There are many iPhone 5 users out there who cannot wait to hear of news of an untethered jailbreak for the iOS 6 device. However at the moment there isn’t one, nor is there any sign of one appearing very soon. There have been some rumors going around in relation to a tethered jailbreak for most iOS 6 devices in the pipeline but that is it.
Be weary of advertised iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak promises
Forbes recently posted an article that said there was also an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 on the way, but that it may take some time to arrive. At the moment the only jailbreak available for iOS 6 is for those who own the iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G or the iPhone 4. This comes courtesy of Redsn0w.
This news of course is not good if you are the owner of an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 or the iPad. Apparently though there are some websites that have been scamming owners of devices by claiming that they have the jailbreak for the iPhone 5 in particular. However be aware that these are nothing but ways to get you to part with hard earned cash. Not one of the websites claiming to have the jailbreak for the iPhone 5 actually has it. There is no such thing out there. If you see any site that offers to jailbreak your iPhone 5, you should steer well clear of them and don’t give them any money until a reputable tech blog confirms it.
You’ve been warned.
