Ali Security showed off the untethered iOS 12 Jailbreak on Video as a Proof-of-Concept
During the past few years, the jailbreak scene has not been as crowded as before because Apple developed enough new feature in order to make us change our minds regarding a jailbreak. However, sometimes you can see a jailbreak appearing out of nowhere, and the semi-untethered ones are super common.
The semi-untethered jailbreak requires you that everytime you restart your phone you need to jailbreak it too again. Contrary to this, the untethered jailbreak stays the same no matter what you do. Ali Security has shown this on an iPhone X running on the iOS 12’s latest version. You might think that Apple has already done a lot on this phone but…it is never enough to satisfy everybody.
This video might be good news, but it still does not mean that the untethered iOS 12 jailbreak can happen every time. It will be hard to jailbreak our phones because for sure Ali Security will not go ahead and release all the tools we need to do so good luck with that. Besides that, the vulnerability they used to get the iPhone jailbroken might have already been identified and will be remediated along with the iOS 12.1 beta that Apple will soon release.
However, if this has a chance to happen and we will have that jailbreak released publicly, it might take a very awkward turn. That would happen because Apple touts better security with every single major iOS release. Well, at least the jailbreak lovers have something to hope for and just because we are a little pessimist it does not mean that their hopes will not become a reality and that they will not get their beloved jailbreak. What happens, happens.
