According to 9To5Mac, the Cupertino-based giant is going to present Mavericks update in late October. The company will hold off its release to focus on iOS smartphone line launch and iOS 7 firmware planned for the period between September 15 and 28 when all Apple employees are not allows taking a vacation and days off because the iPhone maker is to be busy with pushing out the next-generation handsets.

It is necessary to note that iOS 7 compliments OS X 10.9 with some options. It would be much cooler if both software versions appear at the same time. Users would be much happier getting routes on Mac and sending them wirelessly to the smartphone.

Last year the Mac manufacturer presented its tow OS X systems right after reporting its Q4 financial results in October. This year it might happen the same way. Apple might firstly share the earnings results and then present Mavericks upgrade.

Download OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Build 12F36 [for Mac Developers]



Mac developers have been seeded the next update to OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 known under the build name 12F36. This is just another upgrade with minor changes and the same task. Devs should focus on particular fields during the testing period and Apple should fix any problems and issues discovered and reported by them.

It’s been a while since we got the previous seed named 12F30. OS X devs saw it about a month ago. It is interesting that some people actually were able to download a pre-launch build called 12F35 with some changes which made users hope that Apple presents the 12F36 version a week ago.

It’s hard to hope for anything with iOS giant. The Cupertino-based company likes to add changes, change plans and catch users by surprise. You should agree that it’s not so cool when something happens according to a particular schedule and no news is possible.

The pre-release, as rumors state, came with an enhanced Xsan reliability and other changes. For example, it is believed to solve a problem that didn’t let Mail display messages. It has also improved AFP file transfer work over Wi-Fi and solved the bug that caused problems with automatic screen saver work.

The latest build 12F36 for OS X 10.8.5 has no known problems. We don’t know which improvements it shows to developers as no one has reported the changes yet. Mac maker asked its testers to see how Graphics, PDF function, Wi-Fi and some other options perform.

Registered Mac developers are welcome to upgrade through Software Update option in the Mac App Store. They can also log in into Mac Dev Center’saccount and download OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 latest release from there.

By the way, Apple has presented a new Safari 6.1 beta to developers so more things are available for testing.

Jailbreak iOS 7 beta Is Possible According to Ryan Petrich

It has been almost three weeks since Apple seeded iOS 7 beta to developers of iOS Developer program, so we’re quite sure that many of you’re wondering if iOS 7 can be jailbroken.

We might have just got the first clues that iOS 7 can be jailbroken.

Ryan Petrich, developer of popular jailbreak tweaks such as Activator tweeted a screenshot, which shows Activator jailbreak tweak running on iOS 7 beta.

View image on Twitter

As you can see in the screenshot anove, Petrich seems to have managed to get Activator running on an iPod that clearly seems to be running iOS 7 beta.

It is not clear if Petrich has discovered a new exploit to jailbreak iOS 7 or as iClarified points out it is comex’s developer account based exploit that was used by hackers to root iOS devices. It was referred to as failbreak and could not be released to the public as it needed a developer account.

Hackers don’t release a jailbreak for beta versions for obvious reasons, so don’t expect a jailbreak tool anytime soon.

In total there is over 23 million Jailbroken devices in circulation! There were some staggering statistics shared by Evad3rs team member Pod2G a couple of days ago.

Recently, Evasi0n was updated to version 1.5.1 to include an updated Cydia packages list. Essentially this will mean upon launching Cydia, not as much data will need to be downloaded from the community sources because it was already included upon Jailbreaking.

Download Evasi0n v1.5.1 With Updated Cydia Packages List

This is some good news for new Jailbreakers finally taking the plunge, but is not worth re-Jailbreaking with obviously because you can get an updated packages list by simply tapping the Refresh button in the Changes tab.

Unlock iPhone Using Cydia Tweak. Classic View

Classic is classic. You can install Cydia tweak to unlock iPhone and dive into the past. Control Unlocker, developed by Stevie Hetelekides, is a jailbreak tweak that replaces the iconic “slide to unlock” slider with an NES-style controller.

This tweak allows you to set the passcode to any combination or to your favorite cheat code from NES that’s embedded in your brain like, up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start, which is the cheat code for Nintendo’s “Contra” to get 9 lives.

Once installed, just go to your settings and you can set your passcode there. If you accidentally go to the lock screen before you set your passcode, the default is A, B, A, B.

contorlunlocker

Make sure when you’re typing in your sequence, you check to make sure each button is recognized when you press it in the sequence preview or you may get locked out of your device.

There is also an option to add whatever text you’d like to the top of the controller.

You can download Control Unlocker from the BigBoss repo in Cydia for free.

How to Check iPhone Carrier for Free Using Redsn0w


I will show you how to check iPhone carrier for free using Redsn0w. This tip is well-known before but many forgot about it now. 

After Apple company made iPhone unlocking impossible for such popular unlocks in the past like Gevey Sim, Ultrasn0w unlock, SAM and others the new method arose – IMEI unlocking. Why impossible, simply because Gevey and ultrasn0w depend on the old baseband version and SAM is depend on saved activation tickets.

From my experience there are not many users who still having old baseband for Ultrasn0w or Gevey and only few users who have activation tickets saved for SAM unlocking.

More Releases by Apple: Remote Desktop 3.7, betas for Xcode 5, OS X Server

Apple on Monday seeded the latest builds of the forthcoming Xcode 5, OS X Server, and Remote Desktop, adding to a glut of beta software released earlier today as the company works to bring its developer center systems back online from an extended downtime.
Xcode 5

Coming on the heels of Monday's release of the fourth iOS 7 beta, iTunes 11.1 with iTunes Radio, and Apple TV 5.4, Apple pushed Xcode 5 Developer Preview 4, OS X Server Preview 4, and Apple Remote Desktop 3.7 to developers.

According to people familiar with the latest Xcode 5 preview, Apple has further refined the coding tool's Simulator, Instruments, Interface Builder, and Xcode Server, as well as fixed a number of minor problems that previously caused the program to crash. As the software is not a final version, bugs still exist, though they are said to be minor.

OS X Server Preview 4 also received minor bug fixes and enhancements, though nothing substantial was reported in the accompanying release notes. Finally, Apple Remote Desktop version 3.7 saw its first beta seed with no major issues.

All beta versions are available for download from Apple's developer center.

The pre-release software versions come amid a wave of beta seeds after Apple's Dev Center was compromised by an intruder and consequently taken down two weeks ago. The downtime affected Apple's two-week release cycle for new iOS 7 beta and OS X Mavericks builds, though it appears the company is looking to return to its previous schedule.

Apple Rules the Market of Electronic World

In the second calendar quarter this year, Apple retained its long-standing title of most profitable consumer electronics company in the world. Earlier this month, Samsung posted unaudited earnings and estimated that its quarterly operating profit climbed to a record $8.3 billion. Apple reported its June-quarter earnings on Tuesday and revealed that quarterly net profit came in at $6.9 billion while its operating fell to $9.2 billion.

Samsung did manage to widen its smartphone unit sales lead, however — an earlier report estimated that Samsung’s second-quarter smartphone shipments totaled a record 71 million units, crushing Apple’s June-quarter iPhone sales, which totaled 31.2 million units.

Samsung Most Profitable Consumer Electronics Company

 It has now been eight months since Apple last launched new mobile devices, though, and the company is expected to release a number of new products this fall including a completely redesigned iPad and the highly anticipated iPhone 5S.

UPDATE: Samsung’s unaudited results include operating profit, not net profit, so the original claims made in this post were inaccurate. Apple posted a $9.2 billion operating profit in the June quarter, while Samsung’s operating profit was $8.3 billion.

The headline and body of this post have been updated to correct an earlier error that compared Samsung’s operating profit to Apple’s net profit.

No Bootrom Exploit for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 7 beta Jailbreaking

To start the week off we had a ton of exciting news to share in the Jailbreaking community. First off none other than P0sixninja announced his new project called OpenJailbreak that aims at making developing Jailbreaks easier. Then Ryan Petrich shared a screenshot of Activator running on what appeared to be a Jailbroken 5th generation iPod Touch running iOS 7.

MuscleNerd States There Is No A5+ Bootrom Exploit
After Petrich shared this image many started to wonder whether or not a bootrom exploit had been discovered as previously rumored by P0sixninja. As the two announcements back-to-back seemed kind of strange to not be a coincidence.

MuscleNerdEndOfJailbreaking

Sadly MuscleNerd chimed in today over Twitter stating that there is no A5+ bootrom exploit and not even a bootrom dump. Although this crushes hopes of having all A5 devices Jailbroken for life via a tethered Jailbreak like A4 devices, MuscleNerd has remained optimistic the end of Jailbreaking is nowhere in sight.

Download iOS 6.1.3 IPSW Using Direct Links for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

After a couple of betas either side of the impromptu bug fix releases of iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.2, Apple has released final version of iOS 6.1.3 for users on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The all-important direct download links and details – are coming up right after the break.

The Asian market is very important for Apple’s future business, and although Apple Maps has been subject to much scrutiny since arriving in September, the Japanese version has hitherto lacked even some of the more basic navigation features. That’s all changed with iOS 6.1.3 though, and as well as the implementation of turn-by-turn and better optimization of directions to favor highways over country lanes, Maps in Japan has also added a bunch of 3D landmarks. This is in addition to the improvements made to the Maps from server-side last week.

iOS 613 logo

Apart from the Maps update, Apple has also plugged in some security flaws related to lock screen bypass found in both iOS 6.1 and 6.1.2. Of course, with the newly-released software, many of you will be anxious to know whether the jailbreak has been plugged or not. Evasi0n iOS 6.x jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 has reportedly been patched in this update.

At this moment in time, if the preservation of jailbreak is high upon your agenda, please do not update your firmware. There is no way for newer devices to be downgraded, so if you update by accident, you will be stuck with no jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3.

If you want to update to iOS 6.1.3 firmware, there are numerous ways you can go about it. As well as downloading through iTunes and updating, you can also use the OTA (over-the-air) feature, which is located under Settings > General > Software Update. While there’s nothing wrong with taking the OTA route, it is highly recommended you connect to a PC or Mac and update that way.

iOS 613 final

The firmware specific to each device is as follows:
Update x1: Post updated with official direct download links added above for all the supported iOS devices.

iPhone 4 Is the Most Popular iDevice

Apple Inc. is known for drawing crowds with its latest and greatest technology. But one of its most potent weapons in some markets came out three years ago.

The iPhone 4, originally released in 2010, is helping to power Apple's sales in price-conscious markets such as India and counter stiff competition from an array of rivals selling smartphones powered by Google Inc.'s Android software.

That three-year-old smartphone played a major role on Tuesday, when Apple surprised investors with third-quarter sales of 31.2 million iPhones, 20% more than a year earlier and 18% more than the 26.5 million analysts had been expecting.

While Apple said the current iPhone 5 is still its top seller by far, the company added that demand for the iPhone 4 is a key reason for the rise in smartphone sales.

Not that selling older models in emerging markets is a new strategy for the company. And it has potential downsides, as lower-priced phones can squeeze gross profit margins.

But Apple, despite its image as a premium player, is adopting more aggressive tactics to sell its oldest smartphone in markets where demand is growing quickly and many buyers have never purchased a smartphone before.

Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, said the number of first-time smartphone customers the iPhone 4 attracts are impressive. "We want to attract as many of these buyers as we can," he said during a conference call with analysts Tuesday.

The iPhone 4 also is helping to bolster revenue at a time the Cupertino, Calif., company is suffering from a lack of new models to attract such customers.

Apple has been developing a less-expensive smartphone model that is likely to be introduced later this year, people familiar with the situation have said. Unlike the iPhone 4 and 4S, which have smaller-sized screens, the lower-priced device will be the same size as the iPhone 5, but without the signature metal casing, according to these people.
