Apple is still working on iOS 10 and is expected to release it in September. There are rumors that the release of iOS 10 jailbreak tool will happen soon after the launch of the latest operating system. However, it may not happen as soon as expected.
The Pangu team demonstrated the iOS 10 jailbreak tool during the Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC) held in Shanghai, China last July 1. Since then, it was speculated that the team will release the jailbreak soon after the launch of iOS 10. For now, it seems things will not go as expected.
Earlier, it was expected that the 9.3.3 is the final version of iOS 9.3. However, Apple released iOS 9.3.4 just to fix the crack that led Pangu to create its jailbreak tool. It means now the company knows the weakness of iOS. If this is the same crack that Pangu team used in iOS 10 jailbreak tool, it is highly likely that the current jailbreak tool will not work any more. However, team Pangu has not released any statement regarding the jailbreak tool for iOS 10.
Apple even mentioned team Pangu in the security note for iOS 9.3.4 update. Apple wrote, ?IOMobileFrameBuffer? issue could enable an app (Pangu jailbreak tool), ?to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.?
Although it is just a speculation, it is better to take precautionary actions. Jailbreak fans are advised not to update their devices, at least until Pangu release new information about upcoming jailbreak. Once the users update their device, they will not be able to use jailbreak. However, Apple is still signing iOS 9.3.3, but they can stop signing it in the future.
Apple just released the iOS 10 beta 6 to its registered developers. The company will most probably release the new operating system in September.
Meanwhile, interested iOS 9.3.3 users can download its jailbreak tool. However, the jailbreak tool is semi-tethered. That means jailbreak users have to relaunch the tool every time they reboot the device. The Pangu team has ruled out the rumors of the release of untethered iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
