Although some people just opt for the official iOS version, others intend to jailbreak their devices to acquire accessibility to more features. Jailbreaking makes iOS devices more vulnerable and open to threats. Through this latest update from Apple, hackers are getting a tough time jailbreaking the update.
Apple VS Jailbreaker
Apple invests a great deal of money in R&D, Software Engineers works very hard for the safety and security of new updates. Those updates are evaluated by a team of developers and registered testers for a long time. They are available to the public just when Apple thinks updates are stable and secure.
Obviously, those who are expecting anjailbreak or anything after may need to wait for a long time. As a matter of fact, jailbreakers on latest devices could have an absolutely tough time jailbreaking anything beyond iOS 12.1.2.
Apple’s iOS 12.2 update is granting a tough time to hackers. A popular lead developer, Pwn20wnd, attempted to Jailbreak iOS 12.2 update and recommended people to avoid upgrading their devices.
iOS 12.0-12.1.2 may be the last jailbreakable iOS versions for arm64e devices (A12-A12X) for a very long time…

The wait for A12-A12X (arm64e) support will pay off. Stay on your current firmware, block OTA updates and wait for it. Don’t update from your current firmware.https://t.co/PyUWcjd41A
