the iPhone 5 camera. Some recent reports state that the sapphire made screen can survive without a scratch event after being dropped on a concrete surface.

9to5Mac.com, the website belonging to Apple, said in the first months of 2014 that the electronic giant was investing money so as to have an entire display made of sapphire. The reported claimed that the company had managed to get enough material to start the production of about 100-200 million iPhone display having a sixe of five inches.

Without a doubt, the sapphire crystal costs much more than the “gorilla glass” that was used for the making of the previous Apple iPhone screens. Thus, many experts believe that the price of the new iPhone 6 will be quite high.

The “knife attack video” comes to confirm that the photos which invaded the internet in the past months might not actually present the final shape and design of iPhone 6.

The pictures that have come out reveal a curvy, slick glass screen, a bit different from the old photographs that were supposed to present the new iPhone 6. There are many who say that the older photographs actually show some dummies belonging to the pre-production phase.

Nikkei, the Japanese newspaper, states that the stripes that can be seen on the back side of the mobile phone, which are supposed to be able to catch radio frequencies, are not going to be visible for the eye when the phones reaches the public.

Nikkei claims that the iPhone 6 will not present stripes at all. The reporters at Nikkei believe that the stripes point out the areas where glass will replace aluminum, as it is the case with iPhone 5. They also issued the alternative of having the stripes visible but made of very polished glass. Lots of Apple enthusiasts have expressed their huge relief that the pictures they have seen up till now, do not present the final version of iPhone 6.

Some new pictures that appeared on 9to5Mac, present a phone equipped with a screen made of sapphire crystals. The phone is seen only from the front but it is possible to distinguish very well the polished glass and the edges that are quite curved.

The Chinese Apple supplier claimed that iPhone 6 would be launched on the 19th of September. Meanwhile Deutsche Telecom told its client to expect for the mobile phone to be launched during the third Friday of the month of September. iPhone 5 S and iPhone 5 C were both launched on a Friday in September.

The reports received from various Apples supplier hint that the new mobile phone has entered the production process. The reports also reveal that the new iPhone will have two versions, each bigger than the ones extant on the market.

The Bloomberg sources have confirmed the fact that Apple is about to launch two versions of the iPhone 6: one having 4.7 inches and the other 5.5 inches. Most of the previous reports claimed that the larger model would not be available at the same time with the smaller version. However, the Bloomberg report claimed that both versions would be available for the public in the month of September. Thus, most experts in the domain wait for Apple to launch its much rumoured gadgets in the month of September.

The media is filled with rumours about the new features of the new iPhone 6. Thus, it is believed that it will have a liquid metal shell, which is much stronger than aluminium. This means that at least in theory the phone will be lighter and slimmer without having its strength affected not even for a bit. However, this is unlikely to happen since Liquidmetal has produced only small components so far.

There are rumours that iPhone 6 will have liquid metal components. This might be true, since various reports hinted that the alloy would be used for the iPhone’s buttons as well as switches, which have always been a weak point for iPhones.

A Bloomberg reported claimed that iPhone 6 is going to have a curved type screen. These screens are considered to be much more comfortable, durable and better for watching videos as well as playing games.

Mac Rumours claims that the 5.5 inches version of iPhone 6 will have an optical image stabilisation. The performance of the camera is more and more important for users and therefore producers pay more attention to this phone feature. Thus, optical stabilisation which has the possibility to cut the blurs in images could be a sound reason for a higher price to be requested for the new iPhone 6, the 5.5 inches version.

Some consider that eye-tracking will be one of the new features of iPhone 6. The phone would present the possibility to be eye controlled thus, giving the users the possibility to scroll down the pages without having to use their hands.

The Near Field Communication is supposed to be part of iPhone 6. Thus, the telephone would act as some sort of system of payment. Thus, iPhone buyers will have the possibility to put the handset on a receiver than make money transfers in restaurants or when in a shop. There are some Android as well as some Windows mobile phones that already have an incorporated NFC, but Apple still has to take this step forward.

It is said that the electronic company is trying to find a suitable way to let the mobile phones control their flashes. But, there is no information about the time when this system is going to be produced.

There are lots of users who hope that iPhone 6 will have a monitor for health and various health applications, especially since Apple has proven its interest in this field by launching the iOS 8. FitBit and FuelBand are a living proof of these interests and of Apple’s plans in this direction. Rumours claim that iPhone 6 will be capable of tracking its owner’s metrics, pulse and body temperature.

So, all iPhone 6 fans should keep their fingers cross and hope that all their wishes might come true in the month of September when the new phone is supposed to reach the stores.

Apples and Its Appealing iPhone Features for Parents

In my activity domain I am frequently approached to consider the convenience of both fittings and programming, particularly of cell phones. One of my enormous touchstones and one that is overlooked by an astonishing number of developers— is that most things cannot be found in the vacuum.

In the event that your objective is to have thousands, or millions, of individuals utilizing your product, it is common sense that you have to consider how it functions when you are travelling in an underground train, bus or tram, sandwiched between sweaty and highly irritated individuals. You also have to make sure if it user friendly in bursting daylight, when driving an automobile, or while doing something with your other hand.

My gratefulness for these ‘hardship utilization situations’ just expanded when I had a child. All that you do is ten times harder when you are attempting to help someone learning, being fed, put to bed and or to simply no die of exhaustion while doing all these.

That, I consider, is still a quality that the iPhone has over numerous different gadgets. I have and liked using gadgets focused around various platforms such as like Android. However Apple’s overwhelming concentration on clear, open outline in both equipment and programming has given the iPhone a huge advantage and has made by far friendlier for exhausted and always on the run individuals.

When you are juggling with one, two or ten children and simply attempting to accomplish things, being able to twiddle around with your friendly working system simply does not feel as essential as having things work right.

That is the reason why Apple is tapping with the most recent spot in its “more powerful” types of iPhone ads. The commercial, having the suggestive Parenthood, went in the air this evening concentrating on folks playing and using their smart phones in the company of their children.

The iPhone emphasis numerous child related task such as infant monitoring, figuring out how to brush your toofers, games to play while attending children’s parties and other child-parent activities.

One intriguing thing I noted: the spot does not demonstrate the iPhone being utilized to provide passive entertainment. The applications are all painstakingly decided to show things being carried out, not something that positions the iPhone as a surrogate guardian.

The melody in the spot is ‘Life of Dreams’, sungby Julie Doiran and the applications emphasized are the ones called Kinsa, My Teeth, Drawnimal, Wemo and Nike Running. They have not forgotten about Pet Manager and Parrot F.P.

Likewise, with the latest iPhone spot centered on wellbeing, Apple maintains the usual standard of its hardware component. This is excessively shocking, as I tis vigorously supposed to present a wearable gadget with a wellbeing center. Thus, it simply invested a lump of keynote time ont WWDC discussing its new equipment system in Homekit.

The iPhone associated gadgets which have been incorporated are: the Kinsa Thermometer, the Light Gadget Proscope Micro. Parents and children will also like Withings Withbaby, Tractivel Neckline and probably the above mentioned Flower Power will become an instant hit.

Please observe that I am not saying you cannot do these activities on any Android gadget. I can do the majority of these things on my Nexus 5; however they are not about as simple or secure. It is a decent thing, that Apple has centered internal in these spots, on indicating what their gadgets are prepared to do.

You should compare what I said in the above line with the ad that Samsung launched this week, which is provided with “parental angle” as well.

The tone puts on a show of being barbarous and guarding, and does not even demonstrate that probably the camera has superior features to the previous ones.  Also, given that the iPhone is the best known camera on the planet, with in excess of 515m sold, its likewise not to be assaulting a feeble point whatsoever.

The Apple advertisement, by and by, centers specifically on what the iPhone can accomplish for you and does not focus on the weak points of its competitors. Ease of use is a profound quality of iPhones and Apple is aware of this. It is a well-known fact that this convenience is held dear by most people having children than for other phone users..

I like that the straightforward LED functions in the sun, because we have to admit that most of us have used this thing as an electric lamp.
