If you’re interested in downgrading your iOS device from iOS 8 back to iOS 7.1.2, you can still do so for a limited time. Obviously, your device must be capable of running iOS 7.1.2 in the first place, so devices like the newly released iPhone 6 and its larger brethren, the 6 Plus, do not qualify.
Downgrades are only possible when Apple is signing the firmware that you wish to downgrade to. Traditionally, Apple is fairly fast with its cutoff point, as it usually stops signing firmware that’s not the current release, in short order.
As of this post, Apple is still signing iOS 7.1.2, so if you wish to downgrade, you better act fast. Inside, we’ll walk you through downgrading to iOS 7.1.2 on an iPhone 5s, but the same rules apply to any device that is currently running iOS 8, but is capable of running iOS 7.1.2....

Back in June, Apple announced PhotoKit, a new way to edit photos using third-party apps and filters – all from the stock Photos app. Many legacy photography apps have received updates enabling these features, making accessible a great deal of functionality, all in one app. iOS users can now apply watermarks, filters, effects, and more directly in Photos, a feature iPhoneographers are sure to love.
We’ve brought together a list of the photo apps that have been updated to support Apple’s PhotoKit and can be downloaded now. ... Read the rest of this post here
Zephyr was one of the most popular multitasking tweak for iOS 6, however it hasn’t been updated yet for iOS 7. If you miss the tweak, you should definitely check out an alternative to it known as Tage.
Developed by Ma Jun, Tage features functionality similar to Zephyr and changes the way you switch between opened apps. The tweak is made up of five major parts. You can swipe the left or right side of the screen to switch between active apps. Additionally, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to either close the app or launch the App Switcher. Finally, swiping left or right from the top edge of the screen allows you to lock your device.... Read the rest of this post here

Normally, when you connect your headphone to your iOS device, it will start to output the audio from the headphone rather than the speaker and there’s no way you can switch to the latter. AudioOut is a brand new jailbreak tweak that aims to save your day by fixing this issue.
Developed by vibez, AudioOut allows you to listen to a song from the device’s external speaker even when the headphone is plugged in. Not only this, but the tweak also lets you control the audio from the headphone’s controls such as its volume. This means that you can listen to a song from the device’s external speaker and at the same time control the sound with the headphone’s remote control.... Read the rest of this post here
My brother is an Android user and I am an iOS 8 user. So of course he is always showing me things that he can customize on his smartphone that I can’t. One time, he showed me how he could swipe his finger across his keyboard to type words. “Big deal,” I said. “Jealous,” I thought.
Now that SwiftKey Keyboard is available as a default keyboard for iOS 8, I was quick to download it to see just how cool the feature really is. SwiftKey is mainly a predictive keyboard that learns your writing style and gives you suggestions for what you might want to say next. But, it also has that cool “Flow” swiping feature so you can type without tapping.... Read the rest of this post here
Following Wednesday’s public release of iOS 8 and today’s launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Apple Support Forums are already buzzing with disgruntled users who are venting their frustration with iOS 8 presumably removing some of their photos, a point driven home by the company’s inexplicable removal of the Camera Roll album in iOS 8.
Indeed, it looks like Apple has introduced a major customer pain point by not elaborating whether the missing Camera Roll has anything to do with iOS 8′s newly gained ability to access large photo libraries in iCloud within the Photos app.
