How to hide apps (NO JAILBREAK)

No apps no jailbreak just a simple glitch-tweaks in iOS 8 or 8.1

You need a home screen full of apps, and the apps you wish to hide is on a separate page.

Tap and hold the app you want to hide and move it to the home screen and create a folder but don’t let it go. Instead, move it back out of the folder and drop it in the dock and it will disappear entirely.

Watch the video.

The apps you’ve hidden still can be found in Spotlight search.

Just restart the phone if you wish to return the apps in their location.

Overwhelming iPhone 6/Plus demand continues to result in tighter supply for Apple versus 2013

“Consumer demand for Apple’s latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus continues to outstrip supply heading into the end of the December quarter, according to the latest research from store polls conducted by Piper Jaffray,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“The inventory situation for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is tighter than last year, when the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were Apple’s latest models. It’s believed that Apple is seeing particularly high demand for its newly redesigned iPhone models with larger displays,” Hughes reports. “Munster believes Apple likely knew its supply limits when the company issued guidance for the December quarter. As a result, he doesn’t think there is a risk to its numbers for the three-month frame, though he did say the supply constraints could limit upside potential.”

Apple supports Microsoft in data privacy fight against U.S. government

“Some of the world’s largest technology companies, including Apple Inc. and Inc., voiced support for Microsoft Corp. in a data-privacy dispute between the software maker and the U.S. government,” Kelly Gilblom and Dina Bass report for Bloomberg News. “Companies such as Hewlett-Packard Co., Verizon Communications Inc. and EBay Inc., as well as business and advocacy groups and computer science professors, plan to file 10 amicus briefs with the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals to bolster Microsoft’s position in a legal fight against the government, the Redmond, Washington-based company said today.”

Microsoft is arguing against a U.S. government request to release emails currently stored on servers outside the country. According to court filings, Microsoft was issued a search warrant relating to a drug investigation last year, compelling the company hand over customer data from an Outlook email account located in Ireland. 

 Instead of complying, Microsoft appealed to keep the data private as it resides only on a server in Dublin. As such, U.S. government agencies do not have jurisdiction and should be required to go through international channels, the company argues.

 At issue is the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), which allows federal and local law enforcement agencies to demand digital records, such as email correspondence, with appropriately served warrants. Microsoft argues Congress did not include stipulations in ECPA that would allow seizures outside the U.S.
