So recently I made a couple of minor contributions to online iOS tools. Whilst the contributions are tiny, it was my first experience of actually submitting merge requests to other tools. For this reason I thought I’d share them with you.
1. ipainstaller One of the changes introduced in iOS 8 was that applications are laid out differently on the device. Essentially, the application exists as multiple containers spread out across the /private/var/mobile/ directory. »

Simply put, Touch ID is Apple’s fingerprint technology for iOS mobile devices. It allows consumers to unlock their phones and make purchases conveniently using their fingerprint(s). Furthermore, as of iOS version 8.0, Apple opened Touch ID up to developers by making APIs available for use in the SDK.
This post assumes you have performed your own risk assessment and are aware of the risks associated with biometric authentication technologies, and that you have decided that Touch ID is suitable for use in your application. »
