NO! an iOS 13 jailbreak for all devices, including A12 and A13 has yet to be released. For A13, this includes the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. For A12, this includes the iPhone XS Max, XS, XR and 2018 iPad Pro models. Currently the latest jailbreak is for iOS 12.4 in the form of Unc0ver and Chimera. However several hackers have confirmed work on an iOS 13 jailbreak utility has begun.
To start, we have checkm8. An all-powerful bootrom exploit for A11 devices and older. For iOS 13, this includes the iPhone 6S to the iPhone X. Released by security researcher axi0mX, Checkm8 is a low-level bootrom exploit that will lead to a permanent jailbreak on the iPhone X (A11) and lower.
This is a hardware exploit that cannot be patched by Apple with software. In other words, every single future firmware will be jailbroken. As long as Apple supports they devices, they’ll be jailbroken. This is literally the biggest thing to happen to jailbreaking in the last decade! For a more detailed explanation, we suggest watching the above video in its entirety.
iOS 13.1.3 Released – Jailbreak Updates!
Update: On October 15, Apple released iOS 13.1.3 to the public. As the fourth update to iOS 13 since 13.0 launched just under a month ago, 13.1.3 fixes a number of issues that have persisted in all past iOS 13 updates. For a full walkthrough and jailbreak analysis of iOS 13.1.3, we recommend watching the above video. As a prelude to the jailbreak information featured here, iOS 13.1.3 doesn’t set back jailbreak development. It’s expected that we will get a jailbreak for iOS 13.1.3+
iOS 13.1.2 Jailbreak Achieved – Checkra1n Coming!
Update: On October 9, hacker Luca Todesco (qwertyoruiop) confirmed that he’s successfully achieved an iOS 13.1.2 jailbreak. In a series of tweets, Todesco showed off a jailbroken iPhone SE on iOS 13.1.2 and an iPhone X on iOS 12.4 running through a custom boot logo sequence.
Todesco says that he intends on releasing his iOS 13 jailbreak as soon as he corrects several bugs. Although the hacker has publicly confirmed in the past that he will not release a tool for the jailbreak community again, it looks like he’s changed his mind. For full and complete details, watch the above video.
In a follow-up to the news that he’s achieved an iOS 13.1.2 jailbreak, hacker Luca Todesco confirmed the name of his in-development jailbreak: checkra1n. That’s right, it looks like the first jailbreak for iOS 13 will be dubbed checkra1n.
The name seemingly pays homage to both limera1n and checkm8. The former of course being the first bootrom-based exploit for iPhone 4 and lower, which was released by the legendary hacker Geohot. The latter is the new checkm8 bootrom exploit discovered and released by researcher axi0mX.
Besides Luca Todesco, Pwn20wnd (developer of the last several jailbreaks), and Chronic of the quondam Chronic Dev Team have also expressed interest in releasing tools.
A12 and A13 Jailbreak on iOS 13
Unfortunately, neither A12 nor A13-powered devices are supported. This means the new iPhone 11 series and last year’s iPhone XS / XR lineup will be left out. However not all is lost, developers still intend to jailbreak Apple’s lates devices. Furthermore although neither A12 nor A13 are supported by checkm8, the exploit and any jailbreak tool(s) based on it will directly benefit the devices.
Think about it, all recent jailbreaks have taken advantage of kernel exploits. If researchers now have a permanent jailbreak that functions on the latest firmwares, which cannot be patched by Apple, they have permanent research environment! This makes fuzzing, a process used by security researchers to discover vulnerabilities, that much “easier”. New kernel vulnerabilities that are a direct result of this permanent jailbreak will apply to all devices. This includes those powered by A12 and A13 CPUs. Of course there are still extra security mechanisms to deal with on the latest devices, but a kernel exploit should nevertheless yield an iOS 13 jailbreak for them.
A13 Jailbreak: tfp0 Achieved!
Building on that for A13, not long ago, hacker iBSparkes was able to get tfp0 on A13. A tfp0 patch basically removes a restriction that prevents a user from accessing the kernel task. The patch allows any executable running as root to call the kernel task and then modifies the kernel VM region to both read and write. So what the heck does that mean? For the layperson all you need to know is that this is a crucial step in achieving full root access and, in turn, an A13 jailbreak on iOS 13. Again, this is great news!

Jailbreak iOS 13 Release Date
To provide one final summary, expect a jailbreak soon. The first tool will only support the iPhone X and earlier due to the nature of the aforementioned checkm8 exploit. Subsequent discoveries, such as new kernel vulnerabilities, will lead to an iOS 13 jailbreak for all devices.
We’re about to enter a golden age of jailbreaking. The iPhone X and earlier will be able to jailbreak every single firmware. We’ll even receive more new kernel exploit-based jailbreaks than ever before. Think of it, more than 1 or 2 jailbreaks a year. We can’t wait!
