Latest unc0ver release can jailbreak the iPhone 12 series and iOS 14.3
Compared to Android, where rooting is a straightforward process on many devices, iOS users don’t have it that easy. The iOS ecosystem is very locked down, and Apple puts a lot of effort into making sure it stays that way. But there’s a way out of Apple’s walled garden, and it’s called jailbreaking. Unfortunately, jailbreaking is generally much more difficult than rooting is on Android because there’s no easy way to modify the OS without finding an exploit. Still, last year, we developers released unc0ver, a new iOS jailbreak that was a huge deal at the time because it used a zero-day exploit to jailbreak iPhones running the just-released iOS 13.5.
Now, there’s a new version of unc0ver in town, and it works from iOS 11.0 all the way up to iOS 14.3, meaning you can easily jailbreak even the newly released iPhone 12 series. In fact, as of publication, users have reported that they have managed to jailbreak the new devices easily. The new version of unc0ver is just as straightforward to install as the previous versions. All you have to do is download AltStore, sideload it to your iOS device, and then use it to install unc0ver, which will then effortlessly jailbreak your smartphone.
Jailbreaking opens the floodgates for iOS customizability, and it also allows you to add extra functionality to your iOS smartphone. Check out our initial coverage on the unc0ver project to know more about its developers, some nifty mods you can try out, and what exactly you can do when you remove the walls on iOS to unlock its full potential. Plenty of awesome and exciting mods arose thanks to jailbreaking last year, and we’re excited to see what will arise this time around. You can check out the unc0ver website to download it and learn how to install it.
