It looks like Apple is recruiting iOS hackers to make improvements to iOS. Winocm, an important member of the jailbreak community, today announced on his Twitter account that he will be working for Apple starting later this year. Winocm is an expert reverse engineering Apple’s iOS. He most recent work for the jailbreak community was the jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5.
I figured now is the right time to say this, I will be working at Apple starting later this year.

It’s still unknown what the hacker will be working on at Apple, but it is likely that he will be an intern. Apple on 2011 also hired iOS hacker Comex as an intern. Since then, Comex has not worked on any iOS jailbreak hacks, so it is likely that we will never see an iOS jailbreak from winocm again.
