Jailbreaking is one of those things that you have to be in the know to even attempt on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. There was a breakthrough with iOS 9.3.3, but as Apple has recently put out iOS 9.3.4, that makes that jailbreaking outdated. Fortunately, there might be a jailbreak available for iOS 9.3.4, and this gives some good hope for when the latest double-digit iOS 10 gets its release date.
According to 9 to 5 Mac, Apple stopped signing iOS 9.3.3 as of Wednesday this week, which effectively ending user's ability to either upgrade or downgrade to that version of iOS. Not only that, but Apple also stopped signing iOS 9.3.2.
So, why is there so much hype over this signing closure? This is because there was the jailbreak was released for iOS 9.3.3. Yes, you know that Apple really hates those jailbreaking crowd. Which is why Apple released iOS 9.3.4 at the beginning of August to prevent the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
If you are really not in the jailbreaking know, here's what it is: a way to negate Apple's predetermined settings of the iPhone or iPad in order to gain more control over the iDevice. It is also a way for Apple users to enjoy access to their favorite brand of smartphones or tablet, particularly to the iOS files system and manager for downloading applications that are not available on the App Store.
A recent report from WCCF Tech has revealed that iOS 9.3.4 has been jailbroken. There is a video of the jailbreak being demoed on an iPhone. This is good news, but the bad news is that the person who did this won't be releasing the solution to the general public. This is actually very common when it comes to jailbreaking. However, it is sold proof that iOS 9.3.4 can be jailbroken.
Of course, jailbreaking iOS 9.3.4 will be made moot with the release of iOS 10, and there are reports that an iOS 10 beta is now on its seventh version of its beta, according to Gotta Be Mobile. You should be able to get it if you have an iPhone 5 or higher, iPad 4, iPad Air or higher, iPad mini 2 or higher, as well as the iPad Touch Sixth Generation.
So, when will the iOS 10 release date happen? Chances are, the date will be unveiled that the iPhone 7 event that is happening on September 7th. Who knows, it could be available after Apple's newest smartphone is announced, not to mention the Apple Watch 2. After that, it is a matter of waiting around for the jailbreak to appear, which could be sooner or later.
