Apple is doing its best to fix multiple issues across its software, but not all improvements are impossible to decipher. Teams of hackers announced that they will release jailbreak tools for iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 before the end of 2015.
Jailbreaking is described as the process of eliminating restrictions imposed by Apple's operating system on devices. Jailbreak permits root access to the system to install additional apps that are not available on Apple App Store.
Apple users are expecting hacking groups like Team PanGu to release jailbreak software for the iOS 9.1 and 9.2.
As of now, PanGu launched their Semi Jailbreak online script for iOs 9.1. This is the only solution available online at the moment, but the semi jailbreak is not fully functional yet.
Some users are still reluctant to use this Semi Jailbreak tool as it can damage their devices. Previously, Apple disabled the iOS 9.1 downgrading option, so if a user made a mistake to update their iPhone or iPad to this version, then they'll be stuck with it until iOS 9.2 is released.
If you are interested in using this feature, here are the steps to install the semi jailbreak.
First, go to the semi jailbreak official website using the Safari browser. Take note that before starting the jailbreak process, bookmark the page, in case the jailbreak does not become successful, this will restart the process automatically.
Tap on the iOS 9.1 jailbreak button and let your iOS version be verified. After that, press the Continue button, which will initiate the jailbreak process. It will take between 20 to 40 seconds to complete.
Before the jailbreak is over, you'll be redirected to the installation menu to install the Semi Jailbreak application to your device. Once the installation is finished, click exit button, and this will conclude the jailbreak installation.
You can use the vShare Semi jailbreak app manager to install the Cydia, the jailbreak app store.
As of now, there are no successfully jailbreakers. Just keep in mind that this feature is not yet fully functional, and it could ruin your device.
Associated Press recently published that computer security firm Zerodium is offering $1 million (890,000-euro) bounty to hackers who can crack the system of Apple's iOS 9.
To grab the bounty, hackers must use a web page or text message to bypass remotely the iOS 9 security features.
The security firm claimed that Apple's operating system is the most secure in the market. The reward aims to find if there are vulnerabilities in the security system. The result will help corporate and government agency clients to strengthen their online defenses.
Apple recently made significant developments to beef up their system's wall, making it more difficult for hackers to crack the iOS 9 system. Some are concerned that Apple may have been too stringent in fighting jailbreaking, affecting the freedom that even power users previously enjoyed.
One of the main concerns of the company is to protect Apple users from malicious software and information leak.
