iOS 16: the tool of these hackers allows you to jailbreak the least recent iPhones
iOS is known to be a very closed operating system. Apple is doing everything to lock down its OS. However, some users persist in wanting to personalize their iPhone. Hackers from palera1n have released an iOS customization tool that exploits the checkm8 flaw in Apple Silicon chips.
iOS 16 is a notoriously closed operating system. Opportunities to customize how it looks or works are rare, which is one of the reasons many people prefer the Android ecosystem.

Jailbreaking is frowned upon by Apple. If, after trying palera1n, you “brick” your iPhone and you can’t restore its factory settings, don’t expect any help from the Cupertino company: this operation voids your warranty. Also, this jailbreak only works on iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPad 5, 6, 7 and iPad Pro 1st and 2nd generation.
palera1n jailbreak only works on old iPhones and iPads running iOS 15 and iOS 16
This limitation is due to the fact that the jailbreak exploits a flaw in iOS which only affects devices running iOS 15 and iOS 16 with Apple Silicon A8 to A11 chips. If you want to try palera1n, you will also need to use a computer running macOS or Linux with an installation of Python. You would have understood it, the operation is not technically within everyone’s reach.
