David Ashman, the well-known iOS developer behind the highly popular LockInfo jailbreak tweak, offered some important information on Sunday for LockInfo fans regarding the future of LockInfo for iOS. Currently, LockInfo 5 is available in Cydia with iOS 5 and iOS 6 support, and the developer needed to completely re-write LockInfo 5 to make it iOS 6 compatible.
With iOS 7 around the corner, hackers everywhere will be working hard on trying to crack the new operating system for jailbreak fans after its official public release. Because there is no jailbreak yet, developers have yet to have a fair chance to look into modifying things with the new operating system. There's no ETA on any kind of jailbreak for iOS 7 yet, but developers like Ashman are confident in such magic being made eventually.
Ashman’s statement about the future of LockInfo has to do with iOS 7 compatibility. The developer notes that he has every intention of creating an iOS 7-compatible version of the software if a jailbreak arises. He also notes that he plans to call it LockInfo 7, since it was confusing for some users that LockInfo 5 was compatible with iOS 6.
