The latter half of iOS 9 was a bit dry in terms of jailbreaks and, although we did finally get one for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 in the form of PPHelper, the jailbreak community had to go through several months without. Even that jailbreak was killed off pretty quickly and most users pinned their hopes firmly on iOS 10 for the next one. iOS 10 is now here and has been downloaded onto millions of devices in the space of just a few days. It has also already been objected to an update, iOS 10.0.2, just a minor bug fix update. While large numbers of people have updated already, there is a percentage of iOS user that are hanging back. Part of this is to wait and see if there are any problems with the new firmware and partly because they want to see if a new jailbreak is imminent.

While we thought that we might see an iOS 10 jailbreak , that is actually looking less likely at the moment. The simple reason for it is, not because it can’t be jailbroken but because Apple has just seeded the first beta of iOS 10.1 download [ext link] to developers. The update is aimed mainly at users of the brand new iPhone 7 Plus as it focuses on the dual camera system that makes its debut on the new hardware and that means many users are going to want to update to it, regardless of whether they have a jailbreak installed or not.
iOS 10.1 Jailbreak Release Date :
We know that iOS 10 can be jailbroken because Luca Todesco, famed Italian hacker, has uploaded proof of an iOS 10 and iOS 10.0.2 jailbreak [ext link] to his Twitter account but, as usual, he will not be releasing it to the public. We expect to see iOS 10.1 released publicly in October sometime and that means it is highly likely that the jailbreak teams are going to hold back on any exploits they have to see if they can produce a jailbreak for iOS 10.1.
