iOS 9.2.1 has been released a couple of weeks back, and alongside, Apple is also working on iOS 9.3 for an official release. iOS 9.3 betas are being tested by developers and public testers, but what we are really waiting for is an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak. The Pangu iOS 9 jailbreak was killed by Apple with the release of iOS 9.1, and since then, we haven’t received any jailbreak. But some interesting developments have occurred since then. Let’s talk about those.
For those who are on iOS 9-iOS 9.0.2 and are looking for the next jailbreak, make sure you don’t update to iOS 9.2.1 until a jailbreak arrives. Upgrade to iOS 9.2.1 only if you don’t care about jailbreaking. Meanwhile, recent activities have suggested that iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3 have already been jailbroken, but haven’t been released. Even iOS 9.2 is said to be jailbroken, but experts say that it is too buggy to be released for the regular users.
Remember how iOS 8.4.1 patched iOS 8.4 jailbreak? Well, it is being said that iOS 9.2.1 has patched a lot of security vulnerabilities that could be used for jailbreaking iOS 9.2. But the reason why jailbreak teams did not release an iOS 9.2 jailbreak is that the firmware contained too many security loopholes that would compromise the users’ safety to a great extent. iOS 9.2.1 brings a lot of fixes and makes the security tighter, which is great for users who don’t want to jailbreak.
Recently, the Italian developer Luca Todesco has been hogging the limelight by claiming that he succeeded in jailbreaking iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3 while they were in their beta phase. However, the developer has no plans of releasing those jailbreaks, so we shouldn’t keep any hope from him.
Meanwhile, industry experts are suggesting users to update to iOS 9.2.1 as it is more secure than iOS 9.2. So get the update if you want to remain on stock iOS. But if you have got jailbreaking on your mind, then you should stay on iOS 9.2 until a jailbreak is released for it. Considering the current situation, an iOS 9.3 jailbreak seems more probable, so it’s just a few weeks before we get to hear something about it.
