Apple puts iPhone jailbreakers in crosshairs
Apple has applied for a patent covering various methods for identifying and disabling unauthorised use — including jailbreaking and other hacks — of electronic devices, such as its popular iPhone and iPad products.
Although the US government has legally authorised the jailbreaking (i.e. running code that gives users access to extensions and themes that Apple has not approved, as well as use carriers that are not supported by Apple) of iPhones and other electronic devices for “educational purposes”, it seems that Apple is determined to gain further control over said devices.
