The i OS jailbreaking scene has for long been a cat and mouse game between Apple and eagle-eyed jailbreak developers, who are often looking for backdoor entries or security loopholes at the core of i OS.
With every new i OS update, the current working jailbreak becomes obsolete as Apple patches up all known exploits in its bid to enhance security and prevent unauthorised access to the core system of i OS.
This goes on to show how vigilant jailbreak developers are, and exploits are actively being discovered to liberate devices.
Furthermore, it’s highly likely Apple will patch everything up in the next big release of i OS.
Most likely i OS 10.2, which happens to be in beta currently.
An i OS 10.x jailbreak exists but no one can have it yet, and that’s a given fact.
It was a month back we came across a video showing off an i OS 10 jailbreak running on i Phone 7.
The i OS 8 update is available as a free upgrade for the following i OS devices: It is very important to take a backup of your i Phone, i Pad and i Pod Touch before updating it with the latest i OS software update.
(Note that if you choose to encrypt your backup using i Tunes, along with normal data, secure information like passwords etc.
Not to mention, Apple is known to stop signing the previous firmware at short notice, following a new firmware release.
For instance, you will notice speed improvements with animation loading and boot-up times on older devices such as i Phone 4s and i Pad 2 after updating them to i OS 8.1.1.
Here’s an i OS 10.1 and i OS 10.1.1 jailbreak for i Phone 7 shown off on video.
