If you own an Apple device, chances are it’s already running on the newest version of iOS, the 10.3.2, or will receive an update for it shortly. After iOS 10.3.1 was a meek, bleak and overall boring update that Apple gave us, the iOS 10.3.2 doesn’t seem much different at first glance. The update doesn’t bring anything astoundingly different to the table, but it’s still a very exciting update as far as device security is concerned.
With the new iOS version 10.3.2, Apple managed to take care of over 25 security threats, bugs and oddities across their three signature devices, the iPhone, the iPad and the iPod. So, following this update, your phone might not look or feel a whole lot different, but it will be safer. And that’s always good news.
Perhaps the most exciting thing surrounding the launch of iOS 10.3.2 is that renowned jailbreak hacker group Pangu have promised to bring out a jailbreak system that will be compatible with the newest version of the OS. Until now, no jailbreak groups were even going near iOS 10 and all its variants, because Apple implemented a nifty little feature in the OS coding that made jailbreaking impossible.
The situation was so grim, that even Luca Todesco, one of the world’s top notch jailbreakers, had to call it quits. However, Pangu has promised to bring out a new jailbreak soon after iOS 10.3.2 hits phones. However, the team hasn’t put out anything yet. And nobody’s sure they ever will. While they might have promised to bring out a new jailbreak after the release, who knows, maybe they discovered they can’t do it after all.
We’ll give them a week and see if they put out anything. If by Sunday no new jailbreak is out, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s not coming.
