One of the most frequently asked questions now: is it worth upgrading to the latest version of iOS?

The main rule of jailbreak - if possiblestay at the lowest possible version of the system to increase your chances of installing a jailbreak. Let's talk together about whether to upgrade iOS.

What is known about jailbreak iOS 12

In recent weeks, several iOS 12 exploits have been released, raising hopes for jailbreak release. The exploit has even been published by Ian Beer. Recall that on the basis of his exploit was created jailbreak iOS 11.

The exploits concern only iOS 12.1.2 and below. Apple fixed a vulnerability in iOS 12.1.3, so a potential jailbreak will not support this version.

Whether or not to upgrade depends on your current version of iOS.

iOS 12.1.3

If you have installed iOS 12.1.3 or beta iOS 12.2, you should roll back to iOS 12.1.2 or iOS 12.1.1, until Apple stopped signing them. This week, the company should release iOS 12.1.4 with fixing a serious FaceTime bug, so the signature of iOS 12.1.2 and iOS 12.1.2 can also be closed this week.

iOS 12.1.2 - iOS 12.1.1

If you have iOS 12.1.2 or iOS 12.1.1, then you should avoid upgrades.

iOS 12, iOS 12.0.1, iOS 12.1

If you have iOS 12, iOS 12.0.1 or iOS 12.1, the decision is yours. Upgrading to iOS 12.1.3 is not necessary, but you can upgrade to iOS 12.1.2 or iOS 12.1.1. You can stay on the current version.

iOS 11 - iOS 11.4.1

You probably would like to upgrade to iOS 12.1.2 or iOS 12.1.1 for the sake of new features, but we recommend staying on iOS 11 - iOS 11.4.1, especially if you already have an Electra or Unc0ver jailbreak installed.

It is not necessary to be updated until the jailbreak toolfor iOS 12 will not work and will not be stable enough. However, the situation is controversial, because they may soon close the signature window. Here you act at your own risk.

The same applies to users with iOS 10 - iOS 10.3.1.
