With the official release of iOS 11.3, the clock is ticking on iOS 11.2.6 signing. Normally this wouldn’t mean much to jailbreakers, who would be staying on a lower jailbroken firmware. This time however, it’s different. Many users on iOS 9 and 10 jailbreaks are waiting to see how the iOS 11 tools turn out before making the jump. So far, iOS 11.2-11.2.6 have maintained SEP and baseband compatibility with iOS 11.0-11.1.2 (the last jailbreakable firmwares), which allowed users to make the jump at any point, or wait it out a little longer….

The App Store’s total number of apps available decreased in 2017 for the first time in the history of the marketplace, according to analytics company Appfigures. iOS apps in the App Store shrank to 2.1 million over the course of 2017, after beginning the year at 2.2 million.
The decline can be attributed in part to Apple’s decision back in 2016 to remove old apps that were no longer compatible with newer iPhones and apps that didn’t comply with recent review guidelines. Apps that were not built on 64-bit architecture were removed.
To add to the graveyard of dead mobile software, Apple also removed virus-scanning apps, apps that were clones of other apps, and other low quality apps that were…
Last summer, Niantic Labs celebrated the first year of Pokémon GO with an in-person event in Chicago, with others to follow in Europe. It didn’t go well: spotty cell signals and overwhelmed servers turned the event into a disaster, and two dozen attendees launched a class action lawsuit to try and recoup travel expenses. TechCrunch is reporting that Niantic has reached a settlement, to the tune of $ 1.5 million.
The company will end up paying $ 1,575,000 for attendees’ flights, hotel rooms, car rentals, parking fees, milage, and tolls. The company will put up a website by May 25th for individuals affected by the problems, and it will notify users via e-mail.

Zen Studios just does not let up when it comes to releasing cool new licensed pinball games for their suite of digital pinball games. Last month saw the release of three new tables based around the Jurassic Park franchise in anticipation of the new Jurassic World movie releasing this June, and now Zen is ready to go back to one of their most rock-solid licenses with two brand new Star Wars tables arriving next month. These two tables are based on the most recent Star Wars film The Last Jedi, and as with all of Zen’s stuff feature some incredulous action and top-notch visuals. Here’s a trailer showing off both new The Last Jedi tables, followed by the official descriptions for both which, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, might be considered light spoilers.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Survive a First Order onslaught as the Resistance, train Rey in the ways of the Force on Ahch-To, and defend Finn from Captain Phasma, blasting away at stormtroopers as BB-8. Jump a ramp to shoot down TIE fighters, fight off Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer, and teach Rey that the Force isn’t just moving rocks!”
“Star Wars: Ahch-To Island – Luke Skywalker (reluctantly) welcomes you to his secluded hideaway. Train Rey in the ways of the Force, convince Luke to join the Resistance and help Chewbacca deal with some Porg problems. You’ll even get a taste of everyday life on the island as Luke, including reminiscing about his Rebellion days through R2-D2’s hologram projections. And when the lights go off during a multiball mode? Let’s just hope the Force is with you…”
This new Star Wars Pinball: The Last Jedi pack is set to arrive across all platforms on April 17th, which means it’ll be part of both Zen Pinball [Free] and the Star Wars Pinball [$ 1.99] apps on iOS and Android and part of Pinball FX 3 on every other platform.
