There hasn't been a release of #ios #Jailbreak #Tool from Chinese Pangu team for quite a long time now, and so fans are excited to hear the news that a tool would finally be released this week. Images from some sort of a hacking event in China teased a jailbreak tool working on iOS 10.3/10.3.1 version.

Jailbreak tool to support iPhone 7

A video and an image were shared on Chinese social media site Weibo, which shows Pangu demonstrating an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak tool for iPhone 7. There were taken at an event called Janus, a hacking seminar in China. The tool will also support 64-bit models such as iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPhone 6S and 6S plus.

As reported by Forbes, the iOS jailbreak tool could be released this week, based on a tweet from someone who has attended the said event. Whether it was a genuine information, it is yet to be confirmed. There is also little details as to what the tool can do, such as if it is untethered. If not, users would have to rerun the jailbreak app every time their Apple device restarts.

Apple has made it so hard for hackers to jailbreak its operating system, releasing updates one after another, with security patches. While the jailbreak tool is not yet released, Forbes' Anthony Leather suggests upgrading to the latest OS version so you can jailbreak your device once the tool came out. Apple is already developing the iOS 10.3.2, and when it comes out, it may patch the jailbreak.

The current jailbreak tool that supports iOS 10.3 is Yalu, which was developed by Luca Todesco.

The developer, however, announced that he has no plans to update it.

Fifth beta seeded

Apple has already seeded the fifth beta version to the developers, which they can now download from the Apple Developer Center or over the air. It is also now available for public testing, according to MacRumors. Release notes are not yet available, so there's little details as to what the update would include. But like the usual, it is expected to be packed with bug fixes and performance improvements.

The upgrade would only be released for 64-bit iOS devices, which means it would not be rolled out for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C 34-bit devices. This information, however, is yet to be confirmed as this would be the first time Apple would skip an update for a specific device.

Apple rolled out a minor update earlier this month and seeded the fourth beta just a few days ago. Rumors suggest iOS 11 will come out in June during the company's Worldwide Developers Conference.
