At the rate that Apple has been releasing iOS 10 updates, it seems pertinent that hackers may be fighting a lost cause. Though not intended to patch up the cracked mobile operating systems, the fact remains that Pangu, TaiG, and other hackers have fallen considerably behind.


The latest operating system issued by Apple is iOS 10, something meant to address call audio problems of the iPhone 7. But along with that comes security fixes, meager as reports claim. Regardless, it becomes an issue for Pangu and other hacking groups since it pushed them back to square one.

Hence, iOS 10.0.2 may see another update soon to address the security problem and this could happen at some point that will likely catch hacker groups off-guard once more. That said, Apple seems to be way ahead of Pangu and the rest, questioning the viability of ever seeing a working jailbreak soon.

With iOS 10.0.2, the question now is whether Apple owners should upgrade to it? Traditionally the answer would be used but with the impending coming of iOS 10.0.3, some folks may opt to wait, Forbes reported.

As far as a working iOS 10 jailbreaks is concerned, it is best described as unknown. There will be a lot of individual hackers showing off their cracking success such as Lucas Todesco which may be nothing more than false hopes.

The fact that Todesco and other aspiring iOS jailbreakers cannot put out their alleged breakthroughs only means that they are no better than hoax achievements. That said, Pangu and TaiG are still the credible guys for eventual iOS jailbreaks.
