Jailbreaking your smartphone or tablet is one of the best ways to negate the manufacturer’s predetermined settings and have more control over your gadget. This is one of the biggest reasons why many iPhone and iPad users look forward to jailbreaking tools. Unfortunately, they have to wait for some time before they can have access to these tools since Apple continues to tighten its security with every iOS release, making it more difficult for jailbreak teams to find loopholes in the software.
This is definitely true for those who are on iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1. Many hackers have claimed that these two versions can be jailbroken and even provided evidence of their success, but they haven’t released it any info to the public, leaving many iOS users scratching their heads. Popular hacking teams like PangGu haven’t released their own versions of the iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak yet, leading many to wonder if one will be released in the future or not.
For now, it seems that iOS users have a couple of options. If they’re still on iOS 9.1, they can download the jailbreak that PangGu has recently released for this version. It came out just this March which, according to some, is several months too late, since many people have already upgraded to higher iOS versions. But, if you’re one of those who haven’t upgraded their software, or if you can buy a device that’s still on iOS 9.1, then you can surely enjoy PangGu’s iOS 9.1 jailbreak.
If you’ve already upgraded beyond iOS 9.1, you can no longer downgrade back to it since Apple has stopped signing this version in December 2015. So, you can opt to stay in iOS 9.2.1 and wait for hacking teams to release an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreaking tool. It most likely will be a long wait, but it will be worth it. Many tech experts think that jailbreaking teams are just waiting for Apple to release iOS 9.3 before they unveil iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 jailbreaking tools. Since iOS 9.3 has just been released on March 21, you might hear about iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 jailbreaks in the following days or weeks.
Another option is to upgrade to iOS 9.3. Well-known Italian hacker Luca Tedesco showed that this version can be jailbroken so, sooner or later, hacking teams may release a jailbreaking tool for it. However, it might take hackers a long time to develop an iOS 9.3 jailbreak, so you might be in for a long haul.
