The wait is over for Apple TV owners looking forward to a new remote control option. The official Apple TV Remote app has been released by Apple after being revealed earlier this year. Once installed, any compatible iOS device will function as a remote control for second, third and fourth-generation Apple TV set-top boxes. Not only does the app simplify text entry with a keyboard for search fields, it offers full control of media playback.
The mobile gaming hit Pokémon GO received an update to version 1.1.0 over the weekend, leading many players to believe their progress has been lost. According to game developer Niantic, this is a login issue that surfaced due to an update to the Google Account login system. Rest assured, your Pokémon GO account still exists and can easily be recovered.
Sad news today for owners of older iOS devices, including the iPhone 5 and fourth-generation iPad. The iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak released by Team Pangu will be limited to 64-bit devices. This means that anyone looking to jailbreak 32-bit iOS devices is out of luck. Pangu made the news official on Reddit, explaining that there is no future plan for 32-bit support.
The well reviewed PS Vita game Severed has made its way to the Apple App Store. Severed follows Sasha -- a distraught, one-armed warrior who is about to embark on a journey through a surreal non-linear world. The developer describes Severed as a light RPG adventure game with touch-based combat mechanics.
In the game, players must progress through branching routes while battling enemies, avoiding hazards and solving puzzles. The most interesting part of the game is the ability to stun opponents so you can sever their body parts and wear them to gain new abilities. Players can also utilize Totems and upgrade their armour by collecting the remains of defeated bosses.
Pangu took the world by storm this week, releasing the first iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool. While the software is still in its early stages, jailbreak developers have wasted no time taking advantage of this news. Paid tweaks are temporarily suspended until the jailbreak is deemed stable enough to fully open the Cydia app store. Free jailbreak packages can still be downloaded and installed at will.
