When making or receiving a phone call on your iPhone or iPad, anything that is playing in the background such as music or video will automatically be paused by the operating system. This is extremely helpful and makes a lot of sense since the users don’t get distracted by their music or have to hear another sound besides the person they’re talking to.
iOS 9 brings many helpful features that Apple did not introduce to its users at the press event in San Francisco, one of these include Wi-Fi Assist and the name already suggest that it has to do with internet connection.
Wi-Fi Assist in iOS 9 is designed to help iPhone & iPad users optimize their network performance and continue to use the same internet speed, if not better, by switching to mobile data network instead of regular wireless. This is great when your Wi-Fi network at home or somewhere is not being responsive or has low signal. To avoid ruining your browsing experience Apple has turned this functionality on by default.
In iOS 9, Apple introduces their own built-in curated news app called Apple News. Just like Feedly and Pocket, readers can select their favorite websites, read the latest headlines without going where else, and explore the entire collections of valuable news sites.
The downside of Apple News is that it restricted to your region (Example: United States). For jailbroken users who recently jailbreak their iOS 9 devices can now have access to all regions in the Apple News. This will also require installing a tweak from Cydia and changing the regions in your stock Settings app.
iOs 9 Jailbreak tool was released by the Pangu team yesterday and most people have already had their iPhone and iPad jailbroken. According to many reports, a lot of tweaks seems to work fine, including Cydia Substrate and Winterboard. Usually, it takes these two popular tweaks to be updated but that’s not the case in this jailbreak.
This time around, iOS users tend to explore Cydia and see what kind of tweaks are available on the store. We’ve collected some of the best new jailbreak tweaks for iOS 9 if you can’t decide which one to download.
It’s that time again when a new jailbreak tool is released, especially from a well-known team. As reported earlier, Chinese team Pangu just drops their very first untethered jailbreak for iOS 9 devices and you can actually use it now since Cydia Substrate now supports iOS 9.
Before we begin, please do keep these things in mind:
- The current Pangu tool for iOS 9 is for Windows only
- Backup your iPhone and iPad from iCloud or iTunes before performing the jailbreak
- If you’re a Mac user, you can also jailbreak your iOS 9 at this time using virtual machine
It looks like we no longer have to wait for the new iOS 9 Jailbreak source code to be put together and release as a one-click tool. The Pangu team apparently just released a jailbreak for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running on iOS 9.0, iOS 9.0.1, and iOS 9.0.2.
“The new YouTube update for iPhone and iPad sucks”
That is the #1 comment I’ve seen so far throughout the days since YouTube decided to update its application to the latest version that everyone thought that it’s just going to fix some bugs. However, the Google-owned company decided to change their overall layout, especially the navigation, and somewhat makes it uncomfortable for users to move around.
In the recent Ad blocker related-news, Apple just removed one of the best ad blockers for iOS 9 called Been Choice, this isn’t your typical ad blocker for iOS devices. Users can block ads from social network, inside applications, and browsers like Safari. Along with that, iPhone and iPad users can also choose to earn money by sharing their data and using the ad blocker at the same time.
However, since the application is showing security risk and violation of privacy, Apple has quickly taken it down from their App Store. In order for Been Choice, for example, to share user’s information and data, they have to install some sort of root certificates and this usually done with permissions by users. But for most people, they think that this is just any typical installation and no hesitation, give permission to install these certificates right away.
A source code for jailbreaking iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8.4.1 is now available on Github. A student from Italy named Luca Todesco has released this tool as an open source code for anyone interested in getting their iOS 8.4.1 jailbroken.

Starting from iOS 8, any deleted photos or videos from the Camera Roll will be transferred over to a new folder called Recently Deleted. This new album was added to store deleted media files on your iPhone or iPad for 30 days and it will then remove permanently after that.
For some people, this might be a useful feature because you can easily restore a deleted photo just in case of a mistake. However, most iOS users found Recently Deleted to be an annoying feature because they have to get rid of their photos and videos twice. Not to mention that the data will continue to be counted, which means your storage will stays the same as is.
