Cupertino, Calif. – Apple (NASD: AAPL) has responded to the U.S.
Copyright Office’s ruling that consumers aren’t violating the law when they
"jailbreak" their iPhones by noting that the act will still void
their warranties, Cult of Mac reported. "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," the company told
Cult of Mac in a statement.
"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."
The Copyright Office said yesterday that jailbreaking an iPhone does not violate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Poll: Do you agree with the government ruling to
allow "jailbreaking" for iPhones?
