Ever since iOS 8, jailbreaking has become harder to do, but the developers seem to be finding ways around Apple’s security again.

Developed for the 64-bit A7 to A11 devices with ARM architecture, it works on iOS 11 or above and is completely free. Here are all the details.

You can choose between two methods to install Unc0ver:

  11. Wait – your device will respring, and the Cydia app icon will be on your home screen; your device is now jailbroken

Method 2: Using AltStore ( Requires PC )

AltStore is another unofficial app store, but this one requires your computer to install it on your device. This also means the app needs refreshing once every seven days to ensure it doesn’t crash. Full details can be found on the AltStore download page

  5. Open Settings > General > Profiles and trust the Unc0ver profile
  6. Tap the Unc0ver icon and tap on Jailbreak

AltStore requires that your device and computer are connected via cable or iTunes Wi-Fi Sync to refresh the app weekly – this will stop it from crashing.
