iOS 6 has been jailbroken already, for iPhone 4

That didn't take long. iPhone Dev Team has just announced the first official RedSn0w jailbreak for iOS 6. It currently only works with A4 based devices such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and fourth generation iPod Touches. If you own an iPad 1, you're out of luck since it was left out of this OS upgrade. That's Apple's legendary planned obsolescence for you. It's worth noting that due to a hardware flaw, A4 based devices are fairly easy for hackers to jailbreak.

This is a tethered jailbreak and does not work with newer A5 and A6 based iDevices. So if you own one, you might want to hold off upgrading to iOS 6 for now. Redmond Pie is also advising people who use unlockers to avoid this jailbreak as well, as it will break that function.
