WWDC 2013, iOS 7, 6.1.3 and the Future of Jailbreaking
In years past, Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference (commonly referred to as WWDC) has played host to numerous unveilings, including both software and hardware. In fact, up until the iPhone 4S, new iterations of the iPhone were unveiled during the conference. However, in an effort to focus on developers, Apple separated the iPhone portion of the conference these past two years and held separate press events to specifically showcase the iPhone. During this years conference, Apple is scheduled to unveil iOS 7. In this post, we’ll discuss the next major iOS installment, iOS 6.1.3 and the future of jailbreaking.
Untethered iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Update, iOS 7 and the Future of Jailbreaking – Today, as part of our effort at Evasi0n Jailbreak to keep our readers constantly informed, we’ve put together this basic guide to outline the status of the next UnTethered Jailbreak. As a number of our avid site users are already aware, Apple effectively patched the iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 Untethered evasion jailbreak with the release of iOS 6.1.3 on March 19th. In this article, we’ll not only explore the reasons why the evad3rs have opted against developing a utility to jailbreak 6.1.3, but we’ll also examine iOS 7 and jailbreaking’s place in the future.
Future Jailbreak for iOS 7 In Development, Apple Announces WWDC 2013 – Earlier this morning, Apple announced the company’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, more commonly known as WWDC, will take place from June 10th to the 14th at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California. During the event, Apple is expected to provide an “in-depth look at what’s next in iOS  and OS X,” as stated on Apple’s own developer site. As most of our readers are already aware, Apple’s semi-recent release of iOS 6.1.3 effectively patched a number of vulnerabilities exploited by Evasi0n in the iOS 6 jailbreak, leaving those who updated stuck on the latest firmware without a jailbreak in sight. However, both p0sixninja and the evad3rs have confirmed that they’ll develop new jailbreak utilities once Apple releases iOS 7 to the general public.
