It has been more than two days since Apple released the latest version of iOS 10.3. And until now, the jailbreaking community is still waiting on the promise made by the Pangu team. A few weeks before the release, Pangu announced that it will release the iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool after Apple releases the latest iOS version. The new version of iOS has already come and gone but the jailbreak tool is still nowhere to be found.
Although the hacking team has already showed the public that is has indeed succeeded in creating an iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool, it still insists on delaying its release. This led some to believe that Pangu never really had the tool in the first place and that it is now being controlled by Apple itself.
This is, in fact, one of the latest conspiracy theory around the jailbreaking community. For some reasons, a few avid jailbreaking fans think that the most prominent team in the community is now being paid by Apple to further its plans.
According to an article from 1 Red Drop, Pangu’s iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool announcement could be a plot to get users to upgrade to iOS 10.3. And once the upgrade is done, there is no way of going back.
For those who are unaware, jailbreaking an iOS device relies heavily on the previous iteration of the OS as a fall back. Some jailbreaking tool will require users to upgrade or downgrade to a certain version of iOS before proceeding with the jailbreaking process. With the absence of an older version of the mobile OS, jailbreaking would be next to impossible. This is why Apple almost immediately stops signing older iOS versions once the new one gets released.
Going back on the conspiracy theory, it claims that Apple is incentivizing the Pangu team to help the company secure users and get them to upgrade to iOS 10.3. Once done, it will be less likely for users to jailbreak their devices especially when it stops signing the older version of the OS. Furthermore, the plot is said to put an end to the jailbreaking community altogether.
It also claimed that, like Luca Todesco, the team is also possibly included in Apple’s Bug Bounty program.
Be that as it may, there will definitely a new comer that will spring out of nowhere. The only thing is, we may never know when exactly that will happen. As for fans of the Pangu jailbreaking tool, let us all put out fingers crossed and hope that it will still get release sometime in the future.
