iOS 7 Web Traffic Increases and Untethered Jailbreak Details – With Apple scheduled to unveil iOS 7 to the public next month during the company’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, more commonly referred to as WWDC, the anticipation amongst Apple and jailbreak fanatics couldn’t be higher. As the majority of readers here on Evasion Jailbreak are already aware, in one swift move on March 19th, Apple effectively patched the iOS 6 through 6.1.2 evasi0n UnTethered jailbreak with the release of iOS 6.1.3. Since the firmware’s release, Apple has also issued iOS 6.1.4 exclusively to iPhone 5 owners, which is also currently unable to be jailbroken. Over the past weeks, we’ve written a number of articles detailing why the evad3rs aren’t developing an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, so if you missed them, we recommend taking a look at our jailbreak 6.1.3 archive prior to finishing this article.
WWDC and Jailbreak iOS 7 – Future Plans
As stated in past reports on Evasion, the developers and hackers behind public jailbreak utilities plan on waiting until iOS 7’s release before pushing out the next major jailbreak tool to ensure maximum device and software compatibility.
With iOS 7 scheduled to be a key point of discussion at this year’s WWDC event in San Francisco, it’s expected that the company will release the next major iOS installment sometime this fall, which in turn pushes back the release of any and all jailbreak utilities until the same general timeframe. While it took expert hackers months to finally release a jailbreak for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 to the public, we expect it won’t take nearly as long this time around, as the evad3rs and p0sixninja have already confirmed their active efforts to develop a jailbreak in advance.
Today, in a new report, MacRumors suggests that certain devices from within Apple’s high-security campus are already running pre-release versions of the next major firmware release. Although various sites have reported receiving traffic from iOS 7-powered devices over the past few months, as of last week, MacRumors has noticed a significant influx in their own traffic logs. The reported surge in traffic originates from Apple’s mandatory IP address block, which also suggests that the company may have initiated a new phase of testing for iOS 7 prior to this year’s upcoming WWDC.
As a result of WWDC, the developers will hopefully better understand iOS 7 and the challenges they will inevitably face when creating the next major Untethered jailbreak.
