It's been a little over a week since Apple released the fourth beta for the impending iOS 9.3.2, and jailbreak fans are already wondering when a jailbreak tool for the updated OS will be released.
Speculations are rife that the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 will be released prior to Apple's annual five-day long Worldwide Developer's Conference or WWDC, which is slated to begin on June 13.
The last jailbreak tool was for iOS 9.1, which was released by the Pangu team in March this year. However, post its release, Apple has made a lot of headway and patched the vulnerabilities in iOS 9.3.1, making the job tougher for hackers.
While popular jailbreakers Pangu and TaiG may be keeping mum about the new jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3.2's exact release date, the former has revealed that the tool will be released once Apple outs the public version of iOS 9.3.2.
"Pangu and Taig teams have confirmed possibility of iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak. Pangu tool (Pangu version 2.2 beta) has been released to jailbreak iOS 9.3.2 version. Unfortunately, this jailbreak is not publicly available at this time. This tool will release to jailbreak community when Apple out iOS 9.3.2 version public," notes Pangu on its page.
The TaiG team has also confirmed that it is working on a jailbreaking solution for iOS 9.3.2.
"TaiG9 team is already started working on iOS 9.3.2 Jailbreak solution while it is in developer beta. And TaiG9 community testing was opened for both iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3," announced the developer on its page.
With both the notable developers working on creating a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3.2, things look positive for jailbreak aficionados.
However, some industry experts believe that the hacking team will not release a jailbreak solution for iOS 9.3.2, as Apple has possibly fixed all the exploits hackers use for modification.
Moreover, jailbreaking iOS 9.3.2 is pretty difficult, and therefore, hackers may shift their focus on iOS 10 instead. Why? Because when the betas for the impending iOS 10 is pushed out by Apple, it could potentially have several bugs, which can be exploited effectively by the hackers to facilitate a jailbreak.
"Although it's still possible that we could see a tool for iOS 9.3.x, it's more likely that hackers are holding off for an iOS 10 jailbreak. That is, of course, unless iOS 10 fixes an exploit that they use," notes 9to5Mac.
Some specialists also opine that even if the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak tool is released prior to the WWDC, it could be coming a little late in the day, as Apple is allegedly set to introduce a HomeKit app in iOS 10. The HomeKit app will basically enable a developer to create software, which is capable of communicating with home products.
With the WWDC a month away, we will soon know if the hackers have successfully managed to formulate a jailbreak solution for iOS 9.3.2 and if it is indeed pushed out prior to the event.
