Apple users had felt that iOS 9.3.3 was going to be the last and final version of iOS update, but it looks like the company had other plans in mind. Apple has come out to release the iOS 9.3.4 without any warning, and this had left many Apple users baffled. With Apple releasing a new version of the iOS, Apple users are caught in a predicament as to whether to upgrade their devices or jailbreak it.
Forbes reported that iOS 9.3.4 is for iPhone 4S and later. Users who are using iPad 2 and above will be eligible for the upgrade. The users of iPad mini, the 5th generation of iPod touch and iPad Pro are going to get the notification for the update to iOS 9.3.4.
The users of these Apple devices are expected to be automatically prompted for the upgrade, but if that is not the case, then the users can always check for the upgrade of the operating system manually. They can go to settings and check for the available upgrades for their device under Software Update.
Apple and the jailbreakers like Pangu and TaiG have been playing a game of cat and mouse for a long time now. Ever since Apple came out with iOS 9, they have been trying hard to eliminate the attempts of the jailbreakers and releasing fresh updates to the operating system before the jailbreakers could release the final version of jailbreak for the latest iOS.
Pangu and TaiG have been struggling with the jailbreak of iOS 9, and right when they came out with the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3, Apple decided to pour water over their efforts by bringing out iOS 9.3.4.
Apple effectively gave a slap on the face of the jailbreakers who bring in third-party apps, by giving credit to Pangu for the source of the update. Apple has worked on the changes made by Pangu for iOS 9.3.3 in the jailbreak.
The latest update to iOS 9.3.4 does come with some glitches. Apple’s Support Communities have revealed that the latest iOS has an issue with the dictionary, and the battery widget also tends to freeze.
While users of Apple devices are skeptical about these issues, they have also seen that Apple has released a note with the iOS 9.3.4. It says that the new iOS is going to bring in critical security updates for iPad and iPhone, and this is something that the users don’t want to miss out on.
Apple hasn’t revealed the new changes that the operating system update is going to bring in. This has caused tech experts to claim that the new update is designed to fix the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak that Pangu had exploited. The new update to iOS 9.3.4 will wipe the jailbreak status of iOS 9.3.3, and it will be another few weeks until Pangu can come out with a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.4.
With no jailbreak option for iOS 9.3.2, the users of Apple who have that operating system in their device will automatically be updated to the latest operating system even if they do not want it.
Yibada reported that users who do not want to upgrade their devices to iOS 9.3.4 could download the Mikoto tweak on their Apple devices. The Mikoto tweak can be searched via Cydia and be installed on the device. This will prevent the operating system on their devices to get an automatic firmware update.
