If you hate the iOS 7 power-off screen then you're going to love BetterPowerDown. When Apple finally released iOS 7 to the public last year, it's fair to say that it wasn't met with complete acceptance. Some of the design changes that Jony Ive brought to the iPhone and iPad had some people not just shaking their heads, but also longing for the more familiar look and feel of the versions of iOS that they were so used to.
At the tail-end of last year, we presented a guide that showed jailbroken iOS 7 users how to utilize the Cydia Store for the purpose of speeding up their devices. But if you don't, for whatever reason, happen to have introduced your device to the wonders of Evasi0n, we've outlined a few tips that could help you speed up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running stock firmware, specifically for hardware that is old, like the iPhone 4, 4s, etc.

Starting with iOS 7, Apple introduced a new security mechanism into all iOS devices that required a user to disable Find My iPhone before an iCloud account could be deleted or the device could be restored.

Back when iOS 7.1 first released, it quickly became apparent that the Evasi0n exploit had been patched by Apple, and as such, those wishing to preserve their jailbreak should stick with a pre-iOS 7.1 firmware. Shortly after Apple dropped the first significant update to its mobile firmware, seasoned hacker Winocm revealed that he had managed to jailbreak an iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 7.1, and now, fellow iOS security expert iH8sn0w has done likewise for the iPhone 4s (A5).
iOS 7 has brought quite a few obvious new features, designed to have an instant impact on the functionality and usability of Apple's mobile OS. Yet, as is the case with CarPlay, for example, not everything that the Cupertino has thrown into its latest software is for its immediate benefit, and even though you probably haven't heard about it, Apple added a little something called Multipeer Connectivity Framework into the fold. The intriguing technology allows multiple devices - which needn't be connected to the Internet - to interact in a manner known as mesh networking, and by utilizing connectivity in the form of Wi-Fi networks, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, users can connect in a daisy chain-like manner, to various ends.
iOS 7.1, which Apple finally released to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users earlier on the month, brought with it a plethora of changes and enhancements including improvements to Siri, iTunes Radio and the introduction of CarPlay. But where iOS 7.1 giveth, iOS 7.1 also taketh away, and as well as plugging the Evasi0n jailbreak, the latest firmware also appeared to prevent a mistake of a feature that allowed for nested folders on the home screen. Now, though, there's a handy little workaround, and although it does require a little bit of extra effort, still does the same job.
