iOS 9.3, in its current state at beta 5, can be jailbroken, confirms a developer, despite Apple patching a bunch of vulnerabilities with the fifth pre-release build of its mobile software.

iOS 9.3 Beta 5 Jailbreak Works, But Future Regarding Its Release Is Unknown

It seems as though jailbreaking an iOS device has come to a complete halt if the updates from the past few weeks are anything to go by. But we hear occasional murmurs from the social space regarding the progress being mage. For instance, a Pangu Team member recommended that one should update their device to iOS 9.2.1 download. Whereas one hacker / developer who goes by the name Luca Todescoaka has showed off an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak in the past, with the solution also working on a pre-release build of iOS 9.3 beta.

Fast forward to this week and it came to public knowledge that Apple has released the fifth beta of iOS 9.3, and with the release of the new software, the company made an extra effort to thwart holes in the system that could be potentially exploited to jailbreak iOS 9.3. It appeared as though the iOS 9.3 jailbreak was dead for good.

But, developer Luca Todesco, the same one who was working on the jailbreak has emerged on Twitter and has confirmed that the iOS 9.3 jailbreak is still alive and well.

While that is definitely good news, it should be made clear at this point that Luca Todesco announced quite a while back that he would not release the jailbreak publicly. But, there’s a chance that if he doesn’t release the iOS 9.3 jailbreak, then it’s likely that TaiG and Pangu teams will start working on it immediately and dig out what makes the jailbreak possible in the first place, subsequently releasing it to the public.

But if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath for the iOS 9.3 jailbreak just yet. Its future is absolutely brisk at this point in time, and there’s a high chance that it will turn into just smoke on the water. We could be wrong though and there have been instances in the past where a jailbreak has been released out of nowhere, surprising everyone in the tech space.

We will keep our readers posted if there are further updates. Sit tight till then!
