iPhone Jailbreak: may be legal but voids warranty

Although the U.S. Copyright Office’s recent ruling allow consumers to Jailbreak their iPhones legally, it really doesn’t matter much Apple. The law may have provided you the legal right to hack your iPhone any way you want but Apple still has a compelling factor to help you refrain from your antics; it’s called voiding your warranty. While the USCO has now allowed you to hack your iPhone, the ruling does not afford you the protection in case your phone breaks down.

Cult of Mac received a reply from an Apple spokesperson stating:

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.

Jailbreaking also became legal on Monday, when the U.S. Copyright Office ruled several new exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), including one that brings iPhone jailbreaking into legality. Apple previously tried to include jailbreaking in the DMCA.
