If you want to get your iOS device free from the limits Apple has set for it, you can jailbreak it to open up hundreds of customization possibilities. After jailbreaking, you can control your iPhone or iPad the way you want, which is why jailbreaking is as popular as iOS itself.
However, Apple hates jailbreaks, as they mean that the company isn’t working hard enough on the security of iOS. This is why Apple keeps raising the security levels with every iOS update, and with every update, it gets harder for hackers and jailbreak teams to find loopholes in iOS. It becomes harder for them to find vulnerabilities in iOS that could lead to a jailbreak.
As of now, users only have an iOS 9.1 jailbreak, which was released by Pangu recently. For most of the users, the jailbreak came late as they already updated to iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1. Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.1, which means the downgrade is not possible. As of now, we are on iOS 9.3.1, which apparently fixes some critical bugs found in iOS 9.3. But some rumors say that it is still possible that an iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak might be released while users are actually waiting for the iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak.
Hackers say that iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.2 are jailbreakable, and the same has been confirmed by Italian hacker Luca Todesco weeks ago when he demonstrated his iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak. Of course, there’s no way to prove it, but we’ve got to listen to the experts. No jailbreak team, including Pangu and TaiG, have released an iOS 9.2 jailbreak or an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak. But now that we are on iOS 9.3.1, will they ever release it?
Well, here’s the catch. iOS 9.2 was not as stable and had serious security vulnerabilities, which is why no jailbreak team would risk releasing a jailbreak for that version. Moving on to iOS 9.2.1, it is stable and has much lesser bugs than iOS 9.2. But iOS 9.3 was going to be released with some new features, which made it important for jailbreak teams to jailbreak it. However, it too was plagued with bugs that Apple patched in iOS 9.3.1, and it’s possible that some jailbreak exploits were patched too.
So if a jailbreak team has got an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak right now, it could be released anytime within a week. But if the hackers decide to wait and do some more hard work, we might directly see an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak that will be much more stable and will let users enjoy the latest iOS features which getting the ability to customize their iOS device to their heart’s content.
