Despite Apple’s best efforts to keep developers from cracking its latest version of iOS, the Checkra1n team has managed to find an exploit that allows them to jailbreak iOS 13.3. The tool uses the checkm8 exploit and it can unlock devices that range from iPhone 5 to the latest iPhone XS Max Pro. The jailbreak tool that is available to download by the public sports the 0.9.7 beta version number and today we are going to present everything there is to know about it. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Checkra1n Jailbreak for iOS 13.3
First off, we want to give praise to the folks at Checkra1n. They are the only developers to release a jailbreak tool that is compatible with Apple’s latest operating system and to make things even better, the jailbreak tool is stable. This is all possible to the aforementioned checkm8 exploit that impacts devices from iPhone 4S to iPhone X. This means that even though Apple may not release the upcoming iOS 14 or iOS 15 for older devices, the Checkra1n jailbreak tool will make the update possible.
Bug Fixes in the Latest Update
The latest version of the Checkra1n jailbreak for iOS 13.3 was released earlier today and it introduces two major bug fixes. The first bug fix is taking care of an issue that prevented the GUI from detecting changes in device modes. Fortunately, the bug has been squashed. The second major bug fixes that the new update introduces is fixing another GUI issue that caused it to hang when jailbreaking certain iPad models.
