The iPhone 7 is already jailbroken, exploit kept private
posted by Luis D. / Sep 21, 2016, 9:15 AM
Just a few days after it landed on the market, it appears the iPhone 7 has been successfully jailbroken by Luca Tedesco, a hacker, developer, security researcher, and all-around tech person. On his Twitter page, he posted a photo of an iPhone 7 running iOS 10 with the Cydia store installed. The image shows an "iPhone 9,3" (the matte black iPhone 7) running iOS 10.0.1 with Cydia 1.1.26 installed.
For better or worse, the Italian developer will most probably keep the jailbreak and his method of achieving it for personal use, which means the developer community will have to wait a little longer before the exploit has been made public. Luca has been involved in jailbreaking the iPhone 7 as part of his personal research into mobile security.
Still, now that a jailbreak has been achieved, it won't be long before other hacking enthusiasts 'pwn' the iPhone 7 and release a working exploit. Jailbreaking lets users run software not installed from App Store on iOS devices and developers can experiment with deeper access to the device's hardware, creating bespoke tweaks and applications much in the same way as Android developers do with rooted devices.

Well, that was fast. Hasn't even been more than a week. (I mean since the iPhone has become available)

Old news. PA slow to report again. iOS10 was jailbroken by notorious Tedesco almost a month ago.

Though I agree with you, but let me also say that Closed Source has it's pros too. So, it depends on what a user valours the most in a mobile OS. iOS being"sucky" is subjective, but I personally agree with your point.

Closed system is good for like a niche or limited market product (although the iPhone seems to be headed that way). The iOS products are mass market and therefore, would benefit more by being open source.

Why announce it if it's a private venture?

Wow! On iOS 10 too? Amazing. While waiting at T to get replacement Note 7's, I got to play with both the Glossy Black 7/7+. The 7+ physically is much nice to look at, especially with the higher resolution. The 750P on the 7 is just tacky looking. But the 7+ looks cool. I snapped a couple picture with both cameras and they looked just like what I've seen on reviews. But I got to do a very nice hands-on with the 2nd lens. I noticed I got a better photo, when I simply just moved closer to the object vs using the telephoto lens. I think Apple should have used the 2 of the same main cameras for the rear, and have them work together to bring up to 4x zooming or more. Because the main camera took a better photo when I just used the software zoom vs using the telephoto lens. That glossy black looks very shiny on the internet, but in person it doesn't look that shiny. It also looks and feels like plastic. I know the back is suppose to be painted and chemically treated metal, but it feels just like the iPhone 5C. I tapped on it with my knuckle and for the first time I recall, it sounded solid and filled in vs that hollow sound the previous models had. On the black finish you can't even see the antenna line, except at certain angles. It looks pretty cool though. But I would have loved to see a new design. When they release the iPhone 8 with the dual curved display and if its at 1440p; I could just be in the market to get one to use on the go when I dont want to bring my iPad.
