The Odyssey Team on Twitter and Reddit announced this week that their upcoming “Cheyote” jailbreak tool will for the first time jailbreak devices running iOS 15.

Sharing the news on Reddit, one of the developers involved in the tool said the jailbreak itself is “making good progress” and should be rolled out to the jailbreaking community in the near future.
If the claims are true, that would mean some of Apple’s latest devices like the iPhone 13 series and iPad mini 6 will be capable of being jailbroken for the first time, although there are still some limitations to do with OS versions.
According to the developers, the Cheyote tool will initially only work with iOS 15.0 to iOS 15.1.1, which was released in November last year. The group says they will continue to work to support versions up to iOS 15.4.1, but this is likely to take some time, since Apple has made the jailbreaking process a lot tougher in recent versions of its mobile operating system.
MacDailyNews Take: At this point, with current iOS customizability (and even more coming with iOS 16), jailbreaking is more trouble than it’s worth.
