firmware

Apple released iOS 13.5 on May 19. Just a few hours laterjailbreak announced for latest iOS version that Apple had just released, something that it had not happened for several years, when the jailbreak community was much more active than it is today.

Unsurprisingly, Apple quickly got down to business to patch the vulnerability that had been used for the jailbreak, a jailbreak compatible with all devices managed with iOS 13.5, including the models that Apple launched in September 2019: iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.

On June 1, Apple released iOS 13.5.1, a version that patches the vulnerability that the jailbreak release for iOS 13.5 had been allowed. The unc0ver jailbreak is compatible with all versions of iOS up to 13.5, a jailbreak that no longer possible with the latest version of iOS which Apple is currently signing.

Apple usually gives about two weeks of margin from launching a version of iOS until it stops signing the previous one, however, this time, the deadline has been reduced to 8 days (He stopped signing it yesterday Monday night in Spain). This reduction in time is due to security reasons so that users of Apple devices cannot be affected by this vulnerability through the jailbreak or companies that are dedicated to exploiting these types of vulnerabilities.

Goodbye to jailbreak

After stopping signing iOS 13.5, currently the only version of iOS that Apple is currently signing is iOS 13.5.1, the update that Apple released on June 1, so if you have a functioning problem on your device that force you to restore, You can only do it to this version.

If you are a user of this latest jailbreak, you should be very careful with the tweaks that you install on your device to not be forced to restore it and miss the opportunity to jailbreak, although if we consider how quickly the latter came out, it will probably not take us long to hear from him again in iOS 13 or even iOS 14.
