The lastest iOS update – version 6.1.3 – is now available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This primarily fixes the security hole that was found in 6.1, one that allowed access to the phone module right from the locked screen without entering the correct passcode. The update also brings improvements to Maps for users in Japan. As for jailbreakers, you may want to stay away from 6.1.3 for the time being, as David Wang (one of the devs for the evasi0n and their untethered iOS 6.x jailbreak) told ForbesÂ several weeks ago thatÂ the 6.1.3 beta 2 update patched one of the bugs that the Jailbreak exploits. This means that 6.1.3 isn’t likely to work with the only untethered jailbreak solution at this time. For the rest of you though, you can grab the latest iOS update right from within Settings –> General –> Software Update or on your desktop via iTunes.
Apple has now released the iOS 4.0.2 update (3.2.2 for iPad) that plugs the security hole found by JailbreakMe, a web based tool that enables untethered jailbreak via Mobile Safari. If you’re worried about vulnerability, by all means install the update. If however, you rely on your Jailbreak for Facetime over 3G, flash viaÂ Frash and of course, unlocking, then it’d be wise toÂ hold off for the time being.[9to5mac via iphonedownloadblog]
