Apple has recently released iOS 12.1 as the major operating system version to the public as the first major follower with a considerable set of changes. And if go with the history, Apple will very soon close the gates to the previous versions that signs making iOS 12.1 the only option. So if you do care about iOS 12 Jailbreak, this going to be the final chance to downgrade to the initial iOS 12 released versions in order to save the chance for jailbreak and Cydia opportunities.
As to the usual practice by Apple, they close the signing window for previous firmware after several days from the update of the new operating system version. Probably after 14 days from the new update, Apple will close the window making your device stuck in the latest iOS 12.1.
Electra and unc0ver for iOS 11
As of this writing, Electra and unc0ver are the recently updated jailbreak tools that support iOS 11 in getting successful Cydia. Both these tools accept semi-untethered jailbreak technique that signs the IPA through Cydia impactor tool. With noticed the trend for semi-untethered jailbreak, we could expect more tools in the same way which has introduced by team Pangu from 9.3.3. And thankfully, Jay Freeman (Saurik) has updated Cydia impactor for version 0.9.46 which is with the compatibility for latest iOS 12.
A look into iOS 12.1 latest update
iOS 12.1 is the recent update by Apple from which the user is given a number of improvements and additions. And this time, the firmware bundles some of the most awaited enhancements like group facetime which has kept the user waiting from iOS 12 initial release.
With this amazing new feature Group facetime, you can now take up to 32 people for the same call audio or video. Together, they’re going to be more Emoji over 70 with iOS 12.1 Download to make your conversations more fun. And for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and XR, Dual SIM support with eSIM will be introduced. Additionally, there is a hand full of fixes included with the update here making your experience better with the new iteration. But would you give a try or stay where you are in the concern jailbreak?
iOS 12 Jailbreak Updates
If you are privileged with either Electra jailbreak or unc0ver, I must say you are extremely lucky to have the complete Cydia on iOS 11. But in case you are upgraded to iOS 11.4 or 11.4.1, the chance will be missed for both unc0ver jailbreak and Electra. And also if you are on iOS 12.0 or upper with a hand full of stock enhancements, you too have no entry to Cydia Download. In fact, there is still no public solution available for jailbreak iOS 12 as of the time being although it is demonstrated through powerful sessions.
As with the usual theory, firmware lower the latest has more security failures and drops that could tend to have more jailbreak tool versions. So my advice for the moment is staying on the lowest possible firmware from which your chance to get jailbreak going to be increased. Just as to the recent twitter note by @s1guza, the hacker iOS 12 is with more security patches than 11.4-11.4.1 previous. So comparatively, there is a possibility to get a workable jailbreak for 11.4-11.4.1 before developers in the iOS 12 way.
And further, the developer Pwn20wnd has also confirmed this statement highly through a new Twitter note. This is quite worth noticing as he is the one brought unc0ver jailbreak recently that supports iOS 11.0-iOS 11.4 beta 3.
So having this said, we could expect the developer Pwn20wnd working for iOS 11.4 and iOS 11.4.1 as his work next. If you are already on any of this firmware, there is a reason to stay encouraged as we find a number of developers talking here about exploits with firmware already. If you remember, in the middle of month October is something to remember here is where you had a number of exploit reveals centric to iOS 11.4.1 by Ian Beer. So stay tight if you are on either iOS 11.4 or iOS 11.4.1. But what if you have updated iOS 12?
What if you have iOS 12 Download?
Looking at the current state of possibilities, there is a chance to see another iOS 11 jailbreak sooner than later. But if you are already updated to iOS 12, does it going to mean you are totally gone from jailbreak dreams? Not at all. In fact, the recent demo by KeenLab on iOS 12.1 is another encouraging fact which is on the flagship iPhone XS Max. Although this is unlikely to be released to the public as a tool update, this makes the user a lot of encouraged about the possible updates ahead from iOS 12 jailbreak. And it is clear that developers are more concerned on iOS 12 than iOS 11. So there is a competition in the community about coming to the public through a workable tool. In that way, stay on iOS 12 lower firmware is also good thinking from the jailbreak lovers. But this is all about a game of waiting as anything can be found at any time.
One good example taken through recent happenings is the exploiting by @umanghere on iOS 12 which Apple has patched through the recent iOS 12.1. But the interesting fact here is, the potential exploits happened to remain on the previous iOS 12 and iOS 12.0.1 which seems promising for a new tool works out.
What is more in iOS jailbreak?
Creating a new jailbreak tool needs powerful exploits and also should be more than one. Also, there is more work to do for a GUI-based jailbreak tool which should maintain even after bugs are reported later. So in that concern, staying to the lowest possible firmware is highly beneficial in order to get with a compatible jailbreak support. If you are on iOS 11.4 or iOS 11.4.1, that could be a great advantage as there’s a lot of talks behind iOS 11 jailbreak for further. And similarly, those who are on iOS 12.0 or iOS 12.0.1 also should take the fact into mind as there is an equal possibility for developers to shift to iOS 12 just leaving iOS 11 for several times later. So use iTunes and downgrade your iOS 12.1 to possible lowest to increase the chance of jailbreak. This will only be allowed for a few days more and be hurry if you do value jailbreak more than what is given in the stock frame.
iOS 12.1.1 is testing!
iOS 12.1.1 is the new iOS update available for testing for those who are signed to the official Apple beta testing program. There are two betas out at the moment allowing both developers and public beta testers to take attempt of testing. And as to its release notes setting up, it looks like supporting more enhancements and fixes rather than being just a minor scale update. As to the reveals so far, there are more fixes to FaceTime interface fixing some of the reported problems so far from iOS 12 times. Especially, after iOS 12.1 group facetime, there are several things require immediate fixings.
