Jailbreaking may now be legal in the United States but that doesn’t mean Apple is happily supporting it. Apple is still against it (rightly so) and have confirmed that jailbreaking any of their device could void the device’s warranty.
Cult of Mac got the following statement from the Apple PR.
“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.”
While Apple wants you to believe that jailbreak is a bad thing to do, there are about 10m jailbroken devices. One reason why Apple is playing the “degrading experience” card could be to refrain users from installing pirated apps, which can be only done after jailbreaking.
