While Apple may have had its differences with "jainbreakers" in the past, the company has actually given some of them some long overdue credit with the launch of iOS 7.1. During yesterdays launch of iOS 7.1, Apple listed out all of the security fixes that have been applied to the update and with the listings, recognized Evasi0n jailbreak for its contributions to finding four security flaws in the operating system.
Citing those who point out potentially dangerous flaws in software is a long standing tradition and we are glad to see that Apple is adhering to that tradition even though the flaws were pointed out by a group who teaches users how to hack their devices for more control. Apple also mentioned a student from Italy, a Google engineer, a security consultant, and even a researcher for helping make iOS 7.1 even safer. With the holes now patched, we wonder how long it will take for new ones to arise in iOS 7.1.
