    For those of us who have survived the major firmware cycle a couple of times (or even just once for that matter), you come to find that you "don't really see how much you love an application or tweak until you don't have it (and I paraphrase)." iOS 5 is no different; we are all anxiously awaiting for our favorite applications and tweaks to be updated so we can continue having beautiful and awesome iDevices. One such package that most people ...

    Yesterday, ModMyi reported that a ton of tweaks/applications from the Cydia Store had been updated for iOS 5 support. Some included PreferenceLoader and Activator.

    For the next few days or even weeks, it is inevitable that developers will be on task to get all their packages up to date. With iOS 5 just around the corner, it would be in their best interest to have things ready before that happens. This morning, ...

    A TechCrunch report claims Apple has 1,000 engineers working on the company’s next generation of processors in efforts to lower power usage and size so that form factor no longer becomes an issue during a product's design.

    Apple is notorious for adopting technologies later than others, or benefiting from early access to new processors to meet their stringent design demands. The most recent example ...

    Now that the public release of iOS 5 is just around the corner, as well as the iPhone 4S launch, the jailbreak community is begging the question; when will the next untethered jailbreak come out? Ever since the beginning of the iOS 5 beta cycle, the redsn0w 0.9.x beta has been able to allow users to jailbreak iOS 5, however it has only been tethered. For the hardcore users who will jailbreak no matter what, this may not be an ...

    The iOS developer BigBoss recently released an updated version of SBSettings that is compatible with iOS 5 that I highly recommend for everyone! I personally feel that SBSettings should be on everyone’s list of must-have jailbreak apps as it makes adjusting settings on the fly extremely convenient. Furthermore, if you have enough knowledge, you can even create your own custom toggles for SBSettings as well, that can be installed and accessed by users ...

    According to patent application that is surfacing, Apple seems to be trying to patent the idea of in-app purchases. Lodsys claimed all rights to in app purchases previously and Apple has been paying license fees since the company enabled the feature with iOS 3. The patent application filed by Apple is titled as “In Application Purchasing” and is much more specific than Lodsys’ patents that cover the vague and broad idea of “interacting with customers ...

    iGotYa... HAHA.

    Need another reason for why Jailbreaking your iPhone is worth it? Maybe this is a good reason to jot down on your list.

    Cydia's 'iGotYa' app, which sells for $5.99, helped 31-year-old Erum Malik, a mother of four from Queens New York, re-obtain her stolen iPhone and catch the culprit responsible for the inconvenient incident. It's an alternative to Apple's Find My iPhone app, which is free in the App Store ...
