It has been months lacking a jailbreak for the latest versions of iOS and we have been talking about speculations and rumors for a while already. Yet, there is any good news from anywhere on a release even hackers showed a private working jailbreak.
We have been keeping eyes on anything related to jailbreak, especially news releases from the sources in China such as 3K Assistant and 25PP, who are partners of the famous TaiG and Pangu jailbreak teams respectively. After reading through a few articles, it seems that the 25PP editors might have hinted something in the lines.
Just a little disclaimer here, we cannot assure you such information is really a hint or purely our speculation and interpretation as no one has ever come out and confirmed what they meant. But still, we would like to share with you how we see about it.
On Tuesday, 25PP reported on the iOS 9.2 battery status glitch on their site. (The screenshot on the left below). But meanwhile, at the end of the article, they highlighted in red that “iOS 9.2 continues to be glitched, no wonder why the jailbreak teams dare not release the iOS 9.2 jailbreak”.
This statement highlighted invited speculations that either: iOS 9.2 “had” already been jailbroken by any of the Chinese teams but they refrained from releasing it due to major glitches on iOS 9.2; or: it is just another excuse to delay the release of the jailbreak as no one has succeeded, or is still being worked on.
Two days later, another editor reported on the iOS 9.2.1 vs 9.2 speed test on iPhones done by EverythingApplePro. But again, in the last paragraph (as highlighted in the screenshot on the right), the writer commented from a jailbreak perspective that:
“The security patches in iOS 9.2.1 may have fixed some jailbreak exploits. So if you are still interested in jailbreaking, it is no harm to stay with iOS 9.2 to wait and see. Because after all, iOS 9.2.1 does not add any new functionality comparing with iOS 9.2.”
Again, we could not tell whether or not this serves as a hint to all users that it is still good to stay at where they are, either on iOS 9.2 or earlier. But honestly speaking, there is no obligation from any of the editors to relate these news with jailbreaking. So we agree what Gordon Kelly from Forbes reminds in his latest article , you will need to sit tight for now.
So what’s your take on the above? Do you see there are hints pointing towards a likely iOS 9.2 jailbreak instead of 9.2.1 or 9.3 and a kind reminder to jailbreak users to stay with iOS 9.2? Or do you see it’s a pure wild guess to a future or upcoming jailbreak? Let us know in the comments.
