Ahead of Apple’s October media event this Thursday, the company released iOS 10.1 to the general public. While the firmware is available for all devices, and unifies the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with all other iOS 10-based iDevices (considering 10.0.3 was exclusive to said iPhones), the iPhone 7 Plus benefits the most from today’s release. Does it impact jailbreaking though? Continue reading beyond the break for full information on the brand new iOS 10.1 update.
Today, in a surprise release, Apple issued iOS 10.0.3 to the general public. However, instead of pushing out the latest firmware for all devices, iOS 10.0.3 is exclusive to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Does it impact jailbreaking though? Continue reading past the break for additional information and a brief explanation of the latest release.
Today, as announced during last week’s iPhone 7 media event, Apple released iOS 10 to the general public in the form of 10.0.1! But how does the latest release affect jailbreaking – is it a major setback for Pangu or can we expect the first iOS 10 jailbreak soon? Let’s find out!
Following Apple’s WWDC 2016 event almost three months ago, Apple seeded the GM (gold master) intention of iOS 10 to registered developers, and the public today (September 9, 2016).

I’m glad you asked; the Pangu jailbreak team held MOSEC 2016 on the 1st and the group gave an important presentation at the event. Word on the street is that they may very well release an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak! But wait there’s more, an iOS 10 jailbreak was also demoed!
Today I thought I’d tackle what’s easily the most popular question I receive: “Should I update if I want to jailbreak?” It doesn’t matter which firmware an individual is on, be it iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, iOS 9.3.1 or iOS 9.3.2, the following information (specifically the above video) will apply regardless.

Yesterday, following Monday’s unveiling of iOS 10, hacker iH8sn0w has already achieved a jailbreak on the pre-release beta firmware!
