Rumors have been circulating that hacker groups PanGu and TaiG have decided to delay the release of the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak to coincide with Apple's release of iOS 9.3.

No announcements have been made as to the release date of iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak, and it is easy to infer that it will not be launched anytime soon. There are rumors stating that, in order to prevent Apple from generating a more protected operating system, PanGu and TaiG have strategically moved their jailbreak release date to coincide with Apple's. In addition, many iOS users were disappointed to find out that no jailbreak tool followed after the release of iOS 9.2.1.

Meanwhile, Inquistr has reported that Apple is looking into a more secure operating system and is continuously trying to figure out the vulnerabilities that PanGu and TaiG are able to break into. According to Neuro Gadget, Apple was able to patch the vulnerabilities which PanGu was able to breach for iOS 9.1 and, while there are rumors circulating that a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.2 is already in the offing, it was reported that such will not be leaked to the public. 

On the other hand, Italian hacker Luca Todesco, otherwise known as qwertyoruiop, has claimed that a jailbreak is possible for iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, and 9.3 beta. He asserted that he was able to break into the Apple software. In addition, he posted a screenshot on his Twitter account and published a video on YouTube as evidence to his claims. Despite the lack of confirmation of its existence, numerous iOS users are already tweeting qwertyoruiop for the release date of the jailbreak.

For many years, Apple has been working to make its latest iOS versions unbreachable and to ward off any jailbreak tools that are being used by hacking companies. By jailbreaking their devices, iOS users are able to customize their smartphone applications and unlock features that have been inaccessible to them.
