iPhone has a neat privacy trick. iOS apps don’t ask for all the permissions at once, instead, they only ask for the required permissions when needed. When you launch an app for the first time, it asks for the relevant permissions to function properly. Among the allowed permissions, it’s always advisable to check which apps have your camera and microphone permissions. After all, you won’t want some shady app taking advantage of camera and microphone permission in the background.

Last week, Apple released the iOS 13.5.1 update to patch the zero-day security exploit in iOS 13.5 that allowed for a jailbreak.

There are times when you are tired of listening to the same playlists over and over on your preferred music streaming app on the iPhone. Sometimes you might want to listen to local FM radio or your favorite radio channel for a change. Up until the iPhone 6s, Apple included FM radio and antennas designed to support the radio signals on iPhones, but never activated the feature in the software. This was despite the US government’s appeal to enable FM Radio on iPhones. That does not mean you cannot listen to FM radio on your iPhone though.
The team behind Unc0ver has just released an iOS 13.3.1 – iOS 13.5 jailbreak for all iPhones and iPads.

If you are looking to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad running iOS 13.5 using Unc0ver, check out this guide.
Starting with iOS 11, Apple moved to HEIC (High Efficiency Image Coding) image format on the iPhone. The biggest advantage of HEIC is the ability to store images at half the file size of JPEG with no discernible difference in image quality. But there is a catch though. Even after two years of adoption, HEIC’s cross-platform availability is still a hit and miss. We have seen reports of students failing in AP exams due to the website’s lack of support for HEIC image format.
