It’s been more than 2 years now since Apple released the 6th gen iPod Touch. Fans are still wondering if Apple would release a “new” or would update the iPod Touch for 2018.

What Is Cydia?

For those not (yet) familiar with jailbreaking, Cydia is similar to the Official AppStore but it is for jailbroken devices. It is a mobile app package manager for jailbroken iDevices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Cydia gathers a slew of repositories that host tons of apps, mods, themes and tweaks to customize your device and make them more personal. Remember, these 3rd party apps, mod, themes and tweaks are NOT available from Apple’s AppStore. You can only get them by installing Cydia on your iPod Touch.

Cydia was created by Jay Freeman (also known as “Saurik“) and was released in February, 2008. Since then, it has become the most popular AppStore alternative in the jailbreaking world.

Why Should You Install Cydia On Your iPod Touch?

Apple’s iOS is a very restrictive (read: close) environment. This is the main reason behind the jailbreaking community. Jailbreaking allows iDevice users to break free of Apple’s confining platform and completely “own” their devices.

The most important reason for jailbreaking your iPod Touch is Cydia. As mentioned above, AppStore alternative Cydia has everything an iPod Touch user wants to improve and customize the device. You don’t have to search for Cydia iPod download as this post will show you how to install Cydia on your iPod Touch easily.

Cydia Ipod Download : How To Install Cydia On Your iPod Touch

This guide will show you how to jailbreak your 6th generation iPod Touch and install the Cydia app with the jailbreak. Since Cydia is not yet fully compatible with iOS 11 and above, we will restrict the jailbreak to Cydia compatible iOS versions (iOS 10.3 to iOS 10.3.3).

We will also be using the latest iPod Touch (6th Generation) for this procedure and the G0blin Jailbreak Tool. The G0blin Jailbreak Tool is a semi-untethered jailbreak compatible with 64-bit iDevices running iOS 10.3 to iOS 10.3.3. Canadian iOS developer, Sticktron, developed the G0blin jailbreak for developers and xPreeks , another iOS jailbreak developer, added Cydia & compiled the IPA for the masses to enjoy.

How To Backup iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch The Easy Way

How To Backup iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch The Easy Way – If you own an Apple device, be it an iPhone, and iPad or an iPod Touch, you should always create a backup to keep all your precious data safe.

Why Create A Backup?

You’ll never know when things will go terribly wrong, especially with these high-tech gadgets! This may be the worst case scenario but we need to make sure that all our data are safe even if our iDevices are stolen or we lose them.

Also, Apple releases several updates to its mobile operating system (iOS) and its a good practice to backup your device before updating to the latest iOS release.

Of course, upgrading to a new iDevice is inevitable and having a backup will make transfering all your data to the new gadget that much easier.

These are just some of the reasons why it is important to setup a backup for your device after getting them out of the box. This way you can be sure you won’t lose any of your app data, contacts, device settings, health data, iMessages and texts messages. Enabling iCloud Photo Library on your iDevice (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) and Mac will allow you to backup not only photos but videos as well.

Ways To Create Your Backup

There are two “official” ways to backup any iDevice – using iCloud and iTunes. You can also use both if you really want to be safe. The main difference between the two is where your backup data are store. When you use iCloud to backup, your data is store in a “cloud” (iCloud) storage. Using iTunes to backup your iDevice store the data locally on your PC or Mac.

You can access your backup from anywhere and anytime as long as there is internet connection if you used iCloud for backup. Creating your backup with iTunes, you can access your data using only the computer used to create the backup.

There are also third-party software which you can use to backup your iDevice if you so desire. Some of the software offer functionalities which iTunes lack. The main advantage of iTunes against these other alternatives is that iTunes is free.

For this article, I am going to show you how to backup your iDevices the quick and easy way.

How To Backup iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch The Easy Way
