iOS 16 Jailbreak Status
As previously stated, Apple is making it increasingly challenging to jailbreak iPhones. For iOS 15, there was no jailbreak available. Furthermore, if jailbreaks become available on the most recent version of iOS 16, the company will patch it in the next update. In short, Apple does not want its customers to jailbreak their iPhones. This is highly inconvenient if you intend to jailbreak your iPhone.
Earlier, the dangered wolf on Twitter shared an update regarding jailbreaking on the latest iOS versions. He framed a tweet and said that “iOS 15 has a trick up its sleeve to make jailbreaking much harder: They made the root file system sealed, so modifying it directly would make your device unbootable. Every jailbreak must now be rootless and not modify OS files.
However, this doesn’t mean the end of iOS 16 jailbreaking entirely. It just means jailbreaks need to be built differently.

Is it Possible to Jailbreak iOS 16?
Attempting to jailbreak your iPhone running the latest iOS 16 will render the device unbootable. So, if you intend to jailbreak your iPhone in the coming months, we advise you not to update it to the most recent iOS versions. Any changes to the OS’s root filesystem will prevent your iPhone from booting, so any jailbreak must now be rootless and not modify any system files. But, if you want to jailbreak your iPhone, you should use an older version of iOS.
Disclaimer: The Jailbreak process is not supported by Apple. Jailbreaking an iPhone voids its warranty. GizPie will not be responsible for any bricking/damage to your device while/after using Jailbreaking tool/software.
