How to Hide Official Apple Apps on iOS 7.1 iPhone / iPad

You can now hide different iOS 7.1 apps you don’t like even if they are Apple official programs.

Previous Apple firmware releases didn’t have the option for hiding the official applications you don’t use or don’t need. It is possible to hide unwanted applications on iOS 7.1 iPhone and iPad. Such an opportunity is given for the first time by the Cupertino-based giant.

It is not cool to get lots of applications that you find useless yet present on the device, is it? The situation was odd and Apple didn’t offer a feature making all its customers keep the official applications no matter how much they really needed them.

For example, not many people use Compass app or Stocks program. Yet you couldn’t get rid of them before. It is impossible to delete such apps on iOS 7.1 gadget, but you can already hide everything you don’t want. Just take some of your time and enjoy your time without seeing them any more.

Here is how to hide unwanted Apple apps on the iPhone and iPad once you have installed iOS 7.1 update.

iOS 7.1 Update: Hide Unwanted Apps from Apple

Step 1. Create a folder on your gadget.

Step 2. Drag and place all your applications you don’t like or need into this folder.

Step 3. Now you should trick your firmware so that it lets you hide the folder with bunch of unwanted applications into another folder.

Step 4. Leave only icons on the home screen and dock. Now long click on any app and drag it quickly into another app. This will create a new folder.

Step 5. Now just drag the folder with unwanted programs into this one. It is tricky but you can manage everything and enjoy having one folder full on iOS 7.1 official Apple apps inside another folder.

Step 6. Remove all apps you need from your new folder. Leave only useless programs inside.

Step 7. Once you have all the applications on your homescreen you can pull the smaller folder out onto it and it will disappear.

Sadly the apps will still take all the space they took before as you can’t delete them.

Evasi0n iOS 7 Jailbreak Update 1.0.8 Download Links

The popular iOS 7 jailbreak Evasi0n untethered program has been updated to version 1.0.8. It still supports iOS 7 up to 7.0.6 versions on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Hackers have released the upgrade supporting iOS 7.0 build 11A466. Sadly, this program doesn’t jailbreak iOS 7.1 firmware.

iOS 7 Jailbreak Update: Evasi0n 1.0.8 Release

If you are still on pre-iOS 7.1 operating system you can jailbreak untethered and get all the possible Cydia tweaks and jailbreak apps for your smartphone or tablet device. We should mention that iOS 7.1 can be jailbroken because iH8Sn0w hacker posted a video of his iPhone 4S jailbroken and said that iPhone 4 can also be untethered however there is no public release of iOS 7.1 jailbreaking tool yet, and it’s hard to say when it can appear.

Users who iOS 7 device is already jailbroken with Evasi0n7 program don’t have to re-jailbreak their iPhone / iPad with iOS 7.1 jailbreak update because the version 1.0.8 comes with no practical changes. It can’t improve your state or bring any other benefits.

Users who haven’t jailbroken their gadget yet should download this latest upgrade and use it to perform untethered jailbreak for their Apple iDevice.

  • Evasi0n7 1.0.8 for Windows should be downloaded by PC owners
  • Get your version 1.0.8 of Evasi0n7 for Mac if you are using this computer.

We keep waiting for hackers to develop a solution for firmware 7.1 and hopefully this won’t take them till iOS 8 presentation.

Apple iPhone Sales Reach 500 Million Smartphones

It took Apple less than 7 years to sell 500+ million iOS smartphones, according to experts and analysts. It looks like the Cupertino-based tech giant has sold its 500 millionth iPhone by now. There is no info if iPhones is unlocked or locked only but definitely both. Documents from previous reports show that Apple iPhone sales reached 470+ million smartphones between 2007 when this gadget was released till the end of 2013. Analysts estimate 38+ million handsets sold for the first quarter 2014 which ends in a couple of days.

500 Millions iPhone Sold by Apple in 2014

This means that Apple 500 millionth iPhone has been surely sold. The company didn’t even mention this, as Forbes say. The milestone sale of the popular iOS handset was most likely placed around March 8 date with the company selling 500+ million mobile gadgets in less than seven years.

The figures sound incredible. It is strange that Apple just didn’t celebrate the purchase of its 500 millionth iPhone. It is known for celebrating such events as 30 “birthday” of the Mac machine and 50 billion applications download from iTunes store. It even gave a $10,000 gift card to the customer who downloaded that milestone program.

The next model we should expect is iPhone 6. Thus experts think there will be a slump in smartphone sales with iOS firmware till September.

How to Unlock iPhone 5 AT&T on / out of Contract for iOS 7.1

There is AT&T official unlock service that makes it possible to unlock AT&T iPhone 5 with iOS 7.1 at an affordable price. It is worth mentioning that the service is also available to iOS 7.1 smartphone, iOS 7.0.6 and any other firmware that supports Apple handsets. Besides, users are able to become SIM-free even if they are using iPhone 5S, 5c, 4S or 4 as some methods we’ll talk about are good for these models and operating systems as well.

You know that if you are on contract AT&T will not accept your unlock request. You can use AT&T out of contract checker to find out the status of your iPhone.

There are several unlocking methods you can choose for AT&T official unlock for iPhone 5. The first one is related with jailbreaking. iOS 7.1 can be jailbroken with Evasi0n7 program. This is the only way to jailbreak and it is completely free to use though you can do this at your own risk only. SAM unlock is a free unlock for AT&T contract and out of contract iPhone which works for users who saved activation tickets for SAM a couple of years ago. Without those tickets you will fail to unlock your handset.

Another method that also relies on jailbreak is called R-SIM 8 / 9 SIM unlock. This tool currently supports iPhone 4S, but its creators promise that iPhone 5 unlock via GEVEY is coming soon.

Unlock AT&T iPhone 5S

The best working AT&T official unlock is IMEI unlock or factory unlock. It supports all current Apple models, version of iOS and basebands. It is affordable and fast even though the new strict policy introduced last year by AT&T slowed down this process. Good companies can unlock smartphones within 24 hours though sometimes it takes up to 24 days to deliver the solution.

In order to use such a service, you need to first make sure your smartphone is locked to AT&T and activated with its network. Then you need to see that your IMEI code is not barred. Run iPhone carrier checker to see this information. If the code is clean and not blacklisted, you are eligible for painless unlock.

How to Unlock AT&T iPhone 5 iOS 7.1 Smartphone

Step 1. The service asks you to enter your IMEI number and email [see IMEI through Settings – General – About on your smartphone]. You should also pay for unlocking.

Step 2. You will get an email that confirms your new unlocking status and details on how to complete it.

Step 3. Connect iPhone 5S to iTunes and stay unlocked forever.

Once you are unlocked from AT&T you can update your iOS to version 7.0.6 and 7.1 without losing your new status.

Sapphire iPhone Screen Report: Apple’s Secret Project

There is no information from Apple about its next iPhone 6 sapphire screen. The company says nothing about this particular device getting a new display based on sapphires. The reports show us Tim Cook assuring that the new Sapphire facility to be used by Apple for the “secret project.”

Apple CEO can’t talk about the new Apple project that requires building a brand new sapphire production facility. This news comes from the WSJ. The huge smartphone and tablet maker likes to be “secret” about its upcoming projects. Most rumors we get about the future Apple iPhone, iPad, Mac and iOS releases turning out to be real.

iPhone Sapphire Screen Project: What Apple Tim Cook Talked About

Keeping its customers curious about the “awesomeness” offered by the tech giant in its new lines of smartphones and tablets gives Apple bigger profit from selling these long-awaited iDevices and OS X computers.

There should be “things” we cannot see now and some “extensions” but it is not clear whether this has anything to do with the sapphire displays for the iPhone 6 or any other gadgets. Cook says nothing more trying to sound mysterious. Experts believe that Apple sapphire plant in Arizona hints to exclusive scratch-resistant sapphire displays for the next iPhone lines.

The facility was kept in secret till everyone learned about it. Now we wonder if the mysterious Apple project is related to its new iPhones with superior-durable sapphire screen. Once again, we can only hope and wait till everything we learn about the possible future devices through rumors, reports and reviews comes to official launch.

It happens sooner than later. For example, experts believe the new iOS 7.1 release might take place this weekend or on Monday. There is no confirmation from the Cupertino company yet. These are new rumors that would soon tell us if the data is correct.

Sapphire-Covered iPhone 6 Might Be Real

The next iPhones might truly get a sapphire screen. The latest news says that GT Advanced Technologies, the company that works with Apple, is promising a “transformational year” in 2014. We hear different hints and can make predictions. However, most rumors are just rumors now.

Apple Sapphire Screens for iDevices to Be Real in 2014

As the company notes, its arrangement to supply sapphire products to the iOS device maker is “progressing well” and it results in the building of a sapphire plant in Arizona which should begin to operate in the second quarter 2014. The famous sapphire consumer, Apple, will use this impressive material for producing its next lines of the iPhone and iPad.

GT is now focusing on building the capacity for the iPhone maker. The company was even eager to lose its full-year revenue which went down from $733 to $299 million. Does it mean GT can earn more once Apple produces its sapphire smartphones and tablets?

As GT notes its revenue will be low till the latter half of 2014 when a massive increase is expected. The result should return up to $800 million with the sapphire products being released for public.

The next iPhone might be presented with the sapphire-covered screen. It could be the iPhone 6 which might be sold in September or October.
