iOS 9.3.3. Jailbreak Rumors: Apple Continues To Foil Hacking Groups With Beta Releases
The iOS jailbreaking news continue to plague the net with Apple continuing the cat-and-mouse game with Pangu and other aspiring hacking groups.
Right now, Apple is in the driver’s seat as it continues to defy the threat of jailbreaks from Pangu, TaiG, and the rest. Pangu caught the fancy of many following that trio of iOS jailbreaks made for the iOS 9.3.2, 9.3.3 and 10.
As everyone knows by now, Apple already thrashed one of them when they came out with the final version of iOS 9.3.3. It rendered the iOS 9.3.2 crack useless, leaving only the iOS 9.3.3. and iOS 10 jailbreaks as feasible solutions.
Semi-tethered jailbreak is fine but where is the full crack?
In a previous post, it was already mentioned that Pangu had a jailbreak that was ‘semi-tethered’. It was seen nothing more as saving grace for the hacking group since there was no full jailbreak revealed. The last full jailbreak came for the iOS 9.3.1.
With an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak crossed out, an iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak makes more sense with time constraints. Pangu and the rest have tried to crack it but have yet to release a working tool.
Pangu recently released an English version of the semi-tethered jailbreak though it may still be far from the much coveted untethered version.
Apple dictating hackers to play its game
With iOS 10 expected to come out in September, hacker groups have been losing a bit of their credibility as far as their ability to crack Apple’s operating systems. While it proves that the Cupertino company has been doing a fine job fending off vulnerabilities and patches, they are still leaving some windows open in the event of exploits uncovered.
The beta versions are the channels Apple is using and Pangu is biting. The key is Apple’s frequency of release, something that has been turning out timely.
If that is the case, any form of iOS jailbreak right now seems to depend if Apple would allow it. Claims are good but without an actual iOS jailbreak made public, theories don’t count for the Apple jailbreaking community.
