Protection iOS 12 from jailbreak

Recently known developer nullriverHe said that in iOS 12 was added additional protection against jailbreak. This is not surprising, because Apple has long been struggling with jailbreaking. For this, the company not only regularly releases new versions of the system with bug and vulnerability fixes, but also adds new protection methods. In addition, the company quickly ceases to sign old versions of the system so that users cannot roll back.

IOS 12 has become more difficult to jailbreak for the following reasons:

- CoreTrust system, which checks all signatures of Apple and does not miss fake signatures;

- vm_map_exec_lockdown protection in the A12 processor (not exactly).

None of these reasons are too significant. However, hackers and developers will need to try hard to get around all the restrictions.
