Unless you tell them, or bring jailbroken device for service they won't. If you ever need your device serviced, restore it before.

A lot of folks have this conception that if they jailbreak their phones, Apple and their service provider will find out and cut them out of their warranty.

I always chuckle a little on the inside of this because it only takes a little bit of research to find out everything you need to know about jailbreaking and the factors that lead into it.

Jailbreaking first off is by far the most beneficial thing you can do to your device. If you jailbreak and something goes wrong, don't worry! All you have to do is backup your device via iTunes and then give it a restore. Everything will be saved and you will not be jailbroken any further. A jailbreak is NEVER permanent. It's only a temporary modification to your device to allow you to change the behaviour of the iOS system.

If you're smart about it, you should never ever have to bring your iDevice in because of a software glitch. A software glitch is usually the cause of 2 reasons. The 1st reason being, the user has downloaded modifications without the knowledge of what it was they were downloading and bugged out their device. The 2nd being, it's genuinely a software glitch due to malfunctioning piece of hardware located in the device. If it is a hardware issue causing the software to not work correctly, you should back up your device and get a new one sent to you by mail so you can send the old one back. Apple/Service Provider can have a new device sent to you in the matter of a few days.

Once you get your new device, you can restore from backup and you have everything back in place the way it was on your original device.

At this point, if you choose to jailbreak your device, you may do so without having to worry about voiding out your warranty. Once again, the warranty is only in a temporary state of void in which you can bring back entirely all through a simple restore via iTunes.
