A term used to describe the removal of restricted mode on iPhones. It allows users to make changes to the system and download and install third-party apps on their devices. While it is not illegal, Apple strongly opposes jailbreaking and it is likely to void the device’s warranty.
- No need to wait for Apple to approve new apps and software — users can install it themselves.
- Increased personalization: change the default browser or add more icons on the home screen. Advanced users can even fix annoying bugs.
- Increased chances of downloading malware instead of an actual app.
- You will have to pay for repairs, even if your device is still technically under warranty.
- It’s very easy to mess up your system, and then you’ll have to deal with crashes, bugs, and constant battery drain.
