iOS 7.1.2 Stories June 30, 2014

Pangu untethered jailbreak still works with iOS 7.1.2

Apple today seeded iOS 7.1.2, and we’ve confirmed that the recently-released Pangu jailbreak does indeed work perfectly fine with the new build. While Pangu was released after Apple seeded 7.1.2 to carriers (meaning that the likelihood of the security holes being patched was fairly low), there was still the slim possibility that Apple would make a few changes and patch the holes before pushing the update to the masses.

But alas, the untethered jailbreak that we told you about last week is still capable of jailbreaking iOS 7.1.2, and you can still follow the very same guide that we published if you need help getting the famed Cydia application running on your device. It’s worth noting, however, that the jailbreak also recently got an update to support OS X, and that we would recommend you use this version if you’re planning on jailbreaking your iOS 7.1.2 device.

iOS 7.1.2 Stories June 20, 2014

iOS 7.1.2 rumored to be coming soon with Mail, iBeacon, and security fixes

Apple is preparing an update to its iOS 7 mobile operating system that will fix issues with Mail attachment encryption, iBeacon connectivity, and security problems that exist in the current version, reports MacRumors. There is also speculation that the new version could make it easier for users to disconnect their phone numbers from iMessage, but there’s no indication that this will be in the 7.1.2 update.

The update is also said to include a possible fix for a glitch that allows access to certain apps from the lockscreen when a passcode is set as we showed you earlier this month.

iOS 7.1 was released earlier this year on March 10, 2014, while iOS 7.1.1 was released on April 22, 2014.

The build is reportedly in the hands of carriers for approval now, and could be released to the public by June 27th.
