iOS 9.3 Jailbreak news: no public jailbreak update for users yet


With each iOS update, Apple has been cracking down on the jailbreak vulnerabilities of its current mobile operating system. This has made it very hard for developers and hackers to release jailbreak versions for the current iOS 9 OS.

Since the release of iOS 9 in September 2015, popular jailbreak source Pangu has been able to release jailbreak versions of the iOS 9, 9.1, and 9.2 updates. However, Apple quickly removed the vulnerabilities in their system that deactivated these versions.

Once again, earlier this month, the Pangu team was again successful in releasing the jailbreak for the older iOS 9.1 firmware. It seems that the Pangu team decided to focus on the older iOS 9.1 instead of 9.2, due to Apple's active attempts to block its jailbreak versions. This means that users who have already upgraded to iOS 9.2 will not be able to use this jailbreak version.

Just last week, Apple finally released the iOS 9.3 update. The latest update introduced 3D Touch shortcuts for the iPhone 6S, Night Shift Mode, and password protection for Notes and Touch ID. Improvements were also made to various apps like News and Health, Apple CarPlay, Siri, and battery life.

According to Redmondpie, Italian developer Luca Tedesco had already successfully proven that a jailbreak for iOS 9.3 is possible. However, he announced that he would not make the jailbreak public.

Thus, it doesn't seem like a jailbreak for iOS 9.3 will be made public anytime soon. According to Crossmap, Apple also included various bug fixes and patches in its current iOS, making it very hard for other hackers to jailbreak the mobile OS. While there is hope for an iOS 9.3 jailbreak, users will have to be patient in waiting for teams like Pangu to create their own version and publicly release it.

Be sure to check back for all the latest news and updates for the iOS 9.3 jailbreak.
