    Last week, we saw Apple release the first beta of iOS 6.1.1, just a couple days after the first iOS 6 jailbreak was released. We wondered at the time if the new build might be an attempt to kill the jailbreak, but reports indicated that it didn't affect the jailbreak's operation. We knew at the time that it would deliver certain improvements to Maps for Japanese users, but now the true purpose of iOS 6.1.1 may be starting to become clear, upon rumors arriving that it will made public quite soon in order to fix 3G connectivity issues introduced with iOS 6.1. We showed you how at least one ...

    With as complex as modern operating systems are, it's quite commonplace that the release of a new update, especially one going out to millions of users running a whole bunch of different devices, ends up causing a few unexpected glitches. That's especially true for Apple, with all the different iPhone and iPad models each release of iOS supports. With the recent arrival of iOS 6.1, it looks like just such a problem has crept up on owners of the iPhone 4S, upon reports coming in of issues with 3G connectivity. Carrier Vodafone has posted a message to its forums warning users of an issue ...

    Even if it takes six Skype calls to make a podcast happen, we're gonna do it for you folks, because that's just the kind of guys we are. And it's a good thing, too; while the news cycle has calmed down somewhat in the wake of last week's big BlackBerry event, there's still plenty to talk about from the worlds of Android and Windows Phone, from rumors and speculation to ... well, no, just rumors and speculation, really. But it's scintillating stuff, especially if you're into things named "M7" and "Nokia Tablet." All that, plus listener mail and a heaping helping of Joe Levi's robot voice, ...

    It's been nine days since Apple publicly released iOS 6.1, and two since team evad3rs launched its evasi0n untethered jailbreak. That spelled an end to the four-and-a-half month grace period Apple enjoyed where none of its users running current software could employ an untethered jailbreak. Today we learn that Apple has already started seeding an iOS 6.1.1 beta to its developers, making us wonder if the company is trying to quickly shut the door on the evasi0n jailbreak. From what we heard yesterday, evasi0n relies on a whole bunch of separate exploits in order to worm its way into iOS ...

    While most of us are only going to focus on the end results of a massive hack like the one the evad3rs managed to pull off to produce their evasi0n jailbreak, some of us smartphone fanatics are just as interested in exactly what steps needed to be taken to overcome Apple's heavyweight iOS security system. Luckily for us, evad3rs member David Wang (planetbeing) spoke to Forbes to reveal just what tricks evasi0n uses to sidestep Apple's protection. Wang's report isn't quite a full technical description of exactly what evasi0n does to achieve its jailbreak down to every last system call, but ...

    To Jailbreak or not to Jailbreak, that's the question we've received everywhere for the last 24 hours since Evasi0n was released, and we do understand the concerns of many of you. The fact of the matter is that it's really a matter of personal preference, and while some may be extremely inclined to do it because of their daily needs of their iPhone or iPad, some users don't really use their iOS products in a way that would warrant it. Jailbreaking an iPhone is very different to rooting an Android device. On Android, rooting allows you to load custom ROMs that enable you to really push the ...

    There have been plenty of rumors suggesting that Apple's interested in moving beyond simply selling its users music through iTunes as an a la carte experience, and introduce something along the lines of services like Spotify, where users can get access to a huge library of music to stream for an ongoing monthly fee. Despite all the reports along this line, we've yet to see anything of the sort materialize, an absence that separate rumors have pegged to Apple's struggles in working out the necessary licensing agreements with rights-holders. Rumors suggest that this kind of service could ...

    First we showed you how to get it done on the iPad, and now it's the iPhone's turn. For those of you fans of the Jailbreak underworld, the time has come. Evasi0n was finally released today for all iOS 6 compatible devices, and it’s as easy and stable as the most popular Jailbreaks we’ve seen in the past. Jailbreaking will allow you to side-load applications and services to iOS 6 that Apple has either not intended or not considered for your device. And as we historically know, many of these solutions have served to make iOS what it currently is since Apple has hired a couple of the ...

    Earlier this week, following Apple's launch of iOS 6.1, we told you about how all signs were pointing to the release of an untethered jailbreak supporting all the latest iPhone and iPad models for this Sunday. Team evad3rs has since put up a website to keep interested iOS users up to date on their progress towards getting the code ready for a release, and by the looks of things, that Sunday estimate could well be within their reach. We now know that the jailbreak itself will be called evasi0n, and according to the team, they're about 68% of the way done from starting with the exploit ...
