Pangu iOS 10.3 Jailbreak Could Release This Week – Here’s How to Prepare Your Device
It is expected that the Pangu iOS 10.3.1 / iOS 10.3 jailbreak will release this week. If it does, then here's how you can prepare your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch for it right away.
Get Ready for the Pangu 10.3 Jailbreak by Following a Few Steps Beforehand
The Pangu team demoed an iOS 10.3.1 / iOS 10.3 jailbreak a few days back on an iPhone 7. Along with that, it's expected that the team will release the solution to the public as early as this week. But of course, there's no hard evidence that the release will most definitely happen. Whether it does or not, here's what you should do to prepare your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch the right way.
Update to iOS 10.3.1 Right Now if You Haven't Already - Over the Air Method
The latest firmware which Apple is currently signing is iOS 10.3.1. Simply head over to Settings > General > Software Update and install the update over the air. Why you need to do this will be explained later, so keep reading. If you currently sitting on iOS 10.3, then it's totally up to you whether or not you want to update any further.
Take a Backup of Your Device Using iCloud or iTunes
Once your device has been fully updated, make sure you backup everything using iTunes or iCloud. It won't take more than a few minutes and ensures that your personal data is nice and secure. Furthermore, opt for the iTunes route if you want things to be more quicker.
Clean Install iOS 10.3.1 Using iTunes (For Maximum Effect)
The reason for the clean install is simple: jailbreaks do not play nicely with over the air updates in most cases. So a clean install ensures that everything is nice and smooth from the get-go. Also, this is completely optional, but I personally recommend doing it. Follow the links below for more details on how to do so. Just make sure you've backed up everything because a clean install will erase everything off your device.
