iOS 7 security bug allows for Find My iPhone to be disabled

A noteworthy security bug has been discovered on iOS 7 that allows for the “Find My iPhone” feature to be disabled directly on an iPhone in just a few quick steps. The process involves going to iCloud settings, changing the password field and then changing the account description. The video above provides a step-by-step walkthrough of the flaw, which is reportedly not present in the iOS 7.1 betas.

One important thing to note is that the iPhone would have to be unlocked first before a thief or malicious person could tamper with disabling Find My iPhone or your iCloud account altogether. Moreover, anyone that is concerned about their device’s security can enable restrictions for accounts and services through the Settings app.

Will you be upgrading to iOS 7.1 when it is released?

GuestMode tweak adds a guest account to iOS

UntitledIf there’s any one feature that i’ve seen requested over and over agin since the early days of the iPhone–that Apple has yet to deliver on–it’s this one.

We pass our phones around to play games, let other people use them to call their friends, and showcase our latest iPhoneography. Shouldn’t there be a way to let our friends and family have controlled access to our device? We’ve ben able to do this with different tweaks in the past, but now we can achieve it on iOS 7 by way of a new jailbreak weak called GuestMode. (more…)

Evasi0n updated to support iOS 7.0.5

iOS7-120

The latest version of iOS, 7.0.5, was released recently to “correct network provisioning for some iPhone 5s and 5c models sold in China” (Apple). While iPhone 5s and 5c users outside of China have no need to update past 7.0.4, the update was pushed to some iPhone models sold in other Pacific countries as well as Europe. Those who accidentally updated–or live in China and therefore need the update–can now jailbreak their devices, thanks to an Evasi0n update released today. (more…)

Eclipse is system-wide night mode for iOS 7

163470One of the most actively requested iOS 7 features–which has yet to be implemented in any official form by Apple–is the addition of a system-wide “night mode” of sorts which would, hopefully, reduce the amount of blinding white used across system apps. While Apple has yet to deliver, such a feature recently materialized in the form of a jailbreak tweak, and it’s suitably called Eclipse. (more…)

If you have seen “Her”, though, you’ll probably appreciate this movie-inspired iPhone I stumbled on. It’s not just a Winterboard theme. Hit the break. (more…)
