iOS 7 Jailbreak is Far Off

I updated to iOS 7 today and was excited. The new features are awesome for the iPhone 5 and I plan to make a review/summary on it sometime soon.

But I was really excited for the new update because I can't wait to be able to jailbreak it. Then I thought about it...the jailbreak may be farther than we think.

The guys behind the iOS 6 jailbreaks, known as the Evaders (can't remember the exact spelling) recently hinted that they are close to an iOS 7 jailbreak. But I don't think we'll be seeing the release at least this week or even next. Why is that?

For one, who knows what issues may be lying in the final release of iOS 7 and who knows how the consumers will react to it. iOS 6 received lots of backlash when it arrived on iPhones because it removed Google Maps. For this reason, our jailbreak may not be released until after iOS 7.0.1 or 7.1 is released.

Another reason is that the iOS 7 software was released today for the older iOS devices but the newer devices haven't been released yet. The new iPhone 5S and 5C are slated to be released on September 23 in the United States and later for other parts of the world. And this isn't considering the release of a new iPad that may be released this Fall if the team is working on one for the iPads too.

Also, since the final release is out, who knows if their exploits have been unknowingly patched? Apple may have found the vulnerabilities and been able to patch them.

For these reasons alone, I believe that the iOS 7 jailbreak is a long way off. We may be waiting at least a month before it is released.

But stayed tuned as we will be waiting patiently and posting the results we come across when it becomes available. I know I, personally, can't wait!
