Is an UnTethered iOS 7 Jailbreak worth forfeiting a 6.1.3 Jailbreak Utility? With the public release of iOS 7 right around the corner (slated for mass release sometime in September) and with the evad3rs having confirmed that they won’t release an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, development on the next major Untethered jailbreak utility will ensue promptly after the final version of iOS 7 is made available. Recently, a new and breaking report surfaced that suggested the iPhone 5S will be revealed on September 10th and released alongside iOS 7 soon after. Regarding iOS 7, was passing up a jailbreak for 6.1.3 worth it?
Absolutely. In the grand scheme of things, iOS 7 will not only bring hundreds of new features (the prominent ones are outlined in our in-depth article on the topic), but it will also be released alongside new iDevices.
In addition to releasing the iPhone 5S this fall, Apple is also expected to launch a less expensive iPhone for emerging markets dubbed the iPhone 5C, as well as new full-sized and mini iPad models. If the evad3rs and/or p0sixninja had released a 6.1.3 jailbreak, the vulnerabilities that could otherwise be saved for exploiting new devices, like the ones mentioned above, would go to waste.
