So what about changes brought about in iOS 7.1 beta 5?

So far new natural-sounding Siri voices for English (Australia), English (United Kingdom), Japanese, and Chinese (Mandarin – China) have been reported and even redesigned Caps Lock and Shift keys (via MacRumors).

Apple also renamed the option to disable the parallax effect in wallpapers as “Perspective Zoom” instead of “Motion.”

On the Jailbreaking front there is some more disappointing news. According to hacker iH8Sn0w Apple has patched a vulnerability in chown that was used by Evasi0n7 to gain access to a filesystem path that is otherwise locked down.

As such it is safe to say that it will be back to the drawing board for the iOS 7.1 Jailbreak. In fact we may not see another untethered Jailbreak released until iOS 8.
