If rumors are to be believed, the iOS 9.3.5 jaibreaking tool will not see the light of day.
There are many reasons for this, and one of these is that Apple’s release of iOS 9.3.5 was kind of unexpected. Many people believed that iOS 9.3.4 would be the last iOS 9 update before Apple released iOS 10. However, the Cupertino-based company rolled out iOS 9.3.5 to patch up three zero-day exploits that put Apple users’ private information at risk and exposed them to serious hacking. This has greatly increased the security of Apple users, but it also took aback jailbreak creators since the rollout was so sudden.
Even if jailbreaking teams have been prepared for iOS 9.3.5, they probably would not have paid it any attention. This comes from the fact that most of them are focused on the imminent release of iOS 10, the major update that Apple fans (and almost everybody in the tech world) has been looking forward to. Renowned jailbreaking team Pangu, for example, has showcased their iOS 10 jailbreaking tool during the 2016 Mobile Security Conference in China, proving that they’ve spent a lot of time tinkering with iOS 10.
So, if there won’t be any jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5, what should Apple device owners do? Well, if you’re one of these folks, you have a couple of options to choose from. One of these is to stick with iOS 9.3.4 or below so you can take advantage of the jailbreaking tools for these versions. Unfortunately, choosing this option will expose you to the zero-day exploits and put your sensitive information at risk.
Another option is to update to iOS 9.3.5 to enjoy the security patches it would bring. This can make you lose your current jailbreaking tool, but you’ll at least increase your security. You don’t have to worry since it’s rumored that Pangu will roll out a jailbreak soon after iOS 10 is publicly released. If this comes true, you’ll probably get a new jailbreaking tool a few weeks or months from now.
