So far, the advancement in the world of jailbreaking came with iOS 9.1, and with the iOS 9.3.3 here soon, most are wondering when the jailbreaking for it or iOS 9.3.2 is coming. Of course, it is possible that iOS 10 could be jailbroken first, as it is just about to be released. Here are the possible release dates for iOS 9.3.2, iOS 9.3.3, and iOS 10.
Something that I forgot to report on last week when it came to the Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC) held last July 1st was how Pangu and PoC, a Korean-based hacker team, demonstrated running the Cydia app manager on iOS 10. According to iTech Post, no jailbreak tools were offered, for this iOS 10, which is still under beta. The actual iOS 10, when it finally gets released, could be harder to crack, but it is good that these hackers got a hold of their weaknesses.
This particular group made some kind of demonstration about the lack of security for Apple devices running on iOS 9.3.2, and they are working on jailbreaking this version with the intention of launching it as soon as possible. By the way, these Korean hackers deny that such an announcement was made, so I guess they want to keep it on the hush side until they can actually get it out there.
In the meantime, there are rumors saying that it is possible that the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 might even arrive before the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak, according to Neurogadget. In fact, several developers have discovered that the firmware has privacy issues, and some have complained that the current version has had problems with sudden reboots as well as problems with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Touch ID, and Apple Music.
So, it is possible that iOS 9.3.3 could be more stable than iOS 9.3.2, and the jailbreak could be taking advantage of any vulnerabilities as it is designed to do. It is possible that iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak will be coming soon, and possibly before iOS 10 gets its official release date in September. So, we are looking at an iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak in August, perhaps?
Of course, even my source states that this news, exciting as it is, should be taken with a grain of salt. It is possible that the jailbreak should be happening for iOS 9.3.2 or iOS 10 first.
If you are not familiar 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 also 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.
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. Jailbreaking and iDevice brings in a lot of viruses and bugs but it can also compromise the security of the Apple devices.
