Apple has released the final version of iOS 10.2 and now the Apple Jailbreaking community awaits the much-bragged bout iOS 10 jailbreak from Pangu. Recall that the Chinese hacking group reportedly had a tool ready and that it was awaiting for the Cupertino company to make that move.

All that became official Monday, barely days after Apple released the seventh beta for iOS 10.2. The latest mobile operating system is expected to come filled with fixes though a look at the patch notes shows more of content and enhancements so far, Forbes reported.

That includes emoji, widgets and a TV app plus improvements to accessibility and authentication. Much of this was detailed over at Apple.com.

iOS 10 has been far from impressive, one that has carried bugs and performance issues. That includes security breaches discovered by third-party security firms, surprising something that Pangu and hackers were unable to exploit.

Seemingly absent was a fix for the dreaded battery drain issue. Some iPhone owners have complained of device shutdowns when battery levels reached 30-percent, something Apple claims was a purposely placed feature. The only problem is that such should activate only if phones were under extremely cold conditions.

With Apple doing its part, Pangu is once again in the limelight. No iOS 10 jailbreak has so far been made public, the last of which was iOS 9.3.4. The alleged iOS 10 crack comes with wider features and allegedly open source, shaping up to be a flexible solution for ones used to applying jailbreaks to their devices.

Pangu may take its time seeing first what Apple has done with iOS 10.2, before deploying its iOS 10 jailbreak. If the Chinese group is to release one, they may need to come up with one fast. Some may upgrade to the latest iOS soon to address current issues with their devices.

Failure of Pangu to live up to its end with the iOS 10.2 could damper their credibility – not to mention put an end to any form of iOS jailbreak moving forward.
