iOS 8.3 Jailbreak TaiG Untethered 2.1.3 Tutorial, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPod touch and More – Very early this morning, world renowned hacking group TaiG released an all new jailbreak 8.3 untethered solution (the very same group who created the previous iOS 8 through 8.1.2 and iOS 8.2 betas 1 and 2 jailbreak utility). The latest update to the TaiG jailbreak, being TaiG 2.0 (which has now been updated to version 2.1.3) for iOS 8, is capable of successfully delivering a hassle-free Untethered jailbreak on iOS 8.3 for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models. This release, like its processor, came out of the blue and certainly wasn’t expected – in fact, TaiG confirmed in a recent interview that they had no plans on releasing another iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.3; it’s a good thing they employed the use of this tactic to divert attention. We now have a fully functioning iOS 8.3 jailbreak that also includes support for iOS 8.1.3 and 8.2! Like TaiG’s older predecessor, the tool comes bundled with Cydia (the graphical user interface for distributing third-party packages and iOS tweaks). Moreover, jailbreaking iOS 8.3 on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, the Retina display iPad Mini 2, the original iPad Air and iPad mini, the iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and the iPod touch 5th generation is as easy and fluid as ever.

Jailbreak iOS 9 Untethered Update: Pangu, TaiG and K33N, How to Jailbreak iOS 9.0 and 8.4 Status – In light of iOS 9 having recently entered developer beta testing, and the fact that Pangu has successfully achieved an iOS 8.3 jailbreak, it’s time to look forward towards the future: the second half of 2015, iOS 9’s release and beyond. iOS 9.0 will be released to the general public in the fall of 2015, alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as is already known to be the target of a few teams interested in jailbreaking iOS 9. However, to address the current state of jailbreak affairs prior to discussing what’s next for the community, the latest iOS 8.1.2 (and 8.2 betas 1 and 2) Untethered PP and TaiG jailbreak utilities were patched some months ago by Apple with the release of iOS 8.1.3 – a patch that’s persisted throughout iOS 8.x updates, including iOS 8.3 and the four iOS 8.4 betas. Before the public, and jailbreakers the world over, can truly settle into contemplating future iOS 9 utilities, when will we receive the final jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4, which will certainly be the final chapter for iOS 8.x? Looking back, last year’s iOS 7.1.x Pangu jailbreak remained unpatched from June of 2014 until September, when Apple issued iOS 8.0 to the masses,which is crucial to Having said that, when will the next jailbreak be released for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod touch 5 and other iOS-based devices? Will jailbreak teams skip iOS 8.3 and 8.4 all together to jailbreak iOS 9? For a closer look at what to expect when it comes to the future and jailbreaking, particularly in relation to iOS 8.4 and 9.0, continue past the break!
Apple Watch Jailbreak Coming After iOS 9 Utility? Forget About iOS 8.3 Jailbreak! – Recently, ensuing Apple’s WWDC last week and the release of iOS 9.0 beta 1, a new team dubbed K33N announced that they may have a major role to play in jailbreaking moving forward – specifically beyond the suspected forthcoming Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 for the inevitable iOS 9 update. However, what’s even more tantalizing is the prospect of an Apple Watch jailbreak. Currently, beyond developers being locked into creating apps strictly via WatchKit, apps don’t run natively on the Apple Watch – instead, apps run in the background on the iPhone the Watch is paired with and are mirrored to the device. With WatchOS 2 (the next major update for the Apple Watch that was announced alongside iOS 9 and WWDC), which is launching this fall, Apple is opening up native app development for the Watch. Having said that, there will still be limitations even for native apps: e.g. access to manipulating the core user interface isn’t permitted, as Apple wants to control the Apple Watch experience for all apps to maintain the same exquisite design standards the company is renowned for. As you can imagine, that doesn’t bode well for those seeking to customize their devices – enter, jailbreaking! For more on the future of jailbreak past iOS 8.3 and the latest news in Apple Watch jailbreaking, continue reading past the break.
PP States iOS 8.3 Jailbreak to be Released in July, after 8.4, K33n’s iOS 9 Jailbreak Plans – Today, following the conclusion of WWDC on Monday, a few interesting developments in the realm of jailbreaking have come to light. Without an iOS 8.3 jailbreak from either TaiG or Pangu, those new to the scene are undoubtedly starting to panic as we approach one of the longest periods we’ve had to wait for a new jailbreak utility – second only to days of iOS 6 – iOS 7, when 6.1.3 patched the jailbreak in March, 2013 and we didn’t receive a new untethered utility until evasi0n7 in December, 2013. So, with Pangu having recently demonstrated their ability to jailbreak iOS 8.3 at MOSEC and with iOS 8.4 right around the corner, what can we expect as far as a new jailbreak for iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3? Interestingly, PP Assistant (the group behind the Mac OS X port of TaiG) recently shared their insider opinion on the topic. Moreover, what about moving forward – i.e. jailbreaking past iOS 8.3? According to new details from Forbes, an elite group of Chinese hackers dubbed Keen Team, also spelled K33n, may have their sights on jailbreaking iOS 9 once the firmware is made available to the public later this fall.
Following the incredibly exciting unveiling of iOS 9 earlier today during Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015, Apple officially seeded the first iOS 9 beta, being 9.0 beta 1, to those enrolled in the company’s iOS Developer program. In the latest beta firmware, iOS 9, Apple has not only heavily focused on a deep and system-wide performance and security boost, but they’ve also added a number of exciting new features. However, before you continue further with the intent of jumping ship from iOS 8.x onto the iOS 9 bandwagon, just know that as with the latest iOS 8.3 public firmware (or its two predecessors: 8.2 and 8.1.3), users who update their devices to iOS 9 beta 1 from an earlier jailbreakable iOS 8 build will regrettably forfeit their ability to jailbreak, as 8.3 remains unjailbroken; at least for the public. Having said that, in this informational tutorial, we’ll demonstrate an iTunes security flaw that allows devices running iOS 8 through 8.3 to update to iOS 9 beta 1 without having said devices’ UDID registered through an iOS Developer account – for more information, continue onwards past the break.
