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.
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.
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.
After releasing hacked carrier updates for AT&T and T-Mobile that enables Release 9 DC-HSPA+ on iPhone 5 for improved network performance, Joe of iTweakOS has now released a hacked carrier update for Verizon.
The hacked Verizon carrier update enables 1x Advanced and EVDO Rev. B on iPhone 5, iPad 3 and iPad 4, which the developer says should boost download speeds.
While Apple launched the Camera Connection Kit for the iPad to allow users to easily download photos from a digital camera or SD card, we’ve seen it being used to connect an external hard drive and even an iPhone to the iPad.
