It’s been a long time since I wrote an article about jailbreaking, but this publication is big. A new 0-day @ Pwn20wnd kernel vulnerability could jailbreak all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices that can run iOS 13.5.
In other words, this means that any modern iOS device that is available to you today can have a jailbreak. It wasn’t long ago that some thought jailbreaking was dead, but this release proves otherwise.
Check out our short handy video tutorial, in which I show how easy it is to jailbreak a device using the Unc0ver jailbreak tool.
Jailbreaking is not recommended by Apple and can pose security risks. Do it at your own risk.

Although I don’t plan to jailbreak my daily driver, I have to admit that I’m missing some improvements and issues. Handy tools like Activator, a utility that allows you to control your iPhone in a way that is not possible with standard iOS.
And then there is Ayeris, a wonderful theme that gives the app icons on the home screen a new coat of paint. Speaking of Ayeris: Designer Surenix is giving away several copies to 9to5Mac readers and viewers. First come first serve:
But what I really notice about this jailbreak is how fast everything is once you’ve installed Cydia. Cydia is very fast on the iPhone 11 Pro, which I would have liked to have had in 2011.
At this point, I am still undecided whether I will keep this jailbreak on my iPhone. Admittedly, jailbreaking is not as attractive to me as it used to be since all improvements to iOS have been made over the years.
