Siri has been updated in iOS 8 to be always listening...at least while plugged in. Just shout out "hey Siri" and Siri will respond without touching the device. Siri can also now listen to music being played and identify the artist and song name with Shazam-like functionality. Just ask Siri to listen and she will help.
See the video below showing this functionality.
If there is a passcode, Siri can be disabled and this access will not function.
iOS 8 was revealed at WWDC this week, there are many new features now available for your Apple device. Many of these new improvements have been 'borrowed' from the jailbreak community and/or from Android. Check out the video below for a quick overview of iOS 8 on the iPad.
Installing the iOS 8 beta is pretty simple, first you need to figure out which iPad model you have for installation. After this you will need to download the beta version of iOS 8 here at the bottom. Be sure to download the correct version for your device.
Sentry has released Auxo 2 for the iPhone, version 1.1 is expected very soon to introduce support for your jailbroken iPad Air. If you previously purchased the original Auxo (or iPad version), you can get the stylish Auxo 2 for a slight discount at only $1.99. For those new to the Auxo jailbreak tweak, the price is $3.99 in Cydia.
Here is a video from iDownloadblog showcasing all that Auxo 2 offers for your jailbroken device.
I am planning to wait until version 1.1 with iPad integration is released to upgrade.
