iOS 10 is Jailbroken, but You shouldn't Jailbreak Your iPhone 7
A hacker demonstrates Cydia running on Apple iPhone 7. iOS 10 is now jailbroken.
iOS 10 jailbroken but the tool is not yet available for public
Italian jailbreaker Luca Todesco has successfully jailbroken iPhone 7 after the iOS 10 is officially released for public. Taking Twitter to show off the result, Todesco wrote 'obligatory cydia screenshot' and it quickly garnered everyone's attention.
Now that the iOS 10 is officially jailbroken, the fans of jailbreak eagerly wait for Pangu team to release their version of jailbreak. Todesco has been demonstrating jailbreaks including the beta version of iOS 10 but he never makes the software go public.

Unlike Todesco, Pangu jailbreak has always been regarded as 'legit' by the iDevice users. Although the newest OS has been jailbroken, iPhone 7 users are encouraged not to seek any jailbreaking tools just yet as Apple could release the new patch update anytime soon.
As a matter of fact, Apple OS is currently iOS 10.0.1 version. iPhone users who want to jailbreak their devices, even when the tool is available, must consider the upgrades that Apple has made with its iOS. Previously, the tech giant released iOS 9.3.5 update in a matter of weeks after the previous upgrade - which makes Pangu iOS 9.3 jailbreak no longer useful.
And let's not forget that jailbreaking your device could make it prone to malware and security breach. Apple has advanced the system to enable the devices to 'guard themselves' against any malware, BGR reported.
Will Pangu roll out iOS 10 jailbreak anytime soon?
Judging from the pattern, Pangu released jailbreak tools weeks after a major iOS upgrade rolled out by Apple. Hence, it is clear that the jailbreaking fans expect the Chinese hacker team to reveal the iOS 10 jailbreak soon. WccfTech, however, recommends users 'better off' settle with iOS 10 installation for now.
