Jailbreak is one such thing that helps you gain control over your iPhone or iPad back from Apple. It allows you to do a lot of things which are originally restricted by Apple. It is always fun to Jailbreak your iPhone or iPad and install a lot tweaks on it.
Jailbreak Tweaks are applications which you download from Cydia and later helps you change settings, looks and lot more. If this isn’t making sense for you, let me start explaining from the beginning.
What is Jailbreak?
Jailbreak is a term used for a process which allows one to install un-official files on your iPhone. Originally Apple restricts and doesn’t allow users to install their own build files and applications. But once you Jailbreak your iPhone these all restrictions are broken. There is no control of Apple on your iPhone.
You are the one who solely controls the iPhone now. If you wish to change anything, by anything i literally mean anything right from the Booting Logo to your Volume HUD animation, you can control everything. To gain such powers you need to Jailbreak your iPhone.
Why to Jailbreak in 2019?
