Pangu8 will work with all the iOS 8 – 8.1 Compatible devices:

@TeamPangu: Cydia + other plugins can’t be used until they are updated to work with iOS8. When they’re updated we integrate them in Pangu Jailbreak 1.0

pangu2-ios-8-jailbreak

About Cydia update: Saurik is aware of this release and is now working on Cydia and Substrate compatibility for iOS 8. From Reddit:

So, windknown has contacted me, about a half hour ago, via e-mail. He has told me one of the issues that is keeping Substrate from working on the device, which will probably require me to build a little binary patch for dyld as part of the Substrate installation sequence. This was the worst possible day for me, as I’m traveling back to Santa Barbara today (I’m currently in Texas, having come here to give a talk at The Big Android BBQ), which means this will take me a little longer than I’d like, but clearly getting Cydia and Substrate working on iOS 8 is my highest priority. I thankfully think that I actually can start working a little on one of the Substrate issues using an iOS 7 “model” based on the information provided by windknown, which means I’ll lose less time to not having all of my devices with me. (I currently have no clue why Cydia itself is not functioning, but will find out later today when I can see it myself.)

Once its confirmed that the jailbreak is safe and Cydia and Mobile Substrate are working we will posted detailed instructions on how to jailbreak your device.

iPad-Air-2-Fingerprint-Sensor

The iPad Air 2 does finally hit the market with the Apple’s Fingerprint sensor, while it’s not as useful on the iPad or on the iPhone either. Neccessity upgrade in many opinion, though. The Touch ID sensor can be used particulary for making purchases online via Apple Play. Payment system, online!

Since it’s foremost launches, the camera-esque has never really been all that good, and while Apple would spend more time focusing on the snapper of its iPhone line-up. Finally, the iPad is now being given some attention in this regard.

Introduced burst mode into the photography mix to appease those who are into action shots. Apple has also integrated So-Mo ability, which first made its cut with the iPhone 5s. Front-facing camera has also been improved and the FaceTime HD shooter ensuresd that your selfies and video calls come out the best way, whenever, wherever.
