There has been growing concern over the unlocking and jailbreaking of iPhone 7 or 7 Plus phones. A lot of iPhone enthusiasts are even wondering what “jailbreaking” is all about. Earlier, they could just run an unlock code and get the unlock iPhone job done. The iPhone 7, with all its features and enhancements, also comes with a slightly more complicated method of unlocking. With the iPhone 7, you need first to make sure that you remove the limits Apple has placed on the device. Doing this is known as “jailbreaking.”
How to Jailbreak the iPhone 7
The iPhone 7 has limits that Apple has placed. This limiting factor gave birth to the term “jailbreak” which as you can see, literally means ‘removing all restrictions.’ So how does one go about the process of jailbreaking the phone? It is pretty simple – just go to any search engine like Google or Yahoo and search for any unlock iPhone 7 software. Irrespective of which one you choose, installing the jailbreaking software will also involve installing a program called ‘Cydia’ on your phone, which is what frees your iPhone 7 from all of Apple’s limits.
Is jailbreaking and unlocking legal?
This is another concern which a lot of people have. Nobody wants to break any law deliberately. But you need not worry because even Apple agrees that unlocking and jailbreaking it using any unlock iPhone software is totally legal. However, they do not really ‘encourage’ it, which is pretty understandable in today’s capitalist economy. Apple knows that all the cool apps, addictive games and third party software one could potentially access by getting the iPhone 7 unlocked will obviously make Apple’s apps look bad. They might not be ready to face all this competition. Hence, limiting the iPhone 7 seems like one way for them to nullify their losses. They know that not all people would want to unlock their iPhone 7, some out of ignorance, some out of laziness and some others who think that it is illegal.
The Exact Procedure
Once the Cydia program is installed, you need to search for the unlock iPhone app called ‘UltraSn0w’. Once you find that app, just download it and then run it. Once you run it, your iPhone 7 will be unlocked. Now you can go ahead and change the SIM. To do this, look for a safety pin or an open paper clip. Shove that into the tiny hole next to the SIM holding tray, and the tray will pop out. This is when you can insert the new SIM of your choice and then reboot the iPhone. Once you turn your phone back on you will see that you have successfully learned how to unlock iPhone 7.
