A lot of iOS users have already upgraded to iOS 9.3 that was released earlier this week. Being the third major update in iOS 9 series, iOS 9.3 brings a range of new features including Night Shift, which apparently reduces string on eyes in low light by controlling screen temperature. Thanks to the numerous tweaks and fixes under the hood, iOS 9.3 is the most stable iOS release till date, which is exactly the reason why an iOS 9.3 jailbreak is highly desired at this point.
As of now, we only have iOS 9 jailbreaks for up to iOS 9.1, and all the further iOS versions above that remain unjailbroken. But how long shall we have to wait to get the next jailbreak? Well, it seems the wait isn’t going to be as long as we expected earlier. Rumors are saying that TaiG and Pangu are working on a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3, and the exploits for that were found in iOS 9.2.1 and were not patched in iOS 9.3.
But if that was the case, why didn’t any team release an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak? Because iOS 9.3 brings new features and is more stable and faster than iOS 9.2.1. But if a jailbreak for iOS 9.2.1 was released, Apple would have patched the exploits in iOS 9.3, which would have made it difficult to almost impossible to jailbreak iOS 9.3. This would have deprived us of all the new features that we would otherwise get in iOS 9.3.
However, iOS 9.3 has been released finally, which is why our next expectation should be an iOS 9.3 jailbreak. Some reports are saying that the jailbreak teams might need some weeks for testing the jailbreak tool to make sure that they are ready for public use. And we really appreciate that, as the last thing we would want from a jailbreak is bugs and security issues. Also, Apple will most probably release iOS 9.3.1 to patch iOS 9.3 jailbreak, which is why we must be sure that we are on a bug-free version.
It was earlier being speculated that iOS 9.3 might come with high-tech security refinements that would make it unjailbreakable. But popular hacker Luca Todesco reached out to the iOS public and demonstrated an iOS 9.3 beta jailbreak, thus making it clear that iOS 9.3 is jailbreakable. Of course, Todesco himself had no intentions of releasing the jailbreak, so he might pass on the exploits to TaiG or Pangu to turn it into a jailbreak tool ready for the regular users.
Though it’s too early to make any speculations about the iOS 9.3 jailbreak release date, some rumors say that the jailbreak might get released in April. But let’s not keep too much faith in rumors and let’s wait for more concrete information to come out. We’ll keep you updated as we learn anything new about it.
