Ten Unwell-known Features for iOS 6 Users

The iOS 6 has been released for a few months. The iOS 6 is a great development from the iOS 5. Apart from the obvious, most noticeable new features, there are many subtle changes which can improve the usability of Apple devices. Let’s look at the top 10 features unwell-known by some users.

1. Cellular FaceTime
Wireless carriers are still catching up with this update, but iOS 6 allows users to use FaceTime over cellular networks. Moreover, not all networks permit this option for free. But I think in the future, since the cellular FaceTime option has been available now, more wireless providers will hop on board and allow users being able to use the feature.
2. Easier App Downloading
You might’ve noticed that there is no need to enter a password  frequently when downloading new apps. That’s because downloading free apps doesn’t call for a password at all. What’s more, if you are re-downloading previously installed apps you don’t need to re-enter the password.
3. “New” Apps
Newly installed apps on your device are now labeled with a blue ribbon in the corner of the icon which says “new”. Users installing lots of new apps may find this little bonus feature useful.
4. Open Apps from Store
When you’re hopping around the App Store downloading and installing new stuff you can access them much easier. If you hang around for your download to complete there is a button to jump straight to the app. There is no need to close the App Store every time when you would like to install something new.
5. iMessage Restrictions
After some digging around I found that you can restrict who sends you an iMessage. If you don’t want people you don’t know contacting you through iMessage, then restrict it so only your contacts can use it.
6. Bluetooth Accessibility
Bluetooth settings are now clearly identifiable at the top of the settings page. They are no longer under the Gen. tab which makes toggling Bluetooth on and off much easier.
7. Mail Refresh
I’m pretty sure most users of the new iOS 6 will have noticed the “pull to refresh” feature in their mail settings. If you haven’t, simply open up your mail app and pull it down.
8. Email Attachments
How annoying was it without the ability to attach photos with the old iOS? Well, now you can! Tap and hold the body of the email and then select insert photo or video.
9. Language Upgrades
When you have conversations with people in other languages the keyboard automatically remembers it. For multi-language users that’s really a very handy and time-saving feature.
10. Safari Sharing
Browsing with Safari has new sharing features. Now when you click the share button at the bottom of the browser you can share it with a couple of new features like Twitter and Facebook. You can also print and bookmark things from this menu.

There are many improvements in details compared with the previous ones. If you are careful enough, you can find more interesting and marvelous features.

What Is iOS Jailbreaking?

Jailbreaking originally means prison escaping. Nowadays it has an expanded meaning in iOS jailbreaking which is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS through the use of hardware/software exploits, such as iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and second generation Apple TV,etc. Jailbreaking allows iOS users to gain root access to the operating system, allowing them to download additional applications, extensions, and themes unavailable on the official Apple App Store. The name refers to breaking the device out of its “jail”, which is a technical term used in Unix-style systems. A jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS can still use the App Store, iTunes, and other normal functions.

Jailbreaking is necessary if the user intends to run software not authorized by Apple. Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, although Apple has announced that the practice “can violate the warranty”, jailbreaking iPhones is legal in the United States.

Advantages and disadvantages for jailbreaking
1. Expanding the feature set limited by Apple and Apple App Store.
Most jailbreaking tools automatically install Cydia, a native iOS APT client used for finding and installing software for jailbroken iOS devices. Users install these programs for purposes including personalization and customization of the interface, adding desired features and fixing annoyances, and making development work on the device easier
2. Use of handset on multiple networks
Jailbreaking also opens the possibility for using software to unofficially unlock iPhones so that they can be used with other devices. Software-based unlocks have been available since several years ago, with each tool applying to a specific iPhone model and baseband version (or multiple models and versions).
3. Censorship
Some users look for software beyond the App Store to express opposition to Apple’s censorship of content through the app approval process. For example, in early 2010, Apple banned an app submitted by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, Mark Fiore, because it “ridiculed public figures”, in violation of Section 3.3.14 of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. Apple later called Fiore and asked him to resubmit his app for approval. In late 2010, Apple banned the use of apps that allowed users to donate money to non-profit organization and charities. Apple also banned a WikiLeaks app, stating it “violated their developer guidelines”). As the list of banned apps continues to grow, some users have found jailbreaking to be a viable alternative to Apple’s censorship of content.
4. Shortcoming
Installing software published beyond the App Store has the potential to affect battery life and system stability if the software is poorly optimized or frequently uses resource-draining services (such as 3G or Wi-Fi).
