Jay Freeman, developer of the Cydia software store for the iPhone, filed a lawsuit accusing the Apple App Store of being a monopoly. His company asks a U.S. District Court to force Apple to let iPhone users get apps from rival software stores.
Having last year created the first breakthrough jailbreak for up-to-date iOS devices in ages, the unc0ver team announced Wednesday that its new unc0ver 5 tool is on the way — and will work with every signed version of iOS.
That includes iOS 11.0 through the new iOS 13.5 which only arrived earlier the same day.
One of Apple’s biggest foes in the courtroom, Corellium, is making it possible for iPhone users to install Google’s Android operating system on Apple’s devices.
Corellium released the first public beta build of its Android for iPhone software today called Project Sandcastle. The software currently only works on a couple of iPhones but if you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to have Android 10 running on Apple hardware, this is the closest you’re going to get.
A security researcher claims to have discovered an expliot that could lead to jailbreaken iOS models released as recently as 2017. Just as significantly, checkm8 supposedly can’t be patched by Apple, so any jailbroken device will remain so, no matter which iOS version it’s running.
Apple just introduced an update to iOS 12.4 that likely fixes a security flaw that allowed a jailbreak to be created for this version — the first in years.
There don’t appear to be any other changes in iOS 12.4.1.

This week’s CultCast is a hot one! We discuss: The useful iPhone X gestures you haven’t heard about; why you need to check out Apple’s new YouTube channel; why folks are mad as heck about Apple Watch 3’s data prices. Plus, it’s the end of an era: Jailbreaking is dead. (And stay tuned for our favorite movies of 2017.)
Two of Cydia’s largest repositories have been shutdown as jailbreaking dies out. ModMy and ZodTTD are no longer available, leaving BigBoss as the only major source still available to those who want apps and tweaks you can’t find in the App Store.
It’s been months since the last iOS 10 jailbreak has been released. And according to the guys that originally made jailbreaking a huge craze, you shouldn’t get your hopes up about jailbreaking your iPhone ever again.
In fact, even if you could jailbreak iOS 10, Jay Freeman — the guy who invented Cydia, which was the App Store before the App Store was the App Store — says he doesn’t recommend it.
Jailbreaking is officially dead.
With WWDC 2017 right around the corner, it’s that time of the year when Apple can fix all the annoyances of iOS 10 and unveil something truly revolutionary for the next generation of iPhones and iPads.
Apple is expected to show off all the major features of iOS 11 at the WWDC in a couple of weeks. Surprisingly, the rumor mill has been quiet on what to expect, but that hasn’t stopped a flurry of speculation. We’ve got some ideas of our own too that we really want to see come to iOS 11.
This is what we want in Apple’s next big update:
