    Why hackers should NOT release iOS 6.1 JB tomorrow

    Like a complete moron, I upgraded my iPad to iOS 6.1 without reading about potential problems. Like LOTS of people are complaining about, iOS 6.1 on my iPad 4th gen is eating my battery life for breakfast. I'm sure Apple did this on purpose and here is how it will play out:

    ) Apple knows iOS 6.1 can be jailbroken from reading forums and tweets before it's released but they don't know how the hackers are going to do it. So they let their vulnerable iOS 6.1 out the door with a special little "coding error" in the form of horrible battery drain.

    ) Lots of people upgrade their iDevices to iOS 6.1

    ) JB for iOS 6.1 is released to the general public

    ) Apple announces that they discovered the battery drain problem and will soon release iOS 6.1.1 to address it

    ) Current iOS 6.1 JB is rendered useless with 6.1.1. If people want their normal battery life back, they have to upgrade. (Not a concern to people who don't JB as they'll gladly upgrade to iOS 6.1.1)........ Jailbreaking community can suck it......regard, Apple Devs.

    I say the hackers should hold off because Apple will have to release a patch to correct the problem. We've waited this long, we can wait a little more. Man, I'm so pissed I upgraded last night before doing some research.

    I think that the chances that Apple would deliberately release a defective version of iOS for the purpose of foiling a jailbreak to be as close to 0 as makes no difference.

    This much is true.

    Apple only cares about jail broken devices because it seems these as a security risk. That's all. They will plug each hole as its discovered, however they have no need to play games to do so.

    Ya, you could have waited on 6.0.x version. Personal Experience, did a 5.1.1 to iOS 6 upgrade blindly!

    Yeaaahhh, no. If 6.1 is really as bugged as you say, and it "drains battery", then tons upon tons of people would be pissed off at Apple for screwing up yet again, and possibly drop support for them. If Apple truly knew about the hack, they wouldn't risk angering their customers just to try and release a "6.1.1" to discretely patch the hack.

    I have not seen any battery drain on my iPad 4. In fact I think it seems to drain at a slower rate. I've been wanting to do a full drain as it has been a while,and it is taking a very long time to drain. I think the theory is more conspiracy than and fact.
