Apple iOS - Would it be a good idea to "jailbreak" an older iPhone/iPad?

Recommended Posts

Eventually older iPhones/iPads become outdated in the sense that Apple will no longer provide updates for these. So many people then just buy a newer iPhone/iPad and the older model becomes worthless to them. So I was wondering if anyone knows some of the answers to the following questions:

  • Older models such as the iPhone 6 or before are no longer able to receive the newer updates, but if a person were to "jailbreak" an older iPhone/iPad, is it then possible to install the latest iOS updates?
  • Many year ago jailbreaking an Apple device was illegal, but is it legal now?
  • While there are many benefits of "rooting" an Android device, are there some good benefits to jailbreaking an Apple device?
  • Many years ago it was quite difficult to jailbreak a device, but I understand that it is much easier today, any recommendations? 

Any advice/suggestions I will appreciate, thanks. :)

Sorry, I am of the 'why buy hardware that I can't control/make full use of?' persuasion, so I'm not familiar with all the legalities or technicalities thereof. 😺
What is it that you want to do with your phone that requires jailbreaking?
Here are a couple of videos that I've reviewed that should have what you're looking for.
