MLB.com At Bat is free to download on the Apple App Store, however, it costs $20 a year (or $2.99/month) to access the entire 2014 season. The app allows users to listen to Home and Away radio broadcasts, stream out-of-market games, plus more. The app supports all devices running iOS 7.0 or later.

Bloomberg: Apple Will Begin Mass Production of Largest iPhones Ever Next Month

Apple suppliers in China are getting ready to start production on two iPhone models in July, according to Bloomberg. As expected, the iPhone 6 will be available in two sizes when it is released later this year. Two unidentified sources have confirmed recent rumors that Apple plans to release a 4.7-inch model and 5.5-inch model of its next-generation iPhone. Both versions will be larger than the current iPhone 5s model which only features a 4-inch display.

It is still unclear if both models will be released in September, but it is likely. However, production difficulty with the larger model may cause it to be in limited supply when it is initially released, according to Bloomberg's source.

"Production of the 5.5-inch model is more complicated than the smaller version, resulting in lower production efficiency that must be overcome before manufacturing volume can be increased, said the person."

iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak Burns Two Possible iOS 8 Exploits

A new iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak released by the Chinese team PanGu wasted two possible exploits that could have possibly been used to jailbreak iOS 8, according to developer iH8sn0w. In a tweet, iH8sn0w revealed that the untethered jailbreak burned two exploits pertaining to code signing and the kernel, plus the “syslogd chown vulnerability" discussed at the Black Hat conference in August. This means at least one vulnerability used for the PanGu jailbreak would have probably been patched by Apple in iOS 8 since it was already made public.

Another famous jailbreaker, Comex expressed his support for PanGu by saying it is "not healthy" to have a monopoly on public jailbreaks.

"Though I am of course supportive of @planetbeing @pod2g etc., I’m very happy that public jailbreaks are no longer a monopoly," he tweeted.
