AirDrop is the new feature of iOS 7 released on June 10. Apple launched the first beta of its next mobile operating system in time for WWDC 2013 conference. OS X Lion users are familiar with AirDrop option. As for iPhone / iPad owners, they are now able to either test it on their devices after installing iOS 7 beta 1 or read our review and take a look at images.
We’ve seen the updated iOS launched for developers earlier this week. Now we wonder what the next iPhone could be like. Searching the web, we’ve learned that Apple might consider releasing iPhone with big screen, affordable models with the price starting at $99 and even gadgets in different colors, and not just black and white.
Always thought that iPhone hacking is a laborious process that requires a lot of time, special skills and software tools. But three U.S. hackers have proven that you can unlock the iPhone in a couple of minutes. Three experts from the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) performed at the Black Hat USA conference in 2013 with the report “Mactans: the introduction of malicious code in the iOS device via a special charger”.
On Monday, this week, Apple released the first testing version of the upcoming firmware. But many iPhone users got: “We’re unable to complete your activation error”. This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program.If you are a member of the Program, please register your device in the iPhone Developer Program Portal” while installing iOS 7 beta, so let’s try to get it working. The fix is very easy to follow and you don’t need any additional software except the latest iOS 6.1.3 (or iOS 6.1.4 if you are iPhone 5 users). You don’t need neither Redsn0w / Sn0wbreeze nor SHSH blobs.
Apple competitors and fans should know this news. It simply blows up your mind as the Cupertino-based iPhone maker came up with a new idea on how users can interact with their devices. USPTO has revealed a new patent app that is simple yet interesting, and it can actually change the future of tablet computers or smartphones.
With the introduction of the first iOS 7 beta a lot of users ask themselves when we could possible see iOS 7 jailbreak release. I have some thoughts that I would love to share with our dear readers. Some news is good as everyone is able to upgrade to the latest firmware version even if they don’t have a developer account or registered UDID.
Hackers can do a lot of little miracles for iPhone users. Recently they have released hacks for AT&T iPhone, then for Verizon and just recently for Sprint iPhones that allowed users increasing cell signal and getting faster download speeds. This line of great solutions can now boast a new solution.
The first biggest announcement of this week was the release of iOS 7 beta 1 [build 11A4372q] and you can install it now without UDID or developer account. A lot of developers and ordinary iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users quickly downloaded the newest firmware to check out its features. Still there are still people who are afraid to risk and update to the first beta of the next operating system for Apple devices.
It is time to think about iOS 7 beta unlocking on iPhone 4, 4S and 5 only, because 3GS comes as not supported for the new firmware. It is sad but we can’t do nothing with that yet. However we still can unlock iOS 7 beta 1 on all other iPhone models to be prepared for final release this fall. Also it is believed that in order to use iOS 7 beta 1 on a mobile gadget, you must have a developer account. But we have instructions on how to setup beta version on iPhone bypassing UDID registration and Apple account. Installation is as simple as restoring the firmware in iTunes.
This information will be useful to iOS developers and users who have downloaded and installed the new iOS 7 beta 1 presented by Apple on the first day of WWDC 2013. Even though this firmware has been originally meant for developers with a registered UDID and active account at iOS Dev Center we all know that anyone who is not afraid of taking risks can update to this beta and see what iOS 7 features will be available to public in fall.
