There are many exciting reasons for jailbreaking your iPhone, but a lot of people worry that iOS “jailbreak” might create instability or slow down their terminal’s performance. Of course this is a valid concern, because it can be one of the downsides of jailbreaking; but it doesn’t have to be this way.
If your iPhone does slow down, this is just a temporary issue that can easily be resolved. It’s important to remember that, if you are going to jailbreak your iPhone, you must ensure that your device is running iOS 9.0.2. Anything newer than this is not currently jailbreakable, because with the release of iOS 9.1 Apple patched up the jailbreak exploits; and they’re still intact for iOS 9.2.
If you are on iOS 9.0.2, then there are no problems with jailbreaking your iPhone and we have the perfect guide to take you through the jailbreaking process.
Once your iPhone has been jailbroken, though, you may be concerned that the jailbreaking will affect your iPhone by slowing it down, perhaps now or in the future. Here is some information about jailbreaking and the performance of your iPhone.
So, the Main Question Here Is: Will Jailbreaking Your IPhone Slow It down?
This is probably the most asked question from iPhone users who are interested in jailbreaking their phone, and because it’s a legitimate concern it’s a very good question to ask.
When an iPhone is jailbroken and various tweaks have subsequently been installed, it means that the iOS has been modified at the code level – so changes will occur to the system. It’s quite natural to be concerned that this may affect overall stability and performance of the iPhone.
So, in answer to the question, yes, jailbreaking your iPhone can cause your iPhone to slow down; however, it won’t be permanent and it’s not something that will occur the moment you jailbreak your iPhone.
It’s important to remember that, whether your iPhone is jailbroken or not, it will become slower over time anyway. As iOS gains more features and becomes more resource-heavy, the older iPhones won’t be able to keep up. Obviously, this is not the main reason why jailbroken iPhones slow down, but when you’re experiencing performance issues it’s something you need to consider.
Basically, when you install a lot of jailbreak tweaks your iPhone can slow down, and this will depend on what tweaks you install, and how many you install. It’s possible that some jailbreak tweaks will clash with others, resulting in slowdowns and problems with your iPhone’s performance.
But, the good news is that jailbreaking won’t permanently slow down your iPhone. It’s generally just a matter of determining which one is the culprit (and this will usually be a single tweak that’s causing the problems) and then getting rid of it.
Generally speaking, jailbreaking can cause your iPhone to slow down, and during your jailbreaking experience it’s likely that you’ll come across some performance issues at one point or another. Just remember that this is something that can easily be fixed, once you have the knowledge of how to troubleshoot jailbreaking problems.
