In Oct 2015, just one month after Apple released iOS 9 and a couple of days after iOS 9.1 came out, Pangu released the first untethered iOS 9 jailbreak for the new firmware. Unfortunately it wasn’t really suitable for all to download as some users didn’t want the Pangu app icon sticking to their phones after jailbreaking . Saurik did come to the rescue and produced an updated version of Cydia for people to install separately from the jailbreak while he worked with Pangu to get it incorporated into their utility.
