Good news for anyone holding off on jailbreaking iOS 8.3. The TaiG jailbreak tool has officially been updated to version 2.1.2. The new release brings several bug fixes and support for Cydia Substrate, which has been updated for iOS 8.3. Most issues facing early adopters of the initial release have been resolved, including problems related to newer versions of iTunes. Users who have already jailbroken their devices do not have to re-jailbreak, but there are updates that must be installed to prevent future issues.
The TaiG team announced a new version of the TaiG jailbreak tool just days before the launch of iOS 8.4. Now iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users running iOS 8.1.3-8.3 can jailbreak in a few easy steps. Of course, there are usually caveats for early adopters and TaiG 2.0.0 is no different.
UPDATE: TaiG has been updated to 2.2.0. This version jailbreaks iOS 8.4, is more stable and fixes several issues. Follow the instructions below to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on Windows.
Star Trek fans now have another reason to upgrade their iOS devices to 8.3. Apple supports the Vulcan salute emoji, which means the popular symbol can be typed and viewed in iOS apps and on OS X computers. A large collection of new emoji was released with iOS 8.3, however the Vulcan salute remains an Easter egg.

After a public beta that began in mid March, iOS 8.3 was officially released on Wednesday. It offers several new features, including a new emoji keyboard, and a plethora of bug fixes and improvements. If you are thinking about upgrading, beware that users have been reporting several bugs over the past few days.
The most notable feature of iOS 8.3 is the new emoji keyboard that includes several hundred new emojis. The interface is different - you can now seamlessly scroll left and right through all of the emojis and tap category icons at the bottom to quickly skip through. You can also now change the ethnicity of the human emojis and there are many new symbols as well, including, of course, the Apple Watch.
Apple today released iOS 8.3 to the public. The update brings a few new features such as Wireless CarPlay, a new emoji picker with over 300 new characters, new language and country support for Siri, new dictation languages and more. iOS 8.3 also includes a number of bug fixes and other improvements.
iOS 8.3 doesn't have any significant Apple Watch updates or any major new features besides Wireless CarPlay. As always, users with jailbroken devices should avoid upgrading if they want to keep all their tweaks and Cydia apps installed.
