This morning, following the break Apple took for Memorial Day, the company released iOS 9.3.3 beta 2 to registered developers. Can we expect a new untethered jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 or will the jailbreak once again be delayed? Thankfully we expect iOS 9.3.3 to be one of the last iOS 9.3.x updates, and beta 2 to be the last iOS update in general before we receive iOS 10 beta 1, making it the opportune moment to issue a new jailbreak!
iOS 9.3.3 beta 2 Changes
As with its predecessor, it’s currently unknown what noticeable changes iOS 9.3.3 offers over previous iOS 9.3.x releases (if any) – the firmware is currently intended to remedy bugs introduced by Apple in the massive iOS 9.3 update. As mentioned above, Apple will be get to phase out development support for iOS 9 in an attempt to focus efforts on iOS 10, so hopefully 9.3.3 will be one of the last 9.3.x updates.
Jailbreaking and iOS 9.3.3
Considering we’re two weeks following the first beta of iOS 9.3.3’s release, the firmware has clearly delayed the release of any new (planned) utility on TaiG and/or Pangu’s part.
Like Apple, jailbreak developers want to ensure that their work is as stable as possible. What’s more, considering the David vs Goliath nature of jailbreaking (the latter of course being Apple), jailbreakers need to ensure that what they spent hundreds of hours creating lasts for as long as possible without being squashed by a new iOS update days later.
In light of that fact, we can most likely compare today’s situation to that of iOS 8.3 and 8.4’s last year – i.e. 9.3.x will be the final installment to iOS 9 before iOS 10, like 8.4.x was the final installment to iOS 8 before iOS 9, making it the perfect time to strike.
