What is jailbreaking?

Jailbreaking is the process by which Apple's operating systems are modified to remove restrictions and give greater user control over the device. These modifications typically allow running unsigned code, as well as reading and writing to the root filesystem, both of which are normally prevented by Apple. The increased privileges permit customisations and unfettered app installation which are not available to users with a stock device. Jailbreaking is most popular on, and most associated with, Apple's mobile operating systems iOS and iPadOS, though it also exists in various forms on tvOS, watchOS, macOS, and audioOS.

Typically, jailbreaking adds an unofficial installer to your device which lets you download 3rd-party applications, tweaks, and extensions that are not available through the App Store. These packages open up endless possibilities to do things on your device that a non-jailbroken one would never be able to do. The most famous and oldest of these installers is called Cydia. Competing and rapidly growing alternatives to Cydia now exist, such as Zebra and Sileo.

Cydia and other package managers offer tweaks which can be used to customize the look, feel, behavior, and capabilities of your device in a myriad of different ways, bypass limitations set in place by Apple and carriers, connect to other devices remotely, and generally let you unlock your device's full potential.

Jailbreaking is about liberating your devices from Apple's grasp, to let you use the products you paid for in any way you want.

What are the benefits of jailbreaking?

The primary reason that people jailbreak is to install third-party applications and tweaks that Apple couldn't or wouldn't approve in the App Store. There are hundreds of apps that don't meet Apple's guidelines, or that have capabilities Apple's App Store guidelines forbid. Tweaks don't exist on the App Store at all, as they aren't applications. They are extensions, additions, or adjustments to already-installed applications, and to the operating system itself.
