Apple iOS Jailbreaking is the method of removing the various hardware and software restrictions imposed by Apple on its iOS. This procedure unlocks the full potential of the device and it lets users download and install third-party apps from other sources than the Apple App Store. Two prominent names in the field of iOS jailbreaking are Pangu and TaiG.
These two teams have previously brought various jailbreaking tools for earlier versions of the Apple iOS. Fans of jailbroken iOS are eagerly waiting for these two teams to release the jailbreaking tools for the latest versions of iOS- Apple iOS 9.1 and Apple iOS 9.2.
According to a renowned tech site, TaiG might be on the verge of releasing the iOS 9.2 jailbreak which is definitely good news for users of Apple devices. The site claims that the hacking team is putting in a lot of effort to develop andrelease the jailbreak as soon as possible and according to latest reports, the team has been able to make considerable amount of progress in their quest.
Though a full-fledged working version of the jailbreak is yet to be developed by TaiG, it was reported that the developmental process of an unearthed version of the jailbreak has nearly been completed by the team. Users are advised to keep their patience for a stable version of the jailbreak to make its appearance.
No specific details as to when the proper functioning jailbreak might be released have yet been revealed by TaiG yet but rumors are suggesting an early 2016 release for the said jailbreak.
Apple is constantly trying to improve the security measures of its iOS to block out the effects of jailbreak on it. The last jailbreak which was released for the Apple iOS 9.0 fell flat on its face when Apple rolled out an update- the Apple iOS 9.1 after just a few days from the release of the jailbreak. The jailbreak which was meant for the iOS 9.0 had no effect on the iOS 9.1 which had better security measures that did not let the jailbreak to work on it.
Users who had upgraded their phones to the iOS 9.1 got stuck with a regular version of the OS as Apple had stopped the downgrading facility, which did not let them go back to the Apple iOS 9.0. Thus they had no way out other than waiting for an iOS 9.1 jailbreak to make an appearance.
It was Pangu who had released the iOS 9.0 jailbreak and the team is currently in the news claiming that they have already created a working jailbreak for the iOS 9.1 but it has not reached a stage of completion. The jailbreak comprises of incomplete components and thus it is risky for users to download and use it on their devices as it might possess the potential to harm their devices.
The delay in the release of the iOS 9.2 jailbreak by Pangu could be accounted to the fact that they are waiting for Apple to release the iOS 9.2.1 beta. They do not want to repeat the mistake that they did with the iOS 9.0 jailbreak.
If they release the iOS 9.2 jailbreak and Apple rolls out the iOS 9.2.1 beta in quick succession, all their efforts would go in vain once again. It is being speculated that a working jailbreak for the Apple iOS 9.2 won’t make an appearance before 2016.
Users who want to get a taste of the semi-jailbreak iOS 9.1 would have to visit the official website of Pangu by using Safari browser. The website will first verify the version of the user’s iOS. After the iOS version is successfully verified, the process will continue till it is completed and the jailbreak tool is installed on the device.
Users who jailbreak their devices can make use of the vShare Semi Jailbreak app manager to download and install the official jailbreak app store called Cydia. Cydia will grant users access to numerous third party apps which cannot be found on Apple’s own app store.
