Very bold statement for @p0sixninja, considering there isn't even a beta of iOS 7 yet.

Unless the man has people on the inside.
I don't think he was implying that he can jailbreak iOS 7 before seeing it. I think he just meant he'd save the current, unused exploits for the next big firmware. This is nothing out of the ordinary; it's the way it's always been and it usually works. Apple typically doesn't find the exploits the devs save for the future usage before they actually use them.

Unfortunately, this is true. I fear that Apple may have fallen too far behind on the power curve this time. iOS 7 had better be an absolutely amazing update.
Indeed. iOS in essense hasn't changed, just bits have been added to it. It's refined and works well, but I want what Android has to offer and I really it want it now, not in 18 months time.

iOS 7 is the big one for me, it's taken seven generations of an operating system which desperately needs an overhaul. If it doesn't make me smile when I see it I'll definitely migrate to Android.

I don't blame John. Even I feel the call to test a new Android phone soon. How long can I keep chasing jailbreaks that may or may not appear? It gets tiresome after a while. Why can't I get simple access to my most-used settings in the notification center? Really, Apple? Will it confuse the average user that much if this is implemented?

I think we'll have settings toggles in Notification Center with iOS 7. I can feel it. It's time. We're ready for them and we won't be confused. It will look a lot like this:

I think you're probably right, though a lot of people probably thought the same about iOS 5 and iOS 6. And what about replying to texts within apps? The simple things?

I couldn't care less about ordering from Fandango within Siri or other amazing upgrades like that. Okay, I borrowed the Fandango gripe from Mindi, but it's also a valid one for me.

And damn it, I want my built-in IR blaster! It's no substitute for an integrated toothpaste dispenser, but it'll do!

Chasing the Jailbreaks is what made me try the Nexus 4. I wanted a phone that I could customize without rooting/jailbreaking and would also get timely OS upgrades. Lately on the iOS front, jailbreaks seem to take long to come by and don't last for that long. So if you do jailbreak, your kinda stuck at the os version you are on until a new jailbreak is out, which is ok, as long as you do not have to restore for any reason. As John and Naps alluded to, I just got tired of the game....
