With news that jailbreaking no longer violates the DMCA, Apple has naturally come out on the defensive. Cult Of Mac talked with Apple’s PR department who offered the following statement:
“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.”
On the issue of prosecution, Apple has only said that it hasn’t sued jailbreakers or software makers before. Obviously, Apple isn’t too happy with the development, and they wan’t to retain as much control over the phones as possible.
