How to Jailbreak iOS 13.5.5 Beta with Unc0ver

June 18, 2020

Apple released iOS 13.5.1 to the public on the 1st of June, 2020. With this released Apple stopped signing iOS 13.5 which was released on 20th of May, 2020.

The thing that we can note here is iOS 13.5 can be jailbroken by Unc0ver as iOS 13.5 contains 0day security vulnerability. And also iOS 13.5.5 beta 1 release, (and later renamed to 13.6 beta). It also presents this security vulnerability issue so we can jailbreak iOS 13.5.5 beta 1 with Unc0ver jailbreak.

So Unc0ver v5.2.0 released with,

  • Enable iOS 13.5.5~b1 support
  • Fix a logic bug in disabling auto-updates
  • Update bundled Cydia to fix crashes on iOS 13.5 with Hardware Keyboard enabled

With the release of iOS 13.6 beta 2, it seems like this 0-day exploit has been fixed. But you can still try the unc0ver exploit on iOS 13.5.5 beta 1 as it is still signed by Apple. According to Unc0ver, this is the latest signed iOS version which is compatible with Unc0ver jailbreak.
