Where is iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak ?
Yes, we are confused too. After iOS 9.2 was released for the public, Apple had seeded two iOS 9.2.1 betas, suggesting that iOS 9.2.1 would be the next public release. However, the version number 9.2.1 has been apparently abandoned by Apple, and without giving any specific reason, the company has decided to start sending out iOS 9.3 instead . This hints at possible major additions or improvements over iOS 9.2, which is why the company decided to go for a bigger version number.
What Change Does iOS 9.3 bring in the Jailbreak Scenario ?
The release of iOS 9.3 has changed a lot of things and has cleared up a lot of speculations. Lets take the events in order. The announcement made by 3K Assistant suggesting the existence of a successful iOS 9.2 jailbreak was modified a few days later without any explanation, thus confusing us all. However, it is possible that 3K Assistant took their words back as they saw the possible release of iOS 9.3 and hence decided to create an iOS 9.3 jailbreak instead of a jailbreak for iOS 9.2.
iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.2.1 Jailbroken Already :
A few days ago, hacker Luca Todesco announced that he had jailbroken iOS 9.2.1. But the hacker did not release the jailbreak and even announced that he does not plan to release it. Now that iOS 9.3 full version has been released, Luca has jailbroken this new version as well. The hacker has posted a video showing the iOS 9.3 beta 1 jailbreak complete with Cydia tweaks on his iPhone 6. Yes, this will not be released by Luca either. But we hope he shares the exploits with the TaiG team so that we might as well get an iOS 9.3 jailbreak soon in the form of Taig 9.3.

If everything goes well and if we are lucky enough, we might get an iOS 9.3 jailbreak before the next month ends. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
