Good news for the jailbreak community. The latest iOS 9.3.3 has been jailbroken. After Apple released the Beta version of iOS 9.3.3 to developers, Italian hacker Luca Todesco reportedly found exploits that lead him to hack the system. Now, here's the latest round-up of update about Apple iOS 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, jailbreak release date and rumors.
To prove his claim, Luca Todesco posted an image on Twitter that shows jailbroken iOS 9.3.3. In the picture, there's an iPod touch that runs the Cydia jailbreak store, and it also displays the current version of iOS at the bottom.
In the past, Todesco hacked the security system of previous iOS 9.3 versions. However, he did not release his jailbreak tool to the public. It is still unknown if he would make the latest jailbreak tool available for anyone. Interestingly, popular hacking groups like Team Pangu and Taig could use the exploits that Todesco found to release a public version of iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
On the other hand, Anthony Leather of Forbes predicted that jailbreaking teams might skip the rest of the iOS 9 jailbreak to release a major tool. The iOS 10 is just around the corner, and it could be launched together with the iPhone 7 later this year. This prediction makes sense because hackers don't want to waste their time on the small updates. The forthcoming iOS 10 system is reportedly packed with latest security updates and features.
So far, the jailbreak community is disappointed by the lack of software releases this year. The only working jailbreak software this year is for iOS 9.1, which become available in March. After that, hacking groups only released exploits for the Apple TV jailbreak.
Readers are advised that there are no existing jailbreaks tools for iOS 9.2 and up. So avoid any website that says they have the latest iOS tool, even if they claim to do so in a browser, and certainly do not pay any money to download the software. The jailbreaking software has always been free for download.
