iOS 10 is now coming up for 3 months old and still there is no sign of a public jailbreak. We have seen plenty of demos for personal jailbreaks, such as those that we saw early on in iOS 10 from Luca Todesco but these are not going to be made available for public use. Being a security researcher and iOS developer, Todesco gets an early look at the latest firmware and, with iOS 10.2 in beta, he has had the chance to look deep into it and see what is coming up in the near future.

We already know that iOS 10.2 download [ext link] is going to bring a few new features but Todesco has now warned that it also contains a lot of security updates that are making it very difficult for jailbreak teams and hackers. Using his Twitter account, he has warned us that updating to iOS 10.2 when it is released could mean not being able to jailbreak. He says that, for those iOS users that are waiting for a jailbreak, it is best not to update to iOS 10.2 and stick with an earlier version, like iOS 10.1.1.
iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Update :
We haven’t had any word from Taig team on when they will be releasing an iOS 10 jailbreak but this is not an unusual occurrence. They prefer not to talk about their work, waiting until they are ready to release the jailbreak and, with the number of updates that Apple is releasing, their work is cut out for them. Whether they will be able to find a way to iOS 10.2 Jailbreak [ext link] or whether they will provide us with a jailbreak for an earlier version of iOS 10 is anyone’s guess and, right now, we have a couple of choices open to us.
If you are already using the latest jailbreak, PPHelper for iOS 9.3.3, hang on to it and don’t update. If you have already updated, you have to decide – if you desperately want the jailbreak, don’t update to iOS 10.2 when it is released but you will leave your iPhone or iPad open to security risks. If you want the security updates, new features and other improvements then you should update to iOS 10.2 but will more than likely have to do without a jailbreak.
