We reveal everything jailbreak related & download links for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV on this page.

What is Jailbreak?

Jailbreak is the process of removing Apple software restrictions for iOS devices. Usually, iOS users can install apps from the Apple App Store only. Jailbroken devices allow 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.

Jailbreak tools and processes may vary depending on your device model and iOS versions. You should use the most compatible Jailbreak tool according to your device model / iOS version and computer operating system.

Hardware Jailbreak

Still, Hardware Jailbreak is not available for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR.

Popular Hardware Jailbreaking

Unfortunately, Hardware Jailbreak is not as easy as the Software Jailbreak. You must have excellent ability to set extra hardware removing iPhone cases.
