iOS 10 Jailbreak Release Date, News & Update: Apple Shuts Out Pangu With iOS 10.0.1

Apple has technically shut out Pangu and its iOS jailbreaking intentions with the release of iOS 10.0.1. With the release of the latest mobile OS, all hopes of seeing that much-hyped iOS 10 jailbreak is now officially useless.

Back-to-back iOS rollouts

Similar to how it rolled out iOS 9.3.5, the release of iOS 10.0.1 was something that came out sooner than expected. The file size varies and largely depends on what device would be applying the update (i.e. iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 2 Mini, iPad Pro, and iPod Touch), Forbes reported.

Regardless, this means that any jailbreak in use will be futile. Once the update is applied, any prior iOS jailbreaks can no longer be cracked. The only way for Apple device owners to enjoy the luxuries of a jailbroken device is if Pangu, TaiG or any hacking group can come up with an iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak.

Is Pangu slowing down?

In a previous post, it was reported that Pangu was allegedly having problems with their iOS 10 jailbreak. This was tied up to errors tied up to Cydia and likely something that kept the Chinese hacking group from officially rolling out an iOS 10 crack.

Hence, hacking groups are brought down back to reality with the iOS 10.0.1 rollout, meaning the cat-and-mouse game continues. Judging by the frequency of updates, Apple is one step ahead of Pangu and the rest.

What does iOS 10.0.1 bring?

iOS 10.0.1 brings the expected fixes that include the prevention of “Hey Siri” requests and Bluetooth connection issues. Improvements to audio quality are reportedly included plus improvements to the device camera and Contact apps.

While it technically makes an iOS 10 jailbreak useless, although a peculiar exploit could still make it work. Aside from that, there is that slim possibility that some Apple users have held off updates so that they can see what an iOS 10 jailbreak has to offer.

Other than that, the fact remains that Pangu has struck out with Apple covering the bases. It remains to be seen if Pangu can show off a new set of iOS jailbreaks moving forward.
