Why Jailbreak iOS Device?
Those who are not familiar with the iOS jailbreak concept ask what it means to jailbreak Apple iPhone or iPad? Well, it’s one way of liberating your iOS device from Apple’s restriction on the use of its mobile firmware. Once the jailbreak is enabled, the user is free to download applications and games from third-party developers outside of the App Store.
In other words, jailbreak iOS is just like rooting an Android device to gain access to the root directory of the Linux system.
This makes it possible to use apps that would otherwise not be allowed to run by the device manufacturer. Moreover, Jailbreaking iPhone or iPad lets you install tools that add new features to the UI and in the operating system.
On a jailbroken device, you can make changes to the interface, icon style, colors, as well as get additional settings among other benefits that come with it.
Jailbreak Tweaks perform a variety of functions, including improving battery life, boost default sound level, and much more.

Issues With iOS Jailbreak
Manufacturers don’t usually recommend going down the jailbreak route due to security reasons and hence block official firmware and security updates for such devices.
This is why jailbreak process is considered unsafe as it can leave the door open for dodgy actors to gain entry into the root directory through their non-approved apps. This encourages all sorts of unauthorized developers to exploit system-level vulnerabilities to damage the integrity of your handheld device. And not to mention that the moment jailbreak activates the official Apple Care warranty linked to that particular device gets immediately revoked. So any further damage won’t be fixed through the official repair program. Therefore, you may experiment all you want but do so at your own risk.
