Apple Has Disabled Jailbreak Detection API From iOS

Apple has decided to disabled a jailbreak detection API from iOS. This feature was firstly brought and introduced by the company as the part of iOS 4.0 when they launched the iOS firmware six months ago, or precisely on June this year.
Jailbreak Detection API

The name of the API explains its self, it's used by third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) like AirWatch to scan whether the device is jailbreaken or not.

For example with this API, the MDM vendors can create OS checker to detect jailbreak, analogous to those performed by an anti-virus application on a PC, to discover if a jailbreak had occurred.
