iOS 7 went live on October 18th and, since then, has been plagued by problems. Although this is nothing new, it is irritating to consumers to find that this all-singing, all-dancing iOS doesn’t work quite as it should. Just after the firmware was rolled out, Apple launched 2 brand new handsets as well, the budget iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S with its brand new fingerprint sensor and a revolutionary A7 64-bit processor, not to mention the M7 Motion Control Coprocessor.

Shortly after release Apple issued iOS 7.0.1 to fix an issue on TouchID, the fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5S – apparently, although TouchID authentication was successful, iTunes was still insisting on Apple ID login as well. This update was purely for the 2 new handsets, although it was never made clear what it fixed on the iPhone 5C.
Not long after iOS 7 was released, yet another one of those Lock Screen security issues popped up. A series of intricate taps meant that access could be gained to the contents of a device, bypassing the lockscreen altogether. Apple released iOS 7.0.2 to fix this, only to find that. Although that problem was fixed, another Lock Screen hack reared up. This one only allows access to the native Phone app but it still gives a would-be hacker access to contact details, call history and messages.

On top of all of this, some users have been complaining about extremely fast battery drain, problems with iMessage and issues with iTunes. Therefore, word Is out that iOS 7.0.3 is on its way in the very near future. Apparently, it has already been released to Apple Partners and employees for testing purposes so it should be with us any day now.
Jailbreakers Stay Away :
However, a strong word of warning is needed here. If you are waiting patiently for the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak, you MUST NOT upgrade to iOS 7.0.3 when it is released. This issue of the firmware will serve to block the exploits currently being tested by evad3rs and will render your chances of being able to jailbreak as nil.
Evad3rs are currently hard at work on the jailbreak although they are faced with several issues that they haven’t had to face in past years. For a start, they have the rebuild of iOS 7 to contend with; the fact that, for the first time ever, everything has been revamped and rebuilt. They have new features to think about, things that weren’t there before. They also have to consider the newer devices and the features they have. The iPhone 5C isn’t too much of a problem but the 64-bit chip and the Motion Control processor are both hurdles that have to be got round.
Important Notice : Cydia iOS 7 in the Horizon
All that is asked for is patience while they work on the utility and a strong request Not to Upgrade to iOS 7.0.3 firmware . Cydia is already ported on iOS 7 as shown in the images . Only a jailbreak can install cydia on your device , which is a week away from release according to rumors .
