We have tested and can confirm that mach_portal Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 / 10.1.1 works on iPhone SE. Here are the details.

All previous discussions on the topic of compatible devices had focused on Apple’s iPhone 6s/6s Plus and iPhone 7/7 Plus, as well as the 12.9 and 9.7-inch iPad Pro models. But as mentioned earlier, we have tested iPhone SE and it happens to work just fine for us. We have also received a number of reports from other readers of RP confirming it does indeed work. Since it’s not listed as officially supported device, and the fact that the jailbreak is still in beta, we’ll suggest proceeding with caution as your mileage may vary.

Apple’s iPhone SE may look like a step back to some because of the fact that it’s a 4-inch iPhone 5s-like device with internals from iPhone 6s. The fact that it was being targeted at emerging economies and those who didn’t want to, or couldn’t, part with high-end money for the larger devices also built that opinion.

Since the phone itself is essentially an iPhone 6s on the inside, packaged into a smaller case and marketed towards a different audience, it makes sense that anything designed to work with the iPhone 6s would offer compatibility with the iPhone SE as well, and in this case, the mach_portal Yalu jailbreak offers compatibility with iPhone 6s, it’s probably the reason why it works on iPhone SE as well even though it’s not officially tested and listed to work with it as yet.

It may not be of any interest to those individuals with an iPhone 6s or iPhone 7, or even an iPad Pro, but it will certainly come as a positive surprise to iPhone SE owners on iOS 10/10.1.1 who have been feeling more than a little left out with the jailbreak not offering support for the said model in first instance.

Again, before proceeding with jailbreaking your iPhone SE, we’ll remind you that currently the iOS 10 jailbreak is in beta and does not offer official support for iPhone SE. Exercise caution when running through the process, and only really entertain the idea if you are comfortable that you not only know what you’re doing, but are also confident when it comes to troubleshooting any potential problems that may arise as a result of liberating the device.
