Sometimes we are caught by surprise when we play our favorite games on iOS devices. You decided to spend about an hour and only to find out you almost spent three hours finishing the game and topping the leader boards and achievements. That’s not a problem if you have all the time in the world. However, if you want to follow strict rules on gaming, why not download iOS developer Jonathan Bailey’s tweak called “NCTablClock.”
Many of us love to use Winterboard, a popular tweak on cydia to theme your iPhone. For some reasons, you may want to use your own wallpaper instead of the one bundled with the theme. Winterboard comes with a “User Wallpaper” feature that lets you replace the bundled wallpaper with your own. We have written a detailed guide showing you how to make use of the feature. However, as informed by some readers, this “User Wallpaper” feature doesn’t work in iOS 5.
Here is a fix if you find the “User Wallpaper” doesn’t work. The fix is simple. You can simply delete or rename the default “Wallpaper.png” of the Winterboard theme. I’ll use the “Suave” theme as an example to show you how to apply the fix. But the procedures should be similar for other themes.
It has been almost a week since the iOS 5.1 was released by Apple. Right after the release of the new iOS version, the Chronic Dev Team did what they do best and released a tethered jailbreak for all the A4 devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) with the redsn0w jailbreak tool. Even though it was a tethered jailbreak, users all around the globe used it!
Apple’s new iPad has taken grabbed the attention of almost everyone in the gadget industry. The new iPad was launched at a Apple’s media event in San Francisco on March 7th and was streamed live though many blogs and websites. However, let’s not get carried away with all the talks about the new iPad. We are forgetting an important aspect, the iOS software that powers all of the devices made by Apple. A small part of the media event included the talk about the latest 5.1 update to iOS. Only a few minutes were spent by the CEO, Tim Cook, to discuss the small additions. But after the event, device owners would start seeing the new iOS avaiable as an update. Read more below!

Apple is one of the most innovative companies in the IT industry at present. They keep developing and upgrading their devices on an ongoing basis. This is why they have been able to become the market leaders in a competitive market like that of smartphones. Currently, Apple has a number of recently launched products, such as the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 in the market. Yet, some people are still using their original iPhones. It is rare that a user will stick to using an older generation Apple handset when newer versions are released annually. As Apple keeps developing their operating system and technology, they upgrade and introduce new features. The iPhone 4S is an example of this, on which they have integrated a voice recognition feature, Siri. To stick to your old iPhone means you are missing out on the new features and applications.
As you know, Apple has pushed out the update of iOS. Have you updated your iPhone or iPad to iOS 5.1? I have already upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS 5.1. If you’re still considering whether you should upgrade the iOS, check out some of the favorite features come with the update.
Back in October, Scott Forstall the Senior Vice President iOS Software of Apple demoed the new Siri feature of iPhone 4S on stage. He told Siri to remind him to call his wife when he left work. You may wonder how Siri knows who his wife is.
In iOS 5, the contact profile comes with a new field named “Related People” for defining relationship. The mobile OS offers you two ways to configure the contact relationship, either manually or via Siri.
Not too long ago, we discussed about the “Invalid SIM” or “No SIM Card installed” problem reported for iPhone 4S. It now turns out that Apple has found a solution to deal with the issue with the new tweaked version of iOS 5.0.1 (Build 9A406) meant to fix SIM-related errors known to have been witnessed by a limited number of iPhone 4S customers.
Apple Inc. has seeded a second revision of its iOS 5.0.1 firmware on December 15, 2011, which besides decrypting key files that support the legality of a Siri port; offers a possible fix for the persistent problems reported not too long before of the iPhone 4S.
One of the recent news that will have the developers among our readers especially interested is that Apple has finally rolled out the Apple iOS 5.1 beta 2 version for developers. While there is one good development, the new iOS 5.1 beta 2, also has a few disappointments.
The major improvement that is found on the new iOS 5.1 beta 2 is the one that has been requested many times before, which is that all the photos taken from iOS 5.1 from any of your device can also be deleted from the Photo Stream. Plus that photo will also be automatically deleted from the Photo Stream of all your other iO 5.1 enabled devices. On the other hand the older photos will have to be treated, and deleted manually. This change is a major improvement as compared with the previous version, version 5. In iOS 5 if you can not delete a single photo from the Photo Stream, you must ether live with the photo, or delete the entire stream.
