Yalu jailbreak iOS 10.2 is definitely great news for the folks who love using Cydia tweaks to customize their iPhone. But, it isn’t yet completely ready. Hence, you should be a bit cautious about installing it. I would recommend you to try this jailbreak on your secondary iOS device just for testing purpose and wait for the final version of the jailbreak to arrive.

How to Sort Instagram Photos by Date on iPhone and iPad

I’m really fond of Instagram. The social networking app, with plenty of features to let you not just share your favorite photos or videos but also edit them as per your liking, has become a hot recipe.

However, the social networking app is not perfect and can’t fit into everyone’s taste. As an active user, I wish to add a new feature that can allow me to sort photos easily.
