Evad3rs member, pod3g, tweeted some statistics regarding the tool’s popularity amongst iOS users. According to him there are over 23 million iOS devices that has been jailbroken with Evasi0n, with over 14 million of those devices being devices that run iOS 6 or higher. It’s quite a jump from the 7 million iOS 6 users within the first four days of the jailbreak’s availability and Apple’s next iOS 6 update, iOS 6.1.3, is said to bring a fix that will render the tool useless. Knowing jailbreakers though, an update should arrive shortly thereafter.

Recent rumours suggest that Apple may be preparing an update to fix recent vulnerabilities in iOS 6.1.1′s security.
The update is rumoured to come early next week, before February 21, to fix bugs with connecting to Microsoft’s Exchange servers as well as fix the bugs in users’ lockscreens that would allow anyone to access their contacts and photos. The update is rumoured to already be in its testing phase and has been sent to carriers to ensure it is rolled out soon. The update is expected to work on all the recent iOS 6 supported devices including the Apple iPad, Apple iPod Touch and the Apple iPhone devices.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen – that time of the year where we all are super excited, some for being Apple fans and the others out of curiosity – the alleged iPhone 5 or 2012 iPhone or the 6th generation iPhone launch is only ten, yes TEN days away! Scheduled to be held on September 12 2012, we’ll keep you posted through these ten days and on the d-day itself!
As part of our countdown to the next iPhone – here is a rumor roundup of what we seriously do expect to be part of the iPhone 5 – you can also read our exclusive iPhone 5 detailed report which we published a while back!
Smaller SIM card
Alleged new iPhone 5 photos show a slightly smaller home button and a narrower SIM card tray than in the iPhone 4/4S. The possibility of a nano-SIM has surfaced previously. If true, it could make more space for a larger battery – on doing a little research locally I discovered that carriers were aware of nano-SIM and they did tell me that the time taken for a nano-SIM to be delivered after a request initially will be two to three weeks!
Back to the taller screen
One of the most popular new iPhone 5 rumors surfaced again when CNet reported that Apple has been testing a taller display for its next handset. 9to5Mac used iOS development tools to simulate a 640×1,136-pixel-resolution screen, which gave the phone five rows of icons stacked vertically above the dock, instead of the four displayed with iOS 5. Also, our detailed report confirms this – so a taller screen with same width – interesting move there, Appple!
We’ve already told you about this possibility – now it’s more or less confirmed that Apple will shrink the iPhone’s 30-pin connector to 9 pins. This will open a wide array for accessories and new accessories, including some sort of convertors which bridge the gap of reverse compatibility between iPhone 5 and the previous generation of iPhones – watch out Fommy.com for all the latest accessories for the iPhone 5 – surely they will hit our stores fastest and at best prices, we got you covered there!
Lots of the chatter right now is more about what may not be in the next iPhone than what will be in it. According to some chatter there will be no pre-installed YouTube app in the next version of the operating system, according to a report at 9to5Mac, independent app for the win here, why would Apple want to embed their arch rivals app? Good move Apple!

If like me you too were wondering where did Apple get all the required cartographic data to put together a brilliant turn-by-turn navigation application, well – we have an answer – TomTom. The mapping giant TomTom issued a statement hours after WWDC saying that they “have signed a global agreement with Apple for maps and related information”. This is certainly a very interesting move as this completely cuts of Google’s involvement on the iOS 6 platform (Yes, Apple could have chose Google as the data provider for the iOS 6 maps – but, that would be super counter productive!).
Though TomTom’s coverage is not half as extensive as that of Google’s but with Apple backing TomTom – things can only get better for them. Interesting map wars ahead!
