iOS 9.1, 9.2 Beta Jailbreak Exists, But No One Can Have It
Apple patched the iOS 9 - 9.0.2 Pangu 9 jailbreak with the release of iOS 9.1 download, and so far it's unclear whether or not we would see another public tool to crack Apple's latest firmware for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. But, today we have learned that an iOS 9.1, 9.2 jailbreak exists, but users shouldn't expect to see it, or use it, ever.
Apple patched a bunch of exploits when it pushed out iOS 9.1 to the end users a while back, but today it has come to our knowledge that a browser based jailbreak for iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 - still in beta - exists. This means that you can liberate your device without ever having to plug it into a computer and the magic happens over the air. If you can recall the days of JailbreakMe, then you're not too far off from what we're trying to imply here.
The revelation of the jailbreak was made on Twitter by Zerodium, and the tweet on the matter is as follows:

Now, the thing is, Zerodium has a business of buying out exploits, and in turn it does not turn it into a public release. This in turn means that we will never see a browser-based jailbreak in the near future, so don't keep your fingers crossed for a while. But, there is a chance that this discovery will prompt other teams, such as Pangu and TaiG to start working on their own and release tools in the near future that can jailbreak iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2.
And that of course, is a wild guess.
Currently, Apple is only signing iOS 9.1 and there's no way to downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 and jailbreak. Hence, we recommend that if you were wanting to jailbreak your device, then you still have a little window of opportunity to pull off the feat, provided that you're sitting on iOS 9.0.2 and haven't upgraded to iOS 9.1 by accident.

We really do wish that someone works their magic and release an iOS 9.1 - 9.2 jailbreak. After all, many users out in the wild prefer to use their devices outside the boundaries of Cupertino's walled garden, and it would be a huge treat for those who are stuck on the latest iOS 9.1 firmware without a jailbreak.
Do you think an iOS 9.1 - 9.2 jailbreak will bear fruit in the near future? Be sure to drop your thoughts in the comments section below.
