iOS 7.1 Sees 18% Adoption Rate After 72 Hours

iOS 7.1 Sees 18% Adoption Rate After 72 HoursIt was earlier in the week that Apple had officially released iOS 7.1 after what seemed like forever. While the update from iOS 7 to iOS 7.1 is not as dramatic as the upgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 7, it seems that there is a steady pace of adoption. In fact previous numbers released by Chitika have revealed that the platform managed to gain a 6% adoption in 24 hours.

Now according to the latest figures also from Chitika, they have revealed that iOS 7.1’s adoption rate is now at 18% after 72 hours. This is considerably slower than iOS 7’s adoption rate which sat at almost 30% adoption in 72 hours. (more…)

    iOS 7.1 Walkthrough Video Released

    After what seemed like forever, Apple has recently released iOS 7.1 to the masses. Granted iOS 7.1 isn’t exactly a super huge update unlike iOS 6 to iOS 7, but apparently it has been deemed important enough where Apple has actually created a page on its website specifically for iOS 7.1.

    That being said, iOS 7.1 does bring a host of changes, improvements, and bug fixes to the operating system and if you were wondering what exactly has Apple changed, perhaps a 5 minute walkthrough video might allow you to educate yourself on the new features implemented into the OS. (more…)

    References To New Apple TV Found In iOS 7

    References To New Apple TV Found In iOS 7

    We first heard about the possibility of a refreshed Apple TV set-top box being released late last year. Often referred to as Apple’s hobby, the set-top box was rumored to be updated alongside the new iPads. The company did launch two new iPads late last year but it didn’t even mention the Apple TV. It was rumored soon after that the refreshed Apple TV will be released in early 2014. So far the company hasn’t said anything about its plans for this device, but seeing as how references to a new Apple TV have been discovered in iOS 7, there seems to be more weight to this theory.

    Bill To Make Kill Switch Mandatory On Mobile Devices Sold In California

    It has been reported multiple times in the past that lawmakers have been leaning on OEMs to bundle anti-theft technology with their smartphones and tablets, most prominent backers of this cause include the attorney general for New York and the San Francisco district attorney. Now, California’s Mark Leno, a Democratic State Senator, has introduced a bill which would make it mandatory for OEMs to include some kind of a “kill switch” in their mobiles or tablets before they’re sold in the state of California. This bill is being backed by the San Francisco district attorney George Gascón.

    iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Closes More Jailbreak Exploits

    iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Closes More Jailbreak ExploitsIt has been a little over a month since the Evad3rs team release their untethered Evasi0n iOS 7 jailbreak for iOS devices. Now the bad news is that if you were hoping to upgrade to iOS 7.1, you might want to hold off on doing so because according to reports, it looks like Apple is wasting no time in closing up the exploits used to jailbreak iOS 7. We guess this is to be expected, although there are times when Apple misses an exploit here and there that allows the team to continue jailbreaking the iOS platform even after updates.

    Apple had reportedly closed off one critical exploit in iOS 7.1 beta 4, and now according to Evasi0n hacker, iH8sn0w, it seems that with the recent release of the latest iOS 7.1 beta 5, it closed an additional number of exploits that could have been used to make a future jailbreak. This is not to say that jailbreaking it would be impossible, but it would definitely make things a lot harder. Of course you can choose to keep your jailbreak by not updating to iOS 7.1, but given that iOS 7.1 is bringing about a host of major changes and some redesigns, chances are you might be tempted to update in order to experience these changes. There’s still no word on when iOS 7.1 will be released to the public, so for the sake of jailbreakers out there, here’s hoping the hackers will be able to find something new between now and then.
