Apple removes iPhone 4s and iPhone 5c from sale in India as iPhone 5se launch looms

In India, Apple has stopped selling the iPhone 4s, which debuted in the fall of 2011, as well as the unapologetically plastic iPhone 5c, The Economic Times reported Tuesday. In withdrawing its most affordable handsets from the 1.25 billion people country—the world’s third market for smartphones and the fastest-growing smartphone market in the world—Apple is looking […]

Apple on the hook for $5+ million over hindered performance of older iPhones with iOS 9

iOS 9 teaser iPhone iPad image 001

Apple is under fire over planned obsolescence concerning the iOS 9 software update, with a new class-action lawsuit accusing the company of intentionally slowing older iPhone models with the update, AppleInsider reported Wednesday.

Filed with a New York district court on Tuesday, the lawsuit also accuses Apple of deceptive trade practices and false advertising which assured customers that iOS 9 would run fine on older handsets dating back to four-year-old iPhone 4s models without stating that the upgrade would cripple legacy handsets severely….

Fallout 4’s Real Pip-Boy Won’t Work With Larger Phones

The much sought-after Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition Pip-Boy will work with regular-sized smart phones, but those with larger models are out of luck.

As detailed in a recent Bethesda Blog entry, the foam inserts included with the Pip-Boy casing will fit the iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy 5, and Samsung Galaxy 4. A customizable foam insert will also be included for those who own another model or brand with a similar build.

However, any phones larger than those listed – including the iPhone 6+ – won’t fit inside the casing.

“As we wanted to stay faithful to the dimensions of the in-game model, any smartphones larger than the models listed will not fit inside the wearable device” the post states.  “For these larger devices, our Pip-Boy companion app will still be available.”

Apple Stores to drop AT&T iPhone subsidy, increase trade-in value of older iPhones

Tim Cook (iPhone 6 launch, Palo Alto Apple Store)

Both online and brick-and-mortar Apple Stores around the country are about to drop subsidies for iPhone models sold through carrier AT&T. Moreover, Apple is said to increase trade-in price value of older iPhone models just a little bit, according to a pair of reports Monday (here and here) by 9to5Mac.

Beginning this month, trade-in values for iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s models will increase by $15, or $25 in the case of used iPhone 5s devices…. Read the rest of this post here

Auxo for iOS 5.1.x now available on Cydia

Auxo5x

Auxo — the popular jailbreak tweak we covered in depth last week — is now available on Cydia with iOS 5.1 support in tow. As you may recall, the initial version only supported iOS 6 out of the gate, and many users, pined for iOS 5.1 support, since a great majority of jailbreakers have chosen to remain on 5.1 firmware for obvious reasons.

Thanks to developer, Kyle Howells, who assisted with porting the tweak, the team behind Auxo was able to meet its turnaround time for adding support for the older iOS firmware. Did the team have to make any sacrifices in order to bring such an awesome tweak to iOS 5.1? It sure doesn’t look like it to me. Check inside as we go hands on with Auxo for iOS 5.1 on video…

As you can see from our video, Auxo for iOS 5.1 works exactly like it does on iOS 6.x. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a difference between the two. If anything, the new version of Auxo with 5.1 support works even better, because it adds bug fixes, performance upgrades, and new languages.

The video that I included with this post is designed to show you how the tweak works on the lesser firmware, and it’s not an in-depth dive into all of its features. If you haven’t read our original synoposis of Auxo, or you’re still wondering what all of the fuss is about, then I urge you to check out our original post about the tweak. There, I broke down every aspect of Auxo in full detail, and also included a more in-depth video that what accompanies this post.

While most iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4G users could have easily upgraded to iOS 6 in order to run Auxo, jailbroken iPhone 4S owners had no such luxury. Now, with the introduction of Auxo 1.1, users of the jailbroken iPhone 4S can enjoy the improved app switching experience on much faster hardware. Sadly, I lost my jailbreak for the iPhone 4S, so I am patiently waiting for an iOS 6 jailbreak for that device, and obviously, I’m looking forward to running Auxo on my iPhone 5 as well.

So what’s next for Auxo? Well, the most logical next step for the team is to implement iPad support. Auxo is the type of tweak that would translate well on the iPad’s larger screen, and the team has assured me that they are working diligently to bring the experience to Apple tablets.

I won’t say I was skeptical, but I was a tad doubtful whether Kyle Howells could bring Auxo to iOS 5 in an accurate fashion. I guess I shouldn’t have been skeptical at all, after all, this is the same guy who brought us great tweaks like MountainCenter, along the marvelous SwipeSelection and Emblem, which were both featured as one of our top tweaks of 2012. Given his track record, I should have realized that if anyone could have pulled this off during the short time allocated for its completion, it would have been Howells.

Well over 300,000 views later, it’s easy to see that there is a massive interest in Auxo. That interest is sure to increase, as folks running older firmware can now take advantage of the improved app switching that made Auxo our 2012 tweak of the year.

Have you tried Auxo on your iOS 5.1 device yet? Is anyone running Auxo on an iPhone 4S? If so, let me know what your experience was like in the comment section below.

Update: as many have pointed out, this release is for iOS 5.1.x only, not necessarily 5.x. For instance, if you’re running 5.0.1, it won’t currently work. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
