Update: The update fixes a serious security exploit that exposed contacts, texts, calls, and emails.

Apple today released the iOS 9.3.5 software update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The bug fix update follows the recent release of iOS 9.3.4, which closed a recent jailbreak hole, and iOS 9.3.3, which was tested for several weeks and also included bug fixes. iOS 9.3.5 could also be the last update to iOS 9 devices and the last iOS 9 update in general before iOS 10 is released this fall.

Check the back of your drawers – your old iPod could be worth big bucks to a collector

The discontinuation of the iPod Classic back in 2014 gave prices of used models a boost in the following holiday season, some models selling for up to four times the original price. A Guardian report says that collectors are now paying even more for some models, with special editions selling for as much as $90,000.

Terapeak, a company which tracks pricing of collectibles on eBay, […] found that classic iPods in their original packaging were priced at collectibles levels – one U2 special edition, Terapeak noted, sold in November for $90,000.

Post to the community

I’m an independent app developer from Melbourne, Australia, and I’ve recently released an update to my music app, Harken for iPad, iPhone and iPod which I’ve been building in my spare time since 2012.

Harken is an elegant and easy to use alternative to the standard Apple Music app for listening to the music that you’ve bought with the iTunes app on your iDevice or synched from your computer using iTunes – yes some of us still do that.

It has an extremely intuitive interface that makes it really easy to find music by album, artist or genre, numerous time saving gestures, and a handy search function to filter large music libraries. I originally designed it to be particularly easy to use in the car so I included a button which lets you prevent the display from sleeping.

 

You can read more about the app via my website http://www.jamminapps.com and the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/harken-music-player-for-ipad/id540251190?ls=1&mt=8

As it does regularly with older products, Apple is about to move a bunch of Macs, iPods, and accessories to obsolete status, meaning the products will no longer be eligible for service or repair support through Apple retail stores or authorized third-party channels. So if you happen to have one of these products and need a hardware repair of some kind, you’ll have until early December to do so at an Apple Store or authorized service provider.

After a few months in beta, Apple has today released iOS 9 to the world for everyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Download the update from Settings on your iOS device, then tap ‘General’ and select ‘Software Update’. The required free space for installing iOS 9 is a lot lower than iOS 8, at around 1.3 GB, which should make it easier to upgrade your devices right away. Any device that runs iOS 8 can upgrade to iOS 9 and, naturally, iOS 9 will also ship preinstalled on Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus when they are released next week.

But what exactly is new in iOS 9? Read on for a walkthrough of all the new features and changes in Apple’s latest iteration of its mobile operating system …

Although we may be just three days away from the unveiling of the iPhone 6S, which will mirror the iPhone 6 in appearance, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is already looking forward to the iPhone after the iPhone 6S, which would be named ‘iPhone 7’ if Apple followed previous year trends. In the tock year, Apple has typically changed the way the iPhone looks externally and apparently 2016 will be no different. The report says the next iPhone will approach iPod touch levels of thinness, with a body between 6 and 6.5mm. For comparison, the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are 6.9 and 7.1mm respectively.

It also indicates that the next-generation iPhone will use the same Force Touch technology as the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 6S and 6S Plus as Apple suppliers have invested heavily in the feature for this year’s devices.
