Jailbreak is a very popular modification and customization tool among iOS users. It has been there for many years, and allows to have very interesting exclusive features for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
However, although it may be very tempting to download and install the Jailbreak on your terminal, it is not recommended. In this article we will give you a series of reasons why you should think twice before installing the Jailbreak on your iPhone and iPad.
1. Commit your safety
One of the most serious consequences of installing the Jailbreak on an iPhone is that it compromises the security of your device. Apple has always focused on offering a user experience in which both privacy and security stand out. In fact, they release new updates and patches to correct possible breaches and malicious attacks. But the Jailbreak changes everything, altering the security layers of your device and making it vulnerable to malware, spyware and other viruses.
2. It is complex and difficult to install
We do not say that you are going to ruin your iPhone forever, but the installation of the Jailbreak can become very complex and convoluted, leading to possible problems and restorations. In fact, the creators of the Jailbreak always recommend making a backup before proceeding with the installation.
3. It is more difficult to install updates
Obviously, it is more difficult to install an update on a device with Jailbreak than on an iPhone or iPad without Jailbreak. If you visit the software updates section you will see how the system keeps loading without finding new updates. You will need to use iTunes to update.
4. You may block your device
There is an unfortunate collateral effect after installing the Jailbreak. It could block your iPhone and your iPad. This means that you will never be able to use it again. Sometimes, it happens after installing the Jailbreak, in other occasions it happens when trying to restore the device to eliminate the Jailbreak, and even other times it happens simply by downloading tweaks not compatible with your device.
5. Jailbreak does not cover the warranty
It is one of the most debated issues around the Jailbreak. Some users think that this is completely false, but the truth is that the Jailbreak makes your device no longer covers Apple’s warranty . So you can not repair your iPhone or iPad.
