A new jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 has been released in beta form.
“Yalu” is the first jailbreak to support the iPhone 7 and you can get your hands on it now, but users are advised to wait for more stable releases.
Although Apple released new MacBooks and redesigned MacBook Pros this year, one area of the Mac lineup could still use some attention: the desktop. The iMac was last refreshed in October 2015, the Mac Mini was last refreshed in October 2013, and the Mac Pro dates back to December 2013.
In an internal memo obtained by TechCrunch, Apple CEO Tim Cook briefly addressed the importance of Mac desktops in the lineup. He did so to quell skepticism in the media and possibly among Apple's own staff.
Without the MacOS update released this week, Apple’s disk encryption can be easily defeated by connecting a specially crafted device to a locked Macbook.
The attack is possible because devices connected over Thunderbolt can access the computer’s RAM directly before the OS is started through the direct memory access (DMA) feature. The DMA mechanism is typically used by disk drive controllers, graphics cards, network cards, and sound cards because accessing the memory through the CPU would otherwise keep the processor busy and unavailable for other tasks.
Apple will introduce a completely redesigned iPhone next year. According to multiple reports, the iPhone 8 that’s coming next September should feature a curved OLED display that will occupy most of the front and sides of the handset. Apple will also abandon its signature home button. That means all the features of the current home button will still be present even though the physical button is gone. Most importantly, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor present in the home button will stick around, finding a new home beneath the display itself.
Apple on Tuesday pulled the latest Apple Watch operating system update, watchOS 3.1.1, from circulation after a launch earlier this week that rendered an unknown number of consumer units unusable.
Apple Watch owners attempting to upgrade to watchOS 3.1.1 through the dedicated Watch app on iOS will find watchOS 3.1 as the current version, meaning Apple has temporarily disabled the point update after its release on Monday.
