When a new firmware update is available to the public, everyone will prepare to install it on their iPhone or iPad. While most people have no problem doing so, many iOS users were unable to get the latest update because their device doesn’t have enough storage.

Over time, Apple has tried their best to reduce the firmware to the lowest possible capacity. A great example would be the upcoming iOS 9, it only weight as much as 1.3GB, which is a huge improvement. If there is not enough space for this, then you need to do some serious clean up.

From personal experiences and different research, we found that if you stay away from any illegal packages and Cydia sources, then you are safe from this.

A recent research from Palo Alto networks has discovered a new piece of malware called KeyRaider that aims at jailbroken users and their devices. This malware allows the hackers to steal Apple’s iCloud accounts. As up to this point, statistics showed that KeyRaider has helped hackers steal over 250,000 Apple accounts. These iCloud accounts do not just based in the U.S but also in many different countries where iPhone and iPad are popular, including China, Australia, France, Germany, South Korea, Singapore, and many more.

Apple Should Further Improve iPhone Screen Durability

March 16, 2013 — by Simon Ng4

This is a guest post by Sarah Hewitt.

Apple’s iPhone 4S and 5 are winning in the battle of the smartphones according to strategy analytics. In Q3 of 2012 the Samsung Galaxy S3 was the single most popular smartphone globally but new statistics show that Apple edged ahead again in Q4, selling 27.4 million iPhone 5 and 17.4 million iPhone 4S. Q3 of 2012 had seen the Galaxy S3 overtake both the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 in sales but it ultimately only sold an estimated 15.4 million units in Q4. Watching this close race proves that the battle for domination of the smartphone market is tougher than ever before where every feature and every flaw counts in winning or losing customers.

The US Patent Office recently published a new patent application showing Microsoft’s engineers that they have actually invented the “Pinch and Zoom” concept as if Apple’s technology (and patent) never existed. Microsoft describes in their filing:
