    No, that is an A5 device. It will never have a tethered jailbreak.

    So there will never be a jailbreak, tethered or untethered, for iOS 6.1.3?

    What is the latest software I could get a jb for on the iPhone 4S?

    There may be an untethered one. The latest jailbreak for the 4S is 6.1.2. But if you are not already running iOS 6.1.2, you cannot go to it, only 7.0.

    Ok. If I go get a replacement (refurb) at an Apple store under Apple Care +, is there a good chance it will have 6.1.2 or not?

    There's almost no chance as Apple release 6.1.3 only a few weeks after 6.1.2 came out.

    Damn. Why aren't they writing a jailbreak for 6.1.3, or are they?

    They don't want to waste an exploit on it. There may be a 6.1.3 jailbreak, but it may not happen until iOS 7 is jailbroken.

    What about recent news that there is a 6.1.3/4 untethered A5 jailbreak?

    There is but not releasable at this time and uncertain if it can be released at all.

    Oh ok. So I shouldn't swap out my 4S for a replacement at Apple store if I wanna stay jailbroken?

    That kinda sucks. I was hoping to get a new one, as my screen is scratched and sleep button broken and my battery is weak.

    Would the replacement have had a fresh and significantly better battery than my 2 yr old 4S?

    The replacement would likely be a refurbished or re-manufactured unit. It's battery could be slightly used or new.

    Ok cool. Last but not least, where do you recommend getting a replacement LCD from?

    Could be dust or lint trapped around the button. I'd try to fix the current one before replacing it. But check iFixIt for that part as well.

    You could also look for yourself or follow the devs.

    I just read a news article saying a jailbreak has been recently released for iOS 6.1.3 on the 4S. Any way you could verify if this is true?

    Ditto on the above.
