TaiG, the Chinese jailbreaking team that has been thanked in Apple patch notes for exposing iOS vulnerabilities, has just released a new jailbreak tool for Mac that will allow you to run unsigned code on any iOS 8.4 device. Hurrah!
The process of jailbreaking is so simple, anyone can do it.
Apple is hoping to lure developers away from the temptations of the URL scheme, which Twitter infamously made use of last year to track what apps are installed on your iOS device, To do that, they’ve introduced a new alternative in Universal Links, which can direct users right to the relevant content within your app, using just a standard web link preceded by either http:// or https://.
iOS developer Nicholas Allegra, better known by his handle "comex" within the jailbreaking community, shared a short video on Twitter that shows a web browser running on the Apple Watch. The fifteen-second clip shows Allegra tapping, panning and zooming on the Google homepage on the Apple Watch, but the functionality is limited as to be expected because of the small screen size and lack of an on-screen keyboard.
Security experts have warned that 2,000 Android and iOS apps are still vulnerable to the much publicized FREAK flaw over a fortnight after it was first disclosed, exposing billions of users to data loss.
FireEye researchers scanned 10,985 Google Play Android apps with more than one million downloads each and found 1,228 (11.2%) were still vulnerable to FREAK.
iOS 8.2 has been in development for several months now, and today Apple is formally releasing the update to the public. It's available as an over-the-air update or through iTunes for any device running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus; all iPads except the first-generation model; and the fifth-generation iPod Touch.
