Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 line last month, and the device is now reaching the first customers who have ordered one of the four models available in the series.
The iPhone 13 Pro is unsurprisingly one of the best-selling setups this year, and it turns out it’s the first iPhone 13 to get a jailbreak as well.
Not publicly available, of course, but the iPhone 13 Pro was recently unlocked by Team Pangu during the 2021 Tianfu Cup.
If Team Pangu sounds familiar to you, it’s because the group was responsible for some of the most popular jailbreaks back when such a thing was very common in the Apple user base. The latest jailbreak released by Pangu was aimed at iOS 9, and since then the group has mainly focused on breaking into iPhones without sharing any details online.
In other words, the Pangu team most likely reported their findings to Apple directly, with the company ultimately fixing them and making it even more difficult to jailbreak an iPhone.
Good news and bad news
Team Pangu being able to jailbreak the iPhone 13 Pro comes both good news and bad news.
The bad news, as I said before, is that the team has no plans to release a public tool, which means Apple itself could very well take a look at the set and finish. by correcting the exploit used for the assembly.
The good news is that jailbreaking the iPhone 13 Pro is entirely possible, so it’s probably only a matter of time until someone else comes up with a similar solution to unlock the iPhone 13 Pro. device. Of course, Apple knowing this and fixing the flaw could make it more difficult on an up-to-date device.
