Apple Emphasized Negative Effects Of Jailbreaking In Recently Published Support Article
Apple is surely not a good friend of the jailbreak community; in fact, as it releases new iOS version, the tech giant makes sure that jailbreaking the platform is much more difficult.

It also leads to recurrent and unpredicted crashes, lessens the overall battery life of the gadget, and in some circumstances, affects the cellular connectivity of the handset as well.
The Cupertino-based tech giant also stated that jailbreaking your iOS devices might lead to an interruption in the services like iCloud, FaceTime, Apple Pay, with the third-party application are also being incapable of properly sending notifications to the users. Last but not least, Apple even stated that unofficial alterations to iOS have led to permanent damage, with the hacked iOS device becoming permanently unworkable post a future iOS upgrade.
