iOS 11 is the latest major firmware release from Apple and, as of yet, iOS jailbreak is not possible. For those of you that have updated your iOS devices, you will not be able to downgrade back to a version of the firmware that can be jailbroken and, as such, that means you will be missing out on your favorite modifications and apps from the Cydia store. One of the reasons why some people install jailbreaks is so that they can install the latest paid content, apps and games on their iOS devices for free.

You can’t get HipStore by going into the app store though so you will need to follow the steps we outline below. You won’t need a computer to do this and you can remove it anytime you want.
