Apple Releases iOS 6.1.3 With Passcode Bug Fix and Japanese Maps Enhancements, Kills Evasi0n Jailbreak

Apple today released iOS 6.1.3 to the public, delivering several minor enhancements including a fix for a passcode security bug.
This update contains improvements and other bug fixes including:

- Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the passcode and access the Phone app
- Improvements to Maps in Japan
Apple last week quietly delivered some server-side improvements to Maps for Japanese users, but it appears that iOS 6.1.3 also builds in some updates for these users.

iOS 6.1.3 began life as iOS 6.1.1 in early February, but was re-labeled as iOS 6.1.3 as Apple rushed out a pair of emergency bug fixes.

iOS 6.1.3, which arrives as Build 10B329, also reportedly addresses at least one of the security holes used by the evasi0n jailbreak tool, so users interested in jailbreaking their devices will undoubtedly want to hold off on upgrading until more information surfaces.

Too bad I can't and I won't update! :D

Is it because you have an Android phone and Verizon must approve of the update like 3 months later?

Jailbreaking is a reason to NOT upgrade to this. Bring on useful features and maybe I won't have to JB Apple

Ahh finally the fix to remove choice from my device and lock me securely back into apples airtight eco system that i have been waiting for ... :rolleyes:

Think ill stick with the build i have + Cydia until apple add a feature to the updates instead of just releasing updates that close jailbreaks.

Apple seems to have gone from innovating, to evolving, to stagnating, to normal corporate bullcrap in record time since SJ passed.

...or a fix to patch security exploits that could harm users if used maliciously. The world doesn't revolve around you contrary to what you may think.
