How To Add Wireless Charging To iPhone 6 Or iPhone 6 Plus

12/19/2014 03:28:00 PM - 0 comments

Have you ever wanted to add wireless charging to your device but been afraid that you would ruin it by messing with the hardware? If so we have some great news and we are about to show you how you can do it easily without messing with your iPhone's hardware. Just keep reading to find out how.

Wireless charging has been around for quite some time now but only a few companies have adopted the technology. Apple has kept away from wireless charging for the time being . The iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus don't support wireless charging but Ewan Spence over at Forbes decided that he was going to test it out and he showed everyone how to add the wireless charging feature to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus without having to open up your device.

We should point out, that this is a workaround and no way a definitive solution. It really is just a proof of concept and you need to be aware that charging your iPhone with non OEM chargers is unsafe and not recommended.

If you decide that you would like to try this out for yourself, you will need a few things before you begin. The first is a Qi Wireless Charging Card which you can find on eBay, just make sure it has the Lightning port. You will also need a Qi compatible wireless charging pad and also recommended but not necessary is a protective case.

To begin you first need to make sure that Wi-Fi syncing for iTunes is set up. Once that is done, plug in the Lightning connector of the Qi Wireless Charging Card to your iPhone. With the card connected, flip it to the back of your iPhone so that the rings on the card are exposed. You will need to secure the card in place and you can do this with some sticky tape. You can also add your protective cover to your iPhone to keep it secure. Once all this is done, just pop in the compatible charging pad into a power source and place your iPhone onto the pad to start charging.

That's it, your iPhone can now be charged wirelessly. We do recommend that you avoid replacing wired charging for your iPhone with this because it is not guaranteed and your iPhone can heat up after hours of wireless charging.

Amazing Kids Toys At Apple Stores This Holiday Season

12/12/2014 11:13:00 AM - 0 comments

It looks like Apple is embracing some great new toys for the holiday season and in this post we want to tell you all about them. Apple knows that getting potential customers through the door at an early age increases the chances of getting them to become customers for the rest of their lives. This is why Apple is always promoting apps that are designed for kids when they have App Store promotions. If you can get the younger public handling iPads and interacting with the App Store, they are more likely to buy iPhones and Macs when they get older.

In App Stores around the world you will now find some kid-focused products including a Barbie doll. This particular Barbie dolls ties in nicely with a free app that allows kids to create and then print new clothes for it. The Barbie doll is going to set you back $50 but kids will love the fact that they can create their own clothes for their special dolls.

Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack for iPad has also been made available on Apple's online store and it is identical to the one that is available in all other toy stores. If you are familiar with the console game, you will know what to expect from this gem and the fact that it is now being made for tablets and the iPad is a real boost this holiday season.

For those who have a little more to spend, there is the $99 WowWee MiP Robot. This is a gesture controlled robot that is capable of fetching and carrying small items as well as dancing or fighting with other robots. The WowWee is a great kids gadget and perfect for your little ones this Christmas.

With Apple promoting products for kids this holiday system and getting them familiar with their iOS ecosystem at a young age we could see more and more kid friendly apps and devices hitting our stores. Kids can already use and control iPads with ease and we can't wait to see how well these toys go down. If you are looking for an unusual gift this Christmas and you are a fan of all things Apple, why not take a look at the kids toys being sold at Apple's online stores.

12/10/2014 03:08:00 PM - 0 comments

Apple have released iOS 8.1.2 and for those looking to jailbreak, there is the TaiG iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak which has also just been released. The great thing about this tool is that it is so easy to use as you will see from our step by step guide below. You can use TaiG to jailbreak any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8.1.2.

TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.1.2 supports:

  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 5s, 5c
  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4s
  • iPad Air 2, iPad Air 1, iPad mini 3, 2, 1, iPad 4, 3, 2
  • iPod touch 5

Before you begin the jailbreak procedure, you need to make sure that you backup your device using iTunes or iCloud. Restore your device to iOS 8.1.2 using iTunes even if you already updated to iOS 8.1.2 via OTA. The next thing you will need to do before you can begin the jailbreak process is to turn off your lock screen passcode and Touch ID. You can do this through Settings > General > Touch ID & Passcode > Turn Passcode off. You also need to turn off the Find My iPhone app as well in Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone. Once you have all this done you are ready to use the TaiG iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak.

Here’s how to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 on Windows:

The first thing to do is to download the TaiG v1.2.0 jailbreak tool for Windows. The next thing you need to do is connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your computer using the USB cable. Once done, start the TaiG tool and when it opens, uncheck the 3K Assistant option and hit the green start button that you see.

TaiG will now start jailbreaking your device and while this is happening, you need to make sure that you don't disconnect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Once it has completed what it's doing, your device will restart and you will find that it is now jailbroken with the latest version of Cydia installed on your main home screen.

That's it, it really is a simple as just pressing a button and allowing the TaiG jailbreak tool to do the rest.

TaiG iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak According to Saurik

12/05/2014 11:43:00 AM - 0 comments

Everyone wants to know about jailbreaking and when a new jailbreak is released users want to know if they can trust it. The latest jailbreak tool to be released is the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool. This is the first untethered jailbreak for this firmware and naturally people were curious. We know very little about the group called TaiG and once the jailbreak was verified, the next question to come about is how trustworthy it is. After all, if you are going to install this on your personal device, you want to know that your information and data is safe.
The question of safety and trustworthyness is very appropriate as you don't want your personal information ending up on some server somewhere. In the case of TaiG, well known jailbreak hacker MuscleNerd has a look and he himself declared that this iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak was safe to us. What we gathered from this is that the jailbreak tool itself isn't installing anything dodgy on your system and that you personal information won't be leaked. This was enough for some people though and many were wondering if the silence of Jay Freeman, aka Saurik, the creator of Cydia was damning.
Jay Freeman is the go to person for everything jailbreaking and he run Cydia, the store where you can get all the best jailbreak tweaks. Well the silence has been broken and Saurik has posted on Reddit giving his general feelings and comments about the TaiG jailbreak. We have a screenshot of what he had to say below so you can read it but we will tell you, that he still has some questions to ask before he will fully support the jailbreak. He has pointed out though, that he is not the best person to be asking about the safety of a jailbreak because this is not his forte. Anyway, have a read through the screenshot below and make your own mind up on this matter.
If after reading the screenshot below and you find that “probably safe” is enough for you and you want to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1, then the TaiG jailbreak tool is the way to go.

MuscleNerd Approves TaiG iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak

12/02/2014 05:11:00 PM - 0 comments

A belated Thanksgiving gift has been released for all jailbreak fanatics. That's right, the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool is now available to download and has been approved by MuscleNerd. If you are looking to get Cydia up and running on iOS 8.1.1 or iOS 8.2 beta then this is for you. Just like Pangu, this is an untethered jailbreak and all you have to do is follow the steps given and apply the jailbreak.

The jailbreak community has been digesting the news of this untethered jailbreak for the past couple of days and many of the trusted jailbreakers have been giving it the once over to make sure that it works and is safe to use. We have just heard today that MuscleNerd has declared that TaiG is safe to use so if you want to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 this could be the tool for you.

A minor update to TaiG has already been released in the form of version 1.0.2, which add the ability to remove the 3K Assistant that can be optionally installed at the point of jailbreak. The 3K Assistant is an application that includes a repository, discussion, and other info relevant to jailbreakers but it is only aimed at Chinese consumers so you probably won't need it. If you have accidentally installed this application and you don't want it, you can install the v1.0.2 version of TaiG which will allow you to easily remove 3K Assistant in Cydia.

Now that TaiG has been given the MuscleNerd stamp of approval, you can now update your firmware to iOS 8.1.1 and jailbreak and add Cydia to your iOS device. If you are using the beta version of iOS 8.2, you can also jailbreak using this tool. This really is great news for those looking for a jailbreak solution but given the timing of TaiG's release, Apple could very well patch it before iOS 8.2 is officially released.

This Apple iOS 9 Concept Contains Some Exciting Features [Video]

11/27/2014 01:05:00 PM - 0 comments

When Apple released iOS 8 to the public they allowed for the use of third-party keyboards and widgets which is amazing. However iOS could offer so much more and Ralph Theodory, a tech enthusiast, has created an amazing video showcasing his concept for iOS 9 which contains some really great features which we couldn't wait to show you. Below you will find a list of some of the features he proposes as well as a video showcasing everything. Let us know what you think.

Search In Settings - This feature would allow users to search for any sort of setting in the Settings app giving fast access without the need to scroll all the way through the listings.

History In Settings - We love this one. Every time you do something in iOS it will be logged so you can undo changes and go back to earlier settings any time you want. Perfect if you make a mistake and need to undo a change.

Settings Everywhere - This is another feature we would love to see implemented in iOS 9. In the app switcher, users can access settings for any app by simply swiping down on it and revealing the settings option.

Siri Spell - This is another very strong contender for future features in our opinion and when you consider that Siri is unable to recognize some words, having it prompt you to spell it out so that it can learn from it would be amazing.

SpringBoard Display Types – Round SpringBoard - Users will be able to switch between three types of SpringBoards: Normal, Zoomed, and the rounded Apple Watch-like home screen.

New Music Features - Again we really like this one. A swipe up from the bottom of the Now Playing screen will allow you to access settings such as “Set as Ringtone”, “Equalizer” and more. No need to go through a menu to do this.

New Video Feed - Another great idea is that the native Video app will now list all feeds from various video streaming apps installed on your iOS device.

Learn - Theodory is looking at Tips evolving into Learn – an app that will teach you everything there is to finding your way around your iPhone and iOS. Pretty useful for new users.

There are lots of other great features to be found in this iOS 9 concept and the best way to view them all is to take a look at the video below. Be sure to let us know what you think and what ones are your favorites in the comments section.

It's Here – iOS 8.1.1 And What We Think

11/18/2014 03:13:00 PM - 0 comments

Apple has released iOS 8.1.1 and first impressions are great. We have better battery life, iCloud Drive, extension ordering and so much more. In today's post we want to share our thoughts on this new firmware update and let you know what to expect. Before we do that, we have to mention that if you want the jailbreak, do not update your firmware because Apple has patched Pangu8 in iOS 8.1.1.

The new iOS 8.1.1 is a really great update and all those problems that people were having with iCloud Drive has been solved. This means no more hit and miss syncing. If you have no desire to jailbreak your device then by all means, go ahead and update to iOS 8.1.1. The fix to the iCloud Drive alone is enough to make it worth it. Asides from this fix, there is a lot more going on with iOS 8.1.1. The problem with share and action extensions has also been fixed and there is no more scrolling to the far right just to clip something to Evernote or to enter a password with 1Password Magic.

Another great thing with this update is battery life on the iPhone 6. Whatever happened with this update, the battery life has been improved on the iPhone 6. You can now multitask, play games, edit images and so much more without having to worry about your battery dying. We tested it here and putting it on charge each night has been enough to see us through the day without having to plug it back in. There are a lot more little tweaks and fixes going on in iOS 8.1.1 and as soon as we have gone through them all or if we find anything else interesting we will be sure to let you know.

We do have to mention once more, that if you are planning on jailbreaking or you are already using the Pangu8 untethered jailbreak for iPhone then under no circumstances should you upgrade to iOS 8.1.1. Apple has patched the exploit that allowed Pangu8 to work so if you do upgrade you will lose your jailbreak and we have no idea when a new one will become available.
