An iOS 13.5 jailbreak could be out soon due to a kernel vulnerability. The exploit may patch all iOS version signed devices.
iOS 13.5 update does not exempt any Apple customer from jailbreaking. The recently revealed kernel exploit revealed that no iOS version signed device is indispensable from the attack.

unc0ver team, a known group of jailbreakers announced on Wednesday that an iOS 13.5 jailbreak will be out soon. The team made the announcement through a Twitter post that caught the attention of more than 4,000 Twitter users.

The Twitter update suggested all iOS device holders update their operating systems to iOS 13.5. The team closed with the instruction telling Apple customers to stay at watch for the latest update on the jailbreak and to check their official website for progress.
Once the unc0ver 5.0.0 rolls out in public, all devices running iOS 13.5 devices are prone to jailbreaking. This means that the latest release of Apple devices such as iPhone SE, iPhone 11, and 2020 iPad Pro can be jailbroken as well.
Unc0ver 5.0.0 jailbreaking tool covers more platforms
Reports suggest that once unc0ver 5.0.0 is released; it could a big step for the jailbreaking community. Currently the latest jailbreak tool released is the one based on checkm8 exploit.
The Checkra1n jailbreak tool patches all devices running on the A11 Bionic chip only. The said processor runs the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
This means that the Checkra1n jailbreak tool cannot patch the most recent Apple devices such as iPhone SE, iPhone 11, and 2020 iPad Pro. The said tool also restricts jailbreakers to macOS alone as it cannot run on other operating systems.
Unc0ver 5.0.0 on the other hand will give jailbreakers a wider scope of patching. The jailbreaking tool may also patch macOS, Windows, and Linux running devices.
As soon as the latest jailbreaking tool launches, iOS 13.5 software restrictions on Apple devices will be taken down. This means that the latest update on Apple’s operating system will no longer be able to keep users from installing non-App Store applications.
Unc0ver did not issue any official date of release yet. However, the team’s official website hints that iOS 13.5 updated device holders may soon modify their entire system through the upcoming jailbreak.
