    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 developers behind some of the apps being offered. It's hard to answer the question: Why ...

    When Apple released iOS 6 we knew that YouTube will go missing -- and it's been removed since Beta 4 -- alongside Google Maps, but Mountain View was quick to react and released a dedicated application which only supported the iPhone and not the iPad. Then then iPhone 5 came along and the app was displaying black bars at the top and bottom of the larger screen with larger resolution but all of these are sorted out now. The new version of YouTube not only adds support for the iPhone 5 -- getting rid of the black bars and displaying nice, full-screen videos -- but it now also supports Apple's ...

    Yesterday Apple announced that the iPhone 5 will become available this month in 50+ additional countriesand now it's time for Cupertino's iTunes online store to make its way to the same number of markets. Russia, Turkey, India, and South Africa are joining other regions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean. The iTunes Store is now accessible in 119 countries for those who want to purchase content like music while more than 700,000 applications in the online market are available in 155 countries for iPhone and iPad users. Apple also just ...

    According to the latest numbers released by Gartner for the third quarter of 2012, Android is leading the OS competition with more than 70%, followed by a distant Apple iOS and its close to 14%. Despite these figures Apple has managed to be the undisputed leader of Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping, according to an IBM research. Overall, online sales grew year-on-year 17.4% on Thanksgiving Day and 20.7% on Black Friday; out of all these, mobile consumers accounted for 16.3%. Apple has managed to top the charts with the iPad and the iPhone, as follows: the iPad accounted for 9.8% ...

    This is one of those rumors we've seen in the past, like the one where Samsung reportedly terminated its supply contract with Apple or the one concerning the alleged 20% price increase the South Korean manufacturer imposed for processors. Today's rumor refers to batteries and the report comes from China Business News. It claims that Apple has to turn to its alternative battery manufacturers -- Amperex Technology Limited and Tianjin Lishen Battery -- for the iPad (and MacBook Air) after Samsung reportedly halts supply. However, previous reports were all debunked and information denies ...

    Apple's online Store might be down for the moment and it's probably because of the Black Friday deals which include, alongside iPads, computers, accessories and iPods. Keep on refreshing and you might get lucky! While an unlocked iPhone 5 is still not available from Apple -- and thus no discounts here -- you might want to take a look at the reduced iPad prices if you're in the market for an Apple tablet. The iPad With Retina Display -- that's the newest, "iPad 4" -- has been discounted by $41, $51, or $61, depending on the storage option. You can get it for $458, $548, or $638 for the 16-, ...

    Yesterday, about 24 hours ago, we reported that Nokia has released its -- now rebranded -- HERE maps for iOS, making it available for iPhone and iPad. Today, 24 hours later, the application is already the fourth application in the top free iPhone app list on iTunes, way above popular titles like Pandora, Spotify, Twitter, or even some Apple apps. After iOS 6 removed Google Maps from the system, users of the iPhone 5 -- as well as previous version of the iPhone and iPad that were updated to iOS 6 -- were left with Apple's own maps and some alternatives proposed by Apple itself after the ...

    The Here maps were announced by Nokia last week and we knew to expect an iOS iteration, among others. It appears that the application is now available in the iTunes App Store for both the iPhone and the iPad. When Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologized for the poor experience in iOS 6, he offered some alternatives available in the App Store until Apple's own mapping solutions become what they should have been. Here maps by Nokia is such an alternative mapping solution (now that Google Maps is no longer the default and a new iteration is yet to arrive) and, according to the description, it brings ...

    Apple Stores are present in more and more countries and regions but you won't find this Apple store in your neighborhood or on the official list online. This is because Apple has apparently opened up a store within eBay, though there is no official confirmation of this report just yet as both eBay and the Cupertino-based manufacturer refrained from comments. It is called "Refurbished Outlet" and you can access it by following the source link below. The page allows you to purchase reconditioned Apple hardware and there are quite a lot of similarities between this page and Apple's ...

    You probably know about the back and forth in the UK regarding the acknowledgement Apple had to publish on its website. The initial text was found to be improper and the court ordered Apple to replace it, something which happened recently in the printed media too. Now Apple's website features not one but two acknowledgements. The first one, at the bottom of the front page, contains a link to the legal text alongside the lines: "On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not ...

    If you've seen (or know all about) the iPhone 5 event then you know that Apple's new iTunes version 11 was slated for an October release. There's little to no doubt that today will be the day and the company itself seems to be teasing the next generation all-in-one application. "Get ready for the new iTunes" is the title of the document which doesn't miss the opportunity to let you know that "the arrival of a new version of iTunes presents a good opportunity to spruce up your library for its new surroundings". The new version of the application will not only bring new features but it will ...

    In a little over a day, starting at 1 p.m. Eastern, Apple's latest event is going to start getting underway, and unless we've all totally missed the mark here, Apple should be unveiling its iPad mini. The idea that Apple would shrink-down its 9.7-inch tablet to a more portable form factor is an old one, dating back to well before the iPad 3 arrived. While the rumors are old-hat, actual hard evidence of this new iPad didn't start surfacing until this summer, when we got to look at several supposed iPad mini components. Eventually, we saw those parts start coming together, forming the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through the recent Nexus 10 leaks that include some amazing discoveries when it comes to the display. Then we move on to the LG Nexus 4 and some other news regarding the current Galaxy Nexus. We later talk about Verizon's launch of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR HD MAXX on retail. Then we go through some recent leaks regarding the iPad just days away from the iPad Mini announcement. We end today's show talking about Sony's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade plans, which sadly always disappoint. All this and more after the break.

    If you want a brand-new iPad today, you can either shell out $500 and up for an iPad 3, or go a little easier on your pocketbook and snag an iPad 2. Sales of those start at just $400, and even though the original iPad 2 dates back to spring of 2011, models currently in production use the newer S5L8942 A5 chip, manufactured on a more modern 32nm process. Though that hardware refresh gave the tablet a nice shot in the arm, its days may already be numbered, upon rumors that Apple could end sales of the iPad 2 with the arrival of the iPad mini. Now, to be fair, this rumor doesn't come from any ...

    Whether you like Apple's own mapping offering on iOS 6 or you hate it there is no doubt at this moment that there is a perception of inferiority when compared to the old Google Maps on previous iterations of iOS. Google executives didn't explicitly confirm nor deny plans for a native iOS 6 Maps application but commented that, even if there will be such an app, Apple would have to approve it anyways. The images above and below seem to be snapped following the instructions in "Mr. Blurrycam's Guide to Photography" to the letter. They're allegedly snapped off of a very early alpha version of ...
