However, Apple has reportedly closed all the loopholes in the latest ?iOS 10.0.1.? This means the Pangu team is going to take a lot of time to release the iOS 10 jailbreaking tool,?GameNGuide noted.

Just like the iOS 9.3.5, Apple released the minor version iOS 10.0.1 almost immediately after rolling out the major version. The iOS 10.0.1 is applicable for the iPhone 5 or higher, iPad 2 or higher, iPad Mini 2 or higher, iPad Pro series and the iPod Touch (Gen 6) or later.

Apple device users might have already received notifications to update to the latest OS version. If you have not received any alert, you can navigate to Settings -> General -> Software Update and get it done.

However, the size of the firmware update is not same for all the devices mentioned above. For instance, the iOS 10.0.1 update might vary between 25MB and 60MB,?Forbes noted.

In any case, the new firmware update makes the iOS 10 jailbreak tool expectations rudderless as the work done by Pangu so far will be of no use. Also, if you install the new update, the past iOS jailbreak techniques will be of no use. So the right thing to do now is to wait for Pangu or TaiG to release iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak tool instead.

The word online in the tech community is that Pangu is facing issues with the iOS 10 jailbreak. The problem has reportedly been narrowed down to Cydia.

With the number of frequent updates from Apple, it is going to be a Herculean task for the jailbreaking community to come up with a full-fledged or even, semi iOS 10 jailbreak tool in the near future.
