Two of three Cydia jailbreaking app sources have shut down

Once upon a time, jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad was really the only way for users to truly get the best experience out of their expensive devices. Fast-forward 10 years later, jailbreaking iOS devices feels almost like a distant memory.

OnePlus 5T narrowly beats iPhone X in speed

Apple has always been lauded for how it is able to squeeze out maximum performance from its hardware. And that has become even more evident when it started making its own A processors.
