A few days after the release of Apple's latest mobile operating system, iOS 10, the very first update, iOS 10.0.1, arrived. While for some it suggests that Apple has been quite prudent when it comes to timely responding to issues, bugs and what not, many believe otherwise. How so?

This is because jailbreak teams are hunting down iOS 10 and they already did back in MOSEC 2016. In fact a few days after the said event, video tutorials displaying how hackers jailbreak iOS 10 has surfaced online, and was even translated into different languages.

But perhaps the single "most terrifying reason" for Apple to immediately release the update is the alleged Pangu jailbreak tool. For those who are not familiar with jailbreaking, Pangu is a hacker group that has constantly released jailbreak tool for Apple's mobile operating system.

In fact, Pangu was the group that released the last four jailbreak tools for iOS 8.x and iOS 9.x. PPJailbreak team also helped in the development of two of the said jailbreak tools.

So why would Apple release an update with such a rush? What's inside iOS 10.0.1 that Apple mobile users should download and update? As posted by Forbes, here are the bug fixes and improvements associated on the latest iOS 10.0.1:

1. Fixes an issue that could prevent recognizing "Hey Siri" requests.

2. Fixes issues that could affect audio quality for calls made over VoLTE.

3. Fixes issues that could impact Bluetooth connectivity and pairing with Apple Watch.

4. Improves stability of the Camera and Contacts apps.

The question is, after almost three months of iOS 10 on Beta state, Apple programmers only realized that there are a few glitches "a few days" after its official release? No, that's not the reason. In fact, this kind of "patch-a-little, update-more-often" way only justified that Apple is continuously pursuing its ways to prevent hackers from jailbreaking iOS.

But should you upgrade to iOS 10? Guess if there's no solid evidence that Pangu or even PPJailbreak will soon release a jailbreak tool, then upgrade would be the best thing to do, for now.
