Firstly, jailbreaking your iOS can bring you many benefits, such as free customization, a chance to access the iOS files, download and install apps freely. But on the contrary, a jailbroken iPad contains obvious disadvantages. If you jailbreak your iPad, it means that you lost the protection of Apple Inc. Your iPad warranty will be invalid and the iOS system update will not be available. Everything does have two sides. Before the jailbreaking, it will be better to think about the advantages and disadvantages.
