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!
Today while we await the release of a new jailbreak utility, which will hopefully come relatively soon, I’ve opted to refresh my iPhone unlock guide! While the terms “jailbreak” and “unlock” are often used freely amongst individuals to mean essentially the same thing, the two are fundamentally different. In essence, jailbreaking refers to the process in which a user gains root access and (in most cases) installs Cydia via a public utility, whereas unlocking empowers iPhones that previously would only function on one carrier to work on virtually any!
Following the recent iOS 9.3.2 issue that caused select iPad Pro 9.7″ models to become bricked ensuing a dreaded error 56 message when attempting to upgrade to said firmware inside iTunes, Apple finally issued an updated build of iOS 9.3.2 to remedy the issue yesterday.
Earlier today, hacker Luca Todesco published a video highlighting a very powerful WebKit exploit to achieve a complete jailbreak on iOS 9.3.2. While he won’t release the utility to the masses, the video shows what’s possible and should reignite hope amongst jailbreakers as someone else could employ the same method to create a new jailbreak (TaiG and Pangu, we’re looking to you – that rhyme was a happy coincidence)!
Today I have additional details to share with you pertaining to my iPad Pro giveaway and how to earn free paid apps from the App Store on iOS 9.3.2 and iOS 9.3.3. First up, the iPad Pro Giveaway!
Yesterday, following Apple’s beta 1 release of iOS 9.3.3, an individual named Luca Todesco (a known hacker who’s built a reputation as a troll) tweeted proof that he had successfully jailbroken said beta of 9.3.3 mere hours following its availability!
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.
