Should You Jailbreak iOS 9?

What are the pros and cons of jailbreaking iOS 9?

The public beta version of iOS 9.3 was launched on March 21, 2016, and some previews of iOS 9 beta have been placed on the internet by those who had played around with it. Judging from the feedback, iOS 9 doesn't sport new features that will be called a game changer compared with iOS 8 that I am not content with, which makes me want to jailbreak iOS 9 as soon as it is possible. However, I think it is necessary to have a rough understanding about the pros and cons of jailbreaking iOS 9 before embarking on this jailbreaking thing. Can anyone fill me in on this matter?

Pros of Jailbreaking iOS 9
