With iOS 10 and the iPhone 7 | iPhone 7 Plus now released publicly, attention is turning to a jailbreak for the new iOS 10.0.1 firmware. While we haven’t heard anything from Taig or Pangu just yet, we have got proof that iOS 10.0.1 can indeed be jailbroken. As usual, Luca Todesco has stepped up to the plate with the proof that we need, with a video and a photograph of Cydia running on iOS 10.

The first was a video showing an iPad jailbroken on iOS 10 and this was followed by a photo of a brand new black iPhone 7 running Cydia v1.1.26 [image below] on the latest iOS 10.0.1, the very first proof of a jailbreak on the latest generation of smartphone from the Cupertino company. For anyone that wants to see that photo, it has been posted on Twitter [ext link] under the handle of @qwertyoruiopz, which is Todesco’s official Twitter account. As this is a photograph, there are bound to be those who shout foul and claim it has been faked, demanding a video as real proof. However, the video of the iPad on iOS 10 provides us with that proof and Todesco’s long history and not inconsiderable skill set as a hacker and developer also provides us with proof enough that this is real.

One thing that will never happen, and never has happened in all the time Todesco has been producing these jailbreak videos | photos, is that we will never be able to use this jailbreak on our own devices. While he has proved beyond any shadow of doubt time and time again, that he is highly skilled at looting and exploiting vulnerabilities in the iOS, he does it purely for his own research on security for mobile devices, not for public release.

What he has done though is proven to us that, despite all of Apple’s best efforts at trying to stop jailbreaking once and for all, they haven’t won yet. Instead, we have the proof that iOS 10 can be jailbroken and we now have to wait for the jailbreak teams to put it all together in something that can be used by as many jailbreakers on as many iOS devices as possible. Right now, the latest jailbreak is PPHelper for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 and if you want to hang on to it, don’t update your iOS device to iOS 10 or iOS 10.0.1 download [ext link].
