New "Unc0ver" jailbreak unlocks devices, even those running the current iOS 13.5 release.
A team of hackers, security researchers, and reverse engineers have released today a new jailbreak package for iOS devices.
By default, Apple does not allow users to have full control over their iPhones and other iOS devices, citing security reasons.
Jailbreaks are a type of custom software that works by exploiting bugs in the iOS operating system in order to grant users root access and full control over their device.
Earlier today, the Unc0ver team released Unc0ver 5.0.0, the latest version of their jailbreaking software, which can root and unlock all iOS devices, even those running the most recent iOS release -- iOS v13.5.
This is possible, they said, because Unc0ver 5.0.0 utilizes a zero-day vulnerability in the iOS operating system, a vulnerability that Apple is not aware of.
