Apart from the issues experience after jailbreaking, there are other reasons to remove the iOS 9 jailbreak as well. For instance, you need to unjailbreak your iPhone if you want it to take it for repair at the authorised Apple Center. If your iPhone is jailbroken, you will not be able to claim warranty. So you need to delete the jailbreak before taking your iPhone for repairs. A lot of people also remove the jailbreak when they want to sell off their iOS device, because a buyer who doesn’t like jailbreaks might not like the fact that the iPhone was jailbroken before.
So if you are serious about removing the iOS 9 jailbreak from your iPhone, follow the below-listed steps.
