Yesterday, July 5th, Apple released iOS 10.3.3 Beta 6 version. This is currently available only for developers for testing. Needless to say, Apple is nearing its completion before officially releasing the final version. So how would an iOS 10.3.3 affect the future of jailbreaking?

Nothing New, Just Bug Fixes

According to MacRumors, Apple has already seeded the sixth beta version of the upcoming iOS 10.3.3 update to developers and public beta testers. The release was made one week after fifth beta version and over a month after releasing iOS 10.3.2.

All registered developers can download iOS 10.3.3 Beta 6 version from the Apple Developer Center or thru over-the-air if configuration profiles are already installed. For public beta testers, the iOS 10.3.3 Beta 6 version is only available over-the-air after installing the configuration profile.

Just like the first five beta versions, iOS 10.3.3 Beta 6 version contains bug fixes, updates and some small improvements. According to WCCFTech, the iOS 10.3.3 Beta 6 only includes new wallpapers for 12.9-inch iPad Pro - no other visible changes except some minor bug fixes. With this, all signs now lead to Apple releasing the final version anytime soon. By the way, most tech analysts believe that iOS 10.3.3 would be the final version before Apple introduces iOS 11.

Apple iOS 10.3.3 Release Effect on Jailbreak

The release of iOS 10.3.3 marks another sad chapter for the jailbreak community. For one, while there is a known jailbreak solution for iOS 10.3.2 which is latest mobile operating system version, there are no updates as far as whether the creators are willing to release a jailbreak tool, or not.

Second, once Apple releases iOS 10.3.3, it wouldn't take long before they decide to stop signing in iOS 10.3.2, thereby effectively cutting ties from the old mobile operating system. Like what Apple has done in the past, they are constantly upgrading the iOS version. This is one of their many ways to discourage Apple users from jailbreaking their devices.

However, given the current situation wherein the known jailbreak solution is intended for iOS 10.3.2 and not iOS 10.3.3, the jailbreak community is asking - will there be a jailbreak tool release, or not? This should also serve as a warning to Apple users looking for a jailbreak tool - there is no known jailbreak tool for iOS 10.3.2 currently available so beware.
