Aside from a non-existant 6.1.3 Jailbreak, here’s he future of iOS Recently, the staff of Jailbreak Evasi0n has received a number of questions not only surrounding iOS 6.1.4, 6.1.3 and jailbreaking, but also iOS and future versions of Apple’s mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. As most of our readers are already aware, both iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 are dreaded updates from Apple that patch, or break, evasi0n’s ability to function – therefore, devices that update to or past 6.1.3 cannot jailbreak. Furthermore, both the evad3rs and p0sixninja have confirmed that the developers will wait to release a new utility until iOS 7 is made available to the public, which means there regrettably won’t be a 6.1.3 jailbreak. So, what’s next for iOS post 6.1.3 and 6.1.4?
Shortly after the release of Apple’s strange iPhone 5-exclusive 6.1.4 update, many were under the impression that the company would issue another unifying firmware like iOS 6.1.5 to avoid fragmentation. Alternatively, there were a few brief reports floating around the Apple blogosphere that suggested the public may see an even bigger update with various revisions and modifications in the form of iOS 6.2.
Interestingly, Apple opted not to choose either route and has instead dedicated themselves to their major upcoming iOS 7.0 release this fall.
Moreover, if there had been more substantial updates following iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4, it’s certainly possible that the current jailbreak situation would differ greatly.
As part of an effort to obtain more information on our readers and their devices, we’d like to see your answers to the following question in the comment section or on our direct iOS 6.1.3 questionnaire article: is your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on a firmware that evasi0n supports (6.0 through 6.1.2) or is your device running 6.1.3 or 6.1.4?
