Hacker Luca Todesco advises jailbreakers to stay away from iOS 10.2

Since Apple released iOS 10 to the public we haven't seen any public release to the jailbreak for iOS 10. However some popular iOS hackers are warning us from updating to iOS 10 and one of these hackers is hacker Luca Todesco.

Amid the current jailbreak situation, Todesco is now seen warning netizens that if they have any intention of jailbreaking iOS 10 in the future, they should stay on iOS 10.1.1 and refrain from updating to iOS 10.2 when it comes out.

iOS 10.2, more secure than ever

Although the details are scarce at this point in time, Todesco has been sharing a slew of tweets that seem to suggest iOS 10.2 has plugged up a ton of exploitable bugs in the mobile operating system.

iOS 10.2 is currently in its fifth beta as of this writing, which means the public release is imminent in the very near future. Apple could be preparing for a public release before 2017, perhaps around the same time frame as the launch of the wireless AirPods.

In some of his tweets, Todesco suggests that recent iOS betas are more secure than current public releases because they include relentless security updates that aren’t leaving much left for hackers to break into.
Although this kind of cat-and-mouse pattern has been happening for years, we are currently in a period where Apple has retained the upper hand and continues to fortify iOS with security updates regardless. Apple isn’t pulling any punches.

Todesco isn’t saying a jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 is imminent, but he is saying that you’ll have to pick which is more important to you: the chance to have a jailbreak, or having the latest security and features as they come out.

Apple’s rapid software release tactic seems to have put jailbreaking in its place for now. Consequently, having the best of both worlds, a jailbreak and the latest firmware at the same time, just isn’t a thing today. iOS 9.3.3 remains the latest jailbreakable firmware, even as the latest stock version of iOS continues to move forward.
