While we eagerly wait for the jailbreak for iOS 7 and iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.4, the Cydia developers have been busy releasing some cool jailbreak tweaks.
Apex, a jailbreak tweak developed by A3Tweaks falls in that category.
Apex is an interesting alternative to folders. It allows you to group apps in a unique way.
We’re seeing a number of our readers reporting activation error, it is most probably because you had installed iOS 7 beta 6, which expires on October 6, which means it has probably expired or will shortly expiry depending on your timezone.
To fix the activation error you need to update your iOS device to iOS 7.0.2, which is the latest iOS software update.
Please note it is not possible to downgrade back to iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 as Apple has stopped signing the firmware file (except if you’ve an iPhone 4).
A YouTube video thrown up by members of German security research firm SR Labs has shown that the convenient access to a device’s Airplane Mode via the new Control Center pane could offer assistance to hackers looking to exploit the system.
One of the most celebrated of the many great new features of iOS 7 is the Control Center, which offers a rich selection of functions in one convenient location. By performing a simple swipe gesture, the Control Center can even be accessed via the lock screen, but even though iOS 7 has only been around for just over two weeks, this has already proven problematic.
Ever since Apple launched the iPhone in 2007, there have a number of reasons to jailbreak iOS.
Even though Apple has added features to iOS such as copy and paste, Custom Wallpaper, multitasking, Notification Center, FaceTime over cellular etc, that were only possible if you had jailbroken your iOS device, the jailbreak community has continued to release some amazing tweaks and apps that still make it quite compelling to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Apple released iOS 7 few days back, which includes a number of features such as Control Center, improved app switcher, Dynamic Wallpapers, ability to block calls and messages, live clock etc, that many would say were inspired by jailbreak apps and tweaks.
Apple’s iOS is a very popular, generally stable mobile OS, but in terms of functionality, is still rather limited. The jailbreak scene has ensured that, at least for those willing to release the Cupertino’s shackles, said constraints can be removed, and one of the areas in which jailbreakers have reaped the biggest benefits is in messaging.
The likes of BiteSMS have changed the face of messaging on iOS, and now, another entrant purports to make the process of managing SMS just that little bit more pleasurable. It’s called Anemo, and you can catch the details after the leap!
Anemo doesn’t only make replying to messages a helluva lot easier than ever before, but does so in a rather elegant, beautiful fashion. The best tweaks are those that seem native, as if they were built by Apple and always meant to be there, and Anemo has this in spades.
