According to sources, Apple has reportedly patched a software vulnerability that made it possible to jailbreak iOS 9.3. The fix comes in its fifth beta release which was rolled out on Tuesday, and it could make hacking iOS 9.3 more difficult.
“the iOS 9.3 Jailbreak has unfortunately been secured by Apple in the latest Beta 5,” reports ModMyi. “It is unknown as to how Apple has found the hole to patch it’s [sic] iOS up and whether sources are correct at this point in time.
iOS 9.3 Jailbreak has supposedly been in the works by the team at Pangu since the beta stages became available for iOS. Apple has been taking measures in making its devices and products virtually impenetrable by outside entities. This could certainly endanger the jaibreaking business as fans know it.
Back in January, hacker Luca Todesco teased us with a video that showed Cydia and various other jailbreak tweaks running on iOS 9.3 beta 1. It’s unclear if Todesco used the same vulnerability that Pangu has been working with, but he said at the time that he has no intention of making his jailbreak public.
A couple of months back, there were reports that Pangu was close to putting out the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak. Unfortunately, the team encountered a setback that put them all the way back to square one. TaiG has been particularly mum about their project as well. This doesn’t give us much hope for an iOS 9.3 solution, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
I guess we will just wait and see how everything pans out, what are your thoughts on this?
