Are Jailbreaking Benefits Better Than Before?
No, although it may seem so. Sure, the process is not as dangerous as it used to be, and there are a growing number of options that jailbreaking provides. Jailbreak app stores like Cydia are also safer places these days, and it’s easier to ascertain that the apps you are getting are okay to use and have a strong history of updates to support them.
However, jailbreaking doesn’t necessarily offer better benefits than before, in the sense that a lot of popular features have been included in current versions of iOS.
Apple has a habit of looking at the most desired features on jailbroken iPhones, and including those in future iOS updates. That means that many of the past reasons people had for jailbreaking are no longer necessary since stock iPhones now have them – and the trend is likely to continue.
Also, don’t forget new benefits like the Apple Card and other various Apple services. These services and related content will be denied to those who end up with jailbroken iPhones, which means you risk missing out on most of the Apple world and all of its unique content.
Ultimately, if you’re thinking about jailbreaking your iPhone in 2019, we suggest you take a very close look at iOS 13 when it comes out (sporting Dark Mode and a lot of other new features) to see if it satisfies your need for extra features.
