This article aims to demonstrate how to Jailbreak iPhone 11 Series, iPhone XS, iPhone XR Step By Step as easily as possible.
World’s first iOS 13 – iOS 13.3 jailbreak for A12-A13 Bionic devices has been released by the Unc0ver team.
Before we get started let’s understand what jailbreaking exactly is and it’s advantages and disadvantages
What Is Jailbreak?
The jailbreak is the generic term that has been put to the methods that exist to bypass the security measures imposed by Apple on your iOS system and to be able to install, modify and change anything on the system.
Different developers and teams have spent countless hours poring over Apple’s software code to see where they could sneak in.
Sometimes it is easier and others it has cost a couple of versions, but finally there has always been a simple method to install as many applications as you want on the iPhone without having to stick only to the ones in the App Store.
Is Jailbreak Dangerous?
No, it isn’t, at least for the integrity of the device and its systems.
However, modifying Apple software may result in the loss of the device warranty.
Advantages Of Jailbreak
1. Access to new applications and system modifications
This is the main reason why one should Jailbreak their iPhone.
Apple does not allow us to download thousands and thousands of applications that are useful and that can be downloaded through Cydia .
Cydia is another application store, like the Apple Store, but from here you can download the applications not allowed by Apple.
In addition, with Cydia, we will find system modifications, small improvements that will allow us to enjoy our iPhone more and fully customise it.
2. Eliminate limits imposed by Apple
Without Jailbreak it would be impossible to watch high resolution videos away from home or make Facetime calls with 3G networks in operating systems prior to iOS 7.
Apple does not allow it, however if you do the Jailbreak there are no limits to prevent you from doing so.
3. Data protection
With Cydia you can find applications (not available in the App Store) that can be very useful for data protection such as app locks.
Note – Be careful with Cydia because it is an open door through which infectious files can enter your iPhone.
What is Checkra1n and Unc0ver?
Checkra1n was the first iOS 13 jailbreak tool for the public, however, it only supports jailbreaking iPhone X and older generations of iPhones.
If you want to jailbreak an iPhone XS, iPhone XR, or iPhone 11/Pro running iOS 13 – iOS 13.3, then you have to follow the steps mentioned below.
If you have earlier used “uncOver” to jailbreak your iPhone, then you will be familiar with the steps in this guide.
Even though a new iOS has been released, the steps to jailbreak an iPhone using Unc0ver is quite similar to the previous guidebook.
However, we must bring it to your notice, since this is the first release of Unc0ver which gives assistance to jailbreaking iOS 13 – iOS 13.3, it has a number of bugs.
So, if you wish to, then you can wait until the Unc0ver team gets around to releasing a bug-fixing update to the tool.
Unc0ver 4.0 only supports the following devices running iOS 13 – iOS 13.3.
- iPhone XR
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone 11 Pro
- iPhone 11 Pro Max
- iPhone 11
The tool does not support iPhone X and older generations of iPhones.
If you have an old iPhone or iPad, then you can use the Checkra1n tool to jailbreak it.
Pre-Requisites for the Jailbreak
- Before you attempt to jailbreak your phone, you have to delete any iOS 13 OTA update file from Settings -> Storage and reboot your device.
- Unc0ver jailbreak has complete support for Cydia and Substrate.
- It is advised to have a backup of all the important data on your device before moving forward with the jailbreaking steps.
