Undo the damage: How to roll back to iOS 7.1 after installing iOS 8

Apple’s new iOS 8 software is pretty awesome — or at least, it will be when it launches to the public sometime this fall. Right now, as is always the case with early iOS beta software, iOS 8 is buggy and unpolished. The software is intended only for developers, because they need early access in order to update their apps and build new apps that utilize all of iOS 8′s new features. Of course, that won’t stop tens of thousands of non-developers from installing the iOS 8 beta on their personal iPhones, iPads and iPod touch handhelds.

iOS 8 debuted on Monday and it has already undoubtedly found its way to plenty of devices. A big chunk of them likely belong to people who register for Apple’s developers program but aren’t actually developers.

Now, even more non-developers have likely installed the iOS 8 beta because a workaround was discovered that allows users to install and activate iOS 8 without a developer account.

For the time being, iOS 8 is buggy and apps will crash constantly. For those reasons and more, we advise people not to install iOS 8 until the public version is released this fall. If you got too excited and took the leap, however, there is a way to go back to iOS 7.1.1 (or whatever the latest build might be at the time you choose to roll back) even though Apple’s developer portal states that rolling a device back from iOS 8 is not possible.

One of the world’s best Android keyboards is officially coming to iOS 8 this fall

We’ve known for a while that Fleksy, one of the best third-party Android keyboards around, is coming to the iPhone. Now, however, we have a better idea of exactly when we can expect to see it. Per 9to5Mac, Fleksy says that it’s still on track to launch its third-party keyboard app this fall after the launch of iOS 8. The app, which earlier this year broke the world record for fastest typing on a smartphone, now supports 40 different languages and should be a very popular item when it finally hits the App Store.

Fleksy isn’t the only third-party keyboard coming to iOS 8, of course, as we know that the hugely popular SwiftKey is also working on its own iPhone app. Apple last month announced that it is going to now allow users to install third-party keyboard software on iPhones and iPads for the first time starting with iOS 8, which is a feature that Android users have long enjoyed.

Here comes the iPhone 6

Many smartphone buyers are waiting for Apple’s iPhone 6 models to come out, the company’s first devices that will finally offer bigger displays. Well, the wait is almost over. Rumored to launch in September, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models will soon enter mass production, Reuters reports.

iPhone 6 concept

According to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, cited by Reuters, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will enter mass production starting next week, while the 5.5-inch model will go to mass production almost a month later, during the second week of August.

The publication is also citing a report issued on Thursday by a China state-run news service, which said that Foxconn will hire 100,000 workers to meet Apple’s iPhone demands this year, which is in line with what unconfirmed reports said earlier this month.

Pegatron, the other iPhone 6 maker in the region, has also hired more than 10,000 additional workers to manufacture the new iPhone, as Apple is expected to sell up to 70 million iPhone 6 units this year.

What Apple’s iPhone 6 actually looks like

Forget the earlier renders. Forget the leaked components. Forget the dummy mockups made of parts that were supposedly built using leaked schematics. This is what we want to see from Apple when it finally unveils the new iPhone 6 this coming September — and as it turns out, this might be the closest anyone has come to the real thing.

Graphic designer Mustafa Dağdelen recently created what may very well be the most beautiful and most accurate renders of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 that the world has ever seen. Details surrounding the handset, which will reportedly feature a brand new design and a larger 4.7-inch display, have been leaking for months, and Dağdelen used these leaks to create his masterpiece.
