One of the biggest question marks of 2016 for many Apple users was whether or not they would get a Jailbreak solution for the iPhone manufacturer’s latest OS build, iOS 10.2. While there were firm beliefs that this would happen eventually sometime 3 or 4 months ago, things don’t look so certain now.
It’s been quite a while since the official build hit Live and were made available to Apple users all over. Yet, it seems that the entities most anticipated to make a move have been unable to comply. The most recognizable of them all, Pangu, has been reduced to silence early on. It took a long time for them to actually put a statement out in the open, and when they did they reignited hope for many that had given up.
Today, we still lack a competent Jailbreak solution for iOS 10.2. The fortifications put in place by Apple during their beta testing phase of the firmware made it incredibly hard to crack, thus Pangu announced that they would be dropping out of the race to find a fix.
Independent hacker Luca Todesco came with an iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak tool that excited fans at first but then proved to be full of issues, and not of the ignorable kind. He is currently working on improving this tools and promises to have a better functioning version in the near future.
Meanwhile, the answer might be coming from Stefan Esser, who claims that he was able to use the information and advancements made by Todesco to come up with a tool for iOS 10.2. No actual jailbreaking option for iOS10.2 has come out yet but users are still waiting.
While a large portion of the iOS community is still trying to figure out way around Apple’s defenses and get an iOS 10.2 Jailbreak tool up and running, the rest is preparing for iOS 10.3 which is presumed to be arriving fairly soon. This has been deducted from the imminent release of iOS 10.2.1, which is already being tested on the beta platform.
