UPDATE – Check our latest review about iOS 9 jailbreak on the public release of iOS 9. We have summed up all what we know so far.
Apple making iOS better and better. According to predictions iOS 9 will be as much as perfect than ever. Than means iOS 9 jailbreak will be extremely tough or almost not possible. Within last several iOS upgrades we seen enough examples of Apple beating jailbreak developers and patch up every vulnerability of iOS which discovered by iOS hackers around the worlds. This might be due to Apple started working closely with some genius Jailbreak developers and most probably they passed all discovered vulnerabilities to Apple system developers.
Jailbreak is some kind of threat to iOS and Apple device’s stability. Users get crash, malfunction or damage their devices by using jailbreak apps without much knowledge and also get scammed easily. In the history Apple has worked hard to overcome jailbreak possibility of iOS. If you are not aware about jailbreak, It’s simply hacking into the iOS system core and get privileges to control the device as you wish with third party apps and tweaks which not officially permitted or rejected by Apple.
Anyway, Jailbreak iOS 9 will be important if you are an Cydia enthusiast. Because although you can keep current devices jailbroken by refusing to upgrade, the new iPhone 6S and other latest versions definitely comes with iOS 9.
iOS 9 supported devices
- Upcoming iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 plus S and all upcoming iPads
- iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5
- iPad Air 2 , iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2
You can try iOS 9 beta versions when they are available in Public Beta testing program. But keep in mind that you cannot downgrade from iOS 9 to iOS 8 after Apple officially release iOS 9 to the public. As same as you will lose your current iOS 8 jailbreak. There are rumors around that iPhone 4S also will be compatible with iOS 9. but we can’t predict about that Apple release iOS 9 beta.
TaiG Jailbreak iOS 9
Neither TaiG nor Pangu will jailbreak iOS 9 after introducing rootless technology. All vulnerabilities they used to exploit iOS system are outdated now. TaiG or Pangu hasn’t discovered anything new to exploit any iOS iOS version after iOS 8.1.2 so they failed to jailbreak iOS 8.3 and 8.4. Even no jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3. iOS 8.3 and 8.4 will be stable enough to exist for a long time and it’s a good time to release a jailbreak for these versions if they already have the job done.
iOS 9 preview
According to Apple, prevent iOS 9 jailbreak is their effort to protect Apple users from spam and unexpected crashes. The new security technology which they going to prevent jailbreak iOS 9 is called “rootless”.
Cydia will never get admin privileges on iOS 9 with rootless technology which means no iOS 9 jailbreak. But we are hopeful about capability of iOS hackers. undoubtedly the iOS 9 jailbreak will be a big challenge for them.
