Apple has rolled out its latest operating system, the iOS 13.1.1 for all compatible iPhone and iPod Touch models, and also iPadOS 13.1.1 for all corresponding iPad models. The most recent releases were made available just days after Apple bought iOS 13.1 and the first iteration of iPadOS.
Both iOS 13.1.1 and iPadOS 13.1.1 have basically fixed the bug that was enabling third-party keyboards to obtain full access without needing any user permissions. There were also made some performance improvements and a few other weaknesses were patched.
Even so, a developer has released a new exploit that allegedly exists in the new iOS 13.1.1, The exploit enables iPhone models based on up to A11 bionic SoC to be jailbroken.
iOS 13.1.1 Update Fixes Numerous Issues
According to the official changelog, iOS 13.1.1 fixes issues that could prevent iPhone models restoring from backup. The new update also patches a battery-draining problem and fixes an issue where Safari suggestions were re-enabled even after disabling them.
Especially on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, the new release solves a problem that could affect the recognition of Siri requests. The latest iOS version also improves Reminders by fixing an issue that could have led to slow syncing.
iPadOS 13.1.1 Update Brings Improvements for the iPad
The changelog of iPadOS 13.1.1 notes the incorporation of numerous bug fixes and performance improvements for the iPad. A significant change that both updates bring is the fix for the security issue that occurred in iOS 13 and the first variant of iPadOS. The weakness allowed third-party keyboards to gain full access to the device.
Even though Apple has tried to fix all the major bugs through iOS 13.1.1, a security researcher and developer going by the name of axi0mX on Twitter has released an exploit that could bring severe damage to Apple.
The exploit was called ‘checkm8,’ and it works even on Apple’s latest software version. It brings the possibility of jailbreaking all iPhone models that run up to A11 Bionic SoC. The developer uploaded a video that shows an iPhone X starting up in verbose mode. He also explained it took only two seconds to jailbreak the iPhone with checkm8.
