Update ( 8th Oct 2018 )
iOS 12 is certainly attracting attention from the jailbreak developers and now we have more good news for the jailbreak community.
Popular security worker and jailbreak developer Luca Todesco has confirmed that he has jailbroken an iPhone XS Max on iOS 12.
Pangu jailbreak team already confirmed in September that they managed to jailbreak iOS 12 on the XS; Todesco wanted to prove that it would still work on the XS Max and it does.
According to tweets posted under his Twitter handle of ( qwertyoruiop ) , Todesco has confirmed that he has not only managed to jailbreak the iPhone XS Max, he has also restored it back to stock iOS 12 successfully and is now using the device as his main go-to iPhone.
On being asked whether he would be releasing an iOS 12 jailbreak to the public, the developer declined to answer; this is normal for Todesco as he tends to jailbreak as part of iOS security work and for his own devices only.
Regardless, with so much attention on iOS 12, we would be unlucky not to see some kind of jailbreak in the near future.
