Although the development of the iOS 10 is still in the early beta stage, it seems that its Jailbreak version has been achieved.
A new YouTube video has emerged demonstrating that Apple’s next mobile operating system has been jailbroken. However, this new exploit is unlikely to be made public.
Although the early beta version of iOS 10 has only been rolled out for the developer accounts, a jailbreaker going by the name iH8sn0w has successfully hacked an iPhone running on the iOS 10 beta. From the YouTube video, iH8sn0w has effectively jailbroken an iPhone 5 running Cydia on iOS 10 beta, and it appears that the jailbreak has not had any crashing problems yet!
On June 14, the hacker shared a viral post on Twitter saying: iOS 9 Jailbreak For iDevices.
Jailbreak for iOS is not a new phenomenon. Last year on October, the Pangu Jailbreakers team released the iOS jailbreak for iDevices. The jailbreak was initially released for Windows users and was also compatible with iOS 9.o through 9.0.2.
A few days later after the iOS 9 jailbreak was released, the Pangu team developed an update that provided bug fixes. Pangu 9 1.0.1 version targeted those that encountered problems hacking their devices on iOS 9.0 to 9.0.2.
The fixes that featured in the update included improved success rate with the removal of the Pangu application and removing the bug that initially led to the 0A error code and more.
The Pangu Team comprises senior security researchers addressing mobile security issues.
In May, another report stated that a developer, Lucas Todesco had succeeded in jailbreaking the iOS 9.3.2. However, just as is in the case of iOS 10 jailbreak, the iDevice owners should not rejoice yet as the developer behind the exploit maintained that he will not be rolling out the exploits.
Todesco is the same developer who had teased some of other exploits including iOS 9.3.3 beta jailbreak.
It appears that Apple has a long way to go far as their mobile operating systems count particularly regarding security. Apple enthusiasts had previously claimed that the Apple mobile operating system is already impossible to hack. The YouTube video just called this a bluff for now!
Again, expect less regarding the jailbreak since there is a higher chance that Apple will be rolling out a couple of iOS 10 beta version updates patching several exploits before the final version is coming out of the beta stage.
