Rather go the old written route? No problem! Let’s get started.

Step 1: Visit the Checkra1n website and download the latest version of the jailbreak tool. Here’s the URL: checkra.in

Step 2: With the tool downloaded, grab the downloaded DMG file and drag it into your /Applications folder.

Step 3: You might get an error saying that the Checkra1n app is not supported or trusted by the operating system. If you do, simply follow these steps. Otherwise, skip straight to step 4:

  • Launch the System Preferences app and head into the Security & Privacy option.
  • Click Open Anyway followed by Open and enter your password when prompted.
  • Run the checkra1n app again, and it should work as intended.

Step 4: Once you have the Checkra1n app running, connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac using an official Apple Lightning cable.

Step 5: Open the Checkra1n Options and check the “Allow untested iOS/iPadOS/tvOS versions” option. Once you have made sure that the option is checked, select Back.

Step 6: Click the Start button in the Checkra1n app and then select OK.

Step 7: Select Next and then follow the provided on-screen instructions. This will put your iPhone into DFU mode and will have varying steps depending on what device you are trying to jailbreak.

Step 8: Once Checkra1n detects that your device is in DFU mode, it will do its thing and jailbreak the device. This will result in the connected device being rebooted a few times. Don’t worry, it’s normal. Just be patient.

Step 9: Once the process is complete, unplug the device from your machine and launch the checkra1n app on your iPhone. Tap Cydia to install the iconic Cydia store and then tap Install Cydia to complete the process.

And there you have it! You will be left with a jailbroken device running iOS 13.6.1 with access to Cydia. Enjoy.
