What is Jailbreaking?

Jailbreaking is the process of removing restrictions in iOS, and allow root access to the iOS file system so that it can run unsigned code or software that has not been approved by Apple. It allows users to install jailbreak apps, tweaks and themes to customize the look and feel of their iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus, and also enhance the functionality.

Usually, during the jailbreak process, an unofficial application is installed that makes it easy to install jailbreak apps, tweaks, and themes. Cydia is one of the most popular App Store for jailbreak apps, tweaks, extensions, and themes that are not available or available through Apple’s App Store.

Jailbreak apps and tweaks add functionality that is not available in iOS such as the ability to lock individual apps using Face ID. Tweaks also bring features that are not available on older iPhones. For example, a jailbreak tweak called Aperturize brings Depth Control, which was first introduced in iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max to older iPhones such as iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and iPhone 7 Plus.

Is Jailbreaking iPhone X legal?

Jailbreaking is legal in most countries. In 2010, 2012, and 2015, the U.S. Copyright Office approved exemptions allowing smartphone users to jailbreak their devices as jailbreaks do not infringe on copyrights.

Does Jailbreaking Void my iPhone X’s warranty?

Apple’s support document about jailbreaking claims that they “may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software.” Therefore, anyone who is jailbroken, warranty or not, may or may not get support from Apple. However, restoring your iPhone X to factory settings and setting it up as a “New iPhone” will remove all traces of the jailbreak and prevent Apple from detecting that the device was jailbroken so there is an easy way to avoid voiding your iPhone’s warranty.
