First Untethered iPhone 5 Jailbreak Comes In The Form Of ‘evasi0n’

It’s been over 4 months since the release of the iPhone 5 and today marks the first day that users can jailbreak their phones via an untethered software by a group of iOS jailbreak authors who go by the name of, “Evad3rs.”

The software is available for Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows and will jailbreak any iOS 6.x device. For those unfamiliar with jailbreaking, its purpose is to allow the user to make unauthorized tweaks and changes to the phone and the ability to download apps not found on the App Store. As an untethered jailbreak, users only have to jailbreak once, while a tethered jailbreak means that the user has to do this process every time they restart their phone.

Note: Via The Verge, users and staff have confirmed that the jailbreak is force closing Apple's Weather App.

The World's Most Advanced Mobile Operating System: iOS 6

Although there were no hints as to hardware for the next iPhone, Apple did however, announce a lot of updates in their new iOS, iOS 6. Looking to give users more functionality with less hassle and inconvenience, iOS 6 definitely looks promising. With new updates and additional features, it is ready to move our generation into the post-PC era.

Siri has been rather underwhelming since her release, rarely being used except for the occasional funny response she gives when asked obscene questions. For a lot of us, Siri was just not that useful. As she was released as a beta, we shouldn’t expect too much. Now, Apple announced that they plan to give Siri an update, improving her accuracy at both responding and understanding what you want. She will be integrated with a number of apps including Yelp, Facebook, and sports news. Facebook integration will be available as well, allowing you to post right onto your profile similar to Twitter’s integration. Apple is also working with popular car companies such as Toyota, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and others to have a “Eyes Free” feature that activates Siri with a push of a button, similar to that of Bluetooth’s “Hands-free” feature.

A major change involves Apple’s Map app, which is currently supported through Google. Wanting to break away from relying on other companies, Apple created their own in-house app that features 3D maps. Going along with its 3D functions will be GPS functionality with turn-by-turn directions. The other entirely new App iOS 6 plans to offer is Passbook, an app to store all of your tickets and information for travel so you have all of your information in one place and prevents the risk of losing any important documents.

iOS 6 will greatly improve your iOS device and will be compatible with the iPhone 3GS and later as well as the iPad 2 and new iPad. Apple plans to release iOS 6 sometime in the Fall, most likely concurrently with their new iPhone. 

iOS 6 Confirmed For WWDC 2012

A new banner went up today at Moscone West ahead of Apple's June 11 WWDC event confirming iOS 6 along with a spanking new logo. We're expecting a major design overhaul and a bunch of new features, but we will know exactly come June 11.
