Apple device owners will reportedly get a jailbreaking tool for their iOS 9.3.2 devices anytime soon.
It was rumored that the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak would be released on the first week of July, but this time frame has come and gone without any jailbreaking tool in the horizon. Still, all hope is not lost since there are rumors that the tool would be released anytime in July or at least before iOS 10 is rolled out.
These rumors stem from the presentation that famous hacking team Pangu made during the Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC), which took place in Shanghai, China, on July 1. Pangu’s presentation mainly focused on iOS 10; they showed that they have jailbroken into the beta version of this firmware and installed the Cydia app (which can only run on jailbroken iOS gadgets) into the device that was running on the jailbroken iOS 10.
But Pangu reportedly did not stop there since they also gave a presentation about iOS 9.3.2. According to Twitter user @vangelis_at_POC, (who is one of the organizers of MOSEC as well as South Korean hacking and security conference POC), Pangu talked about a privacy problem in iOS 9.3.2. In another tweet, @vangelis_at_POC stated that he didn’t know if Pangu already has an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak or not, but he denied that the hacking group would release a jailbreaking tool within the week of their demo.
Still, the fact that Pangu talked about iOS 9.3.2 has prompted many to think that the hacking group is working on a jailbreaking tool for this firmware. Several people also believe that Pangu would release the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak before the public rollout of iOS 10, which will reportedly happen in September. If this turns out to be true, it will make a lot of sense; once iOS 10 is released, most Apple device users will want to upgrade to it, making an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreaking tool useless and unnecessary.
It’s important to note, though, that these are just speculations. The final say will come from Pangu, who are still yet to announce the official release date of the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak. This announcement may or may not happen during Black Hat USA 2016 which, according to @vangelis_at_POC, will feature a talk from Pangu. Black Hat USA 2016 will take place in Las Vegas from July 30 to August 4.
