There has been a spike in activity in the jailbreaking community after a series of exploits were discovered for iOS 11 and iOS 12. The iOS 11 exploits paved the way for a more stable jailbreaking experience with a greater success rate on A9 devices and lower. As for iOS 12, multiple exploits have been detailed for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2. It is now up to the talented developers from the jailbreaking community to use these exploits and create the first public jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2.
