Earlier today we told you that changes to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), now make it legal to jailbreak your Apple iPhone or any mobile phone for that matter as well as unlock them from your mobile carrier.
The guys over at Cult of Mac have contacted Apple regarding the changes, and received the following response from an Apple spokesperson.
‘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.’
So whilst it is now legal for you to jailbreak or unlock your iPhone, doing so may void your Apple warranty on your iPhone, much as it did before it became legal.
