Many on you are keen to maximize your use of Apple devices by installing the restricted apps, rather cracked apps, add more functionality and are unable to do so. Ever wondered to protect your Apps using your iPhone’s FaceID or TouchID? You always thought of an option to ignore a call but unfortunately you couldn’t because Apple doesn’t provide this features on stock iOS but you can get it after jailbreaking. In this articles, we’ll discuss methods to Jailbreak any iPhone running iOS 11.2-11.3.1
For installing any apps unavailable on the App store, you need to install them externally, i.e. through 3rd party by jailbreaking your device. While you can still install Apps using Cydia Impactor, after Jailbreak, you won’t be needing any assistance and can directly downloaded from Cydia. Now inorder to jailbreak you need to install simple software called Cydia on your apple device.
For those who do not know what is Cydia, let me throw some light on this topic. Cydia is nothing but a simple package modular app used to find and install apps on jailbroken apple devices such as iPhones, iPads and iPods. Many of the apps available on Cydia are those who could not pass through the approval process of the official App Store, usually because they ran afoul of the restrictions Apple puts upon apps in the official store. For example, any app that replicates the functionality already found on the device can be rejected, which is why Google Voice was famously rejected years ago. The programming language used for Cydia is Objective – C.
However a word of caution, Jailbreaking your device is though not illegal but Apple may want to cancel your warranty incase you get your device to service centre for repairs. Technically, in US, according to Digital Copyright Act, it is illegal to jailbreak your device. DevsJournal takes not credit and will not be responsible for any illegal action taken by you for your devices or whatsoever. This article and steps provided in it are just for education and information purpose.
Apple lists these potential issues with a jailbroken iPhone:
- Security vulnerabilities
- Shortened battery life
- Unreliable phone and data
- Disruption of services like iCloud, iMessage, and FaceTime
- Inability to install future software updates
