Since iOS 10 was released in September 2016, there have been few jailbreaks to use. Some of this is down to the new security features that Apple introduced in a bid to stamp out jailbreaking for good and some of it is down to the number of updates they have released for iOS 10. The latest update brings us to iOS 10.3.3 download [ext link], although there is a chance that this could be the last update for this iOS version, as Apple will be concentrating their efforts on iOS 11 from June 2017.

So far, the only developer to release a jailbreak for iOS 10 is Luca Todesco. Yalu Jailbreak was released for iOS 10 but, apart from being a semi-untethered jailbreak, it would only work on the 64-bit devices. A subsequent update for iOS 10.2 took away support for the iPhone 7, further cutting down the number of people that could use it and now Todesco has told us that Yalu Jailbreak will not be updated any further for iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak as he is “Retiring” for public iOS security work.
Pangu iOS 10.3.3 Jailbreak Update :
That leaves us with teams like Pangu to come up with a new jailbreak. Pangu have been quiet since iOS 10 was released although they did have a small part to play in Yalu. However, we know from past experience that, just because a jailbreak developer doesn’t announce every move they make doesn’t mean they are not working on a jailbreak. On the whole, they prefer to keep quiet until they are ready to release, not giving Apple any idea that they have the exploits needed to jailbreak.

Pangu are one of our most respected jailbreak teams. They may have gotten off to a dodgy start with their relationship to a Chinese pirate app store but have since gone on to prove themselves worthy. Over the last few years, they have come up with a large number of safe and reliable jailbreaks and we really don’t have any reason to doubt that they can do it again.
It may be that they are waiting for iOS 11 to be announced; once that happens, there are unlikely to be any more updates to iOS 10 for some time, giving us a much longer window of time in which to enjoy any jailbreak that may be released. For now, all we can do is watch and wait and, if you are already running a jailbreak on your device, don’t update to iOS 10.3.3.
