There are few people who are in the know of how sideloading basically works. Those who are trying to find an app outside of the traditional (and official) stores will find third-party marketplaces and entities like APKMirror useful. iOS users who wanted to sideload apps have traditionally gone to jailbreaking to get to app markets.
One such marketplace, vShare, recently got hold of an Enterprise App distribution certificate, signed by Apple. These certificates allow companies to operate their own app stores, typically for employees to use. vShare is marketing itself now as [...]
Halloween approaches. You’re meeting up with friends at the bar, all dressed up for some disorienting fun. So disorienting, you might drop your phone off somewhere strange. If some swiper is so inclined, he or she will have a better-than-half chance of cracking into your phone and compromising your data. Statistically, at least.
Mobile security firm Skycure is out with its Q3 threat survey. We can’t say that surveyors didn’t threaten anyone in order for them to take the survey, because we didn’t ask.
In all seriousness, the first startling factoid [...]
Apple introduced native multi-pane app tasking to iOS 9 before Android will. Right now, though, the feature’s availability is just about as limited as what you might see from a couple of OEMs’ Android devices — namely, Samsung, LG and Sony flagships. So, if you can’t see yourself with one of the latest iPads in order to get Split View, Picture-in-Picture and/or Slide Over, what can you do?
Well, if you’ve jailbroken your iOS 9 or above device (yes, iPads and iPhones alike), you can hop into Cydia and install Medusa.
We’ve been tracking some major bugs with Apple Music as it has rapidly grown its user base. But while plenty of attention has been on the streaming music platform and its viability (much less the viability of the whole streaming industry at-large), we can’t forget that the iPhone holds a multitude of features. Some of them weren’t intended to be exploited for jailbreaking purposes. It seems that Apple has gotten on the case with the iOS 8.4.1 update.
If you’re an Apple mobile device user and haven’t gotten the rundown of what was patched for Apple [...]
Let’s face it, Jailbreaking isn’t as popular as it used to be, and that’s mainly because a lot of what you couldn’t do with your iPhone so many years ago, you can now do as Apple has polished its mobile operating system more and more. That said, there is still a vibrant community of hackers out there working hard, and even though iOS 8 is still months away from being launched, there is already progress in getting it Jailbroken.
Famous hacker I0n1c tweeted yesterday that “initial tests show that iOS 8 beta does not fix anything,” which we assume refers to [...]
