The last iOS jailbreak that the Pangu team released was for iOS 9.2-9.3.3. Anyone can tell you by just looking at the version numbers that the release was quite some time ago. The last branch of the iOS 9 tree is version 9.3.5 which was rolled out on August 25, 2016.
Given that a fourth developer preview has been dropped for iOS 10.2, is there still a chance we will get to see an iOS 10 jailbreak?
A lot of reports are circulating that yes, a jailbreak is coming. However, the articles just can’t pin down a when. There have been reports about it dropping during the holidays but while we can all be excited about it, the Pangu Team has been silent. The last time they posted an update on their Twitter account was on August 5.
Have they been busy working on an iOS 10 jailbreak or have they completely given up? The team has shown that a jailbreak was possible at MOSEC 2016 in July. During that event, they did say they would release an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak and they did in August.
But what people are waiting for now is an iOS 10 jailbreak and when it would arrive. There’s a good chance it won’t and there’s still a possibility that it might. A good reason for assuming the former is the release of iOS 9.3.4 which fixed the jailbreak exploit of version 9.3.3.
In fact, Apple credited Team Pangu in a document about the security content of iOS 9.3.4. That update was released on August 4, 2016.
Since that date, we haven’t heard from jailbreaking group Pangu Team. Yes, there are lots of other articles floating around about a potential iOS 10 jailbreaking tool but none of these have been confirmed.
