The latest iOS firmware to be released by Apple is the long-awaited iOS 10, followed very closely by iOS 10.0.1 download [ext link]. Along with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, both of which have also just been released, the new firmware is proving to be highly popular and has so far been downloaded by millions of users across the globe. So now we have to look to the next jailbreak, something we have come to expect with the release of every new firmware. Apple promised to make things harder this time around for jailbreakers but it seems that they haven’t made it hard enough.

Luca Todesco, famed Italian iOS developer and hacker, has once again come through with proof that a new firmware can be jailbroken within days of iOS 10 being released publicly, he uploaded a video showing an iPad on iOS 10 jailbroken and has now released a further photograph that shows an iPhone 7 running Cydia on iOS 10.0.1 [ext link]. The photo has been uploaded to his Twitter account under the handle of @qwertyoruiopz [ext link] if you want to go and check it out for yourselves.

While there will doubtless be those who say photos can be faked and edited easy enough, we do have the video proof that iOS 10 can be jailbroken and we also have Todesco’s background, skill set and history in developing for and hacking iOS firmwares and that alone is enough to tell us that this is real, not a fake photo. A word of caution, though – don’t go rushing to update to iOS 10.0.1 just because of this proof. This doesn’t tell us that a jailbreak is imminent and Todesco is never going to release this jailbreak to us for use. Instead, although he does this on a regular basis, it is all part of his own research on mobile security, not for public use.
iOS 10.0.1 Jailbreak Release Date :
Of course, now that we know iOS 10 can be jailbroken, we can expect Taig Team [ Taig 10.0.1 ] and Pangu Team to be diligently working away on a public utility, one that will support as many iOS 10 compatible devices as possible. We can’t say when such a utility will be released because it is not an easy job to produce something that the masses can use safely. If you are currently using the PPHelper jailbreak on iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3, hang on to it for now and wait for more news on the iOS 10 jailbreak.
