Some impressive numbers come our way from this tweet by iOS security researcher @pod2g – 14,051,500 Apple devices running iOS 6 have now been jailbroken.
Furthermore, the Cydia jailbreak app is now seeing roughly 23 million monthly unique users (this statistic ignores iOS versions).
As a fraction of the whole, however, this statistic becomes less remarkable.
Given that Apple recently sold its 500 millionth iOS device, this means slightly fewer than 5% of iOS devices are operating outside of Apple's boundaries. However, t he first day that the iOS 6 jailbreak was available, over 270,000 people downloaded it. This seems to send a clear message that people want to do more with their iPhones than Apple is willing to allow.
