Can You Jailbreak iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Running iOS 14 – iOS 14.5?

Checkra1n iOS 14 Jailbreak Tweaks

It has been a few months since the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro series were released. Apple has also released a number of iOS 14 updates to fix bugs and add new features to the OS. Usually, it takes a few months for a jailbreak to be available for a new release of iOS or a new iPhone. With the iPhone 12 series now available for nearly six months, is it possible to jailbreak them?

Can You Jailbreak iPhone 12 Running iOS 14 – iOS 14.5?

The answer to the above question is both, yes and no. Depending on which iOS 14 build your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro is running on, it is possible to jailbreak it or not jailbreak it. There’s an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak for the iPhone 12 series, but no jailbreak tool currently supports iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.5 jailbreak.

Jailbreak iPhone 12 Running iOS 14 – iOS 14.3

Initially, an iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak was only available in the form of Checkra1n, though the problem with it is that it only works with a limited number of iPhones and iPad. Checkra1n is based on the checkm8 bootrom exploit and so it only works with those devices that are vulnerable to the exploit. This primarily includes iPhone X and older devices.

The good thing is that Pwn20wnd and Sam Binger have released Unc0ver 6.0 jailbreak, which supports jailbreaking iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 on all new iPhones and iPad.
