Apple releases iOS 13.5.1 with major security improvements: no more jailbreak

A few weeks ago, Apple released a new version of iOS known as 13.5, and dubbed by some as the “coronavirus update”. This update brought a series of improvements and new features that, among other things, allow health authorities to have a much more effective control of possible infections by COVID-19 thanks to the new contact tracking API developed by Apple and Google. However, in the rush it seems that some loose ends were left behind.

At the same time that they brought this update to the users, the community had already achieved the jailbreak to all the devices compatible with it. A security vulnerability in the iOS kernel allowed all devices to access this additional privilege level, even with the latest version of the system. For this reason, from Apple has rushed to release iOS 13.5.1 , which resolves this vulnerability and prevents this method of jailbreak from being used.

As for the other changes in this update, none of them should be noticeable. As this is a bug fix update, we should not expect any major improvements or new developments, in fact the change log only indicates that this is a major security update. And, of course, we recommend installing it on all our devices , to keep them protected against potential threats.
