Apple users are patiently waiting for the next jailbreak tool of iOS devices. After the rollout of iOs 9.3.1, some believed that its jailbreak will be released as well, but it did not happen. For those wanting to know more, here's the latest round of update about iOS 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 jailbreak release date for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
In the past few weeks, there were reports that Chinese hacking group TaiG has finished a jailbreak tool for iOs 9.3. However, it turned out the tool is fake and didn't came from the group. The jailbreak tool from fake TaiG website only made fancy animations when Apple users installed it.
When users try to find jailbreak tools, they search on Google, but most of the time they end up in an unfamiliar website that could harm their devices.
Security experts warned that these fake jailbreak tools could install malware on devices, so it's wise to steer clear of them. Also, it could hack users' personal information.
Antony Leather of Forbes previously said the next jailbreak tool could come in iOS 9.3, which features the biggest set of updates. The last jailbreak tool for iOs came out October last year.
The iOs 9.3 brings Night Shift, some UI updates, security updates, more languages for Siri and some general updates. Also, there are small security tweaks to protect user's notes taken from iPhone. The 9.3.1 patch update provides fixes for instability issues and system bugs.
As of this writing, there is no working jailbreak software for iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, 9.3 or 9.3.1. Hence, if there are websites that claim they have jailbreak tool for these iOS versions, it is highly likely that they are hacking programs.
Team Pangu has legit jailbreak tools for 9.1, 9.0.2, 9.0.1, and 9.0, and Taig has tools for 8.4, 8.3, 8.2, and 8.1.3.
Many users want to jailbreak their devices to install tools and other applications that are not available on the official Apple iOS software. Jailbroken devices get their applications in Cydia. Furthermore, jailbroken devices have tons of benefits. Users can have personalized customization options, access to hidden files and developer tools like SSH.
However, Apple discourages this practice because it exposes users to hacking programs and malwares. To stop jailbreak softwares, the Cupertino-based tech giant fortifies its operating system and releases patch update regularly.
For now, there's still no firmware release date for new jailbreak tools, so stay tuned for more updates.
