    Jailbreaking your device gives you access to purchase/download/install 3rd party applications/tweaks/themes that Apple does not allow in their app store.

    If you read about jailbreaking on this site or just doing a google search, you'll learn a lot.

    iOS jailbreaking is the process of removing the limitations on Apple devices running the iOS operating system through the use of software and hardware exploits

    Jailbreaking permits root access to the iOS operating system, allowing the download of additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store
