The first beta of iOS 10 has been around for only four days, but it has already been cracked by well-known Canadian hacker iH8sn0w. In a video posted on YouTube just a few hours ago, he documented that iOS 10 is indeed vulnerable to jailbreak exploits.
In the video he shared, he used a 32-bit device, an iPhone 5, so it remains an open question as to whether he can also crack 64-bit iPhones. Also, it is worth adding that iOS 10 will not be available to the public until this fall, so many things may change during the next couple months as Apple collects developer feedback and polishes its mobile operating system.
The video is a document underpinning an earlier tweet of his saying, “Cydia doesn’t crash on iOS 10”, suggesting he jailbroke iOS 10 as soon as it was released. It is worth noting that were are talking about an untethered jailbreak here.
With the evidence of iOS 10 vulnerabilities now public, it remains to be seen whether the jailbreak community will see a public jailbreak after the final version of Apple’s mobile operating system is released this fall.
