Apple is moving developers towards adopting the company’s own iOS 6 tracking technology and not their homegrown methods. One of these alternative techniques is cookie tracking and, according to a report in TechCrunch, Apple may be rejecting apps that use this method.
To understand how we got to the point where Apple is rejecting apps that use tracking cookies, we need to take a step back to iOS 5 and earlier. In previous versions of iOS, developers used a device’s UDID to track users. The UDID is a 40-character unique identifier assigned to each iOS device that developers used to track game progress, check subscription status and monitor ads. Apple phased out UDID tracking in iOS 5 and added support in iOS 6 for its own tracking methods, advertisingID and identifierForVendor.

Apple quickly released the iOS 6.1.2 update today to address a few lingering bugs in the OS, but luckily, the jailbreak wasn’t patched.
However, the Evad3rs team worked around the clock to update the Evasi0n desktop tools and we are now glad to say that iOS 6.1.2 can be jailbroken fully untethered using the latest version of Evasi0n, which is v1.4.
All iOS devices that are able to run iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 are supported, including the 5th-gen iPhone. The only exception is the recently released Apple TV 3, which cannot be jailbroken at the moment.

iOS 6.1 has been a curious update. It offers a minor handful of API upgrades for developers but otherwise has been a way for Apple to tweak internals. First appearing November 1st, the beta has had occasional updates, most recently moving to the 4th beta in December, before its final release to the public.
Interestingly, the few API upgrades centered around Apple’s troubled Maps API.
In the never-ending global legal battle between Apple and Samsung, the Korean electronics firm has been rebuffed by Apple in an attempt to see the source code for iOS 6.
According to The Korea Times, Samsung argues that unless they have access to the source code, they won’t know if iOS 6 infringes on its technology patents. Apple’s legal representatives apparently called the demand “insane,” with a Seoul Central District Court representative recalling an Apple lawyer as saying “It doesn’t make any sense. Samsung is saying that we should give up protecting our most important data.”
