While Jailbreaking iOS isn’t nearly as popular as it used to be, there’s still a sizeable community built around circumventing Apple’s “walled garden.” While the checkm8 exploit has all but guaranteed a permanent Jailbreak method on Apple devices powered by the A11 SoC (like the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X) or lower, A12 and A13 devices on the latest versions of iOS have largely been left out of the jailbreak scene. Until now.
A new exploit found in iOS 13.4.1 may lead to a Jailbreaking method for A13 devices. The exploit, which is a tfp0 bug in the iOS 13.4.1 kernel, could allow iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max users to Jailbreak their phones in the near future.
The exploit was found and posted on Twitter by @ProteasWang, a security researcher. The tfp0 bug cannot be used to Jailbreak devices by itself, but it is an important step in the Jailbreaking process. As such, we may soon see a viable method of Jailbreaking A13 devices on iOS 13.4.1.
