Part 2: Reasons Why Not Jailbreak Your iPhone

The next part I would like to tell you something about jailbreak.


We don’t suggest you to make a jailbreak on your iPhone, for there will face a series of problems or risks.

1. Once you jailbreak your iPhone, Apple will no longer provide you with warranty service. And Apple retailers are unlikely to sympathize with you if there any problems occur.


2. Jailbreaking your iPhone will make your iPhone not as safe as protected by Apple’s wall before and bring you to a place that is somewhat exciting but sometimes probably dangerous because your iPhone would be freely filled with various kinds of good apps and bad apps, crashy apps and malware, which is similar with Android phone.


3. Your iPhone can work outstandingly without being jailbroken. The performance is good enough for the most users. Jailbreak is something redundant.


4. It is very troublesome to update your jailbroken iPhone breaking your iPhone or taking a long time to make the update available.


5. While it is possible to modify your iPhone into a very compelling core voice, this will have unintended outcomes. Your iPhone may crash more frequently, some features and applications cannot work any longer as they should originally, and your battery life will be greatly reduced.


6. The last but not least, you may be faced with risk of data loss.
