iOS 8.3 Blocks iFunBox; They Partially Fix Issues with Update v2.95
While the latest update iOS 8.3 brought on some interesting changes to the way your iPhone and other Apple devices work, it also made it harder for file manager apps that worked around the policies of Apple to give you access on platforms.
As a result apps like iFunBox and iExplorer have lost their access to the apps. According to a report, iFunBox originally let the users know that all access to the sandbox directory of apps had been revoked by iOS:
Apple blocked access of the entire sandbox directory of every installed app since iOS 8.3. Previously only writing was blocked in executable directory. Now we totally lost the control of apps on our own devices. We are investigating the situation.
Now, in order to completely restore the access to all these apps a new jailbreak will be required which isn’t here yet.
However, all is not lost for Apple users who relied on such applications. For instance, iFunBox just got a new update which, according to their official Facebook, restores the sandbox access partially:
iFunbox v2.95 is just released [ http://i-funbox.com ]. Partially fixed the sandbox access restriction applied by the new iOS 8.3. All apps with “iTunes File Sharing” enabled (e.g. iFileExpress, or VLC player) can be opened for sandbox browsing just like before. For the rest, jailbreak is required to enable the sandbox access.
They have also stated that apart from m4r you will be able to import all types of music files.
If you wanted to get the same level of access on iOS 8.3 you will have to wait a little while, until a jailbreak is released.
