Apple?s iOS 10.0.1 Gold Master Edition rolled out publicly few days back and clamour for the latest iOS 10 jailbreak tool is already on. Alongside unveiling of the all new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the Cupertino based tech giant went ahead with releasing new mobile operating system for iPhones, iPads and iPods. The update went live for the older Apple devices too that support A7 chipsets and later.
The last known jailbreak tool was released for the iOS 9.3.3 by the Chinese hackers Team Pangu. Devices owners who may have already upgraded to iOS 9.3.5 can?t access the previous jailbreak as Apple regularly deletes the previous iOS versions. With iOS 10 out the jailbreak community is highly anticipating a new tool for Apple?s biggest update ever.
iOS 10 has proved to be pretty much hackable and several people already made headway getting past Apple security. Lately a prominent hacker even jailbroke the latest iPhone 7 and it seems the wait for iOS 10 JB tool might end soon.
Luca Todesco jailbreaks iPhone 7
The 19-year old Italian Luca Todesco lately achieved the iOS 10 jailbreak in iPhone 7. The was able to crack Apple security in less than 24 hours, and uploaded video and photo on his twitter handle – @qwertyoruiop as evidence to prove his claim.

The developer posted an image on his Twitter showing a black iPhone 7 that has been hacked. It shows that Cydia 1.1.26 is already installed on the device. The?Cupertino giant has said that the latest iOS 10 update can prevent jailbreaks.
However, jailbreaking has definitely grown harder with new iPhone 7 and iOS 10. ?They definitely made my life harder,? Todesco told Motherboard in a message. ?The iPhone 7 is a step in the right direction. Obviously it?s not 100 percent secure?like nothing else is.?
Todesco to Release iOS 10 Jailbreak
Todesco told Motherboard that for now as usual he is keeping his jailbreak exploits private. He said at least till Apple releases security patch. However, he promised that he will release an iOS jailbreak tool in future.
?The hacker told me that he needs to polish the exploits a bit more to make the jailbreak ?smoother? and that he is also planning to make this jailbreak work through the Safari browser just like the famous ?jailbreakme.com? which allowed anyone to jailbreak their iPhone 4 just by clicking on a link.?
Hopefully, this means within few weeks a jailbreak for iOS 10 is going to hit the internet soon. You can check the eligibility for iOS 10 below:
Apple meanwhile has already released a new update with roll out of iOS 10.0.2 on September 22. This marks the company?s renewed stand to stop what it considers ?illegal? jailbreaks of their devices. ?Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks iOS,? the company states in a page on jailbreaking.
