Apple gadget users who want to have the flexibility of modifying and customizing their devices are already looking forward to the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. There are rumors that a jailbreak is currently in the works and may come in 2016.
Pangu is one of the most known groups to create jailbreaks for Apple devices. When Apple released iOS 9, the group released a jailbreak for users. However, their efforts were almost unused as Apple immediately released iOS 9.1 to counter the said jailbreak.
There are rumors that Pangu is working on a jailbreak for iOS 9.1, but it is still incomplete. Users may already download it, but there are risks attached to a partial jailbreak as it will not have the complete contents. Meanwhile, there are also rumors that Pangu is working on an iOS 9.2 jailbreak instead in order for them not to repeat the same scenario that happened with iOS 9.
However, according to Gotta Be Mobile, it is possible for users not to get a jailbreak a little longer, even beyond 2016, because of Apple’s release cycle. It pointed out that if there is already a jailbreak for iOS 9.2, it should already be released now because once Apple releases a beta for iOS 9.2.1, what happened to iOS 9 may happen again.
Meanwhile, another group of hackers, called 3K, reportedly has a working version of iOS 9.2 jailbreak that is not yet released to the public, said Popular Science. 3K is currently working on an untethered version and asks the public to be patient.
At the moment, they did not specify a date yet, but if they already have a working version internally, then the jailbreak for iOS 9.2 should already be made public by early 2016.
As the demand for the jailbreak is high, other groups may also be working to unlock and share the jailbreak to the public.
