A new device will jailbreak iOS 13.5, the recently launched variant of Apple’s mobile operating system through hacker community Unc0ver, Wired announced.
According to Wired, the community claims the jailbreak, which runs on iOS 11 and higher, is based on a zero-day flaw, does not sap the battery life of a computer, and does not hinder the usage of Apple apps or compromise protections for the iOS sandbox.
Unc0ver ‘s lead developer told Wired the jailbreak introduces exceptions to current laws, which “enables you to access new jailbreak files which file system sections that don’t include user details.” The jailbreak tool isn’t open source, so the community didn’t specify what bug it used to create the device in iOS.
Jailbreaking gives a user greater control over the OS of a device , allowing for customization and installation of apps that would otherwise be restricted by Apple. It may also be used by prospective attackers to compromise the security of a device.
