iPhone 7 Jailbreak on iOS 10 Has Been Achieved
iPhone 7 jailbreak has been achieved in a short period of time. The device was jailbroken on iOS 10 / 10.0.1, which happens to be the first ever public release.
iPhone 7 Jailbreak Has Been Achieved at Lightning pace, but Don’t Expect a Release
Hacker and developer Luca Tedesco has managed to pull off an iPhone 7 jailbreak on the first ever public release of iOS 10, which happens to be iOS 10.0.1. The image shared by the developer on Twitter shows off a black iPhone 7 running Cydia (version 1.1.25). Further proof lies right next to the Cydia version number which clearly shows the device it is running on is ‘iPhone 9,3’ which happens to be the iPhone 7, of course.

While this confirms the fact that iOS 10 as well as iPhone 7 can be jailbroken, there are a few things that should be kept in mind. First and foremost, Luca will never ever release the vulnerabilities in the public domain that makes the jailbreak happen in the first place. Secondly, even if a jailbreak is achieved by the likes of Pangu or anyone else and released into the public domain, Apple will patch things up at a lightning pace. The company has done so with the release of iOS 9.3.3 and up.
It’s actually quite fascinating how quickly developers work in the background to achieve something like this. Despite Apple’s strict security measures to keep things as watertight as possible, there is always going to be someone out there with a magic stick to pull off something like this. Simply brilliant if you’re asking us.
Given the amount of features Apple has packed into iOS 10, we doubt majority of the people out there would want to jailbreak. But, of course, there are certain tweaks and apps out there that make the iOS experience complete for a certain subset of users. Activator, for example, is one of them.
We will not ask our readers to hold their breaths for an iOS 10 jailbreak just yet. Given how things are, you’re better off sitting on a clean installation of iOS 10 and use it as you normally would. If there’s a major development however, only then we will poke everyone on the rib to take some serious action.
Till then, you have the above screenshot to look at, nothing else.
