Since iOS 10 was released in September, Apple has issued an almost non-stop slew of updates in a bid to keep the latest iOS firmware as free of bugs as they can and running smoothly for the majority of users. While most people are completely happy with what Apple has offered up, there are those that are missing what they see to be a vital component of their iOS experience , a jailbreak. With iOS 10.2 download [ext link] now released to the public, we can only hope that this is the one that will provide us with the iOS 10.2 jailbreak [ext link] we are so desperately awaiting.

PP iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Release Date ?
Right now, we know that PP jailbreak team are busy working on the next jailbreak for us. With iOS 10.2 newly released, much of their time will be spent on finding out if any of their existing vulnerabilities have been patched up or if there are any new ones they can make use of. We can’t expect an iOS 10.2 jailbreak to be released immediately because it takes time to come up with a utility that is safe for everyone to use and one that will work on the majority of active iOS 10 devices.

There are those who are complaining that Luca Todesco has proved that iOS 10 can be jailbroken yet PP team don’t seem to be coming up with anything for us. We need to keep a few things in mind, namely that Todesco only actually applied a jailbreak to a couple of iOS devices whereas PP have to come up with something that goes much further and much wider. There is also the Apple Bug Bounty Program to consider. This is Apple’s new program where they are offering to pay up to $200,000 to researchers who find vulnerabilities and that could be a sum of money that some can’t turn down. This means the vulnerabilities that PP could have been using for their jailbreaks have already been turned in to Apple and patched up.
Apple Blocking iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Progress :
On top of that, Apple made a promise to stop jailbreaking in it tracks with the inclusion of Rootless, their new security system that blocks access to some of the more important files in the iOS system, including to those who have admin rights of access. While they may not have been entirely successful at stopping jailbreaking altogether, they may have succeeded in significantly slowing things down, at least for the time being.
