The most popular jailbreak of all-time reportedly won't work for Apple devices once iOS 6.1.3 is released according to an interview by Forbes with one of the evasiOn creators David Wang, who goes by the Twitter handle planetbeing.
iOS 6.1.3, which Apple gave to developers for testing last week, will prevent evasiOn from being installed on to Apple devices according to Forbes. EvasiOn has only been out for less than a month, and was downloaded by seven million people the first four days alone.

"If one of the vulnerabilities doesn't work, evasi0n doesn't work," Wang said to Forbes. "We could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but (Apple) will probably fix most if not all of the bugs we've used when 6.1.3 comes out."
The iOS 6.1.3 release may not come for another month or so, which means the tool will still work for now according to Wang.

It took five months for a successful jailbreak for the iPhone 5 to come out, which was finally accomplished by the hacking team known as the evad3rs.
Jailbreaking is not illegal like unlocking a device is, but Apple discourages the tool due to the potential problems users can go through after jailbreaking their device. The evad3rs team points out on their site for the jailbreak a number of issues that can occur during an after the process and how to avoid such issues like backing up your device, avoiding all iTunes and iOS related tasks until the jailbreak is complete, as well as other suggestions.
The main benefit of jailbreaking a device is to add additional apps through third-party stores and to essentially do whatever you want with your phone.
