Apple’s decision to open certain segments of its mobile platform up to developers with iOS 8 was much lauded by the tech community, and from a day-to-day standpoint, the introduction of third-party keyboard support has been something of a godsend. The likes of SwiftKey, Fleksy and Swype have undoubtedly made our lives a great deal easier, but even these long-standing utilities don’t solve all of our issues and gripes with typing on a mobile device. Having to re-type the same phrases and words can prove tiresome, and even though AutoFill comes to our rescue at times, there are instances whereby we just repeat ourselves time and again. Luckily, though, there’s an app for that.

VLC is rightly considered the best and most versatile video player of them all.

So, not much, then.

Back in the earlier days of jailbreaking, TinyUmbrella was an invaluable tool. Used to extract certain device-specific files and preserve them for safe-keeping, its primary use was to create pseudo servers from which iOS users could restore / update to software that Apple was no longer signing. Put simply, Apple stepped up to the mark, essentially nullifying the usefulness of TinyUmbrella almost completely, but now, its author has defiantly outlined his intention to restore it to its former glory.

With this in mind, tests have been carried out on both handsets pitting the new beta against the latest public release that is iOS 8.1.3 download, and it does seem like iOS 8.3 will offer a generous improvement, particularly to those rocking older Apple mobile devices.

It was way back with the iPhone 5 in 2012 that Apple introduced the smaller, reversible (although still proprietary) Lightning cable, which signaled the end of the 30-pin connector. Of course, many still did, and still do use devices rocking the old 30-pin socket, which is why Apple’s World Travel Adapter Kit has hitherto included a 30-pin cable. Recognizing that after two-and-a-half years, many folks are now running on Lightning, the pack has been relieved of the 30-pin cable, and notably, now arrives at a cheaper cost.
