Is It Possible to Jailbreak iOS 9 with Taig or Pangu?

With the new mobile firmware update a lot of Apple users wonder about iOS 9 jailbreak update and well-known hacker’s teams speak about this important issue. Is it possible to jailbreak iOS 9? Are there any new vulnerabilities found by TaiG, Pangu or PP jailbreak groups? Can you untether your iOS 9 iPhone or iPad today?

As the document presented by Apple notes the company patched the iOS 9 vulnerability found by hackers and use for jailbreaking iOS 8 version. This means that iOS is not jailbreakable right now. The famous ‘fruit’ giant already credited both TaiG and Pangu for finding the security exploit in iOS 9 version. You can guess that this flaw is already patched.

The iPhone maker managed to kill the holes in the code and fixed the issues that could be used for jailbreaking iOS 9 today. It can take hackers a few weeks or even months to find the new solution and discover new vulnerabilities in the 2015 mobile firmware version. If this happens soon – we might be able to get the iOS 9 jailbreak this fall.

It could also happen that jailbreaking teams create a working tool in the end of September or early October. One developer [iH8sn0w] hs already proved that iOS 9 can be jailbroken. He demonstrated his solution on video but is not planning to make the program public. Could iH8sn0w share the exploit with Pangu, TaiG or PP Jailbreak? We don’t know but the jailbreaking community surely exchanges opinions and ideas and this might also happen.

Are you looking for the iOS 9 jailbreak availability or do you like all the features present in iOS 9 and don’t want to customize this system?

Apple 3D Touch Technology in iPhone 6s

What is Apple 3D Touch technology that is used on the new generation iPhones? How to use it? All these questions will soon be answered by each customer who pre-orders the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus now or is going to purchase one of these models on September 25 when they both go on sale in Apple retail stores in the U.S. and across the world.

The new iPhone 6s 3D Touch option is different from the Force Touch used in Apple Watch and some Macs. This new 2015 option is also one of the major iPhone 6s features offered to potential ‘fruit’ giant customers who are planning to upgrade to a newer smartphone and wish to get something unique that really stands out.

Apple is trying to introduce something brand new in each iPhone model to keep customer’s attention and interest for high handset demand. It unveiled Siri with iPhone 4S, presented Touch ID with iPhone 5S, brought new design and bigger screen with iPhone 6 and now introduces 3D Touch for iPhone 6s / 6s Plus.

This is a brand new interaction way for ‘fruit’ users. The multitouch technology has been developed for many years to be released in 2015. This year’s phones can detect the pressure you are using while tapping or clicking on the screen. This opens new opportunities for users and should make the iPhone experience unbelievably simple.

All the information is obtained from your touch sensor and the special accelerometer. The next iOS 9 firmware version also focuses on this technology making it easier to navigate and work inside applications.

You can tab, click and press hard. You new gen phone will distinguish between all these light and deeper press gestures and provide more ways to interact with the smartphone and do your everyday tasks. This feature will absolutely come to all future phones however Apple has already introduced it in 2015. Are you planning to get the ‘s’ device?


How to Clear Space on iPhone for iOS 9 Update

This week Apple is rolling out the new public iOS 9 firmware for its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Here is the simple prepare to update iOS 9 guide that will help all users to free up space for the installation on their iDevice to make the upgrade as smooth as possible.

Our tips on how to free up space on iPhone for iOS 9 update are simple and you most likely know most of them. Recollecting is fun so let’s prepare our gadgets for the major roll out that is planned for September 16.

How to Clear Space on iPhone for iOS 9

Step 1. Figure out where the most of your storage space is used. Go to Settings and select General – Usage menu. You can choose Storage – Manage Storage option and get details on the storage space used on the iPhone or other iDevice you have.

Step 2. Think about the apps you want to get rid of. Uninstall the programs you don’t need. This way you get free up enough storage space for successful iOS 9 updating.

Step 3. Users with the 16GB models might need to also reduce the music library and maybe switch to the streaming service to get more free space on the smartphone.

Step 4. Sync your pictures / video files to iCloud Photo Library [here is how to restore deleted files on iCloud] and use less space on the iDevice by not storing photos and videos directly on it. You can also sync your files with your computer through iTunes.

Step 5. You might want to clear your Safari cache by going to Settings – General menu and selecting Usage – Manage Storage – Safari and choosing the feature called Clear History and Website Data.

Step 6. Do you have a lot of iMessage conversations that are old and you don’t actually need to store them? Delete all the old texts and get more free space for updating to iOS 9.

It’s great that the Cupertino-based company reduced the free space you have to have on the iDevice in order to install iOS 9 through OTA option. You’ll need 1.3GB of free space if you choose this method. This is a great accomplishment because iOS 8 needed at least 4.6GB of free space for over-the-air updates.


How Big Is 4K Video on iPhone 6S?

The 2015 iPhone 6s model Apple will officially release in the end of September has some unique features not present on iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Firstly, this device will be running the new iOS 9 platform with tons of options and interesting extras. Secondly, iPhone 6s 4k video is a new option that allows users recording 4k films through the 12MP camera.

How big is 4k video on iPhone 6s? A lot of potential customers might want to know this information before getting the new generation smartphone since Apple still offers the 16GB model even though most users hoped the company would drop this storage space version.

The 4k video storage space is surely much bigger than space taken by regular videos. There is already information from different experts who manage to shot the 1 minute video and discovered how big it is.

Let me say one thing. You do not want to get the 16GB iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. Look at the 64GB or 128GB model because the 4k video is pretty big. To compare, the HD video requires at least 60MB of space if you capture it at 30fps and at 720p HD. Better quality you want to get – the more space will be required.

Thus, the 30fps and 1080p HD 1-minute iPhone 6s 4K video will need 130MB of space. If you ant even better quality, you should remember this: while the 60fps 1080p HD video needs 200MB of space your brand new 4K video shot at 30fps will take even more – it will need 375MB!

You can see that the iOS 9 iPhone 6s with 16GB of space will definitely be not enough for users who are planning to record 4k videos. The Apple phone with the smallest storage space won’t even hold the 40 minutes 4k video because it requires all the space this model has.

The 128GB iPhone 6s would be able to record not more than 6 hours of 4k videos.
