iOS 13 Beta Has Been Jailbroken Already

With no time wasted, Cydia has been shown running on iPhone 8 with Apple’s initial iOS 13 beta 1 installed.

Developer @iBSparkes has taken to Twitter to show off the achievement, tagging Luca Todesco in the tweet, and including a screenshot showing Cydia in operation along with the necessary device and firmware information.

Most folks in the jailbreak community will likely be familiar with @iBSparkes – formerly known as PyshcoTea – and will definitely be aware of the existence of Luca Todesco, who seems to be the partner-in-crime of many developers who have tasked themselves with making progress in the world of jailbreaking. This is the same individual that took the opportunity to demonstrate Cydia running on a jailbroken version of Apple’s iOS 12.4 firmware just yesterday.

Now, thanks to a little more work and a little more tinkering, that achievement has been upgraded and pushed out into the public domain with a liberated initial version of iOS 13 with Cydia in full view. This is definitely a reason to experience excitement and joy but also a prime time to try and contain that slightly and understand that this demonstration utilizes the very first development preview of iOS 13. There is no chance whatsoever of this moving into the public domain as Apple would immediately discover the vulnerabilities used and patch it prior to the public release of iOS 13 later this year.

Of course, there is also a chance that Apple could find the vulnerability themselves as part of the iOS 13 progression process, and, therefore, patch the problem without needing to explore the jailbreak’s code. It’s for that reason that this will likely be extremely protected for the next few months and the developers will continue to explore each beta release by Apple to see if the vulnerabilities still exist.

This type of announcement could cause a ton of iOS device owners to want to upgrade to Apple’s iOS 13 beta but it really is fruitless as there will be no jailbreak released for those individuals. This is purely for information and demonstration purposes only at this stage. The hope here is that Apple continues to progress iOS 13 but doesn’t patch the issue exposed to produce this jailbreak, which, in turn, would hopefully leave us in a position whereby iOS 13 could be liberated as close to launch day as possible.
