iPhone Jailbreak Update: Apple Unstable Response
Jailbreaking the iPhone has always got right up Apple’s nose with the company constantly pushing out new iOS versions to break that jailbreak, and as we reported earlier, Jalibreaking has now been legalised over in the US of A, you can check out that article (here).
According to an article over on PC Mag by Brian Heater, the iPhone maker delivered their official response on the matter to Cult of Mac, which says…”Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience.”
Apple goes on to say, “As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.
According to Apple jailbreaking leaves the device open to the “malicious attacks” Apple strives to avoid with their closed ecosystem and App Store vetting process.
Apple also wrote their concerns about jailbreaking on their support page which goes “It is also important to note that unauthorized modification of the iOS is a violation of the iPhone end-user license agreement. Because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software.”
So basically although jailbreaking is now legal it doesn’t mean Apple is going to roll over and accept that as if you do jailbreak your iPhone they are saying the warranty will be void.
