One common question, even a problem, with iPhones, is that the mass of application icons on each page is ‘top justified’, i.e. everything huddles together and sticks to the top of a page. Aside from icons reshuffling when you move, install or remove an application, it’s overload for the eyes, I contend. Far better to have some decent organization and also ‘room to breathe’. Visually. Have a look at the screenshot below and you’ll see what I mean – compare it to your own iPhone home screen and hopefully, you’ll be wondering ‘how on earth did he do that?’

Touch screen laptops are in the market for quite some time but they are yet to go mainstream. Apple tried to offer a compromise between the touch screen and a traditional one by introducing Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro. Touch Bar replaced the function key and offered different functionality for different apps. Now, a developer has made Touch Bar useful on MacBook Pro running Windows.
One of my biggest gripes with iOS is its barely customizable home screen. Sadly, Apple has not fixed this issue with iOS 13 and there is no jailbreak tweak to radically enhance the iOS 12 home screen as well. A new jailbreak tweak called Honey does aim to fix this problem to a certain extent by bringing the Apple Watch home screen to your iPhone.
Regaining access to the hacked Instagram account was one of the many struggles users faced with the platform. Instagram has finally decided to tackle the issue by making a series of changes.

The @pwn20wnd jailbreaking team today released Unc0ver 3.2.0 jailbreak tool for iOS 11 – iOS 12.1.2 with a brand new UI and improved reliability. The Unc0ver jailbreak app looked dated and paled in comparison to Chimera’s excellent jailbreaking app. Thanks to the competition, the @Pwn20wnd team have stepped up their efforts in this regard and given their app a drastic UI makeover.
unc0ver, the controversial jailbreak for iOS 11.0 all the way up until iOS 12.1.1, has received its biggest update to date. The update seemingly focuses on optimisation, stability and bug fixes, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring.
Another day, another iOS release. iOS 12.3 was released recently, which means the timeframe to save SHSH Blobs (or blobs for short) for iOS 12.2 is shrinking with every second. If you’re unaware, blobs are something like a snapshot of Apple’s servers that allow you to downgrade your iOS at a later date if you happen to jailbreak your device and break something. They’re basically your lifeline when things go wrong and you’re forced to update your firmware to a non-jailbreakable version.
If you use a jailbroken iPhone and are a heavy Snapchat user, you might want to reconsider using the app on your phone. Snapchat has seemingly started banning accounts of users who are running the app on their jailbroken iPhone.
The Electra team surprised everyone by releasing Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 devices earlier this week. Unlike Unc0ver, Chimera jailbreak also supports A12 Bionic devices like the iPhone XS and iPhone XR. Additionally, it has CoreTrust bypass which makes it more stable and faster in nature when compared to Unc0ver. If you have already jailbroken your iPhone XS, iPhone XR, or any other A12X Bionic device using Chimera, check out some of the free jailbreak tweaks for your device that are worth a try.
It is pretty common for parents nowadays to give their kids an iPad to help distract them and make them keep quiet. Evan Osnos, a journalist from Washington DC, did the same and ended up being locked out of his iPad for 47 years.
