Apple’s iPhone is possibly one of the most successful smartphones to ever be released. Sporting a robust, fast and intuitive mobile operating system, the iOS, the iPhone has certainly solidified itself as one of the best options out there when it comes to mobiles. Despite being extremely robust the iOS does not give the end user who is a bit savvier the ability to tinker with the phone to his/her liking. Fortunately, a group of very knowledgeable users were able to come up with a smart solution to this minor issue which became popularly known as “jailbreak”.

There are countless benefits that come with jail breaking if you decide to jailbreak your iPhone. Evidently, most users jailbreak their phones in order to give their phones a bit of a personal touch by customizing the phones appearance and overall behavior.  That is all good, but not convincing enough due to the vague nature of the term “customize”.

A user with a jail broken iPhone can alter the phone’s appearance completely.  It is possible to change all of the icons, add as many apps as you can to the dock, add as many apps as possible in a folder, get rid of the annoying newsstand and even use their iPhones abroad!

Obviously, many users wonder if they can break their iPhones by doing that. The answer to the question is a resounding, “No”. Due to the way the iPhone was designed it is next to impossible to brick the iPhone by jail breaking it.

Summarizing, if you still haven’t jailbreak your phone then it is time to do it. Not only you will get more out of your device but you will also make your experience much more enjoyable and personal.
