Apple has released the iOS 12.1 Developer Beta sooner than we thought. The update is available to download right now through the developer console OR directly on your iOS devices if you’ve got the iOS 12.1 Beta Profile installed. You can now jailbreak iOS 12.1. The process is not completely stable, not really reliable and definitely not for beginners, but it’s there. How exciting is that? Major, major hats off to Pangu and Saurik for collaborating on this new jailbreak. It benefits everybody when we work together like this. Fantastic, as we said above, the iOS 12.1 jailbreak is finicky and hard to use. Here’s what we know so far and how to use it. If you prefer to update your iPhone to developer beta releases using IPSW firmware files, we got your covered. Grab the iOS 12.1 IPSW files from the link below and manually install the update using iTunes on your computer.
Now that you’ve set up your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max with the best apps, it’s time to think about accessories. If you were not able to successfully jailbreak your device, then you can try again using Pangu 12.1 jailbreak. You can download it from our Download Pangu Jailbreak page. Every iPhone needs its support system. It can be a case, a screen protector, or a car mount. Those are the basics but if you want to take your iPhone experience to a whole new level, we recommend buying a stellar pair of wireless headphones and a wireless or fast charger.

Your iPhone XS, XR or XS Max is getting too hot to handle? That’s okay. This thing is hot. But let’s see how we can treat it right, so it doesn’t blow you away. Jokes apart, if your iPhone is running hot a lot lately, you need to fix the problem before it hurts the battery health. Pangu has released a jailbreak of iOS 12.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch; however, potential jailbreakers should be warned that the jailbreak requires your Apple ID login credentials.
The PP Helper application used to jailbreak iOS 12.1 through 12.1.3 claims that your credentials will not be stored. Your email and password are used to generate a developer profile needed to run the PP app on your iOS 12.1 devices; however, we strongly suggest not providing this information to any third party EVER. Since the bug fixes seem to be related to the jailbreaking process, we doubt Pangu team will release a Cydia Package. Did you have problems jailbreaking your iOS device on iOS 12.1 To iOS 12.1.3? Let us know if Pangu fixes the issue.
