Hacker supplies proof that iOS 7 has already been jailbroken

Hacker supplies proof that iOS 7 has already been jailbroken

  It seems Apple has lost yet another battle with the jailbreak community
as Cupertino’s yet-to-be-released iOS 7 has already been jailbroken.
iOS developer and jailbreak community member Ryan Petrich recently
posted a screenshot on his Twitter account showing his newly jailbroken
iPod touch although he didn’t offer any explanation alongside the image.
Petrich is a well known figure in the jailbreak community as he
previously released programs like LiveClock and Activator, the latter of
which showed up in his iOS 7 jailbreak screenshot. It’s unclear which
hole(s) the developer used to circumvent Apple’s security and odds are,
it’ll remain a secret at least until the software is released to the
general public.
  The reason for keeping the vulnerability a secret is simple – if it
were to become public knowledge now, Apple would have plenty of time to
patch it before iOS 7 is launched. Moving forward, it looks like most
hackers have abandoned iOS 6 and are devoting their full attention to
the upcoming release.
iOS 7 first surfaced at WWDC 2013
in June following months of rumors indicating a major overhaul was in
the works. Those rumors turned out to be true as Jony Ive, senior vice
president of industrial design at Apple, created what the company
described as the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the
iPhone.

The second beta
for iOS 7 was released just last week with a number of few features in
tow. Apple said they will be launching iOS 7 to the general public later
this fall.
