Since the first iPhone launch back in 2007, Apple focused on device privacy over any other feature. However, with the introduction of “Jailbreak Tweaks”, developers have been able to bend some system restrictions enabled by Apple. Now, the recently released “jailbreak” by a team of hackers allows users to unlock any iPhone.
The Cupertino-based tech giant bans iOS devices to protect users from any security vulnerabilities. However, in recent years, we have seen iPhones weakening in terms of security. And with the many developers create the “Jailbreak Tweaks” , iOS devices become a lot more vulnerable than they usually could be.
Now, the recent Jailbreak Twin, created by the Unlevered team, puts all iPhones running on iOS 11 above and is at risk because it can unlock any iPhone, even the latest iOS 13.5 Also running on firmware.
The details of the “escape” remain unknown until now. Therefore, we do not know what vulnerabilities the hackers targeted to create this tweak.
What we do know, however, is that this tweak is not here, just as any other “jailbreak” has a tweak that affects the device’s security.
Whenever developer back up with new “jailbreaks” update that affect all iPhones, Apple company quickly releases a new update patches for the vulnerability and disables the tweak.
So, all iPhones after Apple’s release of the new firmware update don’t get affected. After rigorous testing, the company recently released iOS 13.5 to the public. However, now iOS 13.5.1 may be coming soon to patch this vulnerability.
Jailbreak Tweaks IOS
Jailbreaking is the process by which Apple’s operating system is modified to remove restrictions and provide greater user control over the device. These modifications usually allow unsigned code to run, in reading and writing to the root framework, which are usually stopped by Apple. Increased privileges allow customization and unfit app installations that are not available to users with stock devices. Jailbreaking is the most popular, and most commonly associated with Apple’s mobile operating system iOS, although it is also present on tvOS and watchOS.
