iOS 9.2 Jailbreak Update: Hackers Awaiting iOS 9.3 Release Date?

Apple patched and released iOS 9.2.1 in January, and the launch of iOS 9.3 is not so far, with developers testing the beta release now. However, fans who love to customize their iPhone and other Apple devices running iOS are still looking for the iOS 9.2 jailbreak.

Apple has been working rigorously to patch all the vulnerabilities that Pangu and TaiG were able to exploit in the previous versions. With the release of iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak early, chances are the company might come up with a solution to patch those with the release of iOS 9.3 next.

Although no public jailbreak release for iOS has arrived since the last Pangu 9 jailbreak for iOS 9.0-9.0.2, iOS hacker qwertyoruiop has demonstrated that it is possible to jailbreak untethered iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, and 9.3 beta.

The hacker demonstrated a video of the untethered jailbreak of iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2, where he launched Cydia to verify his iOS version, started Mobile Terminal to run his command, and even played with WinterBoard theme.

The hacker also says that the iOS 9.2 jailbreak was released to demonstrate that the jailbreak is possible and that we'll need to wait a little longer and leave it to the jailbreak developers before a final public jailbreak tool is released. As jailbreaking iOS 9.3 beta seems to be possible, there's no question if any older versions will not.

The Inquisitr previously reported about an Italian jailbreak developer Luca Tedesco who bragged to have jailbreak his iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.1. However, he still kept the jailbreak private and mentioned no details regarding if he will release it to the public anytime later.

Windknowm, a core developer for Pangu, the biggest jailbreak company in the world, recently published a technical article explaining the security and vulnerability fixes found in iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1. He even recommended iOS users update their devices to the latest version as soon as possible and avoid downloading or installing apps from unknown sources.
