iOS 7 untethered jailbreak released

An untethered iOS 7 jailbreak has been released giving iPad and iPhone owners access to more of their device’s software options than Apple allows.

Earlier today, December 22, the Evasi0n team announced that it had released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 devices, more than three months after the latest Apple software was rolled out for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

The jailbreakers have suggested that the untethered iOS 7 jailbreak will work on all devices running iOS 7 through to iOS 7.0.4 and will take just five minutes to install.

With the Evasi0n team publishing step-by-step installation instructions alongside the iOS 7 jailbreak, they have claimed the jailbreak will work on both OS X and Windows-based machines.

As always we must warn you of the risks with jailbreaking your device. With jailbreak software putting users at risk of security vulnerabilities, installing it to your Apple handset will void your smartphone or tablet’s warranty. Further iOS 7 jailbreak concerns include the risk of a shortened battery life and an inability to update to future software releases.

Given Apple’s stern stance on jailbreaks, it is expected the Cupertino-based company will look to release an iOS patch to fix the software vulnerabilities exploited by the jailbreakers in the near future.
