Saïgon Jailbreak For iOS 10.2.1 Released For 64-bit iPhone And iPads

Although we have been in iOS 11 for almost three weeks now, there are many users who continue to make use of some of the previous versions of iOS 10.3.3, the last version of iOS 10 available until the launch of iOS 11. For all those who today are still using iOS 10.2.1 and are lovers of Jailbreak, we have good news, as the hacker, Abraham Masri has released Saïgon, a Jailbreak for iOS 10.2.1 devices and that is 64-bit. Unfortunately, if we have a 32-bit device, long ago the hackers stopped betting on these devices since Apple has stopped selling them. The latest iPhone model with a 32-bit processor was the iPhone 5 / 5c.

Apple released iOS 10.2.1, in January, to patch various vulnerabilities that had been detected, therefore, the Jailbreak of Yalu, which was compatible with iOS 10-10.2 stopped working. Thanks to the Saïgon, created by Abraham Masri, we can do Jailbreak again to the following devices, as long as they are managed by iOS 10.2.1:

  • iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE
  • iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad Pro
  • iPod Touch 6G

Devices not compatible with iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak Saïgon

  • iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and earlier models.
  • iPod touch 5G and earlier models.
  • iPad mini, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4

It should be remembered that currently no downgrade to any version of iOS 10, except with the iPhone 6s, which still has the signatures window open for all users who want to download iOS 11 to the latest version of iOS 10 that signed Apple. At the moment there is no IPA file so we will have to create the file through Xcode from the available repository in GitHub and subsequently make use of Cydia Impactor.

iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak Seems Possible

iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak

Due to many reasons, people use jailbreak and people were waiting and hoping for iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak as well. So in this article, we will tell you about new hope in that matter.

We recently saw on Twitter that there was talk of a jailbreak to iOS 10.2.1, this did not put much interest in the world of jailbreak or Apple users because as you know the vast majority have their iDevice in the version iOS 11 and in other cases iOS 10.3.3 if not an iOS higher than the one supported by this jailbreak.

Adam Donenfeld, a famous security researcher who has demonstrated his competence with exploits in the past, has begun to rumor that he may be developing a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.3. Note that he does not specifically say that he is working on something, however, he did not exclude that possibility and suggested he could work on it.

iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak

After a user did the stupid question (probably satire) “eta jb”, Donenfeld responded with a very positive answer, which is rarely seen when people ask these annoying questions. He points out that, since the exploits are already available for that version of iOS, it could technically work on it. Keep in mind the word “technically” since it is very likely that you are not working on a jailbreak tool for iOS 10.3.3 at this time, however, do not shamelessly rule out the possibility that something will come of it in the future.

We have not yet seen a Donenfeld jailbreak tool, however, he is the security researcher who discovered the Ziva exploit used in the Saigon security leak and has contributed to the community in many other ways.

While it is possible that Donenfeld can launch a iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak, do not assume it will. You can keep your hopes up, but do not harass him on Twitter by asking him.

What do you think? If there is a possibility that Adam Donenfelt will launch a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.3? Let us know in the comments section!

Save Webpages to iBooks as PDF on iPhone & iPad

In this article, we will tell you that how you can save Safari webpages to iBooks as PDF on your iPhone or iPad in iOS 9.

iOS and Safari increasingly offer more options to store our favorite websites, interesting news, articles that we want to read later or just remember that we have seen them. For this, we have functions like the Reading List or favorites, which are also synchronized with iCloud so that we can have them and share them among all our devices without any problem. In addition, there are very comfortable third-party applications, such as Pocket, or even social networks, such as Facebook, which now allows you to keep the publications that we want easily.

But the Reading List is not always enough, and these media require an internet connection or do not allow us to view the web as a PDF and save it to our iPhone or iPad. That is why iOS does not solve this problem and shows us an easy way to save the web page, article or post with PDF format in iBooks, something that can be very useful, and that leaves better results than other methods such as capturing the screen manually.

Save Safari Webpages to iBooks as PDF

The Apple method is as follows. First, we do not need third party applications or download any special software, just open Safari and go to the web that we want to save. Once we have it open and loaded, click on the share button in the top menu of the browser, and among all the options we choose Save PDF in iBooks. If it does not appear, click on the three points on the right by sliding the apps and activate the iBooks option.

Once we save it, the iBooks app will open automatically and our PDF will appear with different pages in which we will see the whole saved web, in three or four parts, depending on its size.

Manage the PDF file in iOS and the iCloud

This PDF, as well as any other, you can save it not only in the app of the native books but in others like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.

Was this tutorial useful to save safari webpages as pdf in iBooks? Do you think they should include a Finder in iOS? You can comment your opinion.

Stop app store videos playing automatically

With the arrival of iOS 11, Apple has decided to give much more importance to the App Store and the way in which allows us to discover new apps. In this article, we will tell you that how to stop app store videos playing automatically because these can be annoying and can cost us data usage.

Apple’s new application store for iOS now offers much more extensive content, with reviews written by experts in the company’s own apps, promotional videos, best selections and, ultimately, much more content than the developers offer at the time to cover the tab of your apps.

All this content makes the App Store much more useful and complete, but also generates a new problem: the loading of videos consumes a large volume of mobile data and automatic playback is enabled by default; even when we are connected through the telephone operator’s network.

Luckily Apple has thought that this can be an inconvenience for people with a data rate with few GB included and it is possible to disable automatic playback or limit it to WiFi connections.

Stop App Store Videos Playing Automatically

The steps to disable autoplay of videos from the App Store on iOS 11 are as follows:

  1. Go to Settings – iTunes Store and App Store.
  2. Touch Auto Play Video.
  3. Choose the option you prefer:
    • Yes: keeps playback active through WiFi or mobile connectivity.
    • Wi-Fi only: Only allows playback if your iPhone or iPad is connected to a WiFi network.
    • No: completely off autoplay.

This is all. From now on the videos from the App Store will only be played automatically according to the option chosen in point three.

The videos that play without user intervention are increasingly present in different places: social networks, websites of all kinds, commercials. It is a great way to get our attention and in certain cases can be useful, but it is also a way to make our data rates run out without almost realizing it. So tell us that do you able to stop app store videos from playing automatically.

QR codes are used in lots of different situations. They are commonly used in information points at the foot of the street, they are present in the packaging of many products and in an endless number of different places. Its main function is to take the user to a website where you can find more information about the product or service or give a quick access to download an app to give some examples.

HEIF: iOS 11’s new Image Format on iPhone & iPad

HEIF: iOS 11's new Image Format on iPhone & iPad

The arrival of iOS 11 and High Sierra to Apple devices have brought many changes and one of them is the introduction of the HEIF image format.

This new format comes with the intention to completely replace the obsolete JPEG and offer a series of very important advantages that we will see next.

Key benefits of the new iPhone and iPad HEIF format on iOS 11

The first thing that stands out from the HEIF format is that it is not simply an image file, but is a container that can store different contents. Thanks to this in this format it is possible to save image sequences, image editing information, etc.

As you will be imagining the format is perfect to store the iOS Live Photos and also so that when we edit a photo (whether applying a filter, making a cut, changing the orientation) changes are reversible at all times and not the original information is destroyed.

HEIF: iOS 11's new Image Format on iPhone & iPad

Another strength of HEIF is that it offers support for 16-bit colors, compared to 8-bit JPEG. In addition, all this achieves a much better compression than the format we have been using so far, which translates to less space occupied in the memory of devices (in general a HEIF occupies half that same image in JPEG).

One of the main reasons why the HEIF format has not been used so far is that the compression it offers needs enough computing power. The processors of smartphones were short for working with files of this type in real time (especially to encode them, that is, to generate them from a photo made from the device itself). This is something that has already been overcome and today there is no problem to work with them, even Apple has integrated hardware compatibility with this format so that working with them is the same as working with a JPEG at a glance (from the processor A10 Fusion).

iOS 11's new HEIF image format

We can not assure that HEIF will replace the JPEG as a “standard” for photo and the GIF as a sequence of images in a short period of time, but it will certainly get a big boost thanks to Apple’s support and surely other developers will start offering it native form in their operating systems and apps.

iPhone, iPad, and Mac compatible with HEIF Image Format in ios 11

As I said before, the HEIF format requires that the devices be compatible. In the case of iPhone, iPad and Mac all can read this format provided they have installed iOS 11 or High Sierra, but only some can create them.

The devices compatible with the files HEIF according to Apple are:

  • iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X.
  • iPad Pro of 2017 (10.5 and 12.9 inches).
  • Mac computers with Intel Core Six-Generation processors.

Of course, the above-mentioned devices that the company launches also will be compatible with the HEIF format unless for any reason Apple decides that it is time to change strategy and use another format; something that does not seem too likely.

transfer your iPhone and iPad photos to Windows 10

Spending the photos we do with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to a Windows computer is something that should be very intuitive and simple, but unfortunately, it is not always so and many people have doubts about how to transfer photos from iPhone or iPad to Windows 10 or 8.

If you find yourself in this situation, in the following lines we want to show you several ways to transfer photos from an iOS device to a Windows PC step by step. This way you will have no doubts and you will know how to store all your photos on a computer to store and organize them to your liking.

Using the Windows 10 or Windows 8 Photos app To Transfer Photos From iPhone or iPad

One of the innovations that included Windows 8 at the time and that has also maintained Windows 10 is the Photos application. Windows users can keep organized all their photographs and can also use it to transfer the images taken from iPhone, iPad, Android or any other type of camera to the computer in a simple way.

To transfer photos from iPhone photos to a PC using the Photos app the steps that you must follow are the following:

  1. Connect the iOS device to the computer via the USB cable (it is important to have iTunes installed on the computer so that it recognizes the iPhone or iPad correctly).
  2. Open the Photos program from the start menu or searching.
  3. Click on the Import button in the upper right corner of the screen. At that time Photos will be analyzed to the memory of the connected devices.
  4. Once the analysis is finished, the application will show you a new window with all the new photos and videos detected. Select the ones you want to import into the computer and click on the Continue button.
  5. In the next window choose the location where you want the photos to be stored on the computer, if you want them to be organized in folders for months or days, also choose if you want that once imported photos are deleted from the iPhone and finally click on the Import button.

After these steps, Photos will start transferring to the computer from iPhone or iPad and storing them in the folder indicated in the fifth point of the instructions.

Import Images and Videos from Windows Explorer function without iTunes

In case you do not want to use any software that organizes your images automatically and mount a gallery with them, you can use the Import images and videos from Windows Explorer option. This option is available in older versions of the operating system such as Windows XP, Vista or 7.

To transfer the photos from iPhone to the computer using this option the following steps are as follows:

  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable (as in the previous point you need to have iTunes installed to recognize the iDevice).
  2. Open the Windows Explorer and in the section This computer (or My PC in old versions), right click on the icon that identifies the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and click on Import images and videos. At that point, the computer will start scanning the iOS device’s memory for photos and videos to import.
  3. When finished the analysis a new window will ask you if you want to review and organize the new contents detected or if you prefer to import them all. In this guide, we will explain how to import everything and for this, we only have to select the option Import all the new elements now and press on Import.

Once the process is complete, you will be able to access the photos in the Pictures folder within Computer.

Transfer photo and video files manually from iPhone or iPad to Windows

The third and least recommended option is to use Windows Explorer to directly access the folders that store the photos on iOS devices and manually copy them to the computer.

You should only use this option if you know what you are doing and prefer to organize all the photo and video files manually.

  1. Connect the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to the PC with Windows via the USB cable (once again we insist that it is necessary to have iTunes installed for the computer to detect the device correctly).
  2. Open the Windows Explorer and double click on the icon that identifies the iOS device from which you want to pass the photos to the computer.
  3. Now go to the following Internal Storage / DCIM path and you will see several folders named 1XXAPPLE.
  4. When accessing each of the folders you will see the photo and video files and you only have to select the ones that you want to copy and drag them to the folder of the computer in which you want to save or select them, right click and press copy option and then paste into the desired folder.

With these three options, you can now transfer the photos and videos you make on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to a computer with any version of Windows easily.
