At last, some news that we have all been waiting for – it is possible to jailbreak iOS 10.0.1 . Luca Todesco is back on the scene again with another of his jailbreak photos, this time, an iPhone 7 running iOS 10.0.1. We are more than used to Todesco doing this, whenever a new iOS firmware is released but he has never yet released a jailbreak to the public, preferring to keep them for his own private use.

Not long after iOS 10 was released to the public, Todesco released a video showing an iPad jailbroken on the new firmware but he is the first person to publicly show a jailbreak on the brand new iPhone 7, released just a couple of days after iOS 10. The photo was posted to Todesco’s Twitter [ext link] account, under his handle of @qwertyoruiopz, and shows the new Black iPhone 7 running Cydia 1.1.26.

There will be those who doubt the photo and claim it has been photoshopped and that we can’t trust it but Luca does have a proven history and the skills to tell us that this is a genuine jailbreak. The big question people will ask, and always ask is, will we see this jailbreak released publicly and the answer to that is a definitive no. While Todesco is happy to show off his skills in finding and exploiting the vulnerabilities in iOS 10.0.1, he doesn’t do this to provide a jailbreak. Instead, it is all part of his own research on mobile security and will never be provided to us for use.
iOS 10.0.1 Jailbreak Release Date :
That said, we can still take this as good news because it proves that Apple has not beaten jailbreaking yet, despite the addition of extra security in iOS 10. That means that Taig and or Pangu should not have any trouble in producing a working jailbreak at some point in the near future. Whether they choose to work alone or in some part with Luca on an iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak remains to be seen but, whatever they do, they will want to produce a jailbreak that works on as many iOS 10 devices as possible. Do keep in mind that, like PPHelper, there is a high chance that any jailbreak produced from now on will only work on 64 bit devices.
