Yes, iOS 7 may be the biggest change that’s happened to iOS since the original iPhone and there are quite a few reasons to upgrade, but there are also some compelling reasons not to upgrade right away. Here are five them for you to ponder while you read about iOS 7 and decide what to do about this latest iOS update from Apple.
Last month, we told you that Joshua Hill aka p0sixninja planned on publicly releasing a repository ofÂ open source jailbreak components created by him to help other developers and hackers learn how jailbreaks are created.
The website,Â openjailbreak.org, is now open to all and currently contains various libraries that were used in some or the other jailbreak process.
Last week, a hacking team called UnthreadedJBÂ appeared out of nowhere to release an untethered jailbreak for older iPhones, iPads and iPod touches running iOS 5.1.1 or earlier. The team behind the jailbreak has now gone onto claim that they have a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 running on newer devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S etc. This is newsworthy, since evasi0n doesnâ€™t work on iOS 6.1.3 and above.

Square Enix, developers of iOS gameÂ Deus Ex: The Fall, have just released an update to removes the anti-jailbreak code that prevented jailbreakers from firing guns, an important part of the game.
Jailbreakers who bought the game through the App StoreÂ for $6.99 are understandably annoyed, and voiced their frustration on reddit and the gameâ€™s App Store review section.
Security vulnerabilities are a terrible thing, but they happen to everyone, including Apple. According to an article in The New York Times, details of a “zero-day exploit” for iOS were sold for $500,000 at one point. We’re not exactly sure what this exploit entails, nor whether Apple has already fixed it, but still, this is a serious business.

As we reported yesterday, jailbreakers were unable to play the new iOS game Deus Ex: The Fall developed by Square Enix as they were prevented from firing guns, an important part of the game.
Jailbreakers who bought the game through the App Store for $6.99 are understandably annoyed, and voiced their frustration on reddit and the gameâ€™s App Store review section.
There was quite a long lull in the jailbreaking scene after the release of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, until recently when the evad3rs team released evasi0n, the first untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices running iOS 6.
The prolonged lull gave rise to fears that jailbreaking was dead, and these fears continue to exist as Apple continues to make iOS more secure version-over-version.
