Here’s everything you need to know if you are wondering whether jailbreak on iOS 11 iPhone and iPad is possible, or what is the latest status update of an iOS 11 jailbreak. All your questions are answered in this post.
Apple’s iPhone and iPad users have either updated or in the process of installing the new iOS 11 mobile operating system. If you want learn what are the chances of Jailbreaking iOS 11 firmware to liberate iPhone or iPad from the clutches of Apple imposed restrictions on the use of iOS, well, if that’s the case, then keep on reading as we are going to be looking into all the latest updates regarding iOS 11 jailbreak that have surfaced recently.
Fans of iPhone/iPad jailbreak are anxious to learn about the state of the iOS 11 jailbreak in order to enjoy Cydia tweaks and to clear any doubts that they may have harbored on the possibility of jailbreaking iPhone and iPad running on Apple’s latest mobile firmware.
Those familiar with the working of iOS jailbreak community would know that it is never easy to make definitive predictions about the timeline and availability of the jailbreak solution. It hard to guess the exact release date of the updated version of the jailbreak tool for supported devices, since the process is tightly kept under wraps for obvious reason. Non-linear approach pursued by iOS jailbreak developers doesn’t help matter either. Apple follows a pre-defined schedule when it comes to releasing new iOS versions, we know that the update process of major overhaul in iOS firmware begins with an official announcement at the WWDC followed by a series of iOS beta updates and then the public release of the full version in September. However, the world of iOS jailbreak community works in its own mysterious ways. Nothing official is announced regarding the release date of jailbreak tool by its developers, and hence there is usually no way of gauging the progress of the jailbreak status and testing stage.
The current state of iOS jailbreak is that the latest publicly available jailbreak solution works on iOS 10.2 only. For firmware updates released since then, we only have a few demonstration videos showing jailbroken iOS firmware on v10.3.1. Soon after, KeenLab showed presented a demonstration of iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 beta jailbreak at MOSEC 2017. Apart from this, there is not much information currently floating around regarding the progress on iOS 10.3.2 or iOS 11 jailbreak. Moreover, nothing can be guaranteed whether the Chinese-based teams of the packages are even interested in releasing both jailbreaks, either separately or packed as one, for public.
We haven’t heard much from the official sources since the initial teaser. There hasn’t been a public showing of iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak yet, but it is highly likely that the KeenLab’s team might have worked on it since they already demoed progress on the iOS 11 beta. But things are kind of static as far as the news about the progress on the next iOS jailbreak is concerned. Nothing has hit the news waves ever since the KeenLab’s jailbreak demos for iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 beta.
iOS 11 is already out in the public so the chances of iOS 10.3.x jailbreak do get a boost, especially when considering that it’s still being officially signed by Apple (making it possible to downgrade from iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3). That being said, we would refrain from jumping ahead and make any bold claims until something is officially released by a reliable jailbreak developer or community member.
Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.3, if you have already updated to iOS 11, there is still a chance to revert your iOS device back to the iOS 10.3.3 just in case we hear anything from iOS jailbreak community in the coming days or weeks. So, if you want to jailbreak your device, we suggest that you should hold on to the previous iOS 10.x version as it has greater likelihood of getting a new jailbreak than iOS 11 as things stands.
We will keep you posted on all the latest developments on iOS 11 jailbreak, so stay tuned for more.
