Apple stunned the world after releasing iOS 10 by coming up with two successive updates. Interestingly, Chinese hacking team Pangu has not released any Apple iOS 10 jailbreak tool up to now. Many have found the whole thing strange as Apple generally does not release updates so quickly and secondly, hacking teams have never failed in producing a jailbreak for so long.

Some said that Pangu was very close in releasing the iOS 10 jailbreak tool but an iOS 10.0.1 update stalled its development. However, if fresh reports are to be believed, the hacking group Pangu has already jailbroken Apple iOS 10 and is simply waiting for the right time to strike, writes iTech Post.

Previously everybody thought that Apple may have finally clean bowled Pangu for not releasing a jailbreak tool. Moreover, the quick updates in succession were a shock and tech experts believed that the updates had additional security features. But this may not be the case and Pangu could be playing a more calculated game this time.

According to a rumour on iJailbreak, Pangu is ready with the Apple iOS 10 jailbreak tool. In fact, the hacking team had claimed earlier that it had broken the beta version of the new Apple OS. Rumour has it that Pangu is fine-tuning the jailbreak tool before releasing it officially in the market. It is also closely following Apple’s footsteps to anticipate its next moves.

Pangu could also be trying to extend the compatibility of the Apple iOS 10 jailbreak tool to more devices. This in turn will reduce installation issues. If this is what Pangu is really up to, then it makes complete sense why there has been a delay in the Apple iOS 10 jailbreak tool.

Pangu is avoiding any chances of the iOS 10 jailbreak tool becoming redundant. With every update Apple releases, the jailbreak tool also needs to be updated.
