If you have a device running iOS 9, it is quite possible that you might be looking for a way to jailbreak your device without using a computer. You’d know that iOS 9 jailbreak is around but you may not have a way to jailbreaking your device the way you want. Well, the good news for you is that it is quite possible now as you can use Safari on your iOS device for downloading the Cydia app icon and then use it as a jailbroken device. But before we get on with the jailbreak process, why not first take a look at what jailbreaking is all about and why do you need it in the first place.
What Is Jailbreaking?
Jailbreaking is a simple concept of liberating your iOS device of all its limitations. Normally the limitations are in place on the apps and software that you can install on your device. Apple only allows you to install the apps from its official App Store and this means there are a lot of useful apps and tweaks that you will miss out on. This limitation is, basically, implemented just to ensure that iOS users may not end up installing spammy apps and malicious software. However, not all apps and tweaks available outside App Store are like that. There are lots of useful tweaks and apps available that do nothing but to expand the functionality of your iOS device and make your experience worthwhile.
To let your device allow for installing those useful apps and tweaks outside App Store, you have to jailbreak it. Jailbreaking gives you access to another App Store with the name Cydia that gives you access to everything you need. However, you just need to be a bit cautions to ensure your device’s safety and only install apps and tweaks from legit sources. You can go for IOS 9.2.1 JAILBREAK, for instance, and tweak things around by downloading your desired apps and adding functionality to your iOS device. You will surely love the new experience with all the liberty of installing just about anything to your iOS device.
