Open-code developers seem to have finally cracked Apple’s most recent operating system, and the jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and 8.4 will be released very soon. There has been a lot of anticipation surrounding this jailbreak and Apple users have become very anxious indeed.
Jailbreak for iOS 8.3 Update
There are reports that the Pangu jailbreak team has demonstrated a completely functional jailbroken iOS 8.3 at a MOSEC event, which is a mobile secure conference that is sponsored by the team. Roughly translated from Japanese, the post on Tools4Hack indicates that the jailbreak for iOS 8.3 will be released to the public very soon.
Jailbreak for iOS 8.4 Update
As for the iOS 8.4 jailbreak, it is going to depend entirely on the developments that Apple makes. It could be possibly that jailbreaking teams are just waiting until iOS 8.4 is released before they try to jailbreak it.
Apple has already addressed the whole jailbreaking security issue earlier this year, but their attempts at preventing people from jailbreaking the new operating system will likely be fruitless. While there is no firm date set for the release of an iOS 8.4 jailbreak, it is inevitable and will come very soon.
As of right now there are no details on when Apple users will be able to actually get and use jailbreaking software for the two most current version of Apple’s operating systems, but Apple will first have to launch the beta version of iOS 9 at the upcoming WWDC event, which is scheduled for June 8 to the 12th. Check the updates of this post at the bottom.
Today there are far fewer people working on jailbreaking iOS devices, but Pangu is definitely still on the front-lines, trying to let Apple users gain access to third party apps with their devices. Even though nothing is set in stone right now, jailbreaking for iOS 8.3 and 8.4 definitely looks optimistic.
Conclusion: if you are planning to move to iOS 8.3 we think you can do it knowing that a new jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3 will be available soon. Regarding to iOS 8.4 we would say that you should wait for more information.
