Jailbreaking is the legal process of removing restrictions imposed by Apple’s operating system, so you can add anything from themes to make your UI look better, to tweaks to get your iPhone running more how you want it to. The jailbreak for iOS 9 was released earlier this month, unfortunately it was only for windows. Thankfully, Pangu have now released their jailbreak for Mac as well.
The jailbreak works the same as it does on Windows, the process is pretty straightforward, but we’ll go through it with you right now.
You will need to be on iOS 9.0.2 or below though, so if you upgraded to 9.1 last week, you’re out of luck on the jailbreak.
