Apple Reminds iOS Users The Dangers Of Jailbreaking Their Devices

Evad3rs released their untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and other iOS 6 devices on Monday, even going as far as educating those who are interested in how exactly jailbreaking works. It was a moment many potential jail breakers were looking forward to, which was made more apparent once it was downloaded 1.7 million times.

iPhone users have been able to legally jailbreak their devices for some time now, although Apple has been reminding its users the dangers of jailbreaking since the first iPhone jailbreak was released. Seeing how popular Evad3rs’ jailbreak has become, Apple is once again reminding iOS users the dangers of jailbreaking their devices.

Apple has updated its unauthorized modification Knowledge Base article to “help” its iOS users learn just how dangerous it is to jailbreak their devices. They list some potential problems being program instability, dropped phone calls, security vulnerability and the shortening of battery life. Apple also has reminded its users that jailbreaking their iOS devices violates its iOS end-user license agreement and will reserve the right to deny service to jailbroken devices.
