When Apple released iOS 9.3.4, they did it with the express intention of patching off the PPHelper jailbreak. Containing only exploit patches, our advice to you at the time was not to update to iOS 9.3.4 unless you had no interest in jailbreaking. Now, the Cupertino Company has dropped another update on us, iOS 9.3.5 download. This also contains only security fixes, no additional features or improvements but this time, it isn’t to stop a jailbreak. Apple has been working hard on providing a fix for malware that was being installed on iPhones with the intention of accessing and intercepting communications and data and iOS 9.3.5 is the result of their work.

Should You Update to iOS 9.3.5 ?
If you are at all concerned about the malware, about whether your device has been infected, then you should update to iOS 9.3.5. However, if you have installed PPHelper jailbreak and you really don’t want to lose it then no, don’t update. Do be aware that, if you went on to iOS 9.3.4, you can’t go backwards anymore – iOS 9.3.3 is not being signed and that means there is no open route for you to go back, only onwards.
iOS 9.3.5 Jailbreak Release Date :
PPHelper is the latest jailbreak that you can use and is likely to remain that way until iOS 10 is released. Although Pangu will be looking into the latest update, there is no guarantee that they will use any exploits they find for an iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak. Also, we must take into consideration that fully working jailbreaks are not produced in 5 minutes and, with iOS 10 only a few short weeks off release [September 2016], Pangu may not be able to release a jailbreak before then. Or they may choose to wait for iOS 10 and concentrate on producing an iOS 10 jailbreak for that. The team will have been testing the beta versions so they will have some idea by now of what to expect and whether there will be any point in waiting or not.
