An app has surfaced on the official iOS App Store itself that will jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on iOS 9.3.3. Wait, what? App Store?!

Apple Accidentally Approved An App That Can Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 On iPhone, iPad – Download It Now Before It’s Pulled

The Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak bit the dust with the release of iOS 9.3.4, and things went further down the drain with iOS 9.3.5, which patched a couple of grave security loopholes. In other words: Apple is taking some dire steps on the security front to make sure things are nice and tight. But, strangely enough, Apple messed up big time just recently by approving an app on the App Store that can allegedly jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 on an iPhone or iPad.

According to users over at Reddit, the app uses the same exploit that were utilized by the Pangu team to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3. But it raises a lot of questions regarding how the app got to the App Store in the first place. But nonetheless, if you’re still on iOS 9.3.3 and were hoping to jailbreak, there’s no simpler way to do it than by simply downloading an app from the App Store itself. Convenience personified if you’re asking us.

As soon as Apple gets wind of this app, it will likely be taken down. So, if you want to take advantage of the prowess of this app, then you can download it by tapping on this link. The app currently sits under the guise of ‘PG Client,’ which is quite clever if you’re asking us. Why? Because the icon of the app is mischievously similar to ‘PP Jailbreak.’

These are the screenshots that come accompanied with the app, which of course, are just a coverup for the real thing.

Wrap Up

Even if you’re not planning to use this app immediately, you can tap on the ‘GET’ button and cancel the download right after to place the app in your Purchases under the App store. But of course, Apple is going to go full-on thermonuclear with such a massive slip-up, making sure the traces of this app cease to exist as soon as possible. So, whatever you want to do with this app, you should do it immediately. Such a ‘chance’ won’t pop up over and over again.

Even if you do end up using this app, be sure to let us know about it in the comments section below. We love to hear back from our readers!
