LiberiOS jailbreak for iOS 11 is here but you should wait

LiberiOS jailbreak for iOS 11 is here but you should wait

Jailbreakig iOS devices has always been a hot topic, much more than rooting in the Android world. Lately, however, it has become even more heated because of iOS 11. Never mind the drama surrounding Cydia developer Saurik. To date, there is no ready and simple to use jailbreak method for iOS 11, though there is at least one proof-of-concept based on a new bug discovery tool developed by Ian Beer from Google Project Zero. And while this new LiberiOS jailbreak looks promising, it is something only the most daring and most skilled of jailbreakers should attempt to use.

iPhone 11 release tipped in 3 models (Take a peek!)

Instead of two standard models and one higher-end model, a set of tips this week suggest that the "third" model will play at the other end of the price spectrum. The new devices might well play like the Bugs Bunny version of the Three Bears, where the "just right" baby bear is actually the biggest!

iPhone X isn’t Consumer Reports’ top pick

iPhone X isn’t Consumer Reports’ top pick

Non-profit organization Consumer Reports prides itself on offering “unbiased product ratings and reviews” and it isn’t averse to ruffling a few feathers to do so. It has given unfavorable, sometimes even scathing reviews on products like the new MacBook Pro, the Microsoft Surface line, and even the Tesla Model S. Although less damning this time, the magazine isn’t awarding the iPhone X a glowing recommendation, especially over its iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus siblings. That’s because it has found it too be a tad too fragile and short-lived for its $1,000 price tag.

Your iPhone X is about to wirelessly charge faster

Your iPhone X is about to wirelessly charge faster

Wireless iPhone charging is about to narrow the performance gap with wired charging, with iOS 11.2 set to speed up the tech on the iPhone X and iPhone 8. The 2017 iPhone line-up was Apple's first attempt at wireless charging in its smartphones, opting for the Qi standard. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

iPhone 2018 extends the notch to 3-phone lineup

iPhone 2018 extends the notch to 3-phone lineup

Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup may throw you for a loop. At least, that's if the company releases the devices KGI predicts. This non-official, predicted lineup includes three iPhone models - all three with the notch of the iPhone X. These three models won't fit the profile of the lineup currently on display at Apple - they'll switch the premium crown from 1 to 2.

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

Today Apple fixed one of the strangest errors in code the company's likely ever had to deal with. The newest version of iOS corrects the software's autocorrection of the letter "i." Autocorrect of the letter I in its lower-cased form became quite a significant sort of nonsense for users over the past week, as you can imagine, since most users aren't too keen on making certain every I is capitalized.

iPhone X profit margin higher than 8, Galaxy S8, Huawei Mate 10

This week the cost of parts inside the iPhone X have been calculated, and it would seem that Apple's got profit on point. According to TechInsights, the profit margin for the iPhone X is a whopping 64%, coming up just above the iPhone 8, with a profit margin of 59.2%. Like previous estimations from the same source, these numbers are based on street price and the cost of the parts that make up the device - they do not account for the many other costly elements that make for a new smartphone, like manufacturing.

iPhone, iPad, Mac sales back on the rise

Apple fiscal 4th quarter sales results are in with a return to growth in the smartphone, tablet, and notebook markets. While MacBook sales never really went anywhere drastic, both iPad and iPhone unit sales have been between flat or dropping for the last several quarters. It would appear that Apple's newest moves in smartphones and tablets have made the difference - and this in the quarter before the holiday season.

iPhone X anticipation may be slowing iPhone 8 sales

iPhone X anticipation may be slowing iPhone 8 sales

2017 is a bit of an anomaly year for Apple. Though we've grown used to receiving two new iPhones each year - one standard-sized iPhone and one Plus model - this year we're getting three new iPhones. One of those, as you likely already know, is the iPhone X - a special release that, at least in part, celebrates the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone's release.
