iOS 7 Jailbreak Most Likely Won’t Arrive in 2013

Ever since iOS 7 was officially released to the public back in September, we kept looking to the jailbreak gods to see when an iOS 7 jailbreak would arrive. Of course, we never expected it to arrive within the first month or two, as the iOS 6 jailbreak wasn’t released until February 2013, which was several months after iOS 6′s official launch. However, a release time window would obviously be much appreciated.

With today’s release of the first beta of iOS 7.1, a time window for an iOS 7 jailbreak might be getting honed in on. Jailbreak developer iH8sn0w tweeted out that the iOS 7.1 beta 1 expires on January 13, 2014. There will likely be several betas from now until January 13, but that expiration can tell us a lot about when to expect the final version, as well as an official jailbreak.

With that said, we’ll most likely be waiting for 2014 to roll around before we’ll see it. Based on past iOS releases, the final version of iOS 6.1 beta 1 came out on November 1, 2012, and the public release was launched that next year right around the Super Bowl towards the end of January and the beginning of February. If Apple is aiming for that same timeline with iOS 7.1, we’ll likely see the official release of iOS 7 hit around that time in 2014.

iOS 7.1 will most likely be the version for which an iOS 7 jailbreak will be based off of, so you certainly shouldn’t expect an iOS 7 jailbreak in the next month or two, which means we’re definitely looking at a 2014 release for the jailbreak. Of course, while we don’t exactly know when iOS 7.1 will officially launch to the public, we can expect it sometime in early 2014, which will be when we’ll expect an iOS 7 jailbreak as well; Apple is pretty predictable with their release cycles, and we have no reason to believe that iOS 7 will be any different than past releases.

As for what issues iOS 7.1 addresses, it seems to be mostly packing bug fixes that will remedy some issues plaguing iOS device owners. Apple mentions issues with Bluetooth and an issue with the iTunes Match library, specifically. If you’re curious about trying out the new beta, you can do so yourself without being a developer. Just keep in mind that you install the beta at your own risk.

    Ugh, Im done with Apple. Starting to realize more and more that without the JB its just an expensive hunk of junk, ever since I bought my first iPhone its always the same thing, when is the JB? When is the JB? I don’t use pirated games, I have a Playstation for games, its just the tweaks, Lockinfo, Winterboard, things they should have had from the get-go, I have fun playing with Cydia and all that. Apple is greedy as hell and totally phony with their image, they didn’t invent anything, ever. Sue everybody and get mad that competition exists, compete? How dare they! My MacBook Pro sucks, damn things heats up and shuts off on its own every other hour, iTunes makes me want to chuck this thing like a damned frisbee at a greedy fake hippy. Ri-goddamn-diculous. And whats with this passcode thing on ios 7? I can’t even turn it off smh. Can’t even set a wallpaper properly. Screw you Apple, screw you Steve and screw Siri, corny as hell. You design accessories for hipster d-bags, nothing more. Put out the same phone over and over acting like you re-invented the wheel putting out one new dimwitted feature with each release which could have been released years ago, conniving bunch of…
