Why do you need to jailbreak iPhone and iPad? This question arises from many users. In this regard, below we have provided you with 7 reasons to jailbreak iOS 11.3.1 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
#1. Jailbreak is very easy
Jailbreak is not as easy as it was a few years ago, but jailbreak tools make it as easy as possible for users. Electra jailbreak has already been installed by over 100,000 users. You don't need any technical skills to hack iPhone or iPad with a special tool.
After successfully installing the jailbreak, you can easily install tweaks and themes through the Cydia app – App Store for jailbreak apps and tweaks.
In addition, the Electra team has promised to release the Sileo app – an alternative to Cydia – with a more modern interface.
# 2. Application improvements
Cydia has tons of tweaks that either add more functionality to standard and third-party apps, or get rid of their limitations and shortcomings. For example, tweaks for Instagram allow you to save photos and videos from the feed to your device.
# 3. Customization iPhone
Jailbreak will allow you to change the interface of your device as you like. You can install entire themes or change only some of the interface elements. For example, you can add 5 application icons to the dock, add an additional line of characters to the standard keyboard, change the operator icon, and much more. You can change application icons to a completely new design.

#4. Protect folders and applications
If you are afraid to give your smartphone in the hands of friends and family, because they may find there something that they better not see, jailbreak will help you.
Jailbreak tweaks like BioProtect allow you to protect apps and folders with a password or Touch ID.
#five. Use any app in CarPlay
Apple introduced CarPlay in 2010. This function broadcasts the display of your smartphone to the car screen and also allows you to control your smartphone. However, the functionality of the function is very limited. It can only be used with these standard applications: Phone, Music, Maps, Messages, Books and Podcasts. There is also support for several third-party apps: iHeartRadio, Radioplayer, Spotify, CBS Radio, Rdio, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Google Play Music, Clammr, NPR One, Audi obooks and Audi ble. In iOS 12, support for third-party applications with navigation was added: Google Maps, Waze, etc. The new CarBridge tweak takes everything to a new level: it allows you to use in CarPlay any application.
# 6. Save battery with dark mode
Dark mode is one of the most coveted features iOS. We thought that Apple would introduce it along with iPhone X last year as it would help save smartphone battery thanks to its OLED display. Despite all the hints that the company was working on a regime, it never showed up.
With the jailbreak you can install EclipseX or NoctisXI tweaks which will add a full dark mode to iPhone X.
# 7. File Manager Filza
iOS 11 introduces a new Files app, similar to the Finder on Mac. However, it is still not as advanced as Filza File Manager because it does not provide access to system files. Not surprising, given the closed ecosystem iOS. With this tweak you can get around this limitation.
Filza File Manager is a full-fledged file manager that allows you to view system files and folders, as well as edit them right on your iPhone. You can also save files downloaded from the network. Moreover, tweaks like Filza can be installed without jailbreak via Cydia Impactor.
These were the main reasons to jailbreak iOS 11.3.1. If you need help installing it, you can read our detailed step-by-step instructions.
