Kritanta teases an upcoming new jailbreak for iOS 13.7 and below

Most iOS & iPadOS 13 jailbreakers are using either checkra1n, Odyssey, or unc0ver to enjoy an unrestricted handset without Apple virtue signaling how their user experience should be, but there could well be a new jailbreak in town very soon.

iOS developer Kritanta, known and respected for releasing a slew of high-quality jailbreak tweaks over the past few years, took to Twitter this afternoon to tease what could only be described as the very early stages of an upcoming jailbreak tool.

We’ve witnessed a plethora of teasers from Pwn20wnd and the rest of team unc0ver throughout the past week. That said, it might come off as somewhat of a surprise that the checkra1n team launched an updated public beta version of the checkra1n jailbreak Wednesday afternoon, seemingly out of the blue.

The announcement, shared first by checkra1n team member Luca Todesco, denoted that the latest version of the checkra1n jailbreak tool would be v0.9.8.1 and that it would incorporate substantial changes:

Apple sues mobile device virtualization company Corellium, cites ‘copyright infringement’

Apple’s legal team filed a lawsuit against mobile device virtualization company Corellium LLC this week for purported “copyright infringement,” citing that Corellium’s business model “is based entirely on commercializing the illegal replication of the copyrighted operating system and applications that run on Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and other Apple devices.”

Corellium’s services are a valuable asset to security researchers because they enable deployment of Apple’s mobile operating system in a virtualized environment. With such a tool, hackers can research iOS vulnerabilities, and in the case of unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd, it can even help with jailbreak tool development by ensuring stability across all device and firmware combinations.
