The year 2016 is Apple’s year for software upgrades. From iOS 10 to macOS Sierra, the number of upgrades this year have been quite high. The iOS 9.3.4 update was released just a few days back. It brought in some important security fixes. At the same time, the update made iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak by Pangu obsolete. If you have the option for downgrading back to iOS 9.3.3, well, you can still retain the jailbreak.

The concern here isn’t the downgrade option but of Apple stopping iOS 9.3.3 signing. When this happens, users will be forced to restore devices to iOS 9.3.4. That also means you will not have the jailbroken device any more. With the stopping of iOS 9.3.3 signing imminent, as reported by wccftech, a developer who goes by the name of qwertyoruiop on Twitter has teased a jailbroken iOS 9.3.4 iPhone 6s.

If you are already excited that a 9.3.4 jailbreak is coming soon, don’t be! This jailbreak may never be released to the public because this particular developer is pretty famous for showing off a handful of jailbreaks without actually releasing them to the public, owing to certain reasons. But this means that iOS 9.3.4 CAN be jailbroken.

What remains to be seen is when Pangu and the like will come up with the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.4. The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 was very well received. Pangu and TaiG will have to work on finding the necessary exploits to make the jailbreak happen soon. But until any official confirmation is received, it’s better to not keep any hopes for iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak.

Final Word

Wish to retain jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3? Then stay away from iOS 9.3.4. If you upgrade to iOS 9.3.4 with the intention of downgrading to iOS 9.3.3, then you never know when Apple will stop signing the firmware versions. If on the other hand you aren’t really concerned about jailbreaking, we suggest you to go ahead with the iOS 9.3.4 update since it brings in important security fixes.

If you face any issues during the upgrade, feel free to keep us posted.
