KeenLab has jailbroken the new iPhone XS Max running iOS 12.1.

Liang Chen, a member of the Keen Security Lab, revealed the accomplishment on Twitter and announced he would be presenting the pwn at POC 2018.

iOS 12.1 + A12 == the end of iOS war? I will be presenting at POC 2018 this Friday with latest iPhone XS Max pwn.

Unfortunately, we don't expect that Chen will release this jailbreak publicly. The Tencent Keen Security Lab was established in January 2016 to focus on the security research of mainstream PC/Mobile operating systems, applications, cloud computing technologies, IOT smart devices, etc. As part of Tencent Security their research is applied to Tencent's products and technologies.

You can check out the POC 2018 schedule here. Chen's presentation is at 16:30 - 17:30 on November 9th.

I think data and security companies earn from Apple if they shared the Jailbreak with Apple. If it is by an underground jailbreaker, you will get a chance to install it in your phone because they post it publicly. There is no chance this will come out since it is said in the article it was from Tencent.

At least this proves that iOS 12 is jailbreakable. Meanwhile I’m installing the tvOS beta profile on my devices to be extra safe. Not really missing the jailbreak for now cuz iOS 12 rocks! Far better than the terrible iOS 11.

You upgrading to 12.1?

It annoys me people come out with these jailbreaks but it’s MONTHS to see something released to the public, when people already updated their software. What do I care if they can jailbreak a device? Release it or keep it shut.
