What is the difference between iPhone Unlock vs Jailbreak?

First let’s figure out what each of them do.

What is iPhone Jailbreak?

Jailbreaking is a proceedure of modifying your iPhone’s firmware to allow codes to run and access files that Apple blocked by default. Jailbreaking installs an application to you iPhone called Cydia or Icy, which then allows you to use 3rd-party apps that aren’t available in Applet Store.

Is Jailbreaking allowed by Apple?

Somewhat. Although its legallity is unclear due to free of use law, most owners of iPhone think that since they paid hundreds of dollars for their device and basically owns it, then they have the single authority to do what ever they want to their iPhone.

However, Apple thinks jailbreaking is a violation of their copyright. One reliable source from a reputable blogging network had and interview with a copyright attorney who claims Apple has no way of winning a case against the jailbreakers. Still today, there yet to be any leagal claims against jailbreakerd. Frankly, Apple has better things to do than sue you for a measly device they upgrade every few months.
