iOS 7 Jailbreak Already In The Works?

It’s been rumored t that the Evasi0n jailbreak could be the last public jailbreak since Apple closed the security holes that make Evasi0n work. Evad3rs team member David Wang (a.k.a. Planetbeing) even said it would be difficult to jailbreak iOS 7. But now a team member from the Greenpois0n dev team, Joshua Hill (a.k.a. p0sixninja), hinted that it’s a definite possibility.

Hill took to his Twitter account saying, “Well, so far it looks like the next jailbreak might be created entirely by me.”

He continued with a clarifying statement: “Evad3rs haven’t gone anywhere, I’ve just discovered all the needed exploits on my own over the past few months.”

The latest version of iOS to be jailbroken is iOS 6.1.2., which means that iOS 6.1.3. has yet to be exploited. Apple specifically patched the exploits that the Evad3rs team would need to jailbreak it.

It’s unclear if a jailbreak will arrive for iOS 6.1.3. or if the dev team will just wait for iOS 7 since the new software is expected to be announced sometime in June.
