As of A March 14 update, Apple released a seventh iOS 9.2 Beta version. This version is thought to be the last one before it gets a public release.
However, Pangu, a Chinese development team, has offered jailbreak versions for iOS 9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 last year, causing Apple to sit up and take notice of vulnerabilities when the device is connected to public networks.
Pangu’s jailbreak answer for the noted softwares was quite surprising. However, for people who wanted it, it was a great surprise. The release allowed for the public domain of the vulnerability, which led to Apple breaking the jailbreak down and fixing holes that were create for security measures.
With the release of both iOS 9.2 and 9.2.1 early in 2015, Apple fixed a number of jailbreak exploits, making it harder for Pangu and other hacker jailbreak teams to release additional public jailbreaks. Some hackers have claimed they’ve successfully broken these updates but have no plans to publicly release it.
During March, Pangu released the iOS 9.1 jailbreak for those 64-bit devices still with this operating software. A late release means anyone that updated for 9.2 or 9.3 cannot use it. Apple is no longer making 9.1 or 9.2 available to ensure the technology runs smoothly and is kept up-to-date.
Some users feel Pangu is wait for the release Apple’s final iOS 9.3 version before the jailbreak on iOS 9.2.1 and 9.3 phones is available. Another reason for the late release on the latest jailbreak. Currently, Apple is behind several stages.
On March 21, Apple released a public statement saying it would publicly release the final version for iOS 9.3. Despite the fact that jailbreaks are possible for 9.1 and the potential for 9.3 to be jailbroken exists, nothing’s been addressed for iOS’ 9.2 or 9.3. If you want to use the jailbroken versions, you may want to avoid any updating of the latest iOS versions.
