If one hackers counsel is anything to go by, iOS 10.2 is more laborious to jailbreak, staying on iOS 10.1.1 is recommended. Here’s what you need to know.
Those who’re waiting for one of the more demanded development teams to release an iOS 10 jailbreak to the public, it looks like though that the wait could be prolonged for just a little bit longer, at least on later versions of Apple’s iOS platform. Prominent security researcher and developer Luca Todesco has submitted a series of tweaks pertaining the latest beta build of iOS 10.2, claiming that Apple has patched multiple vulnerabilities which will ultimately make it more difficult to liberate iOS 10.2 and above.
Although Todesco from an iOS security perspective is actually be able to comment on changes in Apple’s underlying architecture, as well as pass comments on improvements made to protect the iOS ecosystem from being jailbroken.
The developer one of those individuals involved in finding vulnerabilities in iOS and exploiting them and was also present at Apple’s Cupertino campus to kick off the companies Bug Bounty Program that extremely writes cheques to security specialists for finding vulnerabilities in Apple’s products. These latest tweets confirm the security changes made with the latest iOS 10.2 beta.
In a tweet, Todesco started off by confirming that iOS 10.2 “kills many bugs,” and that “staying on iOS 10.1.1 is a wise choice.” However, that particular tweet doesn’t shows any specific detail about the changes made in iOS 10.2, but does provide jailbreak fans with a word of advise to remain firmly on iOS 10.1.1 if they hope to experience an iOS 10 jailbreak sooner rather than later.
The tweets somewhat clarifies suggesting that Apple’s latest iOS betas are understandably more secure than the latest stable release, which happens to be iOS 10.1.1, indicating that those who actually care about security than liberation and jailbreaks should take the opportunity to move across to the latest build for full security.
The fact at this stage in the iOS 10 landscape, jailbreak teams have been relatively quiet recently, it’s very hard to discover where we are at with a public iOS 10 jailbreak. Apple is expected to release iOS 10.2 final version to the public during next week, which, as we now know, looks to make jailbreaking a device a lot harder for those involved in that particular space. With that said, it’s very difficult to believe there would a jailbreak release right now.
