In wake of NSA’s data-snooping Prism revelations, Apple said that iMessages are protected byÂ end-to-end encryption, and even if they wanted to, they canâ€™t decrypt them. But this claim has been challenged by Cyril Cattiaux akaÂ pod2G, who is a member of the evad3rs teamÂ that is currently working on an iOS 7 jailbreak.Â He says that someone inside Apple can intercept iMessages since the company controls the public key distribution that powers the end-to-end encryption.
Without making any promises or revealing too many details, noted jailbreak developer Pod2G tweeted today that he is “more and more confident” about the possibility of an iOS 7 jailbreak.” You can almost hear a collective sigh of relief from iOS owners who are curious about iOS 7, but don’t want to give up their jailbreak.
pod2g believes that the way Apple has released an iOS SDK, which allows developers to develop apps and release them in the App Store, Apple should extend the SDK to allow developers to develop and submit tweaks and themes, which can be approved by Apple.
Apple released the iOS 6.1.3 software update on March 19th. It fixed the Lock screen bug and brought improvements to Maps app for Japanese users.
It has been almost a month since evasi0n, the most eagerly awaited jailbreak was released for iOS 6.x and new devices like iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad mini.
