Just when we thought Apple was almost entirely done with iOS 9 updates (to focus development efforts on the forthcoming iOS 10 release), the company issued the first beta iteration of iOS 9.3.3 to registered developers this morning. Will iOS 9.3.3 delay the release of the next untethered jailbreak? It’s certainly a possibility, considering we were expecting a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 to be issued shortly following last week’s public release of the second minor iOS 9.3.x update.
iOS 9.3.3 Changes
Currently it’s unknown what, if any, outward facing changes iOS 9.3.3 offers over its predecessors (if any). However, like iOS 9.3.2, it’s possible that 9.3.3 is/was mostly intended to correct minor bug complications that have managed to persist through every iOS 9 update, including the new ones that have been introduced since iOS 9.3.x.
Jailbreaking and iOS 9.3.3
The latest beta could go one of two ways: it could either delay the release of a new jailbreak tool or its impact could be nominal.
For the latter to occur, Apple would have to release iOS 9.3.3 relatively soon, which is certainly a possibility. Assuming the company opts to bake the remedy for the iPad Pro 9.7″ iOS 9.3.2 update complications into iOS 9.3.3, the firmware could be released sooner than anticipated, which would be an incredible boon for the jailbreak community. If the former comes to fruition, we may once again encounter another jailbreak delay.
