For the last few iOS releases, jailbreaks were always released a few months after the version(s) they support were made public with the exception of iOS 12.4 due to a blunder from Apple. However, things are just about to change as checkra1n, a jailbreak for iOS 13, will be coming next week!

According to numerous tweets, various jailbreak community veterans including xerub, siguza and ih8snow worked on making checkra1n with Luca Todesco (@qwertyoruiopz) leading the whole effort meaning that the jailbreak will doubtlessly be of very high quality.
Over the last few weeks, there have been numerous reports of progress being made with the jailbreak and in terms of features, these can be summed up as:

  • The jailbreak has been demonstrated running on iOS 13.1.2, 13.1.3 and even 13.2
    • Presumably, the jailbreak will also support future versions of iOS 13 and maybe even other versions of iOS as it uses an unpatchable bug found in the boot code which is flashed at the factory and read-only

  • When you install checkra1n, an application for managing it is added to your home screen and this presumably lets you install the package manager of your choice
    • From what?s currently known, the package managers provided include Cydia, Zebra (an package manager that takes many cues from Cydia) and Installer 5
