But, have you asked any experienced IOS users who had previously done this? They won’t dare to take this step again because they know what actually happens once you jailbreak your iPhone. In my opinion, before taking this step you should definitely think about the pros and cons of doing it and also think about you want to do it.

Think about the alternatives, do you really need to do this? In this article, we’ll talk about reasons why should not jailbreak your iOS.

Let’s get started.

5 Reasons why you should not Jailbreak your iOS

Void Warranty

This is a no brainer, every one of us knows this is going to happen when you decide to jailbreak your iOS and there is no way out of it. If anything goes wrong in this process then don’t expect a sympathetic behavior from the Apple store. They won’t even consider your phone if your iOS is jailbroken.

So figure out are you ready for this? Will it be okay for you if anything goes wrong?

Of course, you can re-jailbreak your phone any day but yes once you do it your phone will be back to it warranty but know you’ll lose your jailbroken version on your iOS.

Don’t expect everything to work

People usually take this step to take the full over their phone but my friend, not everything you think will work on your phone. Yes, your phone is not going store 1 TB of data neither you’ll be able to download all the apps for free.

You must be thinking we have Cydia we can download anything for free. I completely agree with you but it might happen that the application which you on Cydia is not compatible with your iOS version. Instead, try out some other alternatives of App store where you get all the applications for free like the Aptoide for iOS. Here you’ll get all the application for free no need to jailbreak your device anymore.

iOS Instability

Be ready for this now your phone can reboot anytime and can even enter into safe mode. Chances are your battery might also drain quickly and your phone heats up often due to lot of processing power.

A user known with this issue will solve it easily but if you are a novice and don’t know how to deal with it then it might be a daunting day for you.

Security Issues

This is the most vulnerable problem that can ever happen to your phone one you jailbreak your iOS. Macrumors noticed that hackers try to access also your personal information via your phone. Because now your phone is prone to errors and might react weirdly.

No Mac Support

If you are a Mac user you are dead because you can’t jailbreak your iOS from Mac for that you need a Windows pc.

Of course, you can install a virtual software on your Mac which will help you solve this issue but I personally don’t recommend it to novice users as it can be difficult for them.

Wrap Up

I hope this article on not to jailbreak your iOS helps you take your final decision whether to take this step or not and if yes why?

Let me know in the comments section whether you are going to jailbreak or not? I’d love to hear from you guys! Also, if you have any doubts about the process do let me know and I’d reply as soon as I can.
