With the demand for an iOS 10 jailbreak seemingly growing by the minute, renowned hacking entity still remains silent to date. However, a new report suggests that the release of a jailbreak tool could be closer than expected.

Pangu to Release Jailbreak Tool Soon

ICrackUriDevice, a YouTube channel dedicated to cracking Apple devices, had linked to a post for the Pangu jailbreak. This then appears to be the Senior Security Engineer of Alibaba, with a Twitter account called SparkZheng. The user then claims that an iOS 10 jailbreak will indeed be released, but no exact date was still given.

While this might come off as sketchy for some, this could actually be a legitimate assertion, as Alibaba had reportedly acquired 25PP back in 2014. 25PP is the developer that has a contribution in the jailbreaks made by Pangu. The connection between the two company may serve as the missing link, confirming the claims of SparkZheng. So, is iOS 10 jailbreak is totally coming?

To further support his statement, the Alibaba Security Engineer who made the Twitter post was reportedly the exact same person who succeeded in jailbreaking the iOS 9.3.4. If this were true, then the iOS 10 jailbreak is definitely coming.

Open Source Feature

As if Twitter is not public enough, the user had also posted on Weibo, translating his claims on the iOS 10 jailbreak to the Chinese region. Pangu is definitely working on the hacking tool for the most recent mobile operating system for Apple, and is even reported to bring a few changes. This includes the very useful open source system feature for the iPhone 7 once the device is jailbroken.

Why the Delay?

According to the same source, the release of the iOS 10 jailbreak has been drastically delayed due to the very time-consuming and meticulous process it takes to hack the system. However, anticipating fans should not worry, as Pangu has already demoed that the iOS 10 is susceptible to hacking and could be perfectly exploited.
