Developer behind ‘Brenbreak’ Apple Watch jailbreak teases SSH capabilities

iPhones and iPads have been jailbreakable for more than a decade, but the Apple Watch doesn’t quite seem to receive as much attention as those handsets in the pwnage department. For that reason, a work-in-progress Apple Watch-centric jailbreak dubbed ‘Brenbreak’ by @ethanpepro has been particularly intriguing, to say the least.

The mastermind behind the Brenbreak Apple Watch jailbreak has been sharing regular updates via Twitter since April, and with one of the most recent updates indicating a Q4 2019 public release, it should come as no surprise to anyone that @ethanpepro shared yet another momentous milestone just last night:

‘Brenbreak’ Apple Watch jailbreak for watchOS 4.0-5.1.2 teased for Q4 2019

Some folks have been jailbreaking their iPhones and iPads for many years, but not so much their Apple Watches; however, that could all change in the not-so-distant future.

In April, we shared with you the news of what appeared to be preliminary progress on an Apple Watch-centric jailbreak, namely one that would support watchOS versions 4.0-5.1.2 on all current iterations of the Apple Watch including Series 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4. Sadly, progress updates on this particular project have been somewhat sparse since its announcement.
