    Suppose, I have a new iPhone 6s with latest iOS, and I want to find vulnerabilities in iOS itself. I'm new to iOS and OS X. How do I set up the proper environment for this? What software and/or hardware tools do I need to accomplish this?

    P.S.: Which component of iOS would you recommend me to start with? Which one is more likely to contain vulnerabilities that could result in jailbreak?

    I have no clue how you'd start.

    I will point this out though. The majority of successful jailbreakers (and devs) have Apple developer accounts.

    Do you have any coding experience at all? If not, don't even try.
    You need to have alot of experience with c/c++/objective c to even think about starting out with a jailbreak. Most members of the jailbreak teams were also taught hacking ios specifically to supplement their coding knowledge.

    Yes, I do have programming experience(BTW, I'm currently studying CS). But my question was not about internals of iOS. It was rather about tools and methods for debugging and exploiting latest iOS.

    You can start here
    https://reverse.put.as/wp-content/u...ser_iOS_Kernel_Exploitation_IOKit_Edition.pdf
    There are also seminars/meet ups/conferences to discuss latest exploits and methods.
    Also watch YouTube video of older ios exploitation conferences. They are extremely helpful.

    I've already gone through these slides and videos. They give some foundation, but they're dated and I bet a lot have changed since then. Lightning cable, just to mention. Could you please provide links to meetups/seminars/communities about iOS exploit development?

    You can try contacting Stefan though I doubt he'll help unless you took one of his classes. You can try the old cable to lightning adapter.
    Also try reddit and see if there are more like you trying to get into ios exploitation.
    On a side note: I'm also a computer science student and was wondering specifically what you're doing for your degree and future career plans.

    I guess poking around new one is a better investment of one's time
