Those who have been waiting for an iOS jailbreak will rejoice since the iOS 9.3.2 Jailbreak is said to be released soon.
This rumor stems from the demonstration that famous hacker group Pangu made during the 2016 Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC), which was held in China on July 1. During their demonstration, Pangu showed that they have already been able to jailbreak into the iOS 10 developer beta version, which is impressive since iOS 10 is touted to be more secure and more difficult to jailbreak than the previous versions.
This demonstration led many people to believe that Pangu has already come up with a jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.3.2 and perhaps even 9.3.3. After all, if they’ve been able to jailbreak into the iOS 10, there’s a good chance that they have already jailbroken the older versions of the firmware.
However, there’s no actual date as to when this would happen. There have been some whispers going around that the jailbreak would be released by the end of the first week of July. However, they were confirmed to be untrue by Twitter user @vangelis_at_POC, who is said to be an organizer for POC (the biggest hacking and security conference in South Korea) as well as for MOTEC.
Still, the fact that Pangu has jailbroken into iOS 10 is good news for iPhone, iPod, and iPad users since it’s been a long time since the Apple community has received a decent jailbreak. The last jailbreak, which was for iOS 9.1, was released in March, but it wasn’t really that useful since most people have upgraded to iOS 9.2 and even 9.3 by then. At that time, it was no longer possible to downgrade from higher versions to iOS 9.1, so the only people who could enjoy the jailbreak were those who haven’t upgraded their devices for a long time and those who bought pre-owned devices that were running on the iOS 9.1 firmware.
If an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak would be released soon, it would be the first time in a long time that a jailbreaking tool would work with the current iOS version that many people are using.
