Of course, the whole purpose between jailbreaking a portable device is so you can stay mobile (not tethered to your desktop PC all day). The security update also patched an integer overflow-related bug, an incomplete code signing issue.

Apple has just released a software update for iOS phones and tablets that fixes a serious vulnerability in the operating system in regards to the way PDF files handled fonts. The vulnerability included the potential of a malicious PDF file to sneak malware into the device.

Your iPhone Can Be A Universal Infrared Remote Now!

And now you can use your iPhone 4, 3GS or 3G as a universal infrared remote for just about all the infrared controlled devices, a company called Mashed Pixel made that feasible. The company has pioneered a new casing called “Surc”, which the company will be displaying in CES 2011 next year.

Apple’s Touchscreen Patent Approved!

Apple has recently been granted a patent related to its capacitive touchscreen which was first introduced to the original iPhone over three years ago. The patent secures Apple’s gestures and gives the computer manufacturer full rights on its display over the iPhone, iPad, and iPod product line.

This may make other manufacturers like Samsung a bit nervous if their phone designs are anywhere near Apple’s. Lawsuits are very common in the tech industry, and pointing fingers becomes a game when it comes to new products.
