The latest iOS 10 Jailbreak update has suggested that the newest version of the operating system from Apple is easier to break compared to its predecessors.

What could have been the basis for this conclusion? Did the American tech giant purposely make it more convenient to unlock?

It can be recalled that in July, Chinese hacker group Pangu first showcased the iOS 10 jailbreak at the MOSEC 2016, but Apple has continuously suspended the attempt to hack their operating system.

Is it really easy to enter? Then, why does the team of hackers still haven't completely hacked the said OS?

Forbes has declared that the Chinese group must not have any difficulty in accessing Apple's mobile OS and problems must be out of the picture since "Apple barely touched on the security features of the latest OS meaning the Chinese hacker group should find it fairly easier to come up with an iOS 10 jailbreak." 

It was suggested that an update to Pangu's attempt to unlock the said operating system from the Cupertino, a California-based multinational company will finally come to reality by October this year.

While the iOS 10 jailbreak update is not yet around, owners of iOS-based devices have been advised to avoid downloading the rumored hack from unreliable and unknown sites as they may pose some risks.

In the meantime, Redmond Pie reported that Pangu has just been successful in using the iOS 10 jailbreak in an iPad. 

Accordingly, Luca Tedesco has shared a video of the final version of the firmware running on the Apple tablet, particularly the iPad Air 2 or the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

"Running his jailbreak app, titled yalux_clean, allows the device to be put into a jailbroken state, after which he shows a custom Anemone theme running on the iPad that changes the appearance of all of the installed icons," the report dished about iOS 10 jailbreak.
