iOS 9.3.5 quickly released to block Pegasus spyware

iOS 9.3.5 quickly released to block Pegasus spyware

Apple has set itself up as one of the biggest advocates of privacy and security against government-sanctioned espionage, which is probably why it immediately jumped into action to plug up a serious security hole merely 10 days after it was reported. Just weeks after it rolled out iOS 9.3.4, Apple has issued a critical iOS 9.3.5 update in an attempt to block a malware nicknamed “Pegasus” which, in just one tap, could gain access to the iPhones and data of “high-value targets”, which is usually another term for political targets like dissidents and activists.

Best iPhone Games of Summer 2016

New iPhone 7 release date tips massive cancellation

Pokemon GO Appraisal feature guide and meanings

Pokemon GO Appraisal feature guide and meanings

This week's most recent Pokemon GO update includes an Appraisal feature with a set of vague values that we'll be explaining today. Exact values of each Appraisal can only be found through a teardown of the APK of the newest version of the app. We don't expect every user to do this - as such, we've got these values torn out and listed in easy-to-read boxes below. These values will remain valid until the next update - and likely beyond. If they do end up changing, we'll be sure to make a note of it!

Microsoft Cache app for Windows, iOS smells like OneClip

Microsoft Cache app for Windows, iOS smells like OneClip

Instead of simply keeping all its eggs in its own Window 10 or Windows 10 Mobile basket, Microsoft, either officially or through its Garage skunkworks arm, has been steadily putting out mobile apps that cross the platform divide into iOS and Android territory, ranging from the useful to the insane. One of the latest, fortunately, straddles the “useful” category. Microsoft Garage’s “new” Cache app lets you clip anything and sync those between Windows and iOS devices. We say “new” because, truth be told, it sounds a lot like Microsoft’s “OneClip” tool from last year.

Prisma offline mode puts filters on your disconnected iPhone

Hit photo editing app Prisma has gained offline support, addressing one of the most common criticisms about the tool that uses artificial intelligence to manipulate images with artistic styles. Launched back in June, initially only on iOS but subsequently for Android users too, Prisma takes advantage of a neural network to analyze photos and then apply different filters to them, spanning a range from Pop Art through to classical watercolors and oil paintings.

Pokemon GO Update makes Team Leaders useful, promises exciting features

Pokemon GO Update makes Team Leaders useful, promises exciting features

Niantic Labs has just announced what seems to be a very minor update to Pokemon GO, which could still pique people’s curiosities. For one, it finally gives a bit of character to the otherwise practically useless Team Leaders. It also very briefly mentions one of the most debated aspects of the game: bots (and cheating). But most importantly, it tells players to hold on to their seats because new and exciting features are coming. Which isn’t really that surprising, but is now actually more critical than ever before.

Pokemon GO Update: egg chart, iv calculator, Reddit cheats

Pokemon GO Update: egg chart, iv calculator, Reddit cheats

Over the past couple of weeks a variety of big changes have weeded out some of the most prevalent Pokemon GO cheats, hacks, and exploits. Today we've got a list of working exploits of the game, as well as an updated Egg Chart and some IV Calculators that thus far seem to have avoided Niantic's ban gaze. This list has been compiled for two reasons. One, to keep gamers on top of what the cheaters are using to attempt to beat them. Two, to keep these developers on their toes - just as they, in turn, are keeping Niantic's developers on their toes.

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

Pokemon GO players find an obvious (yet hidden) method for gaining "free" coins in this global phenomenon of a game. It's not meant to be a secret, but there it remains - many new players see the Pokemon GO items store and instantly assume that they'll have to pay actual cash to attain Pokemon Coins, which in turn will then allow them to purchase things like Lures and additional Pokeballs. It's just not true. The real key - or one of the real keys - is in plain sight.

While Night Mode has been active on some Android devices for a while, it's now been brought to life on both iOS and all Android devices (or most) today. Users can try this Night Mode in Twitter on mobile devices starting this morning with a simple update to said apps via their app store. Once this update is active, Night Mode will allow the user to view Tweets in a sort of opposite-of-day color scheme - much better for the eyes.

Pokemon GO down? No, I’m just banned

Pokemon GO down? No, I’m just banned

Soft bans and hard bans are popping up early today from Niantic as the company attempts to cut down a new wave of Pokemon GO cheaters. Of course not ALL of the users that the company has deemed less than on-the-level are actual cheaters - but quite a few (or most) of them are. I knew that my account was banned because I'd been keeping up on Pokemon IV levels with an IV checker - whoops!
