Right now, the jailbreak community is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the iOS 7 jailbreak utility. Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference is due to start on Monday 10th June in San Francisco where it is expected that the redesigned iOS 7 firmware will finally be revealed before being passed on to the developers to take a look at. Provided all is well, it should be released in the Fall, alongside the iPhone 5S. Update 4th July 2015 : Evasi0n Jailbreak is available for iOS 7 jailbreaking .

However, many consumers have already confirmed that, until an iOS 7 jailbreak is made available, they will not be upgrading to the new firmware. P0sixninja, previously of the Chronic Dev team, has been working on the jailbreak for some time and has made huge progress. He says that once he has finished signing code for the exploits, iOS 7 will be his, meaning that he alone will build the new jailbreak.
iOS 7 Jailbreak Exploit is Ready :
Most of the exploits are already available to build a jailbreak and many have asked why it can’t be done for iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4. It’s not a case that it can’t be done, it’s more that it isn’t worth it for such small upgrades. Once the exploits are used for a jailbreak, they cannot be used again. The chances of Apple patching some, if not all of them, not long after the jailbreak, are virtually 100% so, to use them now would mean there not being a jailbreak solution for iOS 7. Using them now would also mean giving Apple the heads up on the exploits and allowing them time to patch them, and any others that might be discovered.

Release Date for iOS 7 Jailbreak :
Right now we cannot give any timeline on when the iOS 7 jailbreak will be released. iOS 7 itself has to be released publicly first and that isn’t going to be for few months yet. Once that has been released, the jailbreak itself has to be built, stage by stage and then thoroughly tested on each OS first. Going on the last few big jailbreak releases it is likely to be around a month after the firmware is officially released. Stay tuned for more news.
