In our previous status update of the iOS 9.2 jailbreak, there was a hint about hacker groups Pangu or TaiG waiting for Apple to release the iOS 9.3. Now, rumors have been circulating in the web that hacker groups TaiG and PanGu have decided to really push back the release of the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak to coincide with the release of iOS 9.3 by Apple.
As of yet, there are no solid announcements about the exact release date of this version of jailbreak, where people are just inferring that it will not be launched anytime soon. Part of the rumors state that the hacker groups’ strategic move is to prevent Apple from creating a more protected operating system. Also, many of those using iOS were disappointed to hear that there is no jailbreak tool following the release of iOS 9.2.1.
A report by Inquistr reveals that Apple is looking into an operating system that is more secure and is continuously figuring out the vulnerabilities that TaiG and PanGu are able to break into. Also, the company was able to patch the vulnerabilities in iOS 9.1 that were breached by PanGu, while there are rumors about a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.2 already foreseeable, though it was not supposed to be leaked to the public.
On the other hand, Italian hacker Luca Todesco, otherwise known as qwertyoruiop, has claimed that a jailbreak is possible for iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, and 9.3 beta. He asserted that he was able to break into the Apple software. In addition, he posted a screenshot on his Twitter account and published a video on YouTube as evidence to his claims. Despite the lack of confirmation of its existence, numerous iOS users are already tweeting qwertyoruiop for the release date of the jailbreak.
There are also speculations that Apple users are close to receiving the iOS 9.3, so it would not make sense to release the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak tool now when it will going to be patched up quickly in the next system upgrade.
The unavailability of an iOS 9.2 jailbreak tool is also considered a blessing in disguise, as there is a high possibility that it will not be compatible with the iOS 9.2.1, as Apple had already included security fixes in it that will mess up with the exploits used by jailbreakers. So far, the only versions of iOS that had been jailbroken are iOS 9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2.
A word of caution from Apple, though, is that jailbreaking or any unauthorized modification of Apple devices can cause security vulnerabilities, disruption of services, instability, shortened battery life, inability to apply future software updates and other issues. Over the years, the company has been working to make the latest versions of their iOS unbreachable and to discourage the creation of any jailbreak tools by hacking companies. On the favor of those who want to jailbreak their devices, they will be able to unlock features that have been inaccessible to them and customize their smartphone applications.
