How to jailbreak the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR with iOS 12

There is no doubt that the jailbreak had its great moment a few years ago, the creator of Cydia himself has recognized it, and that it is currently in a downward spiral, however that does not mean that there are not users interested in making it . The jailbreak gives you the ability to install modifications on iOS and that is something that many users like.

A few months ago the jailbreak was available for iOS 12, however the latest Apple devices were not compatible with this tool, until today. The team in charge of the popular Electra tool has surprised everyone by launching Chimera, an app capable of jailbreak to devices with the A12 Bionic processor among them the iPhone XS and XR and the new iPad.
