Great news for iPhone users, especially who like tweaking the phone or who are using a locked iPhone version, @pwn20wnd team has just updated the latest the Unc0ver 3.5.0 build, which supports jailbreaking iOS 12.4, currently the latest iOS firmware.
This is super exciting news for iOS users. It’s the first time a latest iOS version has been jailbroken, and the tool is publicized.
Although Unc0ver is still a semi-tethered jailbreak tool, it’s pretty easy to jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 12.4 version. You even do not need a computer to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad.
@pwn20wnd team has released Unc0ver 3.7.0 update that supports jailbreaking iOS devices running on A12X Bionic chipset including: iPhone XS Max, iPhone Xs, iPhone XR, iPad Pro. Users who are using those devices, can now jailbreak their phone running iOS 12.4.
Unc0ver 3.7.0 tool works with the following iPhone & iPad models running iOS 12-iOS 12.4:

- iPhone 8 / 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XS Max/ XS/ XR

While you can jailbreak iOS 12.4 version with Unc0ver, it does not support the iOS 12.3 version. So if your device is running on iOS 12.3, you need to update iOS 12.4 first before the jailbreak.
Apple still allows signing iOS 12.4, so even when you have updated to iOS 13 beta, you can still downgrade back to this iOS version.
- Remove any iOS 12/13 beta OTA update on your phone by heading to Settings > Storage. Once done, reboot your iPhone/iPad before attempting the jailbreak.
- Unc0ver jailbreak supports Cydia.
- Make sure to create a backup of your data to avoid something going wrong.
