Jailbreaking iPhones used to be a popular method in the early years of iOS. Unfortunately, Apple started paying more attention to the process, and the iOS jailbreaking scene was significantly affected.
However, that might change, because iOS 13.5 was successfully jailbroken. That means that mods and customizations can be installed on newer Apple smartphones and tablets.
What Is Jailbreaking?
Jailbreaking is a procedure that unbound iPhones from the restrictions imposed by iOS.
Such restrictions include the incapability of downloading non-App Store apps, installing mods, using various themes, widgets, and others. However, the increased freedom also adds a new layer of risk.
Though the process is safer than it used to be, you can still be affected by malware that would otherwise be affected by the App Store.
Here are the steps you have to follow if you want to jailbreak your iPhone:
First of all, make sure you have an iPhone or iPad running iOS 13.5 or iPadOS 13.5, a lightning USB cable to connect them, and a Mac or MacBook.
Navigate to altstore.io and download AltServer for Mac. After the download finishes, follow the instructions that are provided.
Open your device’s built-in Mail app and enable the plugin by tapping Preferences -> Manage Plug-ins.
Then, plug in your iPhone or iPad and verify that you have all the required permissions with File Explorer or iTunes.
Then you will use AltServer’s menu to install a designated app on your device.
After the process is finished, open AltStore on your device.
If everything is ok, Launch Safari and go to unc0ver.dev Tap Open in Alt Store -> Open.
You will have to input your Apple ID and password. Wait for the tool to download.
Tap 7 Days to start installing the jailbreak tool.
From your device’s home screen, open Unc0ver and then press on Jailbreak.
The jailbreaking process will now go on by itself.
The device will reboot.
After that, launch Unc0ver for a final time and tap Jailbreak again.
After that finishes, your device is fully jailbroken!
