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 [...]
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 [...]
There are quite a lot of people who like to combine the best of both worlds and using Gmail on your iOS-powered device, let it be iPhone or iPad, is just one example. However, the Gmail app for iOS is lacking functionality compared to the Android flavor but there’s an update available in the App Store that tries to close the gap.
Probably the most important addition is Notification Center support with options for banners, alerts and lock screen notifications. You no longer have to open the application to check for e-mails, you can finally be notified if you have one right [...]
So far, May has seen swift progress towards the release of a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 devices. We quickly moved from talk of the hypothetical, to that of real exploits, and late last week got a look at just such a jailbreak running on the 2012 iPad. If you’ve been wondering what all that means when it comes to the actual public availability of a jailbreak tool, pod2g has some new posts up on his blog to explain where the project’s at and point out some current limitations.
The good news is that pod2g’s got his trusted cadre of iOS tinkerers [...]
Skype is an excellent way to keep in touch with your friends, co-workers and family especially if you’re using it over WiFi or an unlimited data plan, resulting in free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you have the application installed on your iOS device, you might want to update to the latest version.
Open up the iTunes App Store on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPad and install the refresh. It brings a new feature: the ability to move own video preview when in a call. Additionally, the app now auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down, accessibility has been improved, [...]
Subsidized smartphone prices represent a deal struck between consumers and the carriers: you commit to use their wireless services for a prescribed period of time, and in turn get a nice chunk of change knocked-off the upfront price of your handset. Once that time’s up, the idea is that your monthly service bills have offset the carrier’s earlier investment, leaving the two of you square. At least, that’s the way it’s supposed to work, but not all carriers are happy to call things even and let you do what you want with your phone once your contract is fulfilled. [...]

Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple’s iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else).
A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It “fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices”. Additionally, it “addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are [...]
