iOS 10 Jailbreak Finally Released but You Shouldn't Use The Tool Yet as iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Reportedly Hits Soon
After waiting for so long, iOS 10 jailbreak is finally rolled out but there are a few reasons why iPhone users shouldn't jailbreak their devices.
iOS 10 jailbreak Yalu officially released by Luca Todesco
The jailbreak community was surprised when Italian hacker, Luca Todesco, announced that he has broken free iOS 10 restrictions and made it available for public download, as reported by 1RedDrop. It is an unusual move from the hacker who often demonstrates the jailbreak tools running on Apple devices without making them go public.
- iOS 10 jailbreak Yalu is not stable yet
Todesco has claimed that the iOS 10 jailbreak Yalu is not stable yet as it is in beta version. Hence, it can be argued that the intention of the crack release was for developers instead of for public. If the hacker himself stated that the software is unstable, then there is no point in jailbreaking iPhone just to find out that there could be glitches in the next few days.
- iOS 10 jailbreak may promote unwanted tweaks
The iOS 10 jailbreak status is a 'pre-released' software which could actually cause more problems as developers might make a few tweaks that aren't supposed to be used by end-users. If the tweak goes wrong, it will force iPhone to restore iTunes, WccFtech reported.
- Missing out security patch and bug fixes
Jailbreaking an iPhone means that user will have to stick to an old firmware instead of updating it to the latest iOS version. This means that the device will be more prone to malware and bugs, 9to5mac reported.
- iOS 10.2 Jailbreak could be released soon
Many tech analysts have suggested users not to use the iOS 10.1 hack yet as in Pangu could be finalizing the tool and releasing a stable iOS 10.2 jailbreak soon. It may be a long-wait but if a reliable jailbreak will function better, then there is no use of risking the device.
A stable iOS 10 jailbreak is worth the wait
With that being the case, it is recommended that iDevice users wait for a matter of two weeks before any stable iOS 10 jailbreak is released.
