This January, Apple fans might see the launching of jailbreaks for iOs 9.1 and iOs 9.2. However, Apple beefs up their security system as they release the second beta of an upcoming iOS 9.2.1 update to developers and public beta analyzers. Here is the latest update on Apple iOS.
Almost a month ago, the tech giant released the iOS 9.2--the second major update to iOS 9.The update includes a long list of bug fixes and systems improvement to iBooks, Apple Music, Apple News and many more. Now, the second iOS 9.2.1 beta is available over-the-air update for those who already have the first beta. The update is also available in Apple Developer Center.
Meanwhile, as Apple Company tries to strengthen their system security, many users wait for the jailbreak software of iOS 9. Popular hacking groups reportedly have significant progress in developing the jailbreak tools, according to Popular Science.
Team Taig allegedly has jailbreak software, but they are still testing it before releasing publicly. The team is reportedly working on an untethered version of the software, and they ask the public to be patient.
On the other hand, Team Pangu has semi-jailbreak tool available for download, but some users are reluctant to use as it may damage their devices. For interested Apple users, we previously published the steps on how to install the semi-jailbreak tool from Pangu.
Tech experts said as the demand for the jailbreak tools increases, other hacking groups may also be working to unlock the iOS 9 restrictions.
Jailbreaking is described as the method of going into the device's security system and unlock its restrictions imposed by the phone manufacturer. In the case of iPhones, jailbreak tools try to hack the Apple's software. Users with jailbreak software can install previously unavailable apps in their devices.
Many iPhone users want to jailbreak their devices, but the Apple discourages this practice. The California-based tech giant particularly likes to cite the security compromises that jailbreaking often leads to, and there can be problems for iOs 9 users when the company closes the backdoor that led to the jailbreak.
In the latest second beta test of iOS 9.2.1, Apple will bring several performance improvements that have been found since the release of iOS 9.2.
Nonetheless, many iPhone users still consider the advantages of jailbreaking to considerably outweigh the downsides. They can do unlimited customization in their devices through the practice and they can install apps that would not pass the Apple verification process.
