    Hello guys,

    I've missed the timeframe for buying a new iPhone 5 which I can definitely jailbreak.

    So, if I'm going to buy one now, is there a way to see which iOS is preinstalled?

    AND

    Am I able to stay with the preinstalled iOS or do I have to upgrade once I've booted the device?

    Regards
    Milan :)

    You are fine. The only way to update is in the settings or in itunes.

    Okay, thanks.

    Now I need to know which iOS is preinstalled. I want to have at least 6.1.

    chipmunk.nl says this:
    Production year: 2013
    Production week: 7 (February)

    How do I find out which iOS it has?

    /edit: iOS 6.1 release was at 28. January...

    The only way you can see the current version is through settings:

    Settings > General > About > Version

    The Evasi0n jailbreak is compatible with iOS:
    6.0
    6.0.1
    6.0.2
    6.1
    6.1.1
    6.1.2

    The iPhone 5 comes pre-installed with iOS 6.0.1 or 6.1.

    What that build date it is probably 6.1 but not 6.1.3.
    So that one will be jailbreakable and you can stay on 6.1

    Hire a prognosticator to accompany you to the store or just return the phone during the return period if it can't be jailbroken.
