iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak news: Developers might skip to iOS 10 instead?


Users who are looking for a jailbreak for the current and latest iOS 9.3 might no longer find what they have been looking for, as the jailbreak community is perceived to be skipping the work on the current numbered version of the Apple iOS entirely. They might be rekindling efforts for iOS 10 instead.

For many years now, a decent number of Apple users have been experiencing extended freedom in software management, albeit the perceived security risk, in performing jailbreak on their devices. However, in the past several months, there had been no widely usable jailbreak releasedwhich may have led some to think that jailbreaking is now dead.

However, it appears that it isn’t. While there have been minor releases in recent times, it was back in October 2015 when a significant jailbreak release was made available. An iOS 9.1 jailbreak was released back in March, but it came when users have already upgraded to a later version of the iOS and only a few benefitted from it.

With this, it is expected that jailbreak will be alive again perhaps when iOS 10 comes, as there is currently no clear word, aside from rumors and fake claims, regarding a release of an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak.

In other news, Apple users who happen to be very keen on their mobile security may use a new popular app.

System and Security Info, which was developed by Stefan Esser of international IT security company SektionEins, gives a security overview of the processes currently running on iOS including memory and PCU usage. It also detects recent system setting changes and if the device has been jailbroken or not. The application can also show, should the device is in jailbreak, the source of the activity and the date it was done.
