Apple’s New Post Against Jailbreaking Ahead Of Electra iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak Release

When we talk about jailbreaking iOS devices, Apple focuses purely on killing that jailbreakable version of its mobile operating system, or patch it and it’s done with every new iOS release.

Now, the company has taken a step further by sharing a new support document in which it states some of the difficulties that its users can potentially expect to experience if and when they jailbreak.

So Apple comes with a new page outlining something about the future iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak edging ever closer to public release. Indeed, Apple has taken this step of tackling the process of iOS hacking head-on, telling potential jailbreakers all about the downsides of a process that has been popular for many, many years. Not only on jailbreaking specifically, Apple’s latest support document is something worth notable.

iOS is designed to be reliable and secure from the moment you turn on your device. Built-in security features protect against malware and viruses and help to secure access to personal information and corporate data.

What’s explained during that document were a number of potential issues to jailbreaking. Ranging from reduced battery life to decreased security thanks to the way jailbreakers “bypass security features” in order to work their magic. Made by Apple known are some instability and a general disruption of services, too.

After listing all the potential errors to jailbreaking, Apple drops perhaps the most important not of all; jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod touches may not be serviced by the company if something goes awry.

Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks iOS. It is also important to note that unauthorized modification of iOS is a violation of the iOS end-user software license agreement and because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software.

For those who are pretty much deeply involved in the world of jailbreaking, this is unlikely to put you off hacking your iOS devices in the future. If you are just contemplating dipping your toe in that world, however, may just be enough to make you think twice. Because this is directly from Apple as a warning or caution.
