Even Google is helping Apple secure iOS 11 now
Just as iPhone jailbreaking appeared poised to take its last breath, a report from Motherboard last week revealed that the first publicly available iOS 11 jailbreak is in the works -- and Google is behind it. According to the report, Ian Beer -- a security researcher from Google's Project Zero -- discovered a series of exploits in iOS 11.1.2, many of which were patched in 11.2. But using those exploits, a bonafide iOS 11 jailbreak might finally be possible.
Although we're still waiting for the jailbreak, Beer on Monday shared new details about the exploit on Twitter and even attached the exploit on a Chromium forum thread. He also claimed that the "tfp0" -- which allows users to take control of the operating system's core -- "should work for all devices."
