iOS 10 Jailbreak Latest News & Update: Pangu Working On A Lost Cause

By Snooky Grawls , Updated Oct 10, 2016 12:00 AM EDT

Apple has been rolling out iOS updates faster than hackers expect them, much of which was meant to address device owner complaints than fend off the threat of potential iOS jailbreaks. That said, any hope of an iOS 10 jailbreak seeing the light of day is looking bleaker by the day.

The latest operating system available is iOS 10.0.2, something meant to address an issue tied up with the iPhone 7’s call audio. Prior to this, iOS 10.0.1 was released to address a security exploit brought to the attention o f Apple.

Collateral damage

Pangu and other hacker groups who have tried to crack iOS 10 have become unfortunate victims of collateral damage as covered in a previous post. Attention has been mostly to patch things up with issues that have cropped up recently, a reality that plagues Apple whenever it releases new mobile operating systems.

Is Pangu working on an iOS 10 crack at all?

Looking ahead, it doesn’t seem like Pangu has any answers at all. Their famed iOS 10 jailbreaks were supposed to be the last card but Apple never gave them the opportunity to roll it out.

Moving ahead, it would not be surprising if Apple’s upbeat practice of rolling out immediate updates will become a recurring practice. It does speak well for the Cupertino company and pushes Pangu, TaiG and other hackers to a corner.

Will this be the end of iOS jailbreaks? Unless Pangu is able to come up with a reliable crack for the iOS 10 and future operating systems, it may take some time before an iOS 10 jailbreak and up soon.

The best hacker groups are to continue to work on an iOS 10 jailbreak and up moving forward. There may be no certainty but they can establish a base core of codes which can be (easily) appended each time a new mobile OS is released.
