iOS 14 jailbreak has been shown off by the Pangu Team at MOSEC 2020 conference. Here are the details on it.
Apple hasn’t even made iOS 14 available to the public yet, but that isn’t stopping the jailbreakers from doing their thing. Don’t believe us? Talk to the Pangu Team – they’ve already shown off a jailbroken iOS 14 device.
The moment came at MOSEC 2020 which is a mobile security conference with the team showing an iPhone 11 Pro, running iOS 14, all jailbroken. Well, sort of.
While we’ve now seen a demonstration of iOS 14 being hacked, that doesn’t mean that we’re going to see a jailbreak released to everyone just yet; or even, at all.
The Pangu Team hasn’t launched a public jailbreak in a long, long time – not since iOS 9, in fact. And it’s fairly common for teams to show their jailbreaks and never make them available to the public. What they do with them, however, we don’t know.
It’s also very unlikely that anyone will release a jailbreak for iOS 14 before it is made available to the public this September. Doing so would simply give Apple a chance to plug the security hole ahead of time.
As ever though, this does prove that the constant cat and mouse game between Apple and jailbreakers continues and will probably continue to for a long, long time. That’s bad news for Apple but excellent news for those of you who like to have ultimate control over their iPhones and iPads.
If you are on iPhone X or below, you can already jailbreak iOS 13.6 using checkra1n, instructions for which can be found in the video embedded below:
