iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Delayed Due To iOS 8.4’s Impending Launch
The release of a jailbreak for iOS 8.3 may be delayed because of the impending launch of iOS 8.4, suggests reports.
According to GottaBeMobile, Apple’s security schedules are the main reason for the delay. If the jailbreak was to be released now for iOS 8.3, Apple’s release of the new 8.4 version would simply make the jailbreak useless.
With the introduction of iOS 8.3, Apple has made it impossible to rollback to 8.2 or 8.1.3. The company purposely aimed at the large amount of hacks available in the market by installing high-grade security systems for its operating system.
Hence, jailbreak teams are now delaying the release, so as to simply focus on 8.4 instead. On that note, iOS 8.4 is currently in its beta stage and should be out to the public soon.
Previously, the new OS iteration was said to be impossible to be hacked. However, one jailbreak developer known as Stefan Esser (known as i0n1c) recently released a video proving he was able to jailbreak the new iOS 8.4.
Esser, though, will not be releasing the jailbreak to the public due to a dispute with TaiG, another team dedicated to jailbreaking. Esser claims that his work has been stolen by TaiG in the past and hence, he will not be releasing his latest hack.
This leaves it up to other jailbreak developers like TaiG and Pangu to either purchase Esser’s work or come up with their own. Either way, we’ll probably see the jailbreak arrive once Apple officially releases the iOS 8.4 patch update.
