    I intend on selling my iPhone 5. Should I hold off on upgrading to iOS 7 just in case someone is looking to jailbreak an iPhone?

    My guess is that the type of people that will jailbreak it will have no problem getting iOS 6 back on it.

    I think it depends on what version of iOS 6 you are on.

    If you are on 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 then there isn't a jailbreak for those iOS versions so I wouldn't worry to much. Anything earlier though and I wouldn't update for resale purposes.
