Chimera Jailbreak for iOS 12


Chimera Jailbreak – Apple unveiled iOS 12, the next major iOS software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at WWDC 2018 in June, which includes several new features and enhancements. Some of the new iOS 12 features include improved performance, Memoji which allows users to quickly turn themselves into an Animoji with a variety of customization options as well, improvements to the Photos app, Siri Shortcuts which will give automation workflows to users and lots more.

But despite the New iOS 12 Features and enhancements, there are still good reasons to jailbreak iOS 12 such as installing iFile, which grants you access to the file system, tweaks like Message Customizer that lets you customize each aspect of the Messages app, and ability to lock apps and folders using Touch ID and lots more.

You can jailbreak iOS 12 using chimera jailbreak. Chimera jailbreak underpins all iOS 12 compatible devices (A7 – A12/A12X including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and 2018 iPad Pro) on iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2, and it also supports A7 – A11 devices on iOS 12.2 except for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and 2018 iPad Pro.
