Unlike Unc0ver, the Electra team is yet to update Chimera with support for A7-A8 devices running iOS 12.1.3 – iOS 12.2.
The update comes just a day after the Pwn20wnd team updated Unc0ver jailbreak with some major stability fixes and added support for A7-A8 devices like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. On the flip side, Chimera supports jailbreaking A12 Bionic devices like the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and the 2018 iPad Pro, though it only supports iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2.
