Apple released a new update for Safari on Tuesday which is version 7.0.3 and includes bug and security fixes. The beta version has been tested in the past few weeks by developers.
iOS-powered devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad are hugely popular around the world, with Apple’s mobile OS considered to be one of the most complete offerings in the mobile world. Like all major operating systems that are updated periodically, iOS has seen organic growth over its life and has benefitted from multiple feature additions as well as numerous bug fixes.
The enthusiastic community which surrounds the jailbreaking scene is thriving, there can be no doubt about that fact. Even though the cat and mouse game with Apple is becoming more and more difficult with every iOS release, the evidence which points to the popularity of jailbreaking is there for all to see.

As you would know, Apple released an iPad simulator as part of the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK in January of this year.
However, as developers working with the simulator might have realized, there is no direct way to access Safari from iPad’s simulator, instead it can be accessed in a roundabout way.
Apple Engineers are apparently still working on few issues with iPad Safari, which is the reason it is not directly available even in the latest beta of iPhone OS 3.2 SDK.
However, some folks have figured out how to access it from iPad’s simulator. Here are some of the features, which are similar to the ones available on iPhone or iPod Touch’s Safari browser:
* Ability to add bookmarks to the home screen that will link to specific websites.
* Bookmarks menu option that provides a drop-down of all bookmarked web pages.
* Option to toggle the default search engine between Google and Yahoo.
* List of up to 10 keyword suggestions displayed while typing on the search box.
* Automatic form fill option to remember username and passwords.
As expected, Adobe Flash is not supported and websites containing Flash return blank spaces. The video gives a nice overview of what you can expect on iPad’s Safari:
