  • Apple Already Testing iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2, and 7.1 Ahead of the iOS 7.0 Release


    Apple is set to release iOS 7.0 this Wednesday, September 18th. The iOS 7 golden master is already out to developers so they can get their applications ready.

    Interestingly, even though iOS 7.0 has not even been released yet, traffic is being spotted on the Internet from iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2, and iOS 7.1 devices, as our friends at 9to5Mac report.

    These updated versions of iOS 7 are interesting. Itís unknown what kinds of security fixes, stability fixes, or new features Apple may be planning with these software updates. We know that the evad3rs are working with iOS 7 golden master to see whatís doable, but these updates may hinder progress. Thankfully, pod2g doesn't think a jailbreak will be released any time soon, so we have some time to see what these updates will bring to the table and whether or not the evad3rs' exploits will work on them.

    As more information surfaces on these software updates, we will be sure to let everyone know.

      Even so they always do this. I'm assuming Evad3rs will wait for 7.1 before launching anyway.

      Apple probably left some "obvious" holes in 7.0 and "figured them out" for 7.1. (IE 7 will be jailbreakable but 7.1 won't) .... 7.01 and 7.02 probably represent basic updates and fixes to the crap the forgot for the 7.0 launch. I say obvious, but I really mean very difficult...
      It's obvious to the people who invented and wrote the code, but difficult when you're a programmer trying to backward engineer your way through thousands upon thousands of lines of someone else's crap code.

      Apple seems to secretly love the jailbreak community - it's where some of their greatest "original" ideas come from!

      Indeed. For those who call iPhone users "iSheep," I tell them not to confuse them with us, the wolves in sheep's clothing...

      I think what it means is they want to stay on schedule with the 7.0 release - nothing to do with counter-JB'ing measures. They can't know what exploits JB devs have and this paranoia is misplaced.
      You might almost have predicted the ceding of one/several updates in such fast succession on the heels of an overhaul on the scale of 7.0.

      Of course they are. Anything to delay a jailbreak.

      They have already been working on a few different ones for months. I too hope one is available on the official release of iOS 7.

      Not surprised to hear they are working on 7.0.x. I have GM installed and had my phone randomly reboot while trying to send a MMS yesterday.

      Now try and tell me IOS is better than Android. YOU CANT.
      IOS7 isn't even released to the public yet and they are already working on a fix (IOS 7.0.1) then they are working on a fix for that (IOS 7.0.2) then more fixes and maybe an extra feature (IOS 7.1) so HOW can you tell me IOS is better?
      Pathetic. its worse than releasing beta games and having 0-day updates to fix the bugs and make it final.

      IOS7 is nice but its still got lots of bugs. I think they should wait till IOS7.1 before releasing a jailbreak to keep the exploit till then. If they jailbreak now they will loose an exploit for 7.1.
      I wont update till the next jailbreak but I would like to see IOS7 on the iPad3 but as Apple are so lame and refuse to give the iPad3 features the iPad4 is getting I dont really care about it anymore. Apple suck, pity their devices are pretty good. I always said the iPhone and iPad would be the best devices ever and everyone would own one if Apple didn't make it.
      If you let Samsung make the OS for the iPhone it would be the number one device and everyone would want one. Maybe not Samsung but you know what I mean. Apple might make ok devices even if they are behind by about 3 years they still ruin it by refusing to give it features it can clearly have (Siri on iPhone4, that new share feature to iPad3, SMS/MMS support to iPads).

      Guessing here, but I would gamble a jailbreak for io7 is more likely sooner than later. With all the radical changes coupled with the idea of it being something new, it's bound to have holes and bugs like the first run of anything new. Besides what's-his-name isn't working for Apple anymore...Keeping my fingers crossed.

      You said it. I actually think they are able to produce software that is non- jailbreakable if you will, but leave just enough open to get genius ideas from the jailbreak world. So who really is reverse- engineering Inadvertent way for apple to get the employees that will never work for them.

      As much as I'm liking the look of iOS 7, I'm not updating until a jailbreak is released. There are simply too many tweaks I've gotten over the years to justify downgrading to stock iOS, even if iOS 7 implements many previously jailbreak-only features.

      I understand Apple's delicate position regarding the matter, but they need to acknowledge the fact that many brilliant ideas for improving iOS come out of the jailbreaking community. It really is as simple as letting the user install anything but for some reason this is impossible for Apple to do. If they do manage to close all loopholes and a jailbreak isn't possible, they'll pay the price. All future versions of iOS would probably look the same.

      It's not that simple from a customer service standpoint. If you allow users to modify the OS at their will then you have to deal with Genius Bar appointments from people who screw up their devices by installing some random tweak they downloaded off the net.
