Apple credits jailbreakers for helping make iOS 7.1 more secure
We often describe the relationship between Apple and the jailbreak community as being involved in a game of cat and mouse. Apple puts out new software, the jailbreakers find the security holes and exploit them, then Apple patches those holes. But, Apple may be trying to change that relationship a bit by actually crediting jailbreakers for their part in the process.
If you take a look at the "About the security content of iOS 7.1" page on Apple's own website, you'll see each of the security fixes put into the newest version of the iOS software along with credits for who made the issues known to Apple. There are quite a wide range of credits including the Google Chrome Security Team, various YouTubers, tons of developers and white hats, and even evad3rs. That last one is interesting because evad3rs is a big name in the jailbreaking community because it is the team that developed both the iOS 6 and iOS 7 jailbreaks.
Of course, the page also specifically notes that "Mention of third-party websites and products is for informational purposes only and constitutes neither an endorsement nor a recommendation." And, unlike other companies like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook, Apple does not offer bug bounties to those who uncover flaws, so it's hard to say that Apple is really happy with how this all works.
