We’ve seen lots of glitches in iOS that let you put folders inside other folders or hide built-in apps you don’t want — but the latest in iOS 9.3 is probably the strangest yet. By simply changing your wallpaper, you can make your home screen folders completely round. Here’s how.
iOS 9 might seem pretty fast and responsive to you, but did you know it can be even faster? If you disable system animations using this neat trick — which requires no jailbreak — you get apps that open and close so fast you won’t have time to lift your finger from the screen.
If you’re still clinging onto a really old iPod or iPad, you’re missing out on Apple’s latest iOS releases. But with a new hack called Grayd00r, you can install an iOS 9-like user interface on your iPod touch 3G or original iPad, and greatly improve performance at the same time.
Researchers have proven that it’s possible for attackers to crash any iPhone or iPad over Wi-Fi, thanks to a bug in iOS 8. In some cases, devices can be forced into a boot-loop, rendering them unusable.
Last week, we reported on a $300 device called the IP Box, which was allowing repair shops and hackers to bypass passcodes and gain access to locked iOS devices. But it turns out that expensive hardware isn’t required; TransLock, a new utility for Mac, can do the same job over USB.
Does Siri still not support your native language? Perhaps MoreSiri can help. The new tweak for jailbroken iOS devices adds 10 new languages to Apple’s virtual assistant — including Danish, Dutch, and Russian.
Leap Motion, the tiny box that brings motion controls to Macs and PCs, can be made to work with iOS, too. In the video below, developer Elias Limneos demonstrates how the device can enable cool, hands-free gesture controls on an iPhone, like the ability to turn over your hand to put your phone to sleep.
With almost every iteration of iOS, Apple has made it even more difficult to bypass a passcode lock. But the tiny box you see above is able to use brute force to bypass a passcode and gain entry to a locked iOS device while keeping its data intact.
The idea of running Windows 98 on an iOS device may seem pretty pointless to most, but there’s no denying it’s incredibly cool. Especially when you put it to good use, like the YouTuber in the video below, who uses it to play 1998 PC classic Fallout 2.
