How To Prepare For iOS 9 Public Beta Release The Right Way

Written by  
Apple announced that it would be releasing a public beta of iOS 9 some time in July, and with us now firmly within that timeframe all eyes are on Cupertino as people wait for the big switch to be flicked, enabling public beta testers to start their downloads. Hopefully, they won’t have to wait too much longer.
While the wait is ongoing, it may be worth going through a few housekeeping steps before you start installing any iOS 9 betas, some to get ready for the update itself, some for in case things go awry and others for if you need to take action at a later date.

So, with iOS 9 set to go into public beta sooner rather than later, let us see what you should be doing in order to be ready.
Sign Up For iOS 9 Public Beta
Screen-Shot-2015-06-10-at-12.09.58-AM
This one might seem obvious, but it’s an easy step to miss during all the excitement. Head on over to our post that already details the sign-up process, and make sure you’re actually registered for the public iOS 9 beta to avoid disappointment when it finally does go live.
Backup Your Device Using iTunes / iCloud
Make sure that any devices you are going to install the public beta on are nicely backed up, just in case. You can do that by either using iCloud on the device or iTunes on a computer.
iCloud:
IMG_0007
The iCloud way is easier and quicker as far as we are concerned, and you will find the option in Settings > iCloud > Backup. Over here make sure the ‘iCloud Backup’ toggle is turned on. Also hit the ‘Back Up Now’ button to get things into momentum right away.
iTunes:
Alternatively, you can use iTunes to back up your iOS device as well.
Step 1: Connect your device to your PC or Mac and launch iTunes.
Step 2: Select your iOS device from the top left hand corner.

Step 3: Under the ‘Backups’ section select ‘This Computer, and then click on the ‘Back Up Now’ button.

Restore to iOS 8.4
It’s best to update to iOS 9 beta from the current shipping version of iOS, which right now is iOS 8.4 Download that and let your iPhone or iPad update accordingly.
Save SHSH Blobs
They may not be of much use right now, but saving your SHSH blobs using an app likeTinyUmbrella might not be a bad idea in case they become useful in the future for downgrading since iOS 8.4 is the latest jailbreakable firmware. If you are someone who don’t care about jailbreaks, you can skip this step.
Sit Back and Relax
Sit back, relax, and wait for Apple to give everything the big thumbs up. If the second developer beta is anything to go by, the public beta will be surprisingly stable.

Apple Silently Killed Off Home Sharing For Music In iOS 8.4 Update

Written by  
iOS is continuously being worked on, supported, updated and rolled out to compatible devices immediately the world over. Such was the case with this week’s release of iOS 8.4. However, it seems that has Apple provided a significant update with one hand, it used the other to silently remove a popular feature that has been utilized by many users all around the world – Home Sharing for music content.
Home Sharing, which essentially allows users to use an iOS device connected to a WiFi network to access and share iTunes content like movies, TV shows, videos, music from a Mac or PC, is a longstanding feature provided by Apple that has been used regularly by millions but rarely picks up praise for the power that it provides. It is most definitely one of the most under-appreciated features provided by the Cupertino company, but as of iOS 8.4 it looks as though Home Sharing of music content is no longer available. It has been silently removed by Apple without any prior warning to those it could affect. Home Sharing for all other type of content is still supported.
Home Sharing main
The introduction of iOS 8.4 will largely be remembered as the first time the new Apple Music streaming service was made available on iOS devices. However, if you take a second to look through the extremely active Apple forums then it looks like a lot of users around the world will remember 8.4 as the version of iOS that did away with a staple feature that had been present since iOS 4.3. Those users are no longer able to turn an old iPad or iPod touch into a music streaming device linked up to a pair of speakers that accessed iTunes music from a computer. Sad times.
Home Sharing
Rather than make a song and dance about the removal of the feature, it seems that Apple has chosen to silently update its Home Sharing support page to reflect the change. It’s also worth noting that this change for music content doesn’t yet affect the Apple TV. Without any official word from Apple on the decision to remove the Home Sharing for music feature, it’s hard to say exactly why it had to be the case. However, with the introduction of Apple Music in iOS 8.4 it’s logical to hypothesize that Apple’s licensing agreement with labels and content providers doesn’t allow for music to be streamed over WiFi. Hence the removal.
But hey, we still have Home Sharing for video to mull over, so all is not lost just yet.

Download Free App Of The Week From iOS App Store And Google Play [$8 Value]

Written by  
It’s that time again, where both Apple and Google choose an app to be made free for 7 days, with the app then returning to its previous price once the offer is over. Over the months and years we have seen some truly excellent apps represented as part of Apple’s free App of the Week, with Google putting its food into the water just recently. Both Google and Apple have announced the apps that they chose for their respective app store offers this week, with both likely to prove popular.
Android-iOS-free-main.jpg
On the Android front, fans of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends will be pleased to learn that a game featuring the blue steam engine is now available for free via Google Play. Free for a week and normally costing $4.99, Thomas’s Musical Day For Percy has players exploring Sodor as Thomas gets ready to put on a musical show. If that doesn’t sound awesome, then we don’t know what happened to your childhood!
Screenshot_20150703-051009
As for iPhone and iPad fans, Apple’s free App of the Week is Star Walk 2, and usually costs $2.99. Available to download form the App Store for free right now, this app teaches people about the stars using up to date charts and is described as a “next-generation tool for not only learning the exact position of stars, planets, constellations, comets, ISS, satellites, star clusters, nebulae and meteor showers in the night sky.”
IMG_0001
Both apps are worth their asking price, but when apps like these become free for a limited time then we recommend downloading them without delay. Star Walk 2 is a great little app for learning about the night sky, and Thomas’s Musical Day For Percy is great fun for both kids and big kids alike. If you grew up with Thomas as a kid, then all the more reason to download the app today.
Star Walk 2 for iOS can be downloaded directly from the App Store here, whereas Thomas’s Musical Day For Percy for Android can be grabbed directly from the Google Play here.

Mimir Brings Picture-In-Picture Style Multitasking For Apps On iOS

Written by  
Multitasking on iOS in its current state is mundane at best, but with iOS 9, Apple is lifting the bar a little higher on the iPad, bringing true multitasking to the fore when the firmware goes live for the general public this fall. The problem with Apple’s feature is that it is exclusive to iPads only, this is where a new jailbreak tweak called Mimir comes in.
Mimir basically brings true Picture-in-Picture (PiP) style multitasking for apps on both iPhone and iPad. Yes, Apple is bringing PiP to iPads in iOS 9, and there has been a tweak namedVideoPane that does PiP too but the problem with both of them is that they are limited to videos only. Mimir works with both apps and videos!
IMG_1993
Once installed, simply launch any app of your choice, and then drag down from the top left hand corner of the display – default gesture which can be changed later in Settings – and you’ll get a Picture-in-Picture style view of the running app.
2
Once your app is in a PiP state, you can drag it around on the display by holding the status bar. You even have the option to resize the app window if you so wish using pinch to zoom gestures and send the app in maximize or minimize mode if you like. Want to view the PiP app in landscape mode? No problem, with a simple tap of a button, you can do just that.
3
With the app of your choice floating up front in PiP mode, you can do whatever you like in the background. Such as scroll through your pages of apps on home screen, or launch a new app and so on. Both, the app in the background and PiP app in the foreground, are active which means you can interact with both at the same time.
But wait, there’s more!
You can also have multiple apps in PiP mode, all active at the same time. Pretty awesome! This is what sets Mimir apart from other tweaks like Multify.
Mimir is available to download right now from the BigBoss repo in Cydia and costs $3.99. That price might seem a bit too steep for some, but judging by the power it grants users when it comes to multitasking, it seems fairly justified.

Written by  
SOURCE:REDMONDPIE
Here’s how to fix TaiG iOS 8.4/8.3 jailbreak errors like stuck at 20%, 60%, 1101, 1102 1103 etc which you might encounter during the jailbreak process on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Springtomize 3 For iOS 8.4 Released

Written by  
The popular jailbreak tweak Springtomize 3 has just been updated with full support for iOS 8.4, and it is immediately available to download right now from the Cydia store.
Ask any seasoned jailbreaker about their list of favorite tweaks and apps from Cydia, Springtomize will more often than not make it into the list. The reason for it is simple – the amount of customization, freedom and power Springtomize 3 offers is second to none.
Springtomize 3 main
For those who still don’t know what Springtomize is all about: Springtomize jailbreak tweak allows users to alter and customize just about any part of iOS, From the Home Screen, Lock Screen, dock to Control Center, folders, status bar and much more, there’s very little that Springtomize can’t do. There are a bunch of options to choose from. In short: Springtomize 3 is the one tweak to rule them all in the customization department.
Where users previously had to download a number of tweaks to get the setup they wanted, Springtomize is now that one solution they need to tweak iOS any which way they like.

The package has now been updated on Cydia to fully support the recently released TaiG iOS 8.4 jailbreak, ensuring that users get the latest and greatest customization options out there in the jailbreak world, regardless of the version of iOS they may be running.
If you already own Springtomize 3, you will get the update for iOS 8.4 for free. If you’re a first-time buyer, then you will have to stump out $2.99 to get the ball rolling, and trust us, you won’t regret this buy one bit.

The tweak is available to download directly from the BigBoss repo in Cydia and currently supports all iPhones, iPads and iPod touches running iOS 8.4.

Fix iMessage Activation Issue On iOS 8.3 After TaiG Jailbreak

Written by  
The world of iMessage can be a murky one when trying to get it to work with whichever phone number you have. Changing SIM cards, iPhones or especially actual phone numbers can cause all kinds of misery as far as iMessage and its activation is concerned. Specifically, it just refuses to work and iMessage ends up not knowing what your phone number is or worse, thinks it does and iMessages just disappear into the ether.
Quite a number of people with jailbroken devices are facing such a problem at the moment on iOS 8.3 after jailbreaking with the newly released TaiG tool. The issue is not necessarily TaiG’s but rather iMessage’s, because we have seen such problems on non-jailbroken iPhones over the years as well. Apple just seems to struggle with the whole idea of iMessage phone number activation for whatever reason. Luckily though, getting the whole shebang to work again may be just a few steps away, thanks to a solution provided by Reddit user iPodZombie. You’ll need to be jailbroken though, so this is probably only useful to you if a recent TaiG update has gone awry.
Messages.png
Here are the steps you are going to want to follow:
Step 1: Enter Safe Mode. This can be done in a variety of ways. You can set an Activator action to do this, or simply use tweak like MultiBoot or Power Tap to enter Safe Mode.

Step 2: Once in Safe Mode, head into the Settings -> Messages and toggle iMessage off and then back on. You will notice the device authenticate and activate. You’re nearly done.
IMG_2674
Step 3: Now, scroll down to the Send & Receive area and you should see your phone number selected. Add any email addresses you want to use with iMessage here.
Step 4: Exit Safe Mode.
Step 5: Test iMessage. It should now work just fine, including with your iPhone’s phone number.
And that’s it, you’re all done. It may not help if you are suffering from iMessage activation issues on a non-jailbroken device, but if iOS 8.3 is causing problems after using TaiG’s jailbreak then this little guide may just be what you need to get messaging again.

iOS 8.4 Jailbreak Status Update

Written by  
When the TaiG team released jailbreak for iOS 8.3 last week, many, wondered what the wisdom was in releasing a jailbreak so close to a major new release of iOS being made available.
With iOS 8.4 and Apple Music release just around the corner, has TaiG shown its hand too early by releasing a version of a jailbreak that could be rendered obsolete when the latest version of iOS becomes available in a matter of hours from now?
IMG_1866
While there’s no 100% authentic confirmation yet of TaiG 2.x jailbreak working on iOS 8.4, there are some mixed reports doing the rounds.
The first guy to report about TaiG working on iOS 8.4 beta 4 was @iOShXr on Twitter. He claimsthat current TaiG tool works just fine on the latest beta of 8.4 as long as you make the complex hex edits required for it to work. Someone has went as far as detailing the wholeprocedure on how you can make TaiG work on iOS 8.4 beta 4 and even iOS 9 beta, although those who tried the procedure didn’t find any success with it. And even if it works for real, there’s no way to know whether it will continue to work on the final version of iOS 8.4.
There are also some who claim that at least one of the iOS 8.3 jailbreak exploits, which depends on a race condition in TaiG, has been patched in iOS 8.4 beta 4. If that’s the case, then TaiG was definitely right in getting the jailbreak out before Apple released the final version of iOS 8.4.
TaiG team is staying mum on the issue. They will probably confirm only after inspecting the final release of iOS 8.4.
Back in April, i0n1c was the first to jailbreak iOS 8.4. He demonstrated his jailbreak, likely using different exploits than the ones used in TaiG for iOS 8.3, on an iPhone 6 running iOS 8.4 beta 1. But will he release his jailbreak in case TaiG’s ones are really patched in 8.4? Probably not.
It is of course true that Apple will be monitoring its big beta releases of iOS, and when everything goes live, there is every possibility that Apple will have filled whichever security hole the current public jailbreak tool TaiG 2.x is using.
Apple’s chances of getting a jailbreak patch into iOS 8.4 final release in a matter of days from TaiG’s release last week are still slim however, though it’s a fairly safe bet that it will do just that in a future release of the software. Once a jailbreak is out in the wild, it is effectively burned, with Apple able to reverse engineer it and effectively block whatever security breach made the jailbreak possible in the first place.
If there is one thing Apple likes to do, it’s stop jailbreak tools from working. It may be in the name of security, but that doesn’t stop it from being irritating to those who like to jailbreak their iPhones and iPads.
Cydia 8.3
We recommend you to update to iOS 8.3 if you haven’t already even if you don’t plan to jailbreak yet. If you care about jailbreaking, follow our guide here to know everything about iOS 8.3 jailbreak and the upcoming iOS 8.4 update and how it might affect jailbreakers.

MyWi 8 For iOS 8.3 Released

Written by  
Well known jailbreak tweak MyWi 8 has just been updated to support the newly jailbreakable firmware iOS 8.3 on all iPhones and cellular iPads. Now up to version 8.03.02, it is still one of the most popular Cydia packages around.
While iOS now supports tethering of data connections with its ‘Personal Hotspot’ feature, what sets MyWi apart from the native offering in iOS is its ability to enable WiFi-to-WiFi tethering. This is called WiFi Sharing and it allows you to rebroadcast the WiFi signal to which your iOS device is connected to. This is super useful to use in hotels or places where you can pay once for WiFi and rebroadcast the same signal using WiFi Sharing feature to your friends and family. MyWi also gives you ability to create 5GHz hotspots, something that Apple’s native offering doesn’t.
MyWi-8-main
The good news here is that if you have already paid for MyWi 6, 7 or earlier versions of MyWi 8, the upgrade to the latest version for iOS 8.3 is totally free, though if you’re looking to start fresh, it will set you back a good $19.99. Pricey I know but if features like WiFi Sharing is important to you, then it’s probably worth getting. Intelliborn, the developers behind MyWi, are also offering a free three-day trial to all users so that they can experience the tweak first-hand before making the decision to purchase it.
MyWi 8 can be downloaded from the ModMyi repository in Cydia.

iOS 8.4 Release Date And Time

Written by  
We already know that Apple is scheduled to release iOS 8.4 along with Apple Music on June 30th, but what we didn’t know until today was that it will be released two hours earlier than Apple’s usual release time window for iOS updates. Apparently this is due to Apple Music and Beats 1 launching on the same day as iOS 8.4. Apple wants to make sure the upgrade is as smooth as possible, hence the change in release time. This has been confirmed by former Beats Music CEO and current Apple Music senior director Ian Rogers.
Tuesday morning we’ll be unveiling the next chapter. Please make a note to upgrade to iOS 8.4 at 8am PT Tuesday, June 30th and listen to the first Beats 1 broadcast at 9am PT. Here’s a Facebook invite to make it easy for you to say yes, you’ll be there, and invite all your friends. See you there.
Screen-Shot-2015-06-09-at-7.25.19-AM
What this means is that iOS 8.4 downloads will go live worldwide at 8AM on Tuesday, June 30th Pacific Time (11AM in Eastern) followed by the launch of Beats 1, the 24/7 streaming music station, an hour later at 9AM PT. For release date and time of iOS 8.4 in your region, check out the chart below:
Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 10.14.14 PM

While Beats 1 will be free for all Apple ID users, Apple Music streaming service tier with full access to music catalogue of over 30 million tracks will cost $9.99 per month for individual users, and $15/month for family plan in which up to six people will be able to share the service. Apple Music will also have a free trial in which users will be able to enjoy the service free for three months.
Apple Music is launching initially on iOS, Mac OS X and Windows. Apple TV and Android versions are scheduled for release this fall. To learn more about Apple Music, check out our detailed post on it here.
If you are a jailbreak user, do not update to iOS 8.4 come Tuesday as currently there is no 100% confirmation of TaiG v2 jailbreak working on a firmware beyond iOS 8.3. We will obviously keep you updated on this, stay tuned for more!

25 iOS Secret Features You Likely Didn’t Know About

Written by  
While it’s true that iOS started out as a relatively basic operating system for the iPhone and iPod touch, the software and its list of features have grown and matured over the years. Nowadays iOS is feature rich, so much so that we’re willing to bet that there are quite a few things hidden within iOS that lots of people don’t know even exist.
With that in mind we set about putting together a list of features and tools within iOS that we didn’t think everyone would know existed. Initially, we kicked the idea off with a handful of items for our list, but eventually it grew into a list of no fewer than 25 tips and features that we hope will surprise at least some of you, ranging from hidden Siri commands to special Emoji.
25 iOS main
With the introduction out of the way, let’s get started. We aren’t going to go into too much detail about each entry here and instead point you to a more full and certainly more wordy description on this very web site.
So let’s get things kicked off.
1. Create Custom Vibrations
IMG_0429
If you find that you need to be able to recognize calls or messages from a particular person even when in silent mode, then a custom vibration is what you should be using. You can do this by navigating to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone > Vibration and tap on Create New Vibration.
2. Siri Can Read Anything
IMG_0441
She really can. Just ask here and she’ll start reading whatever’s in front of her. You can set this up by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Speech and turn on Speech Selection.
3. Frequent Locations And How To Disable
iOS-7-location.png
iOS logs your frequent locations and gives you useful information based on that. But, if you think this is a breach of your privacy, then you can simply turn the feature off. And in return, you’ll end up saving battery life too.
4. Ask Siri Which Planes Are Flying Above You
Planes.jpg
If you want to know who’s flying over you at any given time, just ask Siri using the command“What planes are above me right now?”
5. Keep Tabs On Your Magnets With An iPhone
Screen-Shot-2014-11-26-at-11.38.47-pm.png
It’s amazing what a smartphones magnetometer can do.
6. Siri Can Help You Take A Selfie
Selfie.png
Siri can take a selfie. Of you, not her, of course. Just launch Siri and say “Take a selfie,” which will subsequently launch the Camera app.
7. Secretly Capture Photos And Videos
image-1.png
Because you just never know when you might need that quick snap covertly.
8: Delete Digits In The Calculator App Without Pressing A Button
IMG_0436
A simple swipe on the digits in the stock iOS Calculator app can delete numbers.

9. Grayscale Mode
IMG_0434
Perfect for pretending you’re in a 1920s movie, or if you just want to save battery life. You can enable this feature by going to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn the Grayscale switch to the ON position.
10. Hide photos In The Photos App
Photo-Sep-20-11-20-21-PM.png
We all have at least one photo we don’t want our friends seeing. Simply tap and hold on a photo to reveal the ‘Hide’ option.
11. Block your Caller ID
Block-Caller-ID-main.png
If your carrier supports it, you can hide your caller ID in a snap.

12. Filter Your Messages

Sick of spam text messages? Filter those bad boys right out.

13. Spock Vulcan Salute Emoji

14. Stop Nosey People From Swiping Through Your Photos
iPhone-photos.png
Don’t want people to swipe beyond the photo which you’ve asked them to see? No problem, iOS can help settle that too with a very neat feature that does just that.

15. See A Whole List Of Songs You’ve Asked Siri To ID
Siri-Shazam-main.png
Justin Bieber. 1Direction. We know, we won’t hold it against you.

16. Hide Apps From The iOS Home Screen

Now you can get rid of the iBooks app!

17. Create A Blank Home Screen
Blank-Home-Screen-main.png
Because everyone loves a little wide open space.

18. Create Nested Folders

If you find yourself with multiple folders for the same type of app, nested folders are for you.

19. Take Photos While You’re Recording Video

This comes in stupendously useful if you have kids. Or a cat. You can take photos while recording a video by pressing the little white button as shown in the screenshot.
20. Teach Siri How To Pronounce Names Properly

We all have that one contact that Siri mangles each and every time. Here’s how to stop that from happening.

21. Control When The App Store Asks For Your Password

No more passwords for free apps? Yes please.

22. Hide Your App Store Purchases

23. Find Your Lost iPhone Even If Its Battery Is Dead

24. See Just How Strong Your iPhone’s Cellular Signal Strength Is
