Why iPhone iOS 8 Jailbreak Became Pointless

It might have become pointless to perform iOS 8 jailbreak on the iPhone and iPad. Here is more information about this jailbreak.

Apple will soon release its new iOS 8 to users and a lot of people are already waiting for hackers to release iOS 7.1.2 jailbreak. Most iDevice owners would be happy to see the new jailbreak 24 hours after the official launch of the new firmware, and hackers are as excited about this as people are.

As Stefan Esser better known in the jailbreaking community as i0n1c notes, there will be no point in creating jailbreak for iOS 8. This hacker is actually trying to create the first firmware 8 jailbreaking solution and present it quickly after the official release of the operating system update, just “in a few hours” after the launch.

Are there still reasons to jailbreak iOS 8? 

The new firmware has a lot of new features with over 4+ thousand app programming interfaces, numerous settings and extra options not available in previous firmware versions. Users mostly jailbreak their iPhones and iPads because they want to install third-party games, apps, interesting tweaks, hacks and customization features that will never appear in the official App Store but are present in the jailbreak app store called Cydia.

Apple is trying to do everything to patch holes in exploits found by hackers as quickly as possible, introduce more options for users to prevent them from jailbreaking and even hiring famous hackers to work for the ‘fruit’ giant.

 Why There Is No Point in Jailbreaking iOS 8

There will be a lot of new extensions in the next firmware thus iPhone iOS 8 jailbreak might become pointless for users who prefer not voiding Apple warranty on their new smartphone or tablet device. People who wish to get more will continue jailbreaking and pay no attention at the slight signal that points to the end of jailbreaking.

What do you think about all the features added by Apple and promised in the future releases? Do you think jailbreak will leave forever or will it one day truly become aimless?

T-Mobile Umbrella Plan Might Get New Accessories

T-Mobile news say that this carrier is planning to move from its hardware installment plans offered on iPhones, iPads and other gadgets to accessories deals. The company might begin offering its customers the new installment plans from July 20, 2014.

It is currently possible to purchase the new iPhone or other brand phone, tablet from T-Mobile with installment plan right now. But this should change soon as the mobile operator will kick off the new idea this July.

Extending the installment plans beyond popular devices is a good thing to do. There are rumors that assure the new offer will come under the plan umbrella. However, it is not clean whether customers will get the deal only if they purchase the new handset / tablet or without such a purchase.

We have no idea what iPhone T-Mobile caveats might be. It could be a good deal if you can pay $8 each month within 2 years for the headphones worth $199 or something like this. At the same time, users like to purchase accessories for a full price instead of paying parts for long 24 months.

If the new T-Mobile plans are real and you can buy the brand new iPhone 5S along with accessories through installment program you will still get a locked device. Don’t worry because you can easily unlock the smartphone on any iOS version using IMEI factory unlock that is fast, guarantees the safe results and permanent unlock.
