iOS 6 was introduced a while ago. Many iPhone users don’t bother to jailbreak their phone. But those who have a good reason to do so are still waiting for iOS 6 to get a jailbreak. While a jailbreak solution is still unconfirmed at the moment, hackers at Hack In the Box did demonstrate ways that this version of iOS may be hacked. The hackers who attended the event have a solid background in iPhone jailbreaking. But so far a working iOS jailbreak for public consumption is out of the reach.
All the previous techniques that have been used have basically been made for the most part useless… But there’s still room to move and its still possible to exploit the kernel in iOS6, but the bar has definitely been raised.
explained Mark Dowd, founder of Azimuth Security. Jailbreaking iPhones is not for everyone. Apple is not exactly a fan of it. In fact, with every new version of iOS, the process of hacking it gets more difficult. But iOS 6 will get hacked sooner or later. The question is when at this point.
It is no secret that folks who didn’t order their iPhone 5 early have to wait a bit to get their hands on the gadget. The demand for the device has been overwhelming. Apple seems to have trouble producing enough iPhones to satisfy everyone. According to Bloomberg, Apple’s choice of material for the new iPhone could be a contributing factor. The quality control procedures at Foxconn could be making the problem worse (Apple does not like scratched phones to be shipped to consumers).
Many iPhone 5 owners have been complaining their device getting scratched too easily. The very same thing could happen during the manufacturing process. The stricter standard controls are slowing down production it seems. Will Apple choose different material for iPhone 6 and beyond? We will have to wait and see.
