New Unc0ver jailbreak can jailbreak Apple's iOS 13.5

The jailbreak released by the uncover team supports all iPhones that run iOS 11 and above, including the latest version of the iPhone that is iOS 13.5, which was released earlier this week. But now, it can offer unrestricted access to software for the iPhone 11, iPhone SE, and the latest iPad Pros.

For the moment, you can blame it on the Apple servers that are blocking iOS from confirming that you've already purchased the app. With this tool, you can even unlock the latest model of iPhone running on iOS 13.5. Considering that what was leaked was an early internal build, Apple is likely to have removed security loopholes and might even discard some of the features present on the leaked codes.

Apparently hacker Pwn20wnd (who is a member of UncOver) found an undetected kernel vulnerability that made the jailbreak possible.

Lead developer Pwn20wnd spoke to Wired to explain that the jailbreak versions are stable and do not prevent users from accessing Apple services like iCloud, Apple Pay, or iMessage.

It's also possible that this could have been a problem on Apple's end that's only coincidental with the release of iOS 13.5, as there have been a few reports of users having this issue on iOS 13.4.1 as well.

A section affected users suggest that this issue could be caused by Apple as the company tries to fix a previously reported issue.

"This jailbreak basically just adds exceptions to existing rules". Since Apple's Family Sharing only lets you share purchases among those who are now in the same Family Sharing group, this makes sense. "It only allows reading new jailbreak files and parts of the file system that do not contain user data". We won't tell you how to do it, and most people probably shouldn't do it in the first place.
