The bombshell news relating to Apple’s plan to release a new version of OS X called Mountain Lion will no doubt come as a huge shock to many, and you will all be forgiven for still being in a daze considering it was only July of last year that the current OS X Lion was released.
The ninth release of Mac OS X, Mountain Lion, is set to land in the Summer and brings functionality and feature enhancements inspired by Apple’s popular tablet device, the iPad. Mountain Lion is all geared up to bring Notes, Reminders, Game Center, Notification and iMessages to the Mac which signals the beginning of a fusion between OS X and iOS.
Just 7 months after releasing OS X 10.7 Lion, Apple has formally announced OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It’s a big step ahead in the “iOS-ification” of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system and we’ve got all the details you need after the jump!
Ever since Apple introduced an API in iOS to detect jailbroken iOS devices, developers have been using it to prevent users who have jailbroken their iOS devices from using their apps. They’re typically greeted with the following error message: “Jailbreak detected. App cannot run on a jailbroken device” when they launch such apps.
We’ve seen the jailbreak detection in apps such as Bloomberg Anywhere, Cablevision, Cisco M-Learning, DirecTV for iPad, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Time Warner Cable, Verizon On Demand /FlexView etc.
Developers have cracked Siri’s security protocols which will make it possible to use the assistant on any device including the iPad or even Android smartphones, according to Applidium.
Here’s some of what they discovered:
The iPhone 4S really sends raw audio data. It’s compressed using the Speex audio codec, which makes sense as it’s a codec specifically tailored for VoIP. The iPhone 4S sends identifiers everywhere. So if you want to use Siri on another device, you still need the identifier of at least one iPhone 4S. Of course we’re not publishing ours, but it’s very easy to retrieve one using the tools we’ve written. Of course Apple could blacklist an identifier, but as long as you’re keeping it for personal use, that should be alright!
