While the public version of iOS 7 has still not gone public, Apple is already starting work on the next firmwares iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2, and 7.1. The data is not completely conclusive, and is tracked using user agent data from website traffic generated from cities around Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino. This method has been used numerous times in the past to tell when we were on the edge of a new fimware update. iOS 7 is a complete change and will probably require many new updates to fix bugs along the way.
These updates will surely interfere with the jailbreak scene as they pose a problem to any upcoming iOS 7 jailbreak. That being said if a jailbreak is released for 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2 or 7.1 Apple will probably be quick to patch it in the following weeks. While we don’t expect a new jailbreak anytime really close to now, we will probably see one like that of Evasi0n which was released at the .1 release a few months after the next big OS leap of last year. Jailbreaks are hard to predict as new exploits can be used quickly or take forever to form a final product. One thing is for sure, and that is that Apple has beefed up their security over the last few years and hacking the new software will be nowhere as easy as it used to be.
