Last time, I told you that iOS 8.2 would be released as early as this Monday, but the situation seems that iOS 8.2 will not be released this week. Another accurate news! According to BGR, iOS 8.2 will be released officially next Monday as Apple decided to seed one last beta to employees and carrier partners for testing. While the initial report was incorrect, this new time frame appears more plausible given Apple’s upcoming “Spring Forward” media event for the Apple Watch on March 9. Apple also promised that a fix would be prepared by next week for the recently discovered “FREAK” security vulnerability affecting devices such as the iPhone, iPad and Mac. The security flaw was disclosed to Apple well in advance of the public. According to BGR founder and editor Jonathan Geller, Apple’s decided to release one more Gold Master (GM) version crying a build number of 12D508 to employees and testers ahead of an expected launch this coming Monday. Plus, this time, Apple has made some improvements to Apple’s stock Health app. Of course, some bugs are fixed in the upcoming iOS 8.2. Health app improvement Adds the ability to select the unit of measurement for body temperature, weight, height, distance, and blood glucose Improves stability when dealing with large amounts of data Includes the ability to add and visualise workout sessions from 3rd-party apps Addresses an issue that may have prevented users from adding a photo in Medical ID Fixes units for vitamins and minerals Fixes an issue where Health data wouldn’t refresh after changes data source order Fixes an issue where some graphics showed no data values Adds a privacy setting that enables turning off tracking of steps, distance, and flights climbed Bugs fixed in iOS 8.2 Fixes an issue in Maps that prevented navigating to some favorite locations Addresses an issue where the last word in a quick reply message wasn’t autocorrected Fixes an issue where duplicate iTunes purchased content could prevent iCloud restore from completing Resolves an issue where some music or playlists didn’t sync from iTunes to the Music app Fixes an issue where deleted audiobooks sometimes remained on the device Resolves an issue that could prevent call audio from routing to car speakers while using Siri Eyes Free Fixes a Bluetooth calling issue where no audio is heard until the call is answered Fixes a timezone issue where Calendar events appear in GMT Addresses an issue that caused certain events in a custom reoccurring meeting to drop from Exchange calendar Fixes an certificate error that prevented configuring an Exchange account behind a third-party gateway Fixes an issue that could cause an organizer’s Exchange meeting notes to be overwritten Resolves an issue that prevented some Calendar events from automatically showing as “busy” after accepting an invite. The update also promises greater stability for Mail, Music, the Flyover feature in Maps, VoiceOver reliability, and connectivity with Made for iPhone Hearing Aids.
According to a recent rumor that the next generation iPhone 6S is to ship with 2 GB RAM, including the Apple SIM. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which was released in September last year, have only been available for a few months. News about the next generation iPhone has been everywhere. I cannot make sure that whether the next generation iPhone will be named as iPhone 6S, for there is still no official news. According to the news, Apple’s upcoming “S” refresh to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus apparently includes two gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), a feature long expected by Apple fans who have been eyeing top end Android handsets with 3GB of RAM with envy. More RAM = better multitasking = longer battery life. Furthermore, the phone ship with the Apple SIM which debuted alongside the iPad Air 2, as reported by AppleInsider quoting “a person familiar with Apple’s future product plans” who in the past has provided “reliable info.” Speaking of RAM, by the time the iPhone 6s gets announced and released (presumably this fall), it will have been three years since Apple gave iPhones 1 GB of RAM with the iPhone 5’s 2012 debut. A RAM upgrade for the upcoming iPhones is almost certainly in tow. Read related articles: Rumor: iPhone 6S has 2 GB RAM and Apple SIM iPhone 6S–What we expect

In my previous article, I have introduced how to downgrade your iPhone 5S from iOS 8.1.1 to iOS 8.1. But now, if you still want to downgrade from iOS 8.1.1 to iOS 8.1, you need to take it easy, for Apple has closed iOS 8.1 signing window, eliminating chance to downgrade. According to 9to5 Mac, Apple has closed the signing window for iOS 8.1 on compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, thereby eliminating the ability for users to downgrade to the software version. iOS 8.1.1, seeded as an over the air update a few weeks ago, is now the earliest software version that devices can be restored to. If you are currently using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that is running iOS 8.1, you should remember that there is no chance for you to go back to that software version if you upgrade at this point. The good news for jailbroken users is that an iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak has already been released for Windows, with an OS X tool on the horizon.
In iFonebox forum, I once wrote a post about the iPhone 6 Plus reboot problem. The post showed us a test made by netizens and when they installed 1211 apps in iPhone 6 Plus, 128 GB, iPhone 6 Plus will reboot frequently until they deleted the apps to 669, this problem would not happen. Why? I don’t know. However, recently, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 have been put to test and let’s check the result. The issue seems to be that Apple isn’t using the most stable internal storage memory, but the intricately dense triple level cell (TLC) NANDflash in the 128 GB version instead of the MLC(Multi level Cell). Is there a real difference between TLC and MLC flash in the iPhone 6 Plus and will it make major differences to performance? It is said that TLC flash can store much more information than single level cell (SLC) or a multi level cell (MLC) solid state flash, but is more volatile, and more prone to errors. It is more affordable, though, and that might be the reason Apple went with it for its most memorable version of the 6 Plus, instead of MLC, like on most other iDevices. In the test, the result shows that not only iPhone 6 Plus has been used TLC, some iPhone 6 with 64 GB has also used TLC flash. But iPhone 6 with 16 GB all are used MLC flash. It is hard for you to trace whether your iPhone 6 is TLC flash or MLC flash. It is said that if your iPhone 6 is jail broken, you can install a plugein named OpenSSH in Cydia. Otherwise, you have to disassemble your iPhone to check. In that way, you will lose the chance for the warranty. So after read this news, what do you think of the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6?
