Apple after releasing iOS 13.5.1 stops signing iOS 13.5 vulnerable to unc0ver jailbreak
Apple released iOS 13.5 to all supported smartphones including the old iPhones. The new Apple iOS 13.5 brings major improvements including the highly-anticipated Exposure Notification API to the iPhones. But it also has brought the jailbreakers to the forefront. As soon as Apple announced the release of iOS 13.5, a hacker team called unc0ver claimed that they can already unlock this OS version regardless of the device running it.

After a week of the vulnerability been found by the Unc0ver hacker, Apple has released iOS 13.5.1, which the company says “provides important security updates and is recommended for all users,” the update is meant to patch out the kernel vulnerability used by the recent Unc0ver jailbreak.
The unc0ver jailbreak was compatible with all versions of iOS up to iOS 13.5, but since it has been patched in iOS 13.5.1, it is not possible to jailbreak a device running the iOS 13.5.1 update. Apple released a similar security fix for tvOS, watchOS, and macOS, patching the vulnerability across all devices.
Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out in order to encourage customers to keep their operating systems up to date. iOS 13.5.1, with the security fix, is the only current publicly available version of iOS that can be installed on iPhones and iPads.
iOS 13.5.1 provides important security updates and is recommended for all users. You can also check all the features of iOS 13.5.1 referring to this article.
