Apple Since interesting news that I'm actually knowledgeable about is still a little hard to come by, I have to work a little harder. This is something interesting to discuss: John Gruber, rather famous Apple blogger, is now arguing that Apple is in fact not fighting the jailbreaking community. Wait, what?

Apple could take more technical measures to discourage jailbreaking.
They don't push upgrades to devices. They allow continued use of the App Store and push notifications with older (vulnerable) OS versions and on jailbroken devices. iTunes continues to sync with devices not running the latest available firmware..


Exactly, but as someone said in another comment - people often cherry-pick facts to support their argument so in this article these wouldn't even be a blip on the radar...

And there are still less "insecure" ways to jailbreak your iPhone.
The PDF exploit was a big hole in the security record that Apple try to keep as clean as possible, and was easily fixable too (update the freetype rendering library).
