Oh how time flies. Today marks a momentous anniversary for Apple and its iPhone lineup, and a considerable shift in an entire industry.
If you’re an iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 4G user and have upgraded to iOS 6.1.6, which was released recently to fix a critical SSL bug then the good news is that it is still possible to perform an untethered jailbreak on your iOS device using a combination of Redsn0w and p0sixspwn.
Update (June 17): Please note a new version of p0sixspwn has been released which adds support for iOS 6.1.1, so you can use p0sixspwn directly to perform the untethered jailbreak on your device running iOS 6.1.6, instead of using this workaround. You can check out our step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.6 using p0sixspwn. If you’ve any problem with that method then you can use this workaround.
A man in Beijing named Ma recently had quite a scare in his home. An iPhone 3GS, which he purchased in 2009, spontaneously exploded while resting on his bedside table. According to him, he’s also an iPhone 4 owner, but recently took his old iPhone 3GS from out of a drawer because he wanted to use it for a second phone line. He charged the phone, as one would normally do, and BOOM, it just melted.
The original iPhone was launched more than six years ago in 2007 by Steve Jobs. The features in the device like the multitouch screen, the full-featured web browser, the touch screen interface were nothing short of revolutionary, but through seven iterations, Apple has made significant improvements to the already impressive iPhone.
It’s been a week since the next-generation iPhone 5s as well as the colorful iPhone 5c have gone on sale. Despite the iPhone 5s being an “s” upgrade, there are quite a few new features that make the purchase worthwhile, especially for owners of the iPhone 4s or older iPhones.
If you’ve already bought or plan to buy the new iPhone, and planning to trade-in your old iPhone, here are some tips to make sure all your personal data has been wiped off the device’s storage. You’ll be surprised how many people sell their iPhones without doing anything to remove personal data.
