Jailbreak update: finally here! iOS 9.3.3, 9.3.2, 9.3 to 9.2 jailbreak is out now. Pangu works on iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 5s, SE, iPad Air 2/1, iPad mini 4, 3, 2 and 6th-generation iPod touch model, iPgone 5, 5s, 4s, 32-bit iPad and iPod touch devices are not supported.
The jailbreak tool is only available in Chinese and is Windows-only. An English version should be arriving shortly, and that too only eligible 64-bit iPhones and iPads can be jailbroken on iOS 9.3.3, 9.3.2, etc. The jailbreak will also work with older iOS versions all the way back to iOS 9.2.
Note it then! This is a brand new jailbreak initiative, so it’ll likely be buggy. It might be best to wait until a few revisions to the tool are made, so proceed with caution.

Here’s how the jailbreak came into live: Last public jailbreak was released for iOS 9.1 devices by Pangu back in March this year. Although, Apple has released a number of firmware updates, including point updates for iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.3.
First beta of iOS 9.3.3 available back in May 2016. Shortly after it was released, Luca Tedesco successfully jailbroke it, and demonstrated his jailbreak on video, just like how he has done previously for some other iOS 9.2.x and iOS 9.3.x firmwares. Next time ever, the same guy also showed off JailbreakMe-style browser-based jailbreak on iOS 9.3.2. But unfortunately, Luca made it clear that his jailbreak is for his personal research purposes only and he would not release it to public.
In June 2016, Apple unveiled iOS 10 and followed it up with a beta release for developers and testers. He once again confirmed that his 0day exploit that worked on iOS 9.3.x has been patch by Apple in iOS 10, as a result, turned off has made his exploit public to let everyone with deep knowledge on jailbreaks to create a public jailbreak for iOS 9.3-9.3.3 devices.
Recently at MOSEC 2016 conference in Shanghai, the China-based Pangu Team demonstrated iOS 10 jailbreak. Hinted at a jailbreak coming soon for iOS 9.3.2/9.3.3 devices.
Apple has released final version of iOS 9.3.3 to public in mid July, after five beta releases. Less than two weeks after iOS 9.3.3 was released, Pangu dropped a new jailbreak that worked on the aforementioned iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 firmware. It’s a semi-untethered solution, meaning you will have to run an app on device (not computer) to get semi-tether your device back into jailbroken state after every reboot.
