Have you installed iOS 15 on your iPhone or do you plan to do so in the coming days? But you’re wondering if you’ll be able to jailbreak your iPhone after that? Read below to find out why an iOS 15 jailbreak could take a while to become available.
It has become a challenge to jailbreak recent releases of iOS, which is evident from the fact that there is no jailbreak tool for iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.8 for newer iPhones. This is also why jailbreak developers are reluctant to speak publicly about exploitation and release a jailbreak tool for the first few versions of a larger edition of iOS, as Apple will then patch it up in the next release.
This basically means that the chances of releasing the iOS 15 jailbreak are pretty low. More importantly, Apple has made jailbreaking much harder in iOS 15. Any modifications to the root system of the OS files will prevent your iPhone from starting, which means that every jailbreak must now be rootless and not modify any system files.
The current jailbreak bootstraps assumes that writing to the root system of the files is fine and not working on iOS 15, including what checkra1n uses. (Procursus, bootstrap for Taurine / Odysseyra1n, has a rootless branch in progress)

It seems that jailbreak developers will have to develop a new approach to developing their iOS 15 jailbreaking tool, which depends on finding security exploits in the OS.
iOS 15.1 Jailbreak status
Using the iOS 15.1 kernel has raised hopes in the iOS 15.1 jailbreak. The exploitation was demonstrated by a security researcher on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It has been confirmed that it is possible to use exploitation to write to the kernel memory, which is necessary for jailbreaking. However, with a few new security measures in iOS 15, using this kernel exploitation and jailbreaking for iOS 15 – iOS 15.1 will be more complex than before.
If you already have a jailbreak iPhone that uses iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 and appreciate your jailbroken setting too much, you should stick to it. This is because the chances that the iOS 15 jailbreak will be released soon are very small. If you find all the new features in iOS 15 more tempting, consider jumping, because the improvements are definitely worth it.
