If latest reports are to be believed, Apple will be releasing the iOS 10.2 in December 2016. This means, Chinese jailbreaking group Pangu could also be releasing the iOS 10 jailbreak in December. Tech experts stated that the iOS 10.2 is already in the beta testing phase and once released, it will come with a whole set of bug fixes and new features.

Once Apple users have installed the update, Pangu could be releasing the iOS 10 jailbreak. Pangu has earlier claimed that it has already jailbroken Apple’s latest operating system but is simply waiting for the Cupertino-based company to release their update first, writes NEUROGADGET.

There is another set of fans who believe that this time, even Pangu hasn’t succeeded in jailbreaking the Apple iOS 10, as the tech giant has claimed that the iOS 10 is the most secure system ever built by Apple. Whatever may be the reason, Pangu has been absolutely silent on the matter and is simply waiting for the latest update to be released.

It does not want any information to get leaked as Apple will then quickly patch the glitches. Pangu reportedly does not want Apple to have the slightest clue as to how it has jailbroken the iOS 10 operating system, writes Mobile & Apps. However, it is known that most jailbreaking groups have failed in cracking open the system and even Pangu had a tough time.

Moreover, there are no reports confirming whether Pangu has actually jailbroken Apple iOS 10. If at all, Pangu succeeds in releasing a jailbreak, Apple won’t be happy about it as it seems confident that its operating system cannot be jailbroken.

Many believe that Apple’s regular updates on its operating system are the primary reason for the delay. Fans are still waiting for the iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak tool. Meanwhile, known hacker Luca Todesco has claimed that he has a jailbreak ready but hasn’t released anything as of now.
