It has been more than a month since the release of Apple’s new operating system iOS 7, but the developers/hackers are still working hard in their pursuit to solve the next iPhone jailbreak.
Since the iOS 6, Apple has cracked down on the jailbreakers who have been enjoying special privileges that are not provided by the original App Store as well as other special features.
Jailbreaking is the process of removing the limitations on Apple Inc. devices running the iOS Operating system through the use of software and hardware exploits – such devices include the iPhone, iPod Touch etc.
There is no word on when the jailbreak for iOS 7 will be released but the jailbreak community had hoped that it should have been released by now.
After the launch of the iPhone 5 the evad3rs released a jailbreak in just over 4 months. This means it’s possible that the world could see an iOS 7 jailbreak solution by February 2014, even though people are getting impatient.
Apple has made life harder for jailbreakers, after closing exploits used to install unauthorized third-party software in the iOS 6.1.3 update.
Jailbreaking permits root access to the iOS operating system, allowing the download of additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store.
Users are advised to be patient as Apple is increasing security with every iPhone release and operating system update. So, in that case jailbreak for iPhone 5S/6 will be a difficult road ahead for the developers.
