Avid jailbreakers sporting any of Apple’s latest A13-equipped handsets have yet to see any official jailbreak solutions for their particular devices. But could that change in the foreseeable future?
Hacker and iOS security researcher Brandon Azad took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to announce an exceptional tidbit of news – namely that he would release a proof-of-concept exploit that can achieve read/write on an iPhone 11 running iOS 13.3:
It’s no secret that the checkra1n jailbreak tool the jailbreak community by storm. But despite being unfixable by Apple, it’s still always comforting to see a newfangled jailbreak demonstration, especially when it happens on Apple’s latest firmware and when checkra1n isn’t the method of pwnage.
A Tweet with an embedded video demonstration shared Monday afternoon by Twitter user @08Tc3wBB appears to demonstrate an iPhone X on iOS 13.3.1 beta 3 being jailbroken with the assistance of an unknown side-loaded jailbreak app.
The jailbreak community has been on fire these past few months, with checkra1n delivering an un-patchable jailbreak experience for handsets ranging from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone X, and with unc0ver picking up support for iOS 12.4.1. But hey, why let the pwnage stop there?
Renowned hacker and iOS security researcher iBSparkes broke the silence this weekend after sharing a teaser of what appears to be successful tfp0 on a brand-new A13 device running iOS 13.3. Yes indeed folks, that’s both Apple’s latest hardware and software – pwned in one fell swoop. Not too shabby!
It’s always exciting for the jailbreak community when someone comes forward with a brand-new bug that could potentially enable exploitation for jailbreaking newer devices and versions of iOS. After all, Apple tries very hard to keep iOS bug-free and quickly patches anything that even smells jailbreakable.
With that in mind, a newly-teased ‘tfp0’ bug shared first by @08Tc3wBB and later validated by security researcher @RazMashat would appear to be compatible with Apple’s latest and greatest iOS 13.3 firmware on handsets up to and including the A13 variety. Indeed; even the iPhone 11 Pro platform seems to be vulnerable:
