Pangu has released the iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak in the fall of 2015, and we’re pretty sure that it took many Apple fans by surprise. With other words, many users have been asking themselves how secure iOS is, if a hacker group can jailbreak it so fast.
Apple had to react to this and it released the iOS 9.1, followed by iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1. Back then, a number of independent hackers have confirmed that they’ve successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3 betas. However, none of them planned to release it to public, but let’s not forget that those were BETA versions, which means that Apple most likely fixed the holes of these versions before they’ve released it to public.
In March 2016, Pangu has released a new jailbreak for the iOS 9.1 devices. So, if you have a 64bit device that runs on iOS 9.1, you can download and install the jailbreak on it.
Unfortunately, it seems that Pangu can’t jailbreak yet the iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3 or iOS 9.3.1, which means that Apple did a pretty good job with the latest iOS versions that were released.
Currently, the iOS 9.2 is no longer signed by Apple, which means that downgrading from iOS 9.2.1 can’t be done anymore. With other words, if your iDevice already runs on iOS 9.2 or above, you will not be able to jailbreak. However, we’re pretty sure that Pangu is working on releasing a jailbreak for the iOS versions that are currently signed by Apple, but it might take a while until this happens.
Apple has released the iOS 9.3 on March 21, 2016, followed by an iOS 9.3.1 update just a week after that, which patched some bugs that they’ve found on the iOS 9.3. Luca Tedesco, an Italian developer, has already demonstrated in a video that the iOS 9.3 can be jailbroken, but it seems that he will not release it to public.
That being said, we’re pretty confident that Pangu will release an iOS 9.3 jailbreak sometime in the following weeks.
