iOS 8 jailbreak
Software

Seeded yesterday on July 21, as was predicted earlier, iOS 8 Beta 4 is here with a few new changes and welcoming features. Apple keeps on adding new changes in the beta releases which helps in getting the developer community tuned in with the OS updates. Released last month, Apple’s iOS 8 brought in a number of new features like custom keyboards, third party app support, interactive notifications, etc. Here are the new iOS 8 beta 4 features introduced in the beta release.iOS 8 beta 4 features

iOS 8 Beta 4 features:

One of the first thing that you will notice after upgrading to the latest beta is the lack of the Bug Reporter app. Bug Reporter app was shipped in the iOS 8 to let developers easily file bug reports. Seems like the intense flood of bugs reported made folks at Apple withdraw the app! Other changes include a new Settings menu and a welcoming new controls center look. Here is a list of iOS 8 beta 4 features:

[Rumor] The peeps over at the techreport.com posted something very interesting. Apparently they have got their hands on a rumor which suggests that the Windows 8.1 Update 2 is just a few weeks away. Allegedly the update will not contain the Star Menu Update and will come later with Windows 9 ‘Threshold’.

One of Microsoft's biggest focuses at CES 2014: Windows 8.1

Start Menu Update coming with Windows 9 Threshold – Windows 8.1 Update 2, 12th August

Now Update 2 will contain a few bug fixes and some small tweaks here and there.  The full rumor actually stems from various other sources that are readily available on the Tech Report’s article. The new major update to Windows OS will be landing in a few weeks on the 12th of August 2014. However, Microsoft seems to be taking an interesting take on the entire Start Menu debacle. Apparently Windows 7 users who want the new start menu before they jump ship, will have to wait till Windows 9 Threshold. Microsoft’s move to remove the Start Menu Update from the 8.1 Update 2 might be met with retaliation from the desktop user base but in my humble opinion, and everything considered, its probably a wise move. See, Microsoft is currently suffering from Bad PR and it needs to disassociate itself from the Window 8 Fiasco completely.

We’ve said quite a lot about smartphone theft here at wccftech. Smartphone theft is one of the unfortunate drawbacks of the advent of this technology. As your phones are able to do more, they also cost more. This leads to the misguided looking to make a couple of quick bucks a golden opportunity to cash in. When you loose your smartphone, not only do you incur financial losses but also put yourself at risk. Your phone undoubtedly contains sensitive data that anyone with malicious intent can use against you. Well, a safeguard for that is available. Well, its been available since last year and is called the Android Device Manager. With Android Device Manager, you can now easily protect your data with a few simple steps. Learn how to do that right here.

Apple rolled out its latest iOS 7.1.2 update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch earlier in July. As usual, this was just an iterative update to bring in some bug fixes and improve performance. However, quite a huge number of users are complaining about an intensive case of bad battery life after the upgrade along with contacts synchronization problem. While we have already shared a guide with you on how to fix iOS 7.1.2 bad battery problem, this one will cater to the second issue. For many users, iOS 7.1.2 update not only messes up with iCloud synchronization but some users are also complaining about missing contacts. If you too are one of such users, here is how to fix iOS 7.1.2 contacts problems. This tutorial will also help you in restoring all the contacts. fix iOS 7.1.2 contacts

Fix iOS 7.1.2 contacts issues:

While many believe that these problems come from iCloud and the syncing of the contacts, it seems to be an issue with iOS setup and quite easy to solve. The problem is not anything to do with iOS 7.1.2 code and is not an actual bug. After upgrading to the latest iOS update, a small setting change occurs messing up your contacts storage.

With the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft promised to supplement it with periodic updates. In May the company also announced that it was going to separate Kinect from the popular console, leading to a $100 decrease in it’s price. This lead to sales of the Xbox One being doubled in June, when compared to May, according to Microsoft. So true to its words, the company has revealed that starting from July 21st, the next update will start rolling out for the console. This is for those with early access of course.

iOS 8 Beta 4 release date:

Earlier in the week, we saw a report mentioning that Apple could release the iOS 8 Beta 4 update on Monday, July 28th. However, it could be released a week ahead too, report had mentioned. Today comes a new report that is stating iOS 8 Beta 4 release date as July 21st, Monday. The date aligns with the regular Apple beta cycle where each new beta is seeded out in two or three weeks after the previous one.

iOS 8 Beta 4 release date report comes from BGR who have previously managed to successfully predict the date for a number of betas, while missing a few too. Albeit, we cannot take it a final world, it is highly likely that Apple will seed out the iOS 8′s 4th beta iteration on the mentioned date, that comes on Monday next week.

Here is a pretty visual from Thinky Bits who have provided some easy visualization of Apple‘s typical release cycles of beta updates. It may not be a certain science with fixed number of days in between, the chart does help in looking the average breaks between two beta updates. iOS 8 Beta 4

Android L
Software

Google’s introduction of a flatter, simpler Material Design philosophy will be integrated in a variety of tech giant’s products including Android L, Android Wear, Chrome OS, and desktop applications. In the similar attempt, we have already seen Google+, docs, and sheets receiving some transformation. This is in essence to introduce beautiful, small transformation over the coming months and not change everything overnight which could definitely irk the users. Today, a new tease is making rounds which shows off a leaked version of Android L Google Play Store looking all perfectly artistic and beautiful with some amazing artwork thrown in in the background.

Android L leaked photos

The leaked Android Google Play Store images definitely have managed to give an immersive look and feel to the OS refresh. Coming in to match the Material Design concept, Android L Google Play Store is beautifully placing the content at the front with a card layout while pushing the design elements at the back, still managing to keep the design enhanced and beautiful.

Android L Google Play Store:

Succeeding the Android 4.4 KitKat, Android L 5.0, supposedly named as Android Lollipop, is the biggest change that Google is introducing since Halo. Announced at Google I/O this year, the company focused exclusively on the Material Design throughout the different product launches and upgrades. It was apparent, hence, that Google will deliver updates from time to time to gear start a shift towards a new design era.

Caution, Debunked: The actual screen shot is fake, whether the information is too, remains to be seen. The article remains below in its unaltered state.

Some new information about Windows 9 has surfaced over at Chiploco.com. This gives a much anticipated glimpse into what the developer version and probably the final version of Windows 9 is going to look like. It would appear that Microsoft is doing its level best to appease the adamant Windows 7 fans by ditching most of its Metro UI start screen system. Although snippets and glimpses of the new windows have leaked out before, this leak gives a look at the complete aesthetic of the upcoming Windows 9.

Windows 9 Has Full Support of DirectX 12 – Ready to Welcome Home Win 7 Users

Now the build is called 6.4.9788 which means that seeing the current trend we are looking at a release date of around Q4 2014. As we already know, Microsoft has decided to completely ditch the start screen in Desktops, and has reverted to the Windows 7 boot to desktop style. We have the beloved start button back, something, once again, which we already knew. Now we recently learned that Microsoft has incorporated some of the Metro UI into its start menus, and these screenshots show in detail just that.

The Metro Apps part will be the left side of the start menu, and for the Windows 7 die hards, it can be turned off thankfully. A more streamlined version of the familiar start menu will be on the right side and it looks like most of the windows 7 aesthetics have been combined with windows 8′s icons to a promising looking effect. I myself still use Windows 7, since I love the Aero look too much to move to the obsolete looking (in my opinion) static look favored by Windows 8/8.1. However, if most of the transparency functionality is included by default then I could get used to this, and since we can turn the Metro APPs off complete, it seems like a good effort from Microsoft’s Part. One of the primary reason Microsoft has adamantly refused to leave behind the Metro UI is because of its iconic role in mobile devices, which has admittedly costed them quite a few dollars. However, this new peace offering along with DX12 support might just be enough to win the support of the Windows 7 Community. Microsoft is ending mainstream support in 2015 anyways so now would be a good time to make the shift. Although to be honest, I would have killed for the following aesthetic.
