Now that Apple has released the beta version of iOS 9.3 to developers through the company's developer portal or OTA, it is expected that jailbreakers will be working very soon on the release of a jailbreak version for both iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.2.
While it was rumored earlier that TaiG is already working on a jailbreak version for iOS 9.2, it seems the hackers are still not ready to release the hacked version of the operating system. For the most part, consumers who have been waiting for a jailbreak version of iOS 9.2 have actually been updating their devices, something that shouldn't be done to make jailbreaking a lot easier for hackers such as TaiG and Pangu 9.
iOS security researcher Luca Todesco took to Twitter last week, warning consumers of updating devices. "rule of thumb: if you want your devices to be exploitable, don't update them. patched bugs are better for jb vs dropping 0day all the time," he said.
Aside from telling fans to keep themselves from hitting the Update button, Todesco also gave a clear picture of how the hackers are doing on the most-awaited 9.2 jailbreak. "psa: 9.2 is much harder to jailbreak than 9.1, so if you are on 9.1, don't update," he explained.
His comments then gave some outlets the idea that both TaiG and Pangu 9 may be struggling with the task since consumers are apt to clicking Update whenever an update is available for their devices.
While downloadable jailbreaks are already available for 9.0, 9.0.1, and 9.0.2, a version for 9.2 is probably some months away since there is still the 9.1 to be infiltrated and the latter is more likely to get a jailbreak than the newer OS.
According to iDigital Times, Todesco isn't very optimistic about the release of a 9.2 jailbraek version since the original from Apple is an "extremely difficult" system to break through, meaning it is too early to say that a downloadable jailbreak version will be out anytime soon.
