Of late, the iOS jailbreak hasn’t been in a good state. Pangu, the one team that everybody relied on for iOS jailbreaks, has maintained an unusual silence when it comes to iOS 10 jailbreaks. There were rumors that Pangu has been silently working on iOS 10 jailbreak but nothing solid and stable has yet been announced by the team. A few jailbreakers like Luca Todesco and TaiG have come up with their own tools. But Todesco’s Yalu latest jailbreak for iOS 10 is by no means bug-free and leaves a lot of room for fixes and improvements. And now, it looks like iOS 10.3 jailbreak may never become a reality, all thanks to Apple’s new file system.
iOS 10.3 jailbreak may never become a reality
Apple has finally decided to tackle the jailbreaking menace head on. Jailbreakers around the world are having a tough time with the recent iOS version. In what seems to be an endless web of complex codes, the hackers are having a tough time figuring out the codes for the most recent iOS version. Given the slow developments for iOS 10.3 jailbreak, it looks like we may not see one anytime soon or we may never see one at all.
So what’s giving hackers and jailbreakers a hard time? It looks like the new Apple File System (APFS) is doing more harm than good for jailbreakers. For the uninitiated, the APFS is the next-generation file system designed to scale from an Apple Watch to a Mac Pro and is optimized for Flash/SSD storage and engineered with encryption as a primary feature. After introducing APFS, Apple has done away with HFS+ that has been in Apple devices since 1998.
With the new APFS, it looks like the Cupertino company has put in methods to help protect its own OS, which the jailbreakers and hackers are finding hard to crack. APFS has been designed to offer protection to OS and will also allow for single-code base. This will prove to be advantageous to Apple in the sense that it requires lesser resources to be developed and maintained. Considering all the complexity surrounding iOS 10.3, we may never get to see iOS 10.3 jailbreak. Disappointing, isn’t it?
