Those at 7.x waiting for JB, maybe treat 7.0.4 as exercise in restraint. Won’t affect JB if you slip up, but test your ability to avoid it!
…but for those enjoying the 6.x JB, avoid 7.0.4 . There’s no going back (always worth saying that for sake of JB newbies)
The last update we received about the possibility of iOS 7 jailbreak was in early October when Planetbeing tweeted, "We're still working hard on the jailbreak. May have all the pieces at this point (but not certain yet)."
I’ve previously written that aside from the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C releases, on September 10th Apple may show us a completely new Apple TV, stuffed with new amazing features and whatever else. Well, today I must admit I was wrong. According to the latest AllThingsD report, there would be a software update for the existing TV box on Tuesday, but definitely not the new product presentation.
DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has issued a note predicting that the new iPad mini will not feature the Retina display many are expecting.
Apple is expected to refresh its iPad mini in the second half of the year. The new iPad mini will continue to use a 7.9-inch display with a 1024×768 resolution, but it will use the iOS 7operating system and an A6 processor, in a slimmer design than the current generation. Another iPad mini is also planned for production but not until early 2014. That device is expected to feature a QXGA (2048×1536) resolution display and the iOS 7 operating system.

Apple executives on several occasions during the just-finished WWDC keynote made note of both the fact that the new Mac Pro is being built in the United States and that the redesigned iOS 7software and other apps are being conceived, designed and implemented by its team of engineers in California.
In fact, Apple’s been proudly putting stickers on its products saying ‘Designed by Apple in California’ for years and has now even made a compelling new ad which focuses in its California design roots.
In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.
