Upgraded to iOS 5 accidentally while enjoying an untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.3? Well everyone is not happy especially the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 users who have no longer access to untethered jailbreak on iOS 5. iPad 2 users are at a greater disadvantage as they don’t even have a tethered jailbreak solution for iPad 2 on iOS 5 yet. However with this little guide you can downgrade iOS 5.0.1/5.0 to iOS 4.3.3 if you had your blobs saved for your iPad 2 (GSM/CDMA) or iPhone 4 (GSM/CDMA) earlier.
iOS 5 and iPhone 4S have been the center of attention for quite some time now. However, just like last year this time too Apple couldn’t launch a bug free iPhone 4S to the users. Contrary to last year’s antenna gate issue, this time it was however a software error in iOS 5 that caused battery drainage in iPhone 4S. Apple has now fixed the issue with their latest iOS 5.0.1 Build 9A406 specifically for iPhone 4S which deals with the issue.
iPhone and iPad have dominated the smartphone industry for quite some time now and has become the epitome of influence for technology. There’s a new game, a utility application and its not on iPhone; very rare. Almost every app is available on iPhone, let it be ported or native, it’s there. Even Apple’s competitors have to roll out a native iPhone app along with one for their OS and Microsoft’s SkyDrive is the perfect example which has been released for iOS and Windows Phone 7 OS, providing 25GB of cloud storage.
Kinectimals started off as a console exclusive title for the Kinect; Microsoft’s entry into the motion sensor race along side PlayStation Move, the game later on spread to the Windows Phone 7 app store and let you make the cuteness mobile. But it seems Microsoft wants to share the furry creatures even more by letting them roam on the Apple Appstore for the super low price of ONLY $2.99 which is the same price on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. Considering the entertainment value and the graphics and those of us who lived through the Giga pet fad this is a great chance for us for some Nostalgia.

Siri Siri Siri! The recurring word on every magazine, blog and mouths of all tech enthusiasts since October has been gaining a lot of fame since then. Everyone is sublimed by the emerging voice recognition feature in the latest iPhone 4S. It has truly wrecked the ego of Android and Windows Phone owners. Microsoft and Google have already said that it’s nothing new and has been here for a long time and say that it’s just revamped speech recognition and nothing special.

iOS 5 has really improved things with its revamped features and most important of all iCloud which has relieved all iOS users by eliminating the need of a PC for backups but that’s not the end as Apple had yet to apply the finishing touch to iCloud with iTunes Match for further accessibility. What is really iTunes match, how does it work and how to get it? Read on to find out.
After blazing the iPhone 4S, Siri has now been finding its way onto other iDevices. Hackers are working day and night, porting Siri to other devices. They have done it successfully on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G and now the most anticipated of all, the iPhone 3GS port has been successfully completed as well. A sigh of relief for the iPhone 3GS users as they won’t be bothering upgrading to iPhone 4S only for Siri anymore. But does Siri work perfectly on iPhone 3GS? Watch the video after the break.
Playing around with your iDevices on iOS 5 but afraid of letting the device shut down or restart as you are running a tethered jailbreak or haven’t jailbroken your device yet and waiting for an untethered jailbreak? Well we’ve got some good news for you today. Pod2G, a member of chronic dev team today told that he has found a loop hole in iOS 5 that could lead him to an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, and that he has started to work hard on it.
There came the iPhone 4 back in June 2010. It was met with sheer enthusiasm as always but then began to irritate the users due to what was later found to be the antenna gate issue. The antenna gate saga continued to roar until Apple finally released a software update to deal with the issue. Recently iPhone 4S was released which too didn’t disappoint the public until a week back when users discovered the battery drain issue. Apple has yet again promised to fix the bug through another software and has already released the beta version of iOS 5.0.1 that will address the issue.
Want an iPhone 4S? Why? Majority of the people would say in order to enjoy the exclusive voice control feature, Siri. But is it mandatory to get an iPhone 4S for that? Well until yesterday, yes, you definitely required an iPhone 4S as Siri is not available on other iDevices but things have turned around now. The hacking community has successfully ported Siri to iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G with full functionality and successful connections to the Apple servers.
iPhone 4S has truly surprised its competitors, making a record pre-order of 1 million units in 24 hours and over 4 million units in a staggering 3 days only. Terrific isn’t it? Apple has started to take the game in its hands once again, outwitting its rivals with quite a margin. But is the iPhone 4S really perfect from every aspect- performance, utilities, features and most importantly durable? Well performance wise yes it is but is it really a tough guy?
I bet you, like the million others were expecting a radical design change, gigantic screen with increased resolution or even more color choice than the available black and white. Instead what we got was more of an internal makeover and a slightly update iOS. Many called it the death of Apple, the end of Apple, the funeral of Apple, heck many blamed the 4S for the death of Steve Jobs. However if Steve were alive right now, he, like all other Apple employees would be grinning over the latest press release from Apple because according to the Cupertino giant, the iPhone 4S has sold more than 4 million copies in 3 days. Now I don’t have exact figures for the Galaxy S2, but 4 million in 3 days is an impressive feat especially considering many were ready to crucify Apple over this phone. Sure go ahead blame the figures on the fact that the iPhone 4S is backed up by three times the amount of carriers than the iPhone 4 was but when you take into account that iPhone 4S is only available in a handful of countries at the moment, namely US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the UK; the 4 million in volume suddenly seems even larger. By the end of this month more than 28 countries will be carrying the phone, and by the end of this year, nearly 70. Expect 4 million to be dwarfed.
Just yesterday the iPhone 4S came out into the wild with all the great features packed in it. Many of you will be playing around with your new gadget, specially trying out Siri; the most alluring and exclusive feature of iPhone 4S, and boasting around your friends who have not upgraded to iPhone 4S and are using previous models. Well iPhone 4 users no need to worry as the good news just broke out. You would already be enjoying iOS 5 and now Siri has been ported to the iPhone 4 as well.
