iOS 10.2 has, at last, been released after a beta testing program ironed out the bugs and glitches. This is the latest in a flurry of updates from the Cupertino Company as they try to stop iOS 10.2 download [ext link] from being as buggy and prone to errors as previous versions of the firmware have been. And, this could also be the reason for the distinct lack of a jailbreak for iOS 10.

When Can we Jailbreak iOS 10.2 ?
Quite apart from the fact that this is a relatively new firmware release and neither Pangu, Taig nor PP will have had time to look at it properly yet, there are several other hurdles that the jailbreak teams need to get over before they can come up with a truly workable solution for jailbreaks to use. Right now, apart from the updates that Apple keeps on releasing, the teams are having to battle against developers who insist on releasing proof of jailbreaks with no intention of releasing the tool for people to use. All this does is alert Apple to the fact that there are open vulnerabilities and gives them the chance to patch them before they can be exploited for a major jailbreak tool.

Taig, Pangu and PP have not followed these developers with their own tools for a simple reason; the likes of Luca Todesco, a well-known Italian developer, will only produce a jailbreak for one or two devices whereas these teams are working for a much wider audience and much wider range of devices. This takes time to achieve and this is a contributory factor to why we won’t be seeing an iOS 10.2 jailbreak [ext link] in the next few days.
Can Apple Really Be Winning the War ?
They may have the upper hand at this stage but, if there is one thing we know about the jailbreak teams, it is that they are determined to produce a jailbreak for us at some stage. It could be that we take a step back to previous years and have to wait until the holiday season starts but we will see a jailbreak at some stage of the game. Right now, the teams are battling against two major factors – Rootless, the new technology from Apple that is designed to put a spanner in the jailbreak works, and their new Bug Bounty program which is offering rewards for reported vulnerabilities of up to $200,000.
All we can suggest at the moment is that we remain patient and keep our fingers crossed that we hear from the teams soon with regards to an iOS 10.2 jailbreak. In the meantime, you can subscribe t our fee email newsletter and follow us on Facebook for more up to date news.Top Trending Articles :
