iOS firmware is routinely jailbroken, usually quite quickly after it is released. It is something we have become used to, come to expect and when it doesn’t happen, the jailbreak community tends to get a little impatient. iOS 10 has been released, making its way out for download on September 13th and already it has been updated to iOS 10.0.1.

Despite only being out for a short while, jailbreakers are already clamoring for an iOS 10 jailbreak utility [ext link], possibly not helped by recent events. Well known Italian hacker, Luca Todesco has already provided us with evidence of an iPad jailbroken on iOS 10 and an iPhone 7 jailbroken on iOS 10.0.1. Although his jailbreaks are purely for research purposes and he never releases them, some users are questioning why Pangu or Taig can’t come up with an iOS 10 jailbreak as quickly.

Apple has just seeded iOS 10.1 download [ beta 1 ] to developers and this is very likely to hold up the release of any jailbreak. It takes time to find and exploit vulnerabilities, to turn them into a safe and fully working jailbreak that everyone can use and, with the new firmware expected to be released publicly quite quickly, neither team is likely to want to waste what they have, only to have it patched in a few week’s time. Because the beta release contains features that are aimed at the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus, there are bound to be a large number of users who want to update to it when it comes out. In light of that, an iOS 10.1 jailbreak [ext link] is likely to be the next one released.
iOS 10.1 Jailbreak Release Date :
Obviously, we don’t really know what Taig or Pangu have planned but we do know that they are both working on all iOS 10 versions, including the 10.1 beta and will make their decision based on what they find through their testing processes. At this stage, we would urge you not to update if you are using PPHelper jailbreak because you will lose it and you will not be able to downgrade back to an iOS version that can be jailbroken. Also, don’t expect any word on an iOS 10.1 jailbreak until it is ready to be released – neither team talks about what they are doing so as not to give Apple too much of a head start on patching the vulnerabilities too quickly.
