iOS 12.4 Beta Busted By iOS 12.4 Jailbreak Tool Called Alpha Exploits
A new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool was developed by a popular hacker. On his Twitter account, iBSparkes shared proof of his ground-breaking achievement to the community. It is worth noting that before the Beta version of the latest iOS build was rolled out, many speculated that it will be a tough feat to jailbreak it. However, it appears that iBSparkes has found a way to exploit the OS which is currently on its Beta phase.
iOS 12.4 Beta Jailbreak Tool
As a proof of his most recent achievement, the popular hacker shared on his Twitter account a screenshot showing an iPhone SE running on iOS 12.4 Beta along with the Cydia package manager. This only means that iBSparkes has an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool capable of exploiting the latest iOS build.
It also means that his latest iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool can work with all versions (un-jailbroken) of iOS ranging from 12.2 to 12.4. The jailbreak tool creator named his Apple exploit as Alpha since the term connotes that he was the first to break the latest build while it is still on its Beta phase. So far, iBSparkes has not yet shown any indications of when he is going to release his latest exploit tool.
iBSparkes' latest achievement is a testament that the iOS software is still susceptible to exploits despite the effort the Cupertino-based tech giant has been putting to make it jailbreak-secure. The iOS 12.4 beta Jailbreak tool is also good news for users who prefer to customize their mobile devices.

While it is good to know that there is an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool, it is not an indication that there will be a public jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 build when it is through with its Beta phase and gets officially released. Based on the previous releases, the jailbreak for the iOS 12.4 could be available after the release of iOS 13. This could be a long time but the current status of iOS 12.4, which is still on its beta phase, must be considered. The Cupertino tech giant will not be happy to hear about a new iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool because this will only prove that their iOS has vulnerabilities. But, it could also help Apple to find these vulnerabilities and use it to further improve its upcoming OS builds. Meanwhile, iBSparkes recently hinted that he could be working on an iOS jailbreak tool.

Apple is slated to release the final version of iOS 13 on September 2019. With the latest news about an iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool and a potential iOS 13 jailbreak tool, the company has ample time to find and patch these exploited vulnerabilities that made the creation of the iOS 12.4 Jailbreak tool possible.
