I have an iPhone XR, currently on 12.3.1, have not updated waiting on JB, I looked around now and the only option is 13.6.1, which is jailbreakable but up to iPhone X. I know that unc0ver has for 13.5 which I missed and I do not know if there’s a way to upgrade to it. What should I do? Upgrade to 13.6.1 with hopes of a jailbreak or stay at 12.3.1? Is there a way to upgrade to 13.5 and get the jailbreak? Since Apple is no longer signing it.

Unfortunately there is no way for you to upgrade/downgrade to 13.5 if you haven't saved your blobs.

The golden rule of Jailbreak is this: Always keep to the lowest iOS version possible and wait for a Jailbreak. However, in this situation, I'd bent this rule and upgrade to 13.6.1.

The reason for this is because I don't think that anyone is investing in finding a Jailbreak for 12 or below anymore. The focus is currently on 13+. Usually if there is NO Jailbreak for an iOS, then staying the lowest iOS version is recommended, but yeah, like I said, I'd upgrade if I were you.
