Only a few days have passed since the announcement of the new Apple mobile operating system, and hackers from the checkra1n team have already been able to successfully jailbreak the first beta version of iOS 14.
An already proven vulnerability called checkm8 was used for hacking. It is present on all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, which are based on processors from Apple A5 to Apple A11. The hackers tested their jailbreak method on an iPhone X running iOS 14 Beta 1. The jailbreak was installed without any problems. The hackers also demonstrated a working Cydia store.
Work on a public version of the iOS 14 jailbreak tool is already underway. At the same time, the Cupertinians are unlikely to be able to somehow influence this process. The checkm8 vulnerability is hardware, not software, and cannot be fixed with security patches. The only downside to this exploit is that it is missing on the newer iPhone and iPad models.
It is possible that in the future the Unc0ver team will present their own way to jailbreak iOS 14. Recall that not so long ago, this hacking team released a tool that allows you to jailbreak iOS 13.5. Moreover, all Apple mobile devices, including the newest iPhone and iPad models, can be hacked. However, in iOS 13.5.1, Apple patched the vulnerability exploited by the hackers.
