Jailbreak

Jailbreak is the process of removing Apple software restrictions for iOS devices. Usually, iOS users can install apps from Apple App Store only. Jailbroken device allows you to install 3rd party apps that are not offered by Apple. Therefore, Jailbreak is the only way to install iOS system tweaks, themes, customization apps and many kinds of Apple dissentient apps (screen recorders, advance file managers, game hackers, spy apps, etc.)

Jailbreak is 100% legal and a safe process. Apple always tries to prevent it. They fix previous jailbreaks by releasing new iOS versions. Volunteer iOS hackers are working together to exploit these new iOS versions to release Jailbreak.
Therefore, Jailbreak tools and processes may vary depending on your device model and software (iOS) versions. You must use a Windows or a Mac computer to complete the process.
Jailbreak is available for all iPhones,  iPads,  iPod Touches and Apple TVs and not available for Apple Watches (iWatch ) at this time.
