    I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 and am thinking if taking a deal where I can get an iPhone 5s for my iPhone plus $100.

    I'm concerned that I won't see a performance difference and that I won't like iOS7.

    Thoughts?

    I did the same as you are mentioning and regret doing it. Only big difference that I see so far from the jump is the id touch. Stay with your jailbreak till one comes out for iOS 7.

    Word is JB will be out within days.

    No performance difference? iOS 7 performance/regret?

    I would trade in a heartbeat. Jail breaking is pretty pointless nowadays unless u want pirated apps or quick reply.

    I like lock screen agenda (without pull down) and fast animation.

    I also use quick settings which iOS7 has now.

    I'd trade my 5 + $100 for a 5s in a heartbeat if it were still unlocked and in good condition.

    Sold my jailbroken 5 and upgraded. Theres only a few tweaks i miss like 5 row dock, motion, and notification center tweaks but i can live without them. Even without bite since i dont text THAT much.

    I had a iPhone 5 that I just sold for $420 and picked up a new 5S for $470 off craigslist. Turn down that deal I did not :cool:

    AT&T devices btw.

    I would do it; I traded from an iPhone 4 to a 4S in a similar fashion and didn't regret it at all

    i'd trade. plus, eventually the jailbreak will come out for ios 7, and you'll have a jailbroken 5s.

    That being said, I'd do the trade. The 5s is quite a bit faster than the 5.

    I personally wouldn't. Not much of a difference, besides touch ID, and ios7. I've got a 5 on 6.12, not jail broken, not yet anyway, and factory unlocked. But if you want an upgrade practically for free, with money in your pocket, then go for it.

    Where did you hear this from? I searched on Google and couldn't find anything that said a jailbreak was coming "out within days".
