Like many Apple device owners, you probably already know that renowned hacking team Pangu has released a jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.2 up to 9.3.3. This has delighted many Apple fans, who have been waiting for months for a new jailbreaking tool that would work with current iOS versions. (The last jailbreak was released on March but it was for the severely outdated iOS 9.1.)

You probably also know that Pangu’s recently released jailbreak is far from perfect: it’s a semi-untethered tool. This means 1) you need to connect your Apple device to your computer to download and install the tool and 2) you have to re-install the jailbreak in case your your iPhone, iPod, or iPad reboots.

Many people are complaining about this since it makes jailbreaking more of a hassle. This isn’t a surprise considering that Apple device owners are used to the untethered jailbreaks that Pangu and other hacking teams have released in the past. The bad news is that Pangu doesn’t seem to be willing to update its jailbreaking tool. When asked by a Reddit user if they would be releasing a fully untethered version jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3. or iOS 10, Pangu replied, “Sorry no plan on untether JB for 9.3.3”.

So, to answer the question we posited in this article’s title: we probably won’t see a fully untethered jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.3.3, unless Pangu changes its mind.

This can be disappointing, but there’s still a ray of hope. If you look at Pangu’s reply above, you’ll see that it doesn’t answer a part of the Redditor’s question: an untethered iOS 10 jailbreak. The fact that Pangu didn’t mention this in its reply may mean that an untethered jailbreaking tool for iOS 10 is in the works, although we’ll only know for sure once the jailbreak is released.
