iOS 12.4 Beta Gets Jailbroken with Cydia Running

If you’re eagerly waiting for an iOS 12.4 jailbreak, you might be in for a treat. A famous hacker, going by the name of PsychoTea, has successfully jailbroken iOS 12.4 beta.

Now, while it’s common for iOS Betas to get jailbroken as a proof-of-concept, it’s still very welcome to see that the latest and greatest from Apple isn’t bullet-proof. Every year. there’s an outcry of people claiming that the latest iOS version is “unjailbreakable”, which Grammarly correctly tells me isn’t even a word.

Every software has bugs and exploits, meaning every piece of software can be hacked. iOS 12.4 is no different, and we can see that today from the progress PsychoTea has made:

The screenshot shows Cydia running on iOS 12.4, which we assume is of the latest build. While this does not mean an iOS 12.4 jailbreak is close, it further confirms that is is “possible” and it will get cracked sooner or later.

Judging by the past, a jailbreak for iOS 12.4 should come around the release of iOS 13, possibly a bit later. While this might sound like a long time, keep in mind that iOS 12.4 isn’t even publicly out yet. Releasing a jailbreak now would be a total waste of exploits as Apple could, and would, patch them in an instant.

Meanwhile, to get iOS 13 features, why don’t you take a look at our recent article; Every Jailbreak Tweak Apple Copied in iOS 13?

Update: This article previously stated that iOS 13 Beta was jailbroken. This is incorrect and we have now updated the article to reflect this. We are sorry for any accidental spread of misinformation.
