Apple has announced macOS 10.14 and watchOS 5 during the WWDC Keynote on June 4th, the latest operating systems that are designed for Macs and Apple Watches. And now we have discovered some little tidbits that the company didn’t cover in the event...

The MacOS Mojave, which will be released later this year, will be the last version to support 32-bit apps. As early as 2007, Apple released OS X Leopard, the first Mac operating system to support 64-bit apps. According to Apple, macOS High Sierra released last year is the last macOS to support 32-bit without any compromise.


Safari now finally support for favicon in tabs, means you’ll see a website’s icon directly in its respective tab. Although some people think that this will only further confuse the tabbed interface, if you open many tabs, it can assist you to a website more easily. However, favicons are disabled by default and can be enabled via the Safari Preferences settings.

Other new macOS Mojave features including a new Lock Screen design with bigger image and font, custom accent colors that will take the result on menu button clicks, Software Update moves to System Preferences, instead of via Mac App Store, new DVD Player app that gets Touch Bar controls and a new icon. and will no longer support system-wide Facebook or Twitter logins.

As for watchOS 5, Weather app now shows UV index and wind speed data, and can now add cities to Weather and World Clock app, another neat change is that you can now to manually connect the Wi-Fi networks, while iOS 12's grouped notifications feature also applies to watchOS 5.

Apple has released the latest App Store Guidelines, and one of the updates is quite necessary: App can provide users with a free trial, the developer's discretion, and applies to both iOS and Mac App Store. This is in response to that before WWDC started, thousands of developers jointly suggested that Apple enable this feature.


For example, users can now use the fee-based software for a period of time at no cost. The developer can limit the trial period for several days, one week, or two weeks. However, following the trial period ends, the user needs to be reminded to pay for all the services.

Non-subscription apps may offer a free time-based trial period before presenting a full unlock option by setting up a Non-Consumable IAP item at Price Tier 0 that follows the naming convention: “14-day Trial.” Prior to the start of the trial, your app must clearly identify its duration, the content or services that will no longer be accessible when the trial ends, and any downstream charges the user would need to pay for full functionality. 

After this update, all apps in the App Store can use the trial period mechanism, which is obviously good news for many professional apps. Such apps are usually pretty pricey, especially in the Mac App Store. The features of the app may only be known to be inappropriate for the user after use, and the addition of the trial period will definitely promote the app to some extent.

TF International Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who formerly works for KGI, has released new research note, which claims that Apple’s pricing strategy will be "more aggressive" for the three iPhones that will be launched in September 2018...




According to Kuo, the use of more aggressive pricing strategy is due to the "concern over the negative impact of a higher price" for its 2018 iPhones", improved cost structure - yield improvements and cost reduction of the components, as well as a way to promote users' interest in Face ID.

We forecast that Apple will adopt a more aggressive price policy for the following reasons: (1) concern over the negative impact of a higher price in a mature smartphone market on selling momentum, (2) improved cost structure, which is mainly attributed to assembly yield improvements of end product & 3D sensing and cost reduction of components, and (3) increasing users of Face ID benefiting the promotion of the Apple service and ecosystem.

Furthermore. Kuo believes that the cost of 6.5-inch OLED "iPhone X Plus" will be $900-$1,000, the iPhone X 2 will be $800-$900, and the new 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be $600-$700. These iPhones will be announced and launched in September, says the reliable analyst.

According to the official Electra website, which was updated with a footnote about how the jailbreak tool would soon support iOS 11.3.1. So we urge you to update or downgrade to that version number.



The jailbreak support for iOS 11.3.1 will be obtained through the newly released tfp0 exploit discovered by security researcher Ian Beer. He is the same person responsible for the tfp0 exploit that found in iOS 11.0-11.1.2, which makes these versions jailbreak possible.

Coostar, who is developer behind Electra Jailbreak has recommended users who are not running jailbreak-able iOS 11.0-11.1.2 already to upgrade to iOS 11.3.1. Users should save their device’s SHSH blobs in a case when Apple close the signing window for iOS 11.3.1.

After the jailbreak community has been quiet lately, we finally heard the good news towards iOS 11 jailbreak. What’s your thought about it? So are you going to jailbreak your devices? Let us know in the comment below!
