Apple releases iOS 7.0.6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch [Updated]


Apple has just released iOS 7.0.6 (Build number: 11B651). The update is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

According to the release note the update includes a fix for SSL connection verification.

The update seems to be available Over-the-air, and is 35.5MB in size on an iPhone 5s. Launch the Settings app, and navigate to General > Software Update to download and install the update.


Jailbreakers are advised to avoid upgrading to iOS 7.0.6, and wait for for the evad3rs dev team to confirm if it is safe to update to the latest iOS software update.

Update 1:

Here are the direct download links:

Update 2:

According to the support document, iOS 7.0.6 fixes the following security issue:

Data Security

Available for: iPhone 4 and later, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2 and later

Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS

Description: Secure Transport failed to validate the authenticity of the connection. This issue was addressed by restoring missing validation steps.

Update 3:

MuscleNerd of the evad3rs’ team has advice jailbreakers to avoid upgrading to iOS 7.0.6. However, he has said that they will try to release a new version of evasi0n7 for iOS 7.0.6 as the security fix appears to be critical.

Update 4:

Apple has also released iOS 6.1.6 for iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G.

Update 5:

If iOS 7.0.6 update doesn’t show up in the Settings app, then check out this step-by-step guide on how to install the update manually.

    • ALi AzAd

      this version can’t be jailbreak

      • DrunkMunki

        yes it can, see comments below
        i just did it and it works

      • John Agnew

        stop posting shit when you obviously know nothing

  • Kwopau

    hmm. Even with 7.1 coming soon I guess I’ll just hold off on this update and just install 7.1 when it’s released.

    • arolaunch

      Not a good idea (if you’re not jailbroken) this patched security holes. Basically makes it less likely that someone can hack into your phone.

      • Kwopau

        Oh I did not know that and just noticed the update from this page. Really thank you for pointing that out~ I guess I’ll have to update mine then :)

  • rotopenguin

    Any word on it breaking GBA4iOS?

    • arolaunch

      Most Probably since that is a Jailbreak app and the Evad3rs have not yet confirmed it’s jailbreakable.

      • Bob

        Gba4ios is an application that doesn’t require jailbreak. It uses a distribution method using an enterprise certificate and switching the date before February 18, 2014. The developer also stated that it should work in 7.0.6 through his twitter. The app is located on

    • Bob

      The developer states that gba4ios 2.0 is still functioning properly even with the update. It should be fine.

  • chrishawn

    I suspect this is mainly to deal with the GBA4iOS workaround

  • André Scala

    yes, wait for 7.1 :)

    • Allii Allee

      I was also thinking that i should wait for 7.1

    How To Jailbreak iOS 7.0.6:

    Step 1: Download iOS 7.0.6 for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Restore your device to the aforementioned firmware using iTunes on your PC or Mac.

    Step 2: Download Evasi0n7 1.0.5 [Windows / Mac].

    Step 3: If you’re using a Mac, download the app called HexEdit from here. If you’re a Windows user, download Free Hex Editor Neo from here. Both apps are free.

    Step 4: Start the Hex editing program, select the Evasi0n 7 file and then open Evasi0n 7->Contents->MacOS->Evasi0n7, as shown in the screenshots below:

    Step 5: Hit CMD+F on your Mac’s keyboard to bring up the ‘Find’
    dialog window. On Windows, you can press CTRL+F to achieve the same

    Step 6: This step is important: search for “11B511” and replace it
    with “11B651” as shown in the screenshot above. In case you’re
    wondering, 11B651 is the build number which iOS 7.0.6 carries. Also keep
    in mind that the search is case sensitive, therefore be sure to use
    capital alphabets as outlined in this step.

    Step 7: Now from the ‘File’ menu on top, click ‘Save’ and close the Hex editor window.

    That’s it, Evasi0n7 1.0.5 will now identify the just released iOS
    7.0.6 firmware file. You can now use the usual steps to jailbreak your
    device using Evasi0n7.

      Thanks!!! This fix works just perfect.

    • DrunkMunki

      CONFIRMED, the edit allowed me to JB 7.0.6 on my iPAD 2 WIFI
      can be downloaded here for the windows version!M9ByASgY!DY8UFT1sWbdagkApCh980RTj0xc_9BlAOquZWUwweSI

    • Amir

      there is no find and replace in windows

      • DrunkMunki

        download the file above and use that, it will JB 7.0.6

        • OvrDriVE

          your file does god only knows what. i know i tryed it and wasn’t dumb enuff to let it do whatever damage it is setup to do, just follow naveeds directions. works perfectly.

          • DrunkMunki

            mate your welcome to change the hex code yourself, this was provided for the people who dont have the technical know how.
            You’re welcome to virus scan it but not everyone on the internet is out to get you.

            I used this exact program to JB my ipads and worked flawlessly

          • OvrDriVE

            i did modify it myself. but file you have listed threw up several red flags and just wouldn’t run. which makes me wonder why. file i modified myself worked flawlessly. personally i’m not to technical but i found naveeds instructions simple and easy to follow and they worked unlike the file you linked. at least for me anyway
