Four days ago it was said that an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 with iOS 6 could come following the next Apple update from iOS 6.01. to 6.1. However many users have said that they would like to see the jailbreak sooner.
iOS 6 untethered jailbreak may be waiting for iPad Mini
Some readers have said that if there is a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 already, what will happen if Apple closes off the exploit when they release an update to iOS? While the majority of people realize all the work that goes into the jailbreak, they still want the software ASAP.
They are going on the theory that it is better to have something that may be lesser at the moment that comes with an advantage, rather than wait for something better and it may not come about explains Product-Reviews. These people say that if hackers have the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak then it should be released for the iPhone 5 straight away.
There have been a lot of statements in the press about companies offering the jailbreak for a price. These websites say that they will unlock the iPhone 5 for a sum of money. At the moment it is thought that all of them are fake and you may wish to think twice before handing money over to them.
Other news in regards to jailbreaking has come in the form of news of DMCA exemptions. When the new rules come into force, it will be illegal to jailbreak the iPad, while still legal to jailbreak the iPhone.
Speaking of Apple tablets, rumor has it that the next iOS update may release alongside the iPad Mini. So we may see the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak only come about after Apple releases the iPad Mini and the following update.
