Hi, I just bought an iPhone 6s and I was wondering, are really practical risk to jailbreak or not? like little bugs, lags, slowdown or other .. It'll just be for 2 or 3 tweaks that I think it's unfortunate that they are not available without jailbreak :)
It's still new and I'm pretty satisfied with his response so I hesitate to do anything.

(Sorry for my english, i'm french :oops:)

for the most part, you should not have any problems jailbreaking. Just make sure that the tweaks you install are updated for ios 9 compatibility to reduce bugs or other software issues

Which tweaks are you looking to add?

Unfortunately, it seems that this jailbreak is probably the least stable that I've ever seen in the years I've been jailbreaking. (for more information, you can search up "boot loop of death" or BLOD for short)

Just from what I've seen of this jailbreak I'd agree with Darricksailo. I would personally recommend waiting till 9.1 is jail broken as it seems the 9.0 JB was rushed out.

i'm looking to add tweaks like bioprotect for more security in my phone it's unfortunate to see we can't make password for our pics or messages without jailbreak

Just do a search for photo and lock.

The problem with third party apps is that you have to use them for your camera and photo storage to lock things down. Use the stock Photos app and you don't get that.

Why is why my statement was tongue-in-cheek.

Up to now I've not encountered lag / battery drain etc.

That said I choose not to use Winterboard and theme now.

I also only use specific tweaks and am careful to download those when I've seen conclusive proof that they are behaving well with iOS 9 and other tweaks I use.

Right now I'm only using RevealMenu.

Key is doing a little homework on the tweaks that interest you and not downloading loads of tweaks and not using shady repo's.

any issues will come from the actual tweak you install and how well it was done. The jb itself will not give you any issues.
