iOS fans who love the freedom that jailbreak tools offer them should be pleased to find out that the new checkra1n jailbreak for iOS has now been updated to support iOS 13.2.3. This is great news, especially since iOS 13.2.3 proved to be one of Apple’s most difficult operating system updates to crack. To make things even better, the new jailbreak tool from checkra1n now supports the following devices: iPad Pro 1st generation, iPad Air 2 and the highly popular iPad 5.

Fortunately, the new 0.9.6 beta release introduces lots of bugfixes and new features. In fact, let’s go ahead and check out the patch notes for the new update so that all jailbreak fans can get a good idea of what’s coming their way.
