Download Free Apps Without Needing Your Password Setting In iOS 8.3

4/16/2015 04:38:00 PM - 0 comments

In this post we want to tell you how you can enable the iOS 8.3 App Store free apps password setting feature so you can save time when it comes to your downloads. The latest update from Apple, iOS 8.3, arrived last week and brings with it a new App Store specific feature that allows users to download free apps without having to put in their password. This is called “Password Settings” and we are going to show you how you can activate it and get it working to your advantage.

This new setting in iOS 8.3 was first spotted while it was still in beta stage and our team noticed that this neat feature could be activated so that it would allow free apps to be downloaded without any kind of verification required. Now we know that putting your thumb or finger over the Touch ID sensor isn’t that difficult but this feature is all about free apps and seems to be both convenient and safe. You don’t have to worry about your kids downloading paid apps or in-app purchases without your permission. This feature only works with free apps.

In order to use this feature you have to be running iOS 8.3. To activate it you will need to go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode. There you will find an option labelled iTunes & App Store. You need to toggle this to off. Come back out of your settings. Now when you go back into your settings, just go to the iTunes & Apps Store pages and beneath your Apple ID you will find the Password Settings feature. Go into this feature and beneath the Purchases & In-App Purchases menu, activate one of the two options that are available. From there you will be able to toggle your Free Downloads option to what you want it to be.

To be honest, if makes very little sense to have to enter your password or use the Touch ID every time you want to download a free app. By turning on this setting in the new iOS 8.3 firmware update you won’t have to. Remember that this only works for free apps so you don’t have to worry about anyone running up your bills on your account.


Jailbreak Status Update for iOS 8.3, iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3

4/14/2015 04:27:00 PM - 0 comments

For all those who follow the jailbreak scene, you will probably want to know that Apple has patched the exploits used in Pangu, TaiG and PP jailbreak tools that have been used in previous jailbreaks for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The full details of what this means for the jailbreak community is outlined in this post.

If you are an avid jailbreaker, you already know that you should avoid any new iOS build until it has been deemed safe by an established member of the jailbreaking community. For the benefit of those that might not be familiar with everything, you must not update to any of the newer releases of Apple’s iOS. This includes iOS 8.1.3, iOS 8.2 and the latest iOS 8.3.

From the moment Apple released iOS 8.1.3 and again with iOS 8.2 the exploits were being looked at. With the most recent release iOS 8.3, Apple has now patch most of the exploits that were required to make the Pangu8, TaiG, and PP jailbreaks work. What this literally means, is that if you have been looking to jailbreaking your device, you are advised not to update to iOS 8.1.3, 8.2, or 8.3.

Apple have even taken things a little further than what they usually do by outlining all the exploits that they have patched in iOS 8.1.3, 8.2 and 8.3 in its support article and they even went as far as naming the Pangu and TaiG teams for using them. Apple have also patched exploits discovered by i0n1c aka Stefan Esser. The full list of exploits that have been patched along with information on what they do and who has used them can be read in the Apple support document which makes for interesting reading if you want to know more of what goes on behind the scenes in operating software.

If the confirmation from Apple wasn’t enough, MuscleNerd has also taken to Twitter to remind his followers to steer clear of the latest iOS updates. So what does this means for Apple device users? Well if you have been using an older jailbroken version of iOS 8 or even iOS 7, you are going to have to stick with what you’ve got for the time being especially if you want to keep using jailbreak tweaks and apps from Cydia until a new jailbreak took is made available for iOS 8.1.3, iOS 8.2, and iOS 8.3.

It really does look like Apple is taking a stand against jailbreaking and really putting in the effort to make sure that their iOS is impenetrable. What do you think? Do you think jailbreaking will become a thing of the past with future iOS releases? Let us know in the comments below.


Apple Patches Another TaiG Exploit In Latest Update For iOS 8.3 Jailbreak

4/10/2015 10:00:00 AM - 0 comments

If you are one of the many people out there who are looking to jailbreak iOS 8.3 untethered on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, we are afraid that the news we have today is not that great. It seems that Apple has fixed a lot of security holes in their latest iOS update including those used by TaiG for jailbreaks. We have all the details in this post so keep reading for more information.

Apple released iOS 8.3 earlier this week to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. One of the most striking things that we have noticed with this update is the size of the changelog. The number of bug fixes and performance enhancements is amazing. While bug fixes do tend to be a good thing, particularly from a security aspect, they often stop the progress of the jailbreaking community. There has been a grand total of almost 40 security patches in iOS 8.3 and one of these is the exploit that was used by the TaiG team. With this exploit and one in iOS 8.2 patched, things really don’t look too hot for the jailbreak community. There was such a strong start that saw every version of iOS jailbroken up to iOS 8.1.2 but it now looks like Apple have taken the lead and hold the upper hand when it comes to control over their software.

MuscleNerd took to Twitter to report that the latest iOS update contains no fewer than 39 security fixes, rivalling the leap from iOS 7.x to iOS 8 in terms of sheer volume. However, while iOS 8.0 was jailbreakable from the go, iOS 8.3 is not and MuscleNerd has advised all his followers and anyone looking to jailbreak to steer clear of the iOS 8.3 update for the time being.

We have seen Pangu, PP, and TaiG picking away at Apple’s firmware but it seems that the Cupertino Company is staying rigid and keeping on top of things from a security point of view. For the moment it really does like a jailbreak is highly unlikely and iOS 8.3 is looking really strong. Apple’s iOS 8.3 also includes a patch on a vulnerability used by the TaiG jailbreak team so the likes of these guys working their magic once again seem highly unlikely and it could be quite a while before we see a jailbreak at all. We will of course keep you updated on any information we receive but for now, if you want a working jailbreak in the future, don’t update to iOS 8.3.

Dual Core iPhone 6 Demolishes Octa-Core Galaxy S6 In Graphics Performance

4/03/2015 02:45:00 PM - 0 comments

Samsung and Apple, there always seems to be an ongoing battle. Some people prefer the Samsung Galaxy device while others prefer the iPhone and there is nothing to change the opinion of these people. According to a newly published set of test results, the Galaxy S6 with its octa-core processor finds itself outdone by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with their dual-core chips and 1GB of RAM when it comes to graphics performance and we have all the details in this post.

The Galaxy S6 is no doubt the best Android smartphone around in both design and performance. The camera on this smartphone is brilliant as is the super sharp quad-HD display that gives the phone a pixel density of 577ppi. The problem is that the overkill of a display is dragging down the performance of the phone when doing graphic intensive tasks.

AppleInsider conducted a series of performance tests on the Galaxy S6, and noted that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are clearly ahead of this Samsung device. All graphics performance tests based on various benchmarks show the significant hit that the Galaxy S6 is taking despite the fancy spec sheet that the smartphone comes with.

Android devices are usually marketed and pitched as powerful and fantastic devices but this has never seemed to threaten or out-perform the iPhone or iPad. Samsung has pushed screen technology ahead of its own processor capabilities in the case of the Galaxy S6 and this has resulted in extremely poor performance in high definition. Interestingly though, it is not just the Samsung that has taken a hit from packing in more pixels in their display, the iPhone 6 Plus resulted in graphics that were in some cases slower at their native resolution than 2013's iPhone 5s.

You can see the results of all the tests on the AppleInsider website but the conclusion is that Samsung has made bad engineering choices with the S6 model. They have opted to push better displays over key internal hardware, such as the GPU and CPU. Since the screen is bound to push more pixels around, the Galaxy S6 falls short in terms of performance when compared to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that come with Apple's second generation 64-bit A8 chip. This result is seen even though the Samsung comes with 3GB of RAM. Apple wins in the display stakes as well as having the advantage of optimizing its software according to its hardware giving it the edge over everyone else in the industry.

Apple devices have always been in a league of their own when it comes to mobile gaming and the recent Metal technology that has been included with iOS 8 is really pushing the boundaries of mobile graphics. We do feel that Apple's decision to stick to a pixel density that doesn't overkill will continue to pay off for them against the likes of the Galaxy S6. We would love to hear your comments on this and how you feel in the comments section below.


Images Of The 4-inch iPhone 6C Leaked

4/01/2015 03:16:00 PM - 0 comments

Photos of what claims to be the 4-inch iPhone 6c have been leaked online. There have been a lot of rumors about the 4-inch iPhone going around since the launch of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, but we haven't received any concrete evidence of this as yet. These new photos that have been leaked do however seem to suggest that an iPhone 6C model is on the way and our post today will explain more.

We had all come to the conclusion that the iPhone 6C was a mere fantasy and that it was never going to manifest. Now we have reports jumping out at us that suggest otherwise. Some of the sources are pretty confident that such as device is in the pipeline and is being targeted towards female users as Apple attempts to grab an even bigger share of the smartphone market by offering size variations in its smartphone products.

An online parts retailer has just published photos of what looks to be an iPhone 5c housing, but with a few tweaks in design. The source is also suggesting that the housing is in fact that of the rumored iPhone 6c. The new 4-inch iPhone will apparently retain the polycarbonate body and candy colors along with the same shape as the iPhone 5c, but the LED flash cut-out is now oval, suggesting that this model will have dual-tone LED flash – like the one found on the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and 5s. The other major change can be found at the bottom of the casing which now sports a multiple pair of speaker grill holes unlike the single row found on the iPhone 5c.

According to reports that have been leaked, the iPhone 6c is likely to sport some high end specs this time around including the iconic Touch ID fingerprint sensor, an NFC chip for supporting Apple Pay, and an improved camera. It is also being speculated that the iPhone 6c could include a new A9 processor, but given that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are running an A8, it is unlikely that this will be the case. Judging by what the iPhone 5c was, then it's highly likely that the iPhone 6c will be an iPhone 5s repackaged in a plastic body.

We still have no real evidence that the iPhone 6c will ever see the light of day but we are sure that plenty more rumors and leaks will appear as September gets even closer.

iOS 8.3 Lets You Download Free Apps Without Entering Your Password

3/24/2015 05:02:00 PM - 0 comments

There is a great new feature that has been discovered in iOS 8.3. This little addition means that you will have the option of configuring how often the App Store or the iTunes Store asks you for your password. This is only an option for people making purchases and it could turn out to be a great option. How many times do you get frustrated with having to keep entering your password when buying something? Well with this little addition that has been found with iOS 8.3, this could be a thing of the past.

There is also a new option available whereby users can disable password requirements completely for any free downloads that they may want to buy. The option to change how often a password is required isn't really all that new, but its move to a new menu inside the App Store settings is a notable one. In these settings you will find a new choice that you can make whereby you can disable passwords for free downloads. This is something that we know a lot of users are going to find very useful and it is a setting that most people are really going to welcome.

At the moment, it looks as if the appearance of this option depends on the App Store you are using. This could suggest that this may be something that is available in some countries but not in others. This could also change as the betas roll on, but is also likely that Apple is adapting its stance on the requirement of a password for free downloads depending on its audience.

We don't know when iOS 8.3 is going to release and there hasn't been much talk about it. The big release so far has been iOS 8.2 with the added Apple Watch support so we could in fact see iOS 8.3 being a release that is a little bit quieter. That is unless something particularly exciting gets added in a later beta that is really worth talking about. We do feel that this little addition that we have discussed today in relation to passwords is something that is worth talking about and if we find anything else we will be sure to let you know.

Other additions to iOS 8.3 that we already know about are the new Siri ability to automatically use the speakerphone and the updated emoji. That's all we know of note so far but as the betas are released we will be keeping you updating on any gems that we find.


Apple’s Free App Of The Week Is Dark Echo

3/20/2015 01:16:00 PM - 0 comments

We love Apple's Free App of the Week deal and this week is no different. This week's app is Dark Echo, a sound-based horror game that only made its debut on iOS last month. Some of the app that end up being the App of the Week can in fact be a little stale and not that great, but Dark Echo is definitely one that you will want to download now while you can and if you keep reading this post we will tell you why.

Normally priced at $1.99, Dark Echo is free this week. The game uses sound in a way that we haven't see before. If you like atmospheric games then you will love this and it will take things to a whole new level. There are 80 different levels to play through in this title, so you will be getting plenty of entertainment value if you can manage to find your way around in the dark.

In this game you are left to explore the world using nothing but sound, but the catch is that the same sound is also attracting something very unpleasant to you too. The game description says it so much better: “Trapped in darkness, you must use visualized sound to guide your way through threatening environments. The sounds you create will bounce off obstacles, revealing the shape of the surrounding world. It won't be long before your only way of sensing the world attracts a horrifying evil the devours both sound and souls.” Sounds terrifying doesn't it, and in today's gaming world this is something that you will definitely enjoy. It's different too.

Dark Echo has been received really well so far even at full price, and now that it's free, it should be a game that is part of your iOS collection. One of the great things about this game is that it doesn't feature and in-app purchases, which isn't always the case when games are part of the App of the Week promotion. If you download Dark Echo now, you get a completely free game with nothing whatsoever to buy. It is available right now on the App Store so be sure to check it out today while you still can.


Apple Watch Receives FCC Clearance And Is All Set For Sale

3/18/2015 02:32:00 PM - 0 comments

As you already know, the Apple Watch is to go on sale next month. We have just received word that the device has now received FCC clearance and it is all set to hit the retail stores in the United States next month. Pre-orders are to begin on the 11th of April with shipping commencing on the 24th of April.

All electronic devices must now pass through the FCC to ensure that they comply with every communication standard set forth by the regulating authority. The Apple Watch has now received the green stamp of approval giving us a clear signal that this latest Apple device is on track to complete their plans to sell their first ever wearable.

Now that the Apple Watch has passed through the FCC doesn't necessarily mean that it is ready for sale worldwide. Apple still has to get approval from a number of different regulating authorities before getting the official thumbs up for sale in different countries. Apple made things clear on their website regarding their FCC approval which said that: this devices has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

Now that FCC approval has been received, the above statement has been removed from the website. The Apple Watch is all set to now go on pre-order on the 10th of April with retail availability on the 24th of April. You can now officially get excited about getting your hands on the first Apple wearable device.
