Apple’s Warning Against Jailbreaking

Seeing as how the Electra 11.3.1 jailbreak is supposed to be released soon, it looks like Apple put out a statement on why you shouldn’t jailbreak: Apple: Unauthorized modification of iOS can cause security vulnerabilities, instability, shortened battery life, and other issues. I definitely find that ironic…

  • Security Vulnerabilities: I’ve seen jailbreak developers release patches for devices with Cydia before Apple puts them out
  • Instability: Okay, sure. But if an occasional crash is the cost of having things like themes & hooks into Springboard, it’s a price I’m willing to pay. Especially because iOS isn’t that much more stable without being jailbroken.
  • Shortened Battery Life: This coming from the company that was secretly throttling older device “to save battery life”. Sorry if I don’t believe this one.

I have not yet read the rest of the page, but I’m sure it will be much of the same above. I’m not interested in Jailbreaking to download free apps; it’s for the ability to customize the device i own & want to do with as i please.
