Did you ever imagine that you could voice command Siri to jailbreak your iOS device for you? Does it seem too good to be true? Well! It turns out that developer Samg_is_a_Ninja is developing just the same. The developer has teased the creation of an iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts workflow in order to jailbreak Apple’s device and install Cydia as a part of the jailbreaking procedure. Apple, when it decided to take over the Workflow app with iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts in mind, would have never thought that the same can be used by the developers for jailbreaking as well.

With this feature, you can simply speak a one-liner voice command and you will have your iOS 12 device jailbroken within minutes.

[Upcoming] Jailbreak iOS 12 with Siri ShortCuts & UnC0ver
The developer Samg_is_a_Ninja has stated that the process will support 4K devices as well and will be compatible with iOS 12-12.1.2. As of now, no release date has been confirmed but if we go by the words of the developer, they need to iron out some bugs before they release the same. Please note that this is a semi-untethered jailbreak which means that you have to re-jailbreak each time you reboot your device. However, the re-jailbreaking procedure will be much faster than the initial run as the initial run involves the installation of Cydia as well.
