Jailbreaking allows you to tweak or customize some features or functionalities of the iOS device to allow for the download and installation of additional applications, extensions, and themes that can't be acquired through the official Apple App Store.
Hence, when you jailbreak, you can remove any software or restriction that prevents you from accessing or customizing the features of the iOS device, and after a jailbreak, your iPhone can do things it couldn't do ordinarily such as:
- Install unofficial apps.
- Modify settings on the areas of the phone that were previously restricted.
- Utilize third-party apps that can add tons of functionalities to your iOS device.
- Unlock your iPhone to use it with a network carrier other than the one from which you purchased it.
