You can now use checkra1n to jailbreak iOS 13.3. The tool was initially released as a solution based on checkm8 exploit, to jailbreak devices running iOS 12.3 and above.

Use Checkra1n to Jailbreak iOS 13.3
Thanks to checkra1n, users on iOS 13.3 can jailbreak their iOS devices to install tweaks and apps that cannot be installed through official means like the App Store. Checkra1n jailbreak works by taking advantage of a vulnerability in A5 - A 11 processors, created by Apple for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The BootROM vulnerability is called checkm8 and cannot be patched by Apple through software updates.
Devices ranging from iPhone 4S - iPhone X are impacted by this vulnerability, regardless of the iOS version. This means that even if Apple released iOS 14 or iOS 15 for these devices, developers would be able to release updates to checkra1n to use checkm8 and jailbreak them.
Here are the complete release notes for checkra1n 0.9.7 beta.
- Fixes an issue which prevented the GUI from detecting changes in device modes
- Fixes an issue that caused the GUI to hang when jailbreaking some iPad models
