A renowned iPhone hacking team has released a new “jailbreak” tool that unlocks every iPhone, even the most recent models running the latest iOS 13.5.
一个著名的iPhone黑客团队发布了新的“越狱”工具,能解锁所有iPhone,甚至连运行最新的iOS 13.5系统的新出的机型都可以。

For as long as Apple has kept up its “walled garden” approach to iPhones by only allowing apps and customizations that it approves, hackers have tried to break free from what they call the “jail,” hence the name “jailbreak.”
苹果公司一直采用 “围墙花园”方式,只允许获得批准的应用和自定义进入iPhone,黑客们也一直在努力打破他们所谓的“监狱”的束缚,故而称之为“越狱”。

Hackers do this by finding a previously undisclosed vulnerability in iOS that break through some of the many restrictions that Apple puts in place to prevent access to the underlying software. Apple says it does this for security.

But jailbreakers say breaking through those restrictions allows them to customize their iPhones more than they would otherwise, in a way that most Android users are already accustomed to.

The jailbreak, released by the unc0ver team, supports all iPhones that run iOS 11 and above, including up to iOS 13.5, which Apple released this week.

Details of the vulnerability that the hackers used to build the jailbreak aren’t known, but it’s not expected to last forever. Just as jailbreakers work to find a way in, Apple works fast to patch the flaws and close the jailbreak.

Security experts typically advise iPhone users against jailbreaking, because breaking out of the “walled garden” vastly increases the surface area for new vulnerabilities to exist and to be found.

The jailbreak comes at a time where the shine is wearing off of Apple’s typically strong security image. Last week, Zerodium, a broker for exploits, said it would no longer buy certain iPhone vulnerabilities because there were too many of them. Motherboard reported this week that hackers got their hands on a pre-release version of the upcoming iOS 14 release several months ago.
此次越狱事件正值苹果强大的安全形象受损之际。上周漏洞交易平台Zerodium说不再购买某些iPhone漏洞,因为漏洞太多。Motherboard本周报告说几个月前黑客拿到了即将发布的iOS 14的预发布版本。
