Lots of users do love the well-designed and well-thought out phones that Apple continually puts out. However, for some users, there’s this need to do something more with their phones. This is particularly true for users of open platform phones like those running on Android.

You see, Apple’s phones have so many software restrictions and it may alienate some users. But there is a solution to these restrictions and it’s called jailbreaking.

Essentially, a jailbroken iOS phone allows root access to the iOS file system and manager. As such, users can now download additional applications, extensions and themes not available on the App Store.

The Official iOS 9.3.3

iOS 9.3.3 was released on July 18, 2016 and featured many improvements and bug fixes, including those for Calendar, FaceTime and Safari – just to name a few.

This particular branch was supposed to be the last update in the iOS 9 tree. However, the update apparently broke iBooks for a number of iPhone and iPad users. This issue was fixed in a subsequent update.



The Jailbroken iOS 9.3.3

An untethered jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 was released by Pangu and it can be installed on several 64-bit devices. Here’s the list of devices that can support this jailbreak:

  • iPhone 5S

  • iPhone SE
  • iPod Touch 6G
  • iPad mini 2

So before you attempt to jailbreak your phone, make sure you have one of the devices listed above. Also, while this is a fully functional jailbreak, keep in mind that this doesn’t support jailbreak for iOS 9.3.4 and iOS 9.3.5. To jailbreak your iOS 9.3.3, follow the steps outlined in this post.
