iPhone XS - iOS 12 Has Been Jailbroken

As the title says..  Pangu team successfully jailbreaks Apple's brand - new iPhone XS running on iOS 12 . Min(Spark) Zheng, an iOS security engineer at Alibaba. Zheng revealed the accomplishment in a post on Twitter.

In this particular case, the jailbreak appears be running on a 5.8-inch iPhone XS, but since the hardware in the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max is practically identical, we expect that the jailbreak should also work on Apple‘s larger flagship.

Although we have no word of an official public jailbreak in the works for iOS 12 at this time, that doesn’t mean it isn’t being worked on. With security researchers shifting focus to iOS 12, it should only be a matter of time before a useful exploit gets released, and this could light the fuse for jailbreak tool development.

Are you excited to see jailbreak coming to iPhone XS and iOS 12 or not? Share your thoughts in our comment section below.

Security researchers with Ali Security recently demoed a working untethered jailbreak on iOS 12, but it was running on the previous-generation iPhone X. Pangu’s latest example is the first we’re aware of that showcases a jailbreak on Apple’s brand-new A12 Bionic hardware.

From the Tweet, we also learn how the jailbreak encompasses a functional PAC mitigation, which aids in the jailbreak tool’s success.
