Unc0ver 5.2.0 is the latest version of this famous Jailbreak tool. It’s coming out the Unc0ver 4.3.1 which supports the iOS versions up to iOS 13.3 only. The Unc0ver 5.0 is based on the 0day exploit. For those who have no idea, the 0day is a software/hardware vulnerability that is found only once the product is shipped. The announcement for this latest Unc0ver version was made by its developer pwn20wnd on his official Twitter account.

After days of the announcement, the developer had put a timer on his website and began the countdown a couple of hours ago. The Unc0ver 5.0 is finally here.
