Apple recently released its iOS 9.3.1 update that included a fix to a bug that kept making applications become unresponsive after links were tapped in Safari and a number of other apps. With the update, many jailbreaking fans are speculating if TaiG or Pangu are going to be able to do a jailbreaking tool for the update. After all, it’s just three months before Apple is supposed to announce its iOS 10 and there’s still no iOS 9.3 jailbreak.
In January, Apple released iOS 9.3 in beta form. On March 21, the official copy was released to the public, but it came with some major issues. 10 days later, Apple developed and released the first update to it, offering security fixes and new features like Verizon Wi-Fi calling and Night Shift. However, it also caused a bug that caused applications to freeze when tapping links in Safari and other apps.
There’s also no jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.2, and no word on when iOS 9.3 jailbreaking tool is going to be made public. What is known is that the software has got some vulnerabilities. On top of that, qwertyoruip, an iOS developer, released a video of his iPhone operating the iOS 9.3 beta. He never mentions when he’ll make the tool available to the public… if ever.
On March 11, Pangu released a jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.1, but many users have upgraded their phones to iOS 9.2 or 9.2.1, hoping the hackers will find vulnerabilities to iOS 9.3. Qwertyoruip is unlikely to help hacker teams, meaning they must do it for themselves.
At this time, nobody should upgrade to iOS 9.3 or iOS 9.3.1 because they may be tricked into downloading a fake jailbreak that could damage the phone. Best case scenario? Apple releases iOS 9.3.2 with security holes that hackers can find and benefit from.
