iOS 9’s new Picture-in-Picture mode allows iPad users to watch videos in a small screen while they continue to do other things on their device. But with some simple hacks and zero jailbreaking, the feature can be tricked into playing games like Doom — as demonstrated in the video below.
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.
