Tim Cook: Apple invests significant resources in augmented reality

At the conference audio for the presentation of financial results in Q2 2016, the president of Apple, Tim Cook, confirmed again one of the roads that the company would follow him in search of the next revolutionary product and we are talking of course about augmented reality, which begins to attract the attention of the world.

Questions from analysts about the popularity of the game Pokemon Go, Tim Cook said that Apple is still very interested to launch products based on augmented reality and that significant resources are invested in this direction, but of course were not disclosed specific details on plans company.

Although Tim Cook knows the game as Pokemans not Pokemon, he said however that Pokemon GO is very strong evidence of the fact that augmented reality can be extremely useful when it is used in an innovative way in an application, and Apple is looking to take advantage of such opportunities in the future.


Apple invests heavily in augmented reality

Tim Cook said that augmented reality can be “grandiose”, referring to the evolution of the platform and size that can be reached thanks to its popularity, Pokemon GO is so far the best example of how this system can make a great game, same It is true for common applications.

Augmented reality can be great. We have invested and continue to do in developing products based on it. We are confident in the benefits that augmented reality will bring us long-term and we think it is a great platform for consumers and a great commercial opportunity. Our main concern is that our products work well with those of developers, such as Pokemon, and that is why you see so many iPhones looking Pokemani. It remains to be seen whether this will be the next big platform. Whatever the case, augmented reality will be “big”.

Separately numerous patents that have already been registered for Apple in terms of augmented reality, or even the virtual one, I learned a few weeks ago that Apple has a secret laboratory with employees who develop products based on these technologies.

Tim Cook’s statements aim to increase investor confidence in Apple long term, but it remains to be seen how many people believe that Apple can bring a revolutionary product to market.

The iOS 8.3 jailbreaker is here?

If you are going to jailbreak your device, its best to know what to choose, how to do it the right way, how to enjoy all the benefits it brings. 

Are you already familiar with the tool used for iOS 8.2 devices? Then you are probably glad that the evasi0n team released the perfect jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3 devices with the same principle and simplicity as its predecesor. The new release is created for running on iOS 8 up to 8.1.3 but is only meant for Windows and Mac, while the Linux users are left out (maybe next update).

Never used a jailbreak tool before to jailbreak iphone? There is a small risk that you take during this action. Jailbreaking a device practically means you alter the official software installed on your device. By doing so, you are taking responsibility for misfortunes such as features not working properly or lacking certain functions. Fortunately, worst case scenario you’ll have to restore your device using DFU mode for cydia download, a very simple process.

So first thing you should do is make a backup of your device using iTunes or iCLoud. I prefer to use the iTunes backup system because you have an encryption option (password memorizing will be required) which speeds things up if restoring the iOS 8.4 device is needed. Having the backup encrypted saves time because the account passwords are stored and there is no need to sign into every e-mail service or app you currently have on your device. It is pretty much similar to how iCloud handles the backup system.

After taking any risk away by backing up your device, I recommend to disable your passcode, it will prevent from interfering during the jailbreak. Download the evasi0n tool, install and run it. Mac OS X users might be prompted with a warning about the app being from an untrusted developer and will have to right-click on the app’s icon and select Open.
The same as the previous version, you are required to download and run the evasi0n app on your computer while your iOS device connected. 
Once you’ve done that, click on the jailbreak icon and wait, which for me is the hardest to do, but the evasi0n tool has a lot of work placing all bundles and required files onto the iOS device. During this process you will notice the evasi0n app icon appear, but do not tap on it unless you are requested to. You will be asked to tap on the icon after your device reboots a few times, after doing so it will reboot once more and the jailbreak will be successful. 
As prof, you will have Cydia installed and the chance to start tweaking your device. If things for any reason don’t work as easy as described follow the restoring process using the backup created. In plus you have the evasi0n troubleshooting guide that you can check with at any moment.

Good luck and remember, tomorrow is here.
