Apple accidentally left open a vulnerability called Sock Puppet Exploit on iOS 12.4. This allowed hackers to update two tools to enable Jailbreak on iPhones running iOS 12.2 and up. The first one is called Chimera and is one of the most popular tools for the procedure.
Chimera was recently updated to be able to Jailbreak devices with iOS 12.2, 12.3 and iOS TV 12.2. However, this tool works only with the final and non beta versions, and for now they do not exist for iOS 13.
The second tool is entitled Unc0ver and its new update lets you jailbreak the iOS 12.4, the latest stable release of Apple's operating system. However, Apple may eventually release a patch to prevent the vulnerability from being exploited so we don't know how long it will last.
What is Jailbreak for?
Due to iOS restrictions, jailbreak is designed to give users administrative access, giving them full control over the iPhone. This allows the user to customize, modify and manage files as desired within their device.
A similar process exists on Android called Root. Although Android is freer, there are users who want even more control, so there is Root. However, it is important to note that both Root and Jailbreak invalidate the warranties of mobile phones, which we advise caution if you venture.
