Nearly three months after the release of the latest OS of Apple devices, hackers remain clueless of the security flaws of the next generation iOS 10. With the Cupertino tech giant releasing Beta 7 of iOS 10.2 update, they are still silent on the latest jailbreaking tool.

In previous releases, tool developers feasted on the security breaches of iOS and released their jailbreak tool in a matter of days. But this is not the case with iOS 10.2. Even renowned Chinese hacking group Pangu was mum, and remains to be heard if it has breached iOS 10 like its predecessors. Though it claimed to have the jailbreak tool of iOS 10 days before its release, Pangu is yet to show proof of it.

Impenetrable Firmware

With this development, Apple meant business when it pointed out that the newest iOS 10 contains a security patch that makes iOS completely impenetrable. During the September 13 launch, Apple dared hackers and software developers to find a bug in the firmware while offering $100,000 reward for party that can penetrate the breach. iOS 10 also went through a rigorous beta release cycle, with 8 beta seeds in total for both developers and testers.

With the release of beta 7 of iOS 10.2 this week, Apple crushed hopes that iOS 10 jailbreak could still be possible while ending the cat-and-mouse relationship of the Cupertino giant and firmware security hackers from around the world.

The latest tools released by Pangu were jailbreak 9.0.0 and 9.3.3. However these may not be useable as of today with Apple assuring that its devices will never be jailbroken again.

What's with iOS 10.2 beta update?

The newest iOS 10.2 patch is equipped with over 70 new emojis like shrug and fingers crossed, additional camera and TV app settings. With it, your iPhone has now the easiest way to express celebrations and love message effects with more new wallpaper options.

Meantime, with the unbreachable iOS 10 firmware, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users can turn to TweakBox and Mojo. With these, user can install apps that are not available in Apple Store. With the uncertainty of a jailbreak tool, fans can start looking into these apps as handy alternative.
