Yesterday, Apple has released the iOS 9.3.1 update with a fix for a bug that was causing applications “to be unresponsive after tapping on links in Safari and other apps”. This made many jailbreak fans wonder if Pangu or TaiG will be able to release a jailbreak tool for this update, since iOS 9.3 jailbreak is missing and we’re three months away from the announcement of iOS 10 (at Apple’s WWDC event).
iOS 9.3 was beta tested since January and it was finally released on March 21, but it had some issues and ten days later, Apple had to come up with a first update, which besides security fixes and new features such as Night Shift and Verizon WiFi calling, it brought a fix for the bug that was freezing applications after tapping on links when using Safari or other applications.
We don’t have an iOS 9.2 jailbreak either and there’s no word yet if iOS 9.3 jailbreak will be released soon, but it was proven that the software has some vulnerabilities and there is a iOS developer qwertyoruiop who showed a video of his iPhone running on iOS 9.3 beta. Unfortunately, he didn’t say if he’ll release the jailbreak tool for public, or he will keep it to himself, just like the Italian developer Luca Todesco did.
Pangu has released iOS 9.1 jailbreak on March 11, and since then, many users already upgraded to iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1, with the hope that the hackers will find exploits in iOS 9.3. Without a doubt, qwertyoruiop will not want to help the two teams of hackers, which means that they are on their own.
At this point, it’s not safe to upgrade to iOS 9.3 or iOS 9.3.1, because you might be tricked to download fake iOS 9.3 jailbreak which could harm your device. In the best case, Apple will slip security holes in iOS 9.3.2, allowing hackers to exploit them.
