    It is best not to jail-break. If you do, your warranty is voided and you can not update your software. Also, some jail-breaks cost money.

  • Jailbreaking by itself will not void your iOS device's warranty. If your iOS is harmedbecauseof jailbreaking, however, your warranty will be void.


  • Cydia allows you to install tweaks and apps that fall outside of the realm of typical Apple regulations, which can cause you to permanently harm your device. Always research apps and tweaks independently before downloading them.
