The jailbreak community has been silent for quite a long time now, with no major jailbreak releases recently. Of course, we are not counting the iOS 9.1 jailbreak that was released recently. That’s because most of the users weren’t able to use it as it came too late and a lot of people had already updated to iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1. All the attention is now directed towards the iOS 9.3 or iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak, and the obvious team at the centre of expectations is Pangu. Update: Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.3 firmware.

iOS 9.3.1 Released, But iOS 9.3 Jailbreak Still Possible
Almost everyone will agree that no one was expecting the Pangu iOS 9.1 jailbreak to be released after two iOS updates – iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1. However, the jailbreak for iOS 9.1 was released at such a time when a lot of users were already on iOS 9.2 or above, with very little users left to try out the jailbreak. Thus, it can be said that the iOS 9.1 jailbreak was more or less useless.

iOS 9.3.1 has been released, but let’s go back a few weeks and remember that the popular Italian hacker Luca Todesco had said that iOS 9.3 beta 5 is jailbreakable. This suggests that the public release of iOS 9.3 is jailbreakable too, and we might see an iOS 9.3 jailbreak by Pangu soon.
Has iOS 9.3.1 Patched the iOS 9.3 Jailbreak Exploits ?
Isn’t it suspicious that Apple had to release iOS 9.3.1, a minor update, just a few days after releasing iOS 9.1. One explanation for this is that Apple found some bugs in the firmware and released the new update to fix those bugs. But it is also possible that Apple worked out the flaws, the security vulnerabilities in iOS 9.3.1 that could help hackers create a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.1. If that’s to be taken as true, Apple patched the iOS 9.3 jailbreak exploits in iOS 9.3.1, and Pangu would have to start afresh on the iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak.
Should You Remain on iOS 9.3 ?
If you are not a jailbreak user, no, you have no reason to stay on iOS 9.3. Just update to iOS 9.3.1 and you’ll get a more stable firmware with less bugs. But if you want to jailbreak your iOS device, you’d better stay on iOS 9.3 as a jailbreak for it might be released by Pangu soon. It’s also possible that a Pangu 9.3.1 jailbreak might come out in a few weeks, so just stick to iOS 9.3 and wait patiently.
