It has been a while since there have been any advancement in the world of jailbreaking.  The last time was a few months ago with iOS 9.1, but now there is a way to jailbreak the latest version of iOS with 9.3.3. Here is a way to jailbreaking 9.3.3 with a How-To Guide and Instructions, as well as what to expect for iOS 10. 

According to CNET, the new Apple iOS 9.3.3 upgrade can be jailbroken.  This particular hack, also known as PPHelper, was developed by the famous Pangu Team.  The tool currently supports only Windows computers and is compatible with 64-bit iOS devices.  Also only a Chinese version of the tool is available with instructions in Chinese, but there should be an English edition that will pop up. 

Lifehacker calls this particular iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak as "clunky".  If you wish to install this, I'm going to have to make the typical jailbreaking disclaimer about knowing what you are doing.  PPHelper is not a tethered or untethered jailbreak, but somewhere in the middle or "semi-tethered".  For those not in the jailbreak know, tethered means that the user must re-enable the jailbreak via your computer each time to boot up your mobile device, while untethered means that the jailbreak doesn't require your computer to re-enable it. 

If you are really not in the jailbreaking know, here's what 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. 

For those that want to do the jailbreak, and you have iOS 9.3.3 on your iPhone or iPad, here is how.  There is a Reddit thread with a full text guide, as well as a video from 9to5 Mac to walk you through. 

So, if there is a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3, does this mean that one for iOS 10 is on the way?  Well, if you know how the jailbreaking game is played, then you know that jailbreakers are able to break one form of iOS.  Then Apple just comes out with a new version of their iOS, which makes that jailbreaking moot to those who want the latest.  Since iOS 10 is about ready to be released, it might not be wise to upgrade from iOS 9.3.3 if you want a jailbroken iDevice for the next generation of iOS.
