Apple released AirTags as their latest device in the 2021 Apple event. On this page, we are focusing all information about AirTag Jailbreak.
1st time Apple introduced the “Find my iPhone” feature on June 15, 2010. Using this feature, you could find your Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc.
There are very few Jailbreak tweaks that have been released targeting “Find my iPhone” such as BlueFinder, Chusma etc.
Jailbreak will be so incredible with an AirTag, Why ?
We can assume that awesome jailbreak features will be released to AirTag. Why is it so incredible?
However, Apple still didn’t release the AirTag to the market. So you can buy an Air tag alternative from Refizo. This Refizo is significantly cheaper than the Air tag, and it works with old iPhones too.
Unfortunately, Apple Air Tags work with the latest iPhone models running iOS 14.5 or later such as iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max.
AirTag Jailbreak is different from iOS jailbreak. It cannot jailbreak AirTag through the iOS version using the Jailbreak tool. Security researcher Stack Smashing (@ghidraninja) has successfully hacked the AirTag. He has shown the way to jailbreak AirTag. He has broken into the microcontroller of the AirTag to modify the part of the item tracker software.
Microcontroller is an integrated Circuit (IC). It can control the memory of the device. If it was able to hack the Microcontroller of the Airtag, that means that the AirTag jailbreak was done successfully to control it. After the AirTag Jailbreak the hacker can decide what the device needs to do with it. So, Stack Smashing has decided to modify its NFC URL. He has published a short video of AirTag with modified NFC URL on his twitter too.
