I love the way that Apple phrases this…
Apple ended its silence on unlocking the iPhone via third-party hacks with a warning Monday that unlocked iPhones may become inoperable.
“Apple has discovered that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed,” the company said in a statement.
In other words: “We’re going to put something in our next software update that will SURE TEACH YOU!”
Come on, Steve Jobs. Just say it! If you hack your iPhone, Apple is going to brick the thing. It’s that simple. It’s not going to be an accident.
