After releasing iOS 9.3.5, it will be interesting if Pangu will come up with a surprise jailbreak soon. Seeing however that iOS 10 is on the verge of being announced, it may not be feasible for the hacking group to do so.

iOS 10 is expected to come out alongside the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 in San Francisco this Sept. 7 though its roll-out could take weeks to happen. Just the same, the best route for Pangu to appease the Apple jailbreaking community is to instead work on an iOS 10 for longer use.

Apple’s sneaky move

As mentioned in a previous post, the untimely release of iOS 9.3.5 cut short the use of the iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak. For Apple owners, applying the latest iOS is a must seeing that it was really meant to cover up security flows used by an Israeli group (NSO) to spy on dissidents and journalists.

More to that, Apple owners will find themselves in a compromising position, hence the reason as to why most are urged to apply the latest patch. It was never rolled out to address the iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak, an unfortunate casualty.

Pangu’s deck growing thin

Hence, Pangu finds itself back to square one. The logical move is to work on that iOS 10 crack which they had shown off previously at MOSEC 2016.

Though it was only a beta version for iOS 10, a lot may have changed already with successive updates to the upcoming operating system. Regardless, the tweaks needed to make it work on current Apple devices would be minimal compared to a jailbreak that would start from scratch.

Pangu is now on the clock to come up with an iOS jailbreak, though the unannounced release of the iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak could be a sign of good things ahead. The fact that they can release untethered versions fast can be considered a bright spot for Apple jailbreaking fans.

Expect the heat to pick up on Pangu should Apple officially unveil the iOS 10 in the coming days. Stay tuned to Game & Guide for more iOS 10 news.
