As we all known, Apple is currently working on iOS 9.3 betas and we’re sure that the final version is going to be released soon, probably in March itself. Meanwhile, iOS 9.2.1 was still in beta testing when iOS 9.3 betas started rolling so early, which was a bit surprising for everyone. Nevertheless, it has been said that the iOS 9.3 jailbreak is the only jailbreak we should be waiting for right now, and we have got some strong reasons to support it.
Let’s start the discussion with iOS 9.2. While iOS 9.2 is a significant release, experts say that the firmware isn’t clean and has got a lot of security vulnerabilities that could pose threat to the privacy of the users. As a result, users have been advised to leave iOS 9.2 and jump on to iOS 9.2.1 to keep their information safe. Even jailbreak experts like the Italian hacker Luca Todesco have said that an iOS 9.2 jailbreak has been found, but hackers are not releasing it as it is too buggy and has got too many security vulnerabilities that can harm users’ confidential data.
So we come to iOS 9.2.1, which does not add any new features but does fix loads of vulnerabilities and is hence more stable and much secure than iOS 9.2. This also means that it is harder to jailbreak now. And now that iOS 9.3 is going to be released this month, it wouldn’t be hard to guess that jailbreak teams are concentrating on the iOS 9.3 jailbreak. As iOS 9.3 will be more stable and secure than iOS 9.2.1 and will presumably bring new features, it will be better to jailbreak iOS 9.3 than to waste the exploits on jailbreaking iOS 9.2.1.
Hacker Luca Todesco had claimed that he jailbroke iOS 9.3 beta, but he did not release it. We do think that he might be thinking of sharing the exploits with the Pangu team, but as we said earlier, iOS 9.3 might be harder to jailbreak. This is why it might be longer than we thought before iOS 9.3 jailbreak comes out. Meanwhile, Apple is making harder for hackers to jailbreak iOS with every update.
Will we get an iOS 9.3 jailbreak release? Or is iOS heading towards complete impenetrability? Only time will tell.
