In today's video, we're discussing the latest iOS update released by Apple a few hours ago, the #iOS 12.2. Of course, the iOS 12.2 comes with various features which are worthy of their own video, however, the security contents of the iOS 12.2 are definitely an important aspect that we should take in consideration when deciding whether we should update to iOS 12.2 or stay on a lower version. The security contents published by Apple is quite big with a lot of major bug patches including some nasty privacy ones. There is also a fair share of kernel vulnerabilities that have been patched which may be usable for an iOS 12.1.3 and iOS 12.1.4 jailbreak in the future.
Of course, the first step in deciding whether you should update to iOS 12.2 is clarifying whether you want to jailbreak (or stay jailbroken) or not. If you are not interested in iOS Jailbreak, then, of course, you should update to the latest version. As a rule of thumb, the latest version usually is the most secure version you can be one because it has the least number of known vulnerabilities. Of course, it's not 100% secure but it is much more secure than an old version which has plenty of exploits available.
If you are, however, interested in jailbreaking, you should not go anywhere near iOS 12.2. It patches an awful lot of bugs, many of which can potentially be used for an iOS 12.1.3 and iOS 12.1.4 Jailbreak. In fact, you should not really update past 12.1.2. The PAC bypass Brandon Azad made has been patched after that version, so jailbreaking A12 and A12X devices will not be an easy task in the future.
