When assessing whether to go ahead and jailbreak or not, we normally weigh up the pros and cons. One of the main drawbacks of taking the plunge is that stability issues tend to be more frequent where Cydia is present, but on the flip side, the considerable functionality enhancements should not be underestimated. One of the other key issues with past jailbreaks was the inability to restore to default settings on the device, something that most of us carry out every once in a while as a matter of protocol. But thanks to the Semi-Restore tool, you can revert to factory settings (almost) while leaving your jailbreak completely unaffected.

Apple rolled out iOS 8.1.1 beta a couple of days back, and along with the usual assortment of bug fixes and minor tweaks, the main alteration, at least as far as the jailbreak community is concerned, is the fact that it plugs exploits that have permitted Pangu8 to work its magic. Thus, when iOS 8.1.1 is deemed ready for prime time and Apple stops signing iOS 8.1, you will only then be able to update to iOS 8.1.1, which will in turn mean losing any immediate opportunity to jailbreak.

We’ve all, at some stage, found ourselves in the scenario where we pass our phones over to a friend, with the intent on showing them a photo or video, and they take it upon themselves to scan through the entire library. Many of us harbor snaps that we’d probably not want to share with everybody, and so when this unsolicited scanning frenzy begins, we often lean over to retrieve our devices before the worst occurs. But there is an easier way. There just so happens to be an in-built iOS feature that allows you to completely disable and enable touch browsing in a swift, convenient manner.

Shazam has essentially eliminated that ever-so-annoying “what song is this, again?” conversation that we used to have amongst ourselves whenever we heard a song we liked on the radio. As a third-party app / service, it’s been running for years now, but with iOS 8, Apple took the favorable step of baking it into Siri. So instead of using the app – which becomes typically hard to find when you know a song is about to end – one can simply ask for title, artist and album through the digital slave that is Siri. Yes, this is even more convenient than Shazam as we already knew it pre-iOS 8, but then again, at least Shazam keeps a neat list that we can always refer to. iOS 8 does too, although it’s a little trickier to find, and so, we’ve compiled a very little guide to help you find a list of the songs that you’ve asked Siri to tag.
