In a report by Java World on Feb. 9, 2013, the evasi0n development team released the untethered jailbreak for Apple iOS 6.0-6.1 devices. There were multiple jail break attempts that touted a working jailbreak for Apple's device, but all of them proved unreliable until this latest release.
The definition of jail breaking your phone has become synonymous with Apple devices:
Jailbreaking' is the process in which locked-down software is opened up to external applications outside the platform's protective fence. It allows third-party contibutors to gain further access to the device's features, which has spurred on a huge—albeit entirely separate—ecosystem for non-Apple App Store applications." (Source ZDNET)
The Digital Millennium Copy Right Act of 2010 made jail breaking your Apple device officially legal. Despite Apple trying their hardest to make it illegal. If you decide to jailbreak any of your Apple devices it voids the warranty immediately. You can restore the device to its original default settings through Apple iTunes, if you change your mind about the jailbreak.
Once you jailbreak your Apple device you will not lose any of the features and functionality of your device. Your device becomes fully functioning and now has complete choice over which wireless smartphone network you can access your device on.
Even though jail breaking your Apple device makes it open to apps and features outside the Apple App store, it can make the device more safe and secure with third party developers being able to fix security vulnerabilities faster than Apple releases iOS updates.
The evasi0n jailbreaking tool is extremely user friendly and can easily be downloaded on your Apple device and be freed from its constraints with a few simple clicks. The jailbreak tool can be found at either major news source quoted in this article by clicking on their name.
