iOS 10 Jailbreak Release Date, Latest News & Update: New Hope Spurred With Pangu’s Alleged Crack Breakthrough
Apple claims that iOS 10 is unbreakable though hacker groups beg to differ. In fact, Pangu says that they have already found a way to crack the latest mobile operating system from the Cupertino company. The only thing left now is for them to actually release the crack and their credibility may be restored.
The dish of Pangu is nothing new considering they have had success issuing past iOS jailbreaks. iOS 10 is far from the best mobile operating system that Apple has given so far, something that needed immediate patches due to bugs and security issues. The latest version is iOS 10.0.3 which was seen to address a previous security issue brought forward by Elcomsoft as mentioned in a previous post.
Hearing Pangu claim that they have an iOS 10 jailbreak may sound like old news. Everyone saw them present their piece at MOSET 2016 but that alleged crack never really saw the light of day. With Apple releasing iOS 10.0.1, 10.0.2 and 10.0.3, any jailbreak from Pangu and other hackers was seen like a lost cause.
Speed of cracked release kills
Speaking of iOS releases, the frequency of release is seen as something that may push hackers back more. Though some Apple owners may hold off their iOS updates for own reasons, the number of people who would resort to an iOS 10 jailbreak has obviously dwindled.
Despite the smaller window of opportunity, Pangu does have a slim chance of showing that an iOS 10 jailbreak is achievable with possibly some added perks. More functionality that would allow the alleged iOS 10 crack to a wider niche of devices is allegedly the new feature to watch out for, Neurogadget reported.
Will an iOS 10 jailbreak still make sense?
Considering Apple is now on iOS 10.0.3, an iOS 10 jailbreak makes little sense. Then again, the remaining folks who prefer to stop updating to the latest OS could still be prime targets. Apple fans who are still on it may be little but is better than not giving Pangu and other hacker groups a chance to show they can still crack codes.
