iOS 7.0.2 now available, fixes Lock screen passcode bypass

Image
Apple has just released iOS 7.0.2 as an over-the-air software update. This should fix any Lock screen bypasses in which users can bypass your passcode and gain access to your device. The update is available for all iOS 7 enabled devices. The exact wording on the update in reference to passcode bypasses is as follows: Fixes bugs that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcodeOther than that, the only other release notes deal with adding a Greek keyboard option for passcode input. If you see anything else, let us know in the comments. We'll update if we find anything else out! In the mean time, you can grab the update by tapping into Settings > General > and Software Update.

Netflix rolls out Super HD to all customers and capable devices, including Apple TV

Image
Netflix has announced that Super HD content is now being rolled out to all customers and all capable devices, which includes the current generation Apple TV. Previously the content was only available to a limited number of folks using specific Internet service providers whom had a direct connection to Netflix. All Netflix members, regardless of their Internet service provider (ISP), now have access to the highest quality HD streams available on Netflix. This means that the great TV shows and movies on Netflix will look even better on HD screens with a higher bit rate stream, Super HD, that applies less compression to the 1080p image. We initially rolled out Super HD in January only through ISPs with a direct connection to Netflix.

The Apple TV Software 6.0 update has once again been made available by Apple. To get it, go to Settings > General > Software update on your Apple TV. For those keeping track at home, Apple apparently pulled the original update after it caused installation issues for what seemed like a significant number of people.

New features remain the same - iTunes Radio (U.S. online), AirPlay your iTunes purchases to other people's Apple TVs, and some other stuff: iTunes Radio: Create your own radio stations and listen to them ad-free with iTunes Match. (Available only in the United States.) iTunes Music Store: Browse, purchase, and play music directly from the iTunes Music Store. iCloud Photos: Adds support for playing video from a shared photo stream and viewing photo streams from multiple contributors. AirPlay from iCloud: Apple TV will play content from iTunes in the Cloud instead of your AirPla…
