Throughout iOS 9, the jailbreak community was subjected to a bit of a jailbreak drought. Pangu finally produced PPHelper for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 but Apple son patched this up with iOS 9.3.4, followed very quickly by iOS 9.3.5, we still clung to the hope that Pangu would fit in one more jailbreak before iOS 9 ended but they didn’t. iOS 10 came out in September and has now been updated to fix a few bugs, bringing us to iOS 10.1 download.
Can we Jailbreak iOS 10.1 ?
No we can’t. Not yet anyway. Pangu are currently examining iOS 10.1 to see what, if any vulnerabilities exist that can be used for a mass jailbreak utility. iOS 10.1 is too new for a utility to be released immediately and is going to take some looking through and testing and Pangu will want to know if Apple’s claims of Rootless technology are true. The claim by the Cupertino company is that the new technology will stop us from jailbreaking but we already know that this not particularly true.

Luca Todesco has already proven to us that both iOS 10 and iOS 10.1 can be jailbroken, uploading videos and photographs as proof to his Twitter account of @qwertyoruiopz. However, while some people are saying that if he can do it, so can Pangu we have to remember one thing. Todesco is coming up with a kind of jailbreak for one or two devices; Pangu has to build one that is safe and will work on millions of devices and that takes time.
iOS 10.1 Features :
We already know that iOS 10 is jam packed with features, some new and some upgrades of existing features and you can see what they are in our post here. iOS 10.1 is nothing more than a minor bug fi and contains nothing new for us. However, the features in iOS 10 are more than enough for the tweak developers to get their teeth into for when the new iOS 10.1 jailbreak is released.
