An iPhone that is not jailbroken presents many limitations and lacks flexibility. With a simple jailbreak, you will be able to remove all such restrictions and enjoy more benefits on your iPhone.
It is therefore a viable option for people who want more than just what Apple is offering you.
Main Benefits of Jailbreaking your iPhone
Jailbreaking enables you to download apps that are not available in the iTunes App Store. Although some apps may be banned for security reasons, some pretty useful apps which pose no security threat may also closed out and banned from their Store. If you jailbreak your iPhone, you can download and install such apps from Cydia with no problem at all.
Freedom to choose your default apps. With an iPhone, you can only use Apple apps as the default, even if they are not your preferred option. Jailbreaking your iPhone will give that freedom back to you and you can choose the apps to use as your default apps.
An iPhone has its own inbuilt anti-theft feature, the Find My iPhone. Although it is very useful and has helped many find their stolen iPhones, it has its loopholes. Jailbreaking will allow you to get better and more effective anti-theft apps which lack the weaknesses of the iPhone app.
With a jailbroken iPhone, you can make your iPhone truly your own. This is because you can customize many features to your liking and avoid the ones that come with the iPhone or the ones available in iTunes App Store. For example, you can change your theme, font, customize animations among many others.
Jailbreaking allows you to have an extended and more useful control center. It allows you to have more toggles, shortcuts to apps and other interesting features through tweaks like the Phenomeon tweak.
