Apple releases new iOS update with fixes for new jailbreak bug

Apple has released iOS 13.5.1 update with an important change that patches the vulnerability used by the Unc0ver jailbreak tool which was released last week and allegedly works on all recent versions of iOS, including iOS 13.5.

Jailbreaking an iPhone gives users root access to the entire iPhone OS, allowing them to install tweaks and other apps outside of Apple’s App Store.

The updates are available on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the updates, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

“This update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users,” the company said in a statement.

Apple said that the new iOS 13.5.1 update also comes with new Memoji stickers and other bug fixes and improvements.

In addition to iOS 13.5.1 and iPadOS 13.5.1, Apple is releasing watchOS 6.2.6 and updates for HomePod and Apple TV, 9to5Mac reports.

To recall, Apple released iOS 13.5 last month with features such as Exposure Notification API.

The update also made it easier to unlock iPhone models with Face ID even wearing a mask. There were also enhancements for FaceTime group calls and Apple Music.
