Apple unveiled iOS 13, the next major iOS software update for iPhone at the WWDC 2019 in June. It comes packed with tons of new features such as Dark mode, new Reminders app, improved Maps app with the cool Look Around feature, new Photos & Video editor, and improvements such as faster app launch times, faster Face ID etc.
But despite all the new iOS 13 features and improvements, there are still many reasons to jailbreak iOS 13 such as to install iFile, which gives access to the file system, tweaks like Message Customizer that lets you customize each aspect of the Messages app, ability to lock apps and folders using Touch ID and lots more.
iOS 13 Jailbreak Status
Apple has released iOS 13 – iOS 13.7 which includes hundreds of new features and improvements.
On November 10, 2019, checkra1n jailbreak for iOS 13 was released which is based on the checkm8 exploit. The jailbreak team released an update on December 14 to add support for iOS 13.3 and later added support for iOS 13.7. So it supports iOS 13 – iOS 13.7. It also supports iOS 12.3 – iOS 12.4.4. It is a semi-tethered jailbreak which means that it requires you to have access to a PC to start the jailbreak process. You cannot jailbreak iOS 13 without a computer.
The checkra1n jailbreak supports all iPhones and iPads up until the iPhone X. However, the current beta (v0.9) lacks support for the iPad Air 2, 5th gen. iPad, and the 1st gen iPad Pro. Compatibility with the iPhone 5s, iPhone mini 2, iPad mini 3, and iPad Air is also in experimental stages. It also means it does not support iOS devices powered by Apple’s A12 and A13 chips such as iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

But it supports only iOS 13.5 or lower. It does not support iOS 13.5.1 – iOS 13.7.
On April 9, chechra1n team released a new version of the jailbreak tool to add support for iOS 13.4 – iOS 13.4.1.
On May 23, unc0ver team released Uncover 5.0, which allows you to jailbreak iOS 13.5 on all iPhones and iPads including the new iPad Pro and iPhone SE (2020). Unc0ver 5.0 supports all iPhones and iPad running iOS 13.5 including:
