With the iOS 13.3 update being available for all the supported Apple devices, it’s highly likely that the iOS 13.3 jailbreak update with checkra1n will come out too. That said, it’ll provide the support for devices running the iOS 13.3 update, as well as iPadOS.
Apple is attempting to make its operating system more and more secure, and less prone to exploiting and jailbreaking, but as far as the checkra1n iOS jailbreak is concerned, modern jailbreaking is becoming more powerful. If the future iOS 13.3 jailbreak update comes out soon, non-supported iOS 13.3 devices, as well as those who want to unlock the complete power of their device’s firmware, can enjoy its multiple features.
Hackers and others who work on establishing jailbreaks for iPhones and iPads focus on a bootrom-based jailbreak, which has been successful in rooting the iPhone and iPad hardware that is easily vulnerable to it, despite Apple focusing on trying to make it better. The checkra1n jailbreak works on these devices thanks to the exploit called checkm8.
As checkm8 is also bootrom-based, like other exploits that worked on Apple’s devices so far, it’s impossible for the Cupertino-based tech giant to prevent the iOS 13.3 jailbreak update, as well as the iPadOS 13.3 from being updated and jailbroken to support the compatible hardware once the update becomes available by checkra1n.
The exploit and checkra1n work together in preventing the operating system from preventing the update on the iPhone or iPad. The team uses the exploit to inject the iOS 13.3 jailbreak update before the operating system even detects it in the update. If this information sounds too techy for you, it only means that the operating system versions that are above iOS 12.3 will be easily jailbreakable on the devices from iPhone 5s to iPhone X, thanks to the checkm8 exploit.
While there hasn’t been any official announcement by the checkra1n team which notifies the users about the update following the release of iOS 13.3 update and iPad OS, if you’ve been keeping up with the checkra1n jailbreak, you know that it won’t be too long before the updated jailbreak is available also. Currently, the active version as per the website is 0.9.6 which shows that the future version of the jailbreak could likely be 1.0, meaning that it would finally exit the beta and come as an official jailbreak supporting iOS 13.3. However, it’s too early to tell whether the team plans to exit the beta until they officially announce it.
The iOS 13.3 is now available for downloading as Apple released it on Dec. 10. It came with several updates in terms of security and functionalities on the Safari browser, as well as new parental controls on screen time, an update on the Contact list for children. The News also got an update including a new layout for Apple News+ stories, and tap-based liking and disliking of news. There are already numerous bug fixes.
