Jailbreaking is the act of changing the iPhone (or iPad) software to remove the restrictions and limitations imposed by Apple. The principal limitation is that software can only be installed from the App Store. With a jail broken phone you can install software from a rival to the App Store, and also manually using files downloaded from the internet.

Jailbreaking is different to iPhone unlocking. iPhones (like all mobile phones) that are sold as part of a contract are often locked to a particular network. This means that if you buy an iPhone from O2, for example, you have to use an O2 SIM card in it. The iPhone is ‘locked’ to that network.Unlocking the iPhone turns it from an iPhone that can only work on the O2 network to one that can work on any network. But you will still be running officially sanctioned iOS software, and still have the software limitations. (Unlocking is considered a breach of your mobile phone contract, incidentally.)

People usually take this step to take the full over their phone but my friend, not everything you think will work on your phone. Yes, your phone is not going store 1 TB of data neither you’ll be able to download all the apps for free.You must be thinking we have Cydia we can download anything for free. I completely agree with you but it might happen that the application which you on Cydia is not compatible with your iOS version. Instead, try out some other alternatives of App store where you get all the applications for free like the Aptoide for iOS. Here you’ll get all the application for free no need to jailbreak your device anymore.
