Apple released the iOS 10.2.1 update on January 23, bringing new features for Apple fans, but those who wait for the iOS 10.2 jailbreak to appear are not recommended to install the update. Pangu promised the iOS 10.2 Jailbreak tool availability a while ago, but the hacking group still hasn’t come with the working solution.
The reason for the new delay could be the fact that Apple started releasing new updates very frequently, creating problems for groups trying to come up with the jailbreak. It is possible for Pangu to wait for a stable version of iOS 10 in order to finish work on their jailbreak tool.
Rumors talk about Pangu showing a demo of the latest firmware (iOS 10.2.1) vulnerability but the group is still silent about it. It seems Pangu is working on patching loopholes before releasing a public, stable version of the iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak tool.
At the moment, the group offers a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3, the best solution for setting free your iOS device at the moment.
On the other hand, Luca Todesco released his iOS 10 jailbreak tool, but his solution is still in beta and is effective only on 64-bit devices that run on iOS 10 to iOS 10.1.1. Todesco’s Yalu iOS 10 jailbreak works only with following models at the moment: iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and the iPhone SE.
Stefan Esser, a prominent iOS hacker and security expert, stated that a stable iOS 10.2 jailbreak may come soon. He also hinted that his upcoming tool could remove problems that came with the iOS 10.1.1.
Todesco could release a stable version of his program soon, and may users believe Pangu will also come up with a working jailbreak solution in the near future. For now, though, your only option is to use Todesco’s Yalu jailbreak tool, or to wait for him, Pangu, or someone else, release a stable iOS 10 jailbreak tool.
