Jailbreak for All iOS 13.5 Devices Close to Release, Claim Hackers

The team behind the "unc0ver" jailbreaking tool for iOS has announced an upcoming version of its software that can patch "every signed iOS version on every device" using a zero-day kernel vulnerability by Pwn20wnd, a renowned iOS hacker.

If the claims are true, that would mean Apple's latest flagship devices like the iPhone 11, iPhone SE, and 2020 iPad Pro can be jailbroken, even if they're running iOS 13.5, which was released only yesterday.

This would be a significant development in the jailbreaking community, second only to last year's surprise announcement of "checkm8," an exploit found on nearly every chip made by Apple, which paved the way for a permanent, non-patchable jailbreak on hundreds of millions of affected iOS devices.

"Checkm8" was the first publicly available boot room exploit for iOS devices since the iPhone 4 in 2010.


The unc0ver team didn't say when the updated tool would be released, but final stability tests are currently being performed, according to their website.

"Checkra1n," another jailbreaking tool made by the same security researcher responsible for the "checkm8" exploit, is presently the only way to unlock devices up to the ‌iPhone‌ 8 and ‌iPhone‌ X, which use Apple's A11 Bionic chip.

Haven't jailbroken mine in years, what's the point nowadays, are there still features you really need by compromising the security on your device.

Stability was always an issue on the iPhones I had it on, so just after a short while I went back to stock iOS.

I love these posts and the inevitable “why even jailbreak these days”. You can turbocharge your iPhone including quick animations, even faster opening of apps, and better general performance on the home screen. My personal favorite is the ability to downgrade AppStore apps, no YouTube ads, changing the app splash screen to black, no silly swipe up to unlock on Face ID phones, and battery percent instead of an icon at all times. And up until iOS13 it was the only way to get dark mode, unobtrusive volume hud, and better control center functionality. You can thank the jailbreak scene for the improvements Apple makes painfully slowly via each yearly iOS iteration. The truth is a lot of the innovation Apple claims as their own happens by developers working behind the scenes on a jailbreak.

I wonder if people are ever going to realize how ridiculous their 13375p34k handles are.

All these ppl hating on jailbreaks do not realize Apple practically stole 90% of its "new" features from jailbreaking the past 8 years or so.

I was an avid jail breaker back in the day but now what really is the point

There are still tons of tweaks and useful changes that Apple doesn't provide... I'll give you a few of my favorites:

multitasking on iPhone XS Max - 2 apps on the screen at once

floating dock like the iPad where you can add more apps

choosing default apps for mail, internet, etc...

always on display on OLED phones

ability to watch videos and use almost all apps on carplay

ability to place icons anywhere on the home screen and change their sizes

change fonts, themes to spruce things up

ability to add widgets on the home screen and lock screen

that's just to name a few, there are tons more. and furthermore Apple has copied a bunch of tweaks from the jailbreak community so regular iOS users benefit.
