How to jail break your iPhone
Jailbreaking means to gain the ability to install custom third party apps of your iOS device in more technical terms ! IOS devices have a strict DRM (digital rights management) which is a set of access control technologies for digital copyright. It’s main purpose is to prevent and restrict unauthorized use, modification and distribution of any copyrighted works such as software.
Jailbreaking is a term used for the process of bypassing any DRM restrictions put in place by Apple on their product! This process is illegal however .
Before explaining to you how to jailbreak your iOS 12 iPhone I’m going to explain a few basic things and answer a few questions that you’ll need along the way :

A team of hackers by the name of pwn20wnd, who succeeded in making a software called Unc0ver that helps jailbreak any iOS 12 device.

There are so many ways you can Enhance your iOS experience with Jailbreaking! You can use awesome themes, improve the responsiveness of your phone, add widgets to your customizable lock screen, or download modified apps and the list goes on!

Apple gave us this beautiful hardware but they did nothing with the software to support it , there’s no dark mode, no always-on display , no custom notification, no patterns or animation to take advantage of the display.

phones and it will extend their life span further.

Important : you need to be running iOS 12; the Jailbreak won’t function on any superior version of iOS !!!
Advice before attempting to jailbreak your phone
Save all your data via iTunes on your PC before starting (jailbreaking is unauthorized by Apple, so we strongly recommend you to keep all your precious data in a safe place).
Now that we got everything out of the way let’s get to the good part .
How to jail break your phone
- Step 1 : Go to jailbreaks.fun on your browser
- Step 2: download unc0ver

- Step 4: after installing the app, your phone is going to tell you that the developer of this app is not approved, and it won’t let you run it.
All you need to do to bypass this is to head to Settings – General – Profile, and set Khodal Entrepises as trusted.
- Step 5: Open the application and click on the Jailbreak button (your phone might turn off a few times while jailbreaking). Just make sure to let it continue, and make sure that airplane mode is on and Wifi is off.
