A few months ago we teamed up with two of the leaders in the iPhone/iPad/tech repair business iFixyouri and Myphones Unlimited to help you guys fix or get big bucks for your old or broken devices. We’ve got solid feedback and have some offers to provide today. For getting cash, we can get you an additional $10 on cash back by using code “marchmadness“. It will add $10 across the board on all items to an already high cash back bounty. It obviously won’t work on non-value/recycled items however. But that’s an extra $10-er in your pocket and the code is valid through the end of March and is a great way to get some cash to buy stuff unveiled for Apple’s March event.

As for repairs, I’ve successfully used iFixyouri many times in the past but I thought I’d put together a quick video or 3 on what the process is like:

I don’t often do this, but this year I think it’s important; Apple is more open & receptive to feedback today than it ever has been. With iOS 9 and iPad Pro, iOS has made a tremendous leap in the past year on iPad. With that in mind, I wanted to note down all the things in my head that I really want to see the iOS computing platform grow to cover.

What follows is an unordered list of things I’d like to see from Apple over the next few years, starting with the easy & obvious things upfront. Most of these have Radars filed against them, but since they’re more often than not dupes of existing Radars I won’t post the numbers here. Most of this is about iOS, but not all – I’ll say upfront that I don’t think OS X has a future with the way it’s going currently, and has been running on fumes for most of iOS’ lifetime. Even if you disagree with where I’m coming from, perhaps there’s still something for you here.

Here’s the nasty bug that has everyone complaining to Apple:

Screenshot 2015-05-27 12.34.06

effective.

Power

لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ 冗

Send that to someone with an iPhone it turns their phone off


Copy all above the line and text it to another iPhone and it will shut it off.

I wonder what other things we can control with this, rather than just “power off the device.”

Any ideas?

Edit 1: you don’t need that first line, plus i fixed it

edit 2: a list of things we discovered so far

  • it only seems to work if your phone is not on safe mode it always works
  • on a jailbroken phone it shoots you into safe mode…could means that it might be related to a Springboard vulnerability
  • it doesn’t work if the person you are sending is looking at your texts, they can be anywhere else on their iPhone

edit 3: something i’ve noticed, apple changes the api with every new ios, right? maybe it has something to do with that?

edit 4: what’s weird is I’m on iOS 8.1.2 and it crashes my phone as well, so this is not only on the latest OS

edit 5: we found out what it is. it is due to how the banner notifications process the Unicode text. The banner briefly attempts to present the incoming text and then “gives up” thus the crash creds to /u/sickestdancer98

edit 6: this also works with WhatsApp (aparently)

edit 7: Idea We could make an app with this notification called “Respring”, make it so it crashes the app so your at your homescreen, and then it sends you a notification with this text and your phone resprings!
