iPhones and iPads are locked-down devices. You can only install apps Apple has approved, and you can’t tweak the underlying system like you could on a Windows, Mac, or Linux system. Jailbreaking is the act of escaping this figurative “jail.”

Android isn't too good either - the time I upgraded the Nexus 7 to KitKat, root was removed. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Yup, upgrading removes root. It's a pain, but at least the bootloader remains unlocked.
Google really doesn't like rooting, they begrugingly tolerate it in my opinion.
