For those of you that were waiting on an iOS 8+ jailbreak, the Pangu Team released it today. That’s good news, but it is only available for Windows and comes without Cydia. The tool was meant for developers, granting SSH access. Here’s the even better news. Saurik released an updated version of Cydia that can be installed manually after you jailbreak your iOS device.
Right on schedule. Apple released today, as promised, iOS 8.1 – the first major update to iOS 8. The new update brings bug fixes, speed improvements, UI changes, enables continuity features ( text message forwarding and instant hotspot ), opens access to Apple’s iCloud Photo Library beta.
Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior VP of software engineering, has just announced that iOS 8.1 is coming next Monday, and will bring Apple Pay compatibility in tow for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It’ll also bring back the Camera Roll, which should be good news for iPhone users who miss that feature when it was taken away before. Additionally, those who update to the new firmware will get access to the public beta of iCloud Photo Library, which gives you the ability to access the full resolution of all your photos and videos without any downscaling.
Just one week after iOS 8 was launched, Apple releases its first update – iOS 8.0.1. The new updated fixes a number of bugs including an issue that caused custom keyboards to become deselected after entering a passcode, an issue that prevented HealthKit apps from working correctly, it improves Reacability on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, fixes a bug that disabled file uploads in Safari, and brings better support for the Ask to Buy feature in Family Sharing.
iOS 8.0.1 can be downloaded right now OTA ( over the air ) or via iTunes…
