Apple iTunes Store no longer censoring word 'jailbreak'

Friday, 18 May 2012

Apple iTunes Store no longer censoring word 'jailbreak'Earlier today, Apple began censoring the word "jailbreak" in any content seen in the iTunes Store.

For example, the Thin Lizzy song "Jailbreak" was censored to read "J*******k," which is complete nonsense. Other artists got the same treatment, as well.

The issue has since been rectified.

Jailbreaking of course also references that processing of rooting an iOS device to allow custom software and the Cydia store of apps. The store rivals the official iOS App Store, and includes free and paid apps, themes and more.

The process of jailbreaking is not illegal, but doing so will void your Apple warranty.
