Much to the joy of the iPhone enthusiasts all around the world, a new method of permanently unlocking the iPhone device without having to go through the jailbreaking process could be very much possible.
A few websites have reportedly claimed to offer this service, but with a very high price.
Cut Your Sim, one of the websites which claims to possess this magic trick said that the solution they provide for unlocking the device is permanent in nature, but at the same time the process is much different from the traditional jailbreaking process and won’t cost the users their warranties in case something goes wrong in the future.
Boy Genius Report (BGR), the tech website, conducted a firsthand test of the claims made by another such “magic-trick” holder - the GSMPhoneSources. They confirmed that the tests resulted in exactly what was being advertised by the unlocking company. BGR said in its report, "We have confirmed first-hand that the service does work flawlessly".
"Jailbreaking, or unauthorized hacks are NOT required,” Cut Your Sim said in a statement. “This does NOT affect your warranty status, because this is an official iPhone unlock".
On the other hand, Apple has not reacted so far about this latest exploitation of its devices. Also it is not confirmed whether they will try to put a halt on these services or not. But if it does, it’ll be really interesting to see how they go about achieving that goal.
