Future Iphone Firmware Updates - What will apple do?
Has any1 ever thought that apple anticipated the hacking and the unlocking and therefore withheld certain viable software features? Closing holes and fixing exploits requires lots of testing and creative thinking, and who better to do the hard yards then an eager hacking community. Maybe, Apple is holding back on a few semi-vital updates, like MMS, Flash, Java, Video recording, over the air calendar syncing, authentic third party apps etc, so they can use initial updates to expose weaknesses in the firmware, patch them and finally come up with a solid, "unpenetrable" firmware that includes these features. How else would apple entice users to upgrade to a firmware that is truly locked?
This theory seems buried by the prospect of unlocked phones in France, but maybe the 250,000 people that already use an unlocked phone may suffer from this sort of action.
