The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x and up has proved a big hit among Cydia fans, successfully opening the door for the second time on iOS 7 after the initial heroics of the Evad3rs. Although the initial tool was a tad unrefined, the Pangu team has frequently updated the utility for a smoother, more secure jailbreak, and having recently rolled out Pangu 1.2.1 featuring bug fixes and AFC2, those already jailbroken can now reap the benefits of these enhancements directly from Cydia.

The iPhone 6 may be the hottest topic in tech circles right now, but even though the annual dose of iPhone Fever has taken a stronghold once more, we’ve also the small matter of the iPad refresh to contend with. Only yesterday, we heard that the next-gen iPad Air could double up on RAM to 2GB, with certain ‘pro’ features apparently set to arrive with iOS 8.1 early next year, and now, a new parts leak has presented us with a close-up look at some of the device’s internals.

Dong Nguyen, whose .GEARS Studio developed the famed Flappy Bird title for iOS and Android, has come through with a follow-up title that, on first play, seems every bit as tedious and frustrating as Nguyen’s smash-hit title.

Although the blogosphere is currently inundated with news of the next-gen iPhone 6, it’s also suspected that the iPad line-up will be in receipt of its customary refresh later on this year. Aside from the more obvious matter of the improved processor — both the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are expected to adopt the all-new Apple 8 SoC — both of the fruit company’s flagship slates will also benefit from an improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor, in what is already stacking up as a fairly substantial hardware upgrade. Now, it has emerged that the larger of the two Apple slabs may be kitted out with 2GB of RAM, and given that the next-gen Retina mini is expected to remain at 1GB, it’ll help to give the larger, more prominent model the technical edge over its smaller cousin.

Apple has just seeded iOS 8 beta 6 to testing partners, and in a decision apparently taken due to the imminent nature of the GM release, the tech giant has opted not to seed this one to developer. It’s usually the case that beta releases can be downloaded and tested out by those subbed to the Developer Program, but with the public release of iOS 8 now just a matter of weeks away, this sixth beta is preserved only for testing partners.

Those of us carrying iPhones and iPads around are sometimes all too quick to point the finger at those with Android devices while waxing lyrical about how their phones and tablets are so susceptible to malware. That’s probably the truth if everything is left as nature intended, but if you start to jailbreak that aforementioned iPhone or iPad, then all bets are off.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.

A few days back, we told you reports (read: leaked information) of a claim that Apple’s new iPhone 6 will ship with a reversible Lightning cable, in that the cable will be pluggable into a USB port either way up.

Today, a number of images for the new Lightning cable retail boxes have been leaked that show that the new Lightning cable might be closer than it earlier seemed.

Apple’s $3 billion acquisition of Beats Electronics and Beats Music wasn’t in vain at all. Earlier this week, the Cupertino tech giant started exposing first-time customers to Beats Music when they stepped into the App Store for the first time, and now, the company has included Beats Music app to the “Apps Made by Apple” list in the iTunes App Store, in order to guarantee not only just higher number of downloads for the app, but also cement its ownership of the company and its platform.

The Pokémon World Championships – which are apparently a real thing – are currently taking place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C and while it’s no doubt an absolute blast for those who like that kind of thing, we’re not sure it’s really our cup of tea. That being said though, our ears tend to prick up when we hear about new iPad games, so the idea of a Pokémon game coming to Apple’s tablet had us interested.
