For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of jailbreaking, it is a way to negate Apple's predetermined settings of the iPhone or iPad in order to gain more control over the iDevice.  It is a way for Apple users to enjoy access to their favorite brand of smartphones or tablet, particularly to the iOS files system and manager for downloading applications that are not available on the App Store.  The issue with jailbreaking is that there hasn't been a lot of new innovations in it recently, but this might have changed with the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreaking.  Assuming that the jailbreaking for that particular iOS is true, then jailbreakers are looking to iOS 9.3.3 and later iOS 10.

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of jailbreaking, it is a way to negate Apple's predetermined settings of the iPhone or iPad in order to gain more control over the iDevice.  It is a way for Apple users to enjoy access to their favorite brand of smartphones or tablet, particularly to the iOS files system and manager for downloading applications that are not available on the App Store.  The issue with jailbreaking is that there hasn't been a lot of new innovations in it recently, but this might have changed with the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreaking.  Assuming that the jailbreaking for that particular iOS is true, then jailbreakers are looking to iOS 9.3.3 and later iOS 10. 

According to Game N Guide, that big July 1st event that supposedly was going to be great for jailbreaking had Pangu showing off an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak demo.  This jailbreak offered a possible view of a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3, and attention seems to have shifted to this new version. 

There seems to be an idea that the reports of the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak have been categorized as "nothing more than plain rumors".  Forbes reports that this rumor possibility was revealed by Vangelis, the organizer of POC and MOSEC. 

There is going to be a lot of attention on jailbreaking with iOS 10 on the way.  In fact, there is a recent report on Phone Arena that Apple launched iOS 10 beta 2 as an Over The Air (OTA) update. 

It used to be that as soon as a new version of Apple's operating system showed up, it would only take a few weeks or even days for jailbreakers to crack it.  The last break in jailbreaking was iOS 9.1, and since then there has been iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, 9.3, and 9.3.1 in between. 

So what is the issue, or the hold-up, as seen by jailbreakers?  It is because Apple continues to launch new firmware versions with security patches, and they also continue to shut down the digital signing of older versions quicker, according to Redmond Pie

Well, there has already been some that have claimed that iOS 9.3 and even higher has been jailbroken, but those who have broken that, presumably, are not sharing that information, as yet. It is possible that this jailbreaking is about to become a trend that ends, if Apple manages to keep up with the jailbreakers. 

By the way, jailbreaking brings in a lot of viruses and bugs but it can also compromise the security of the Apple devices.  This is why I always recommend that potential jailbreakers know what they are doing before they attempt this process, and ask if it is worth the free apps they can get if they succeed.
