The update changelog itself on devices doesn't say much beyond the usual security update.

Apple is rolling out iOS 13.5.1 update for its iPhone users.

Do you use Microsoft Whiteboard on your iPad or iPhone and does this update affect you? Apple was speculated by the hacking team to take two to three weeks to patch the vulnerability. Apple does appear to have skipped through several release version numbers with iOS and iPadOS.

That's exactly what jailbreaking utility unc0ver 5.0.1 does.

Description: A memory consumption issue was addressed with improved memory handling.

England's Premier League and Italy's Serie A are scheduled to return in June as well. It also led to several leagues being suspended.

In addition to iOS 13.5.1 and iPadOS 13.5.1, Apple is releasing watchOS 6.2.6 and updates for HomePod and Apple TV, 9to5Mac reports.

Recent figures published by Apple found that 94 percent of iPhones now run on iOS 12 or iOS 13, meaning the jailbreak kit could have affected almost all of its phones in circulation.

The Unc0ver jailbreak, as noted by Wired, is notable as it's able to jailbreak up-to-date Apple devices. The new system is already employed in Apple's next iOS 14 edition development, codenamed "Azul", as it is expected to be one of the most feature-rich software upgrades in Apple's history - you know, the first 5G iPhone and stuff - so Apple wouldn't want a repeat of the iOS 13 rollout fiasco.

Security experts typically advise against jailbreaking as it can expose a device owner to a greater range of attacks, while advising users to install their devices and software as soon as update become available. In case you missed it, the recent iOS 13.5 software update has made unlocking faster on the newer iPhone models for those who wear a face mask.
