Apple on Monday released iOS 13.5.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The release notes only mention security updates, and the update itself was 77.5MB on my iPhone 11 Pro Max

Shortly after releasing the update, Apple updated its security updates page with more information about what exactly was fixed in today’s update. Jailbreak fans will be disappointed to learn, Apple has already patched the exploit that is used by the Unc0ver jailbreak. 

Jailbreaking an iPhone gives users root access to the entire iPhone OS, allowing them to install tweaks and other apps outside of Apple’s App Store. 

The Unc0ver jailbreak was released on May 24 and was the first exploit that worked on a current version of iOS in the last few years. 

Apple didn’t mention any other bug fixes, performance improvements, or security updates included with iOS 13.5.1. 

If you’ve used the Unc0ver tool to jailbreak your iOS device, installing iOS 13.5.1 will remove it and block you from jailbreaking it again. 

Did you jailbreak your Apple device last week? If so, why? What are you installing or doing with a jailbroken iPhone that you can’t do on a standard iPhone? I’m genuinely curious, as I haven’t used a jailbreak on any iOS device in several years.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
