The team behind the iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak, TaiG from China, has expressed confidence that Apple's latest iOS 8.3 is jailbreakable, a new report said, adding that the same applies for the upcoming updates and builds of the iPhone/iPad mobile operating system.

In an exclusive interview, was told by TaiG lone developer XN that is "absolutely confident," of unlocking iOS 8.3 that Apple has recently released. When asked if the jailbreak activities will continue on for future iOS releases, XN declared: "Quite confident!"

To provide freedom for iDevice users

XN also clarified that TaiG is not about money as the report pointed to the 2013 initial iOS 7 jailbreak release that saw TaiG flirting with controversy for allegedly attaching the prospect of piracy with the Evasi0n7 jailbreak issued by Team Evad3rs.

Speculations were rife then that the Evad3rs forged a deal with TaiG, which the jailbreak community received with uproar - forcing the former to ditch the TaiG installer.

"We had a cooperation, not a deal. Too many pressures lead the cooperation to the end," XN explained to of the incident, adding that his work with the Evasi0n7 then was not about piracy or generating income.

"The purpose of Jailbreak is to get more freedom for users," and it remains the same for the new Taig iPhone and iPad unlocking tool, according to XN.

The TaiG jailbreak author underscored too that making money is not the core purpose of his jailbreak works. "No financial repercussions for me. I would not take it as a motivation," XN said.

Next iOS 8 jailbreak release date

The lone TaiG member also revealed that Chinese hackers will host its so-called Worldwide Jailbreak Developer Meeting on January 16, the aftermath of which could be the rollout of the iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak replacement.

Additionally, TaiG is trying its hand on the Mac OS X, a jailbreak of which could materialise soon as work on the project has already commenced. "We have started already but we're short of people, so no accurate release time yet," XN confirmed.

But what Apple and jailbreak fans can be certain about is that the TaiG jailbreak is totally safe.

"I have no reason to develop unsafe tools, people would find out. And we want to build a reputable brand so we would not ruin it," XN offered.

He added that collaboration with the Pangu Team, which provided the first iOS 8 jailbreak, for future undertakings could be in the horizon, allowing that "we are looking forward to the cooperation opportunity in the future."
