The recently released iOS 9.1 jailbreak has proved that jailbreaking teams have the power to hack into almost anything, but it’s basically useless since almost all Apple device users have upgraded to iOS 9.2 or even 9.3. So, it’s safe to say that many iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch owners are eagerly waiting for an iOS 9 jailbreak that could actually be used with the latest version of the software.
Fortunately, it seems that they don’t have to wait for long since a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 is said to be released before June 13. This might seem like an arbitrary date but, as as a report points out, it’s not as random as it seems since June 13 is the start date of the Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC).
It won’t be really surprising if this rumor turns out to be true. Apple is scheduled to attend the WWDC and is expected to unveil new developments, such as the MacBook Pro 2016, the latest version of OS X, and iOS 10. By releasing the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak before the event, jailbreaking teams like Pangu and TaiG will embarrass Apple at the very least and cause them to have some explaining to do.
Yes to iOS 9.3.2 but No to 9.3?
The report points out that the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak may be released well before the WWDC and, in fact, may be available next month. If this happens, it would definitely be a welcome development for many iOS users who have switched to the latest iOS version.
It’s important to note that, as of this writing, iOS 9.3.2 is still in beta phase, and no one knows exactly when it would be released. It makes sense, though, for jailbreaking teams to wait until this latest version would be released to the public before unveiling their jailbreaking tool for it.
It also explains that there may not be a jailbreak for iOS 9.3. This comes from the fact that iOS 9.3 is plagued with bugs, prompting Apple to release iOS 9.3.1 and 9.3.2 to patch up these issues. If hacking teams would create a jailbreaking tool that takes advantage of iOS 9.3’s bugs, they may end up exposing iOS devices to even bigger security risks — something that no smartphone or tablet owner would want.
What About an iOS 9.3.1 Jailbreak?
It seems that jailbreaking teams are working not just on a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak but also on a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.1. Pangu, for instance, has announced on their website that a fully functional iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak isn’t yet available, although users can now download a partial jailbreak.
