With Apple’s iPhone SE and new 9.7-inch iPad unveiling event currently underway, the excitement and sheer anticipation amongst Apple enthusiasts the globe over couldn’t be higher! Apple is expected to reveal (at the bare minimum) new iPhone and iPad models, the former will likely be a 4-inch iPhone with iPhone 6S comparable internals.
Today something unusual happened in the realm of Jailbreaking, Pangu released an updated version of their Pangu9 Jailbreak utility; but it’s not what it appears! The new Pangu9 v1.3.0 utility only supports iOS 9.1 (a firmware that was succeeded by both iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 months ago) and 64-bit devices, which we’ll loop back to shortly. This is both a huge and a rather strange deal, considering only a select few on a now outdated firmware will be able to take advantages of the new Pangu Jailbreak iOS 9.1 utility, but let’s get started.

Welcome to the two hundredth and thirty-ninth episode of my series entitled BestTechInfo and Rumors! In today’s episode I discuss the next Untethered Jailbreak post iOS 9.2.1, the new iOS 9.3 beta 3 firmware, what we can expect from both TaiG and Pangu for Jailbreaking, iPhone 7 and iPhone 5SE rumors, the iPad Air 3 and more.
Yesterday, Apple seeded the second beta iteration of the forthcoming iOS 9.3 update to registered developers exactly two weeks after the first beta of the firmware was made available and approximately one week ensuing iOS 9.2.1’s public release.
Following two beta seeds, Apple released iOS 9.2.1 to the general public today to address minor issues that persisted in iOS 9.2. The new iOS 9.2.1 firmware, as expected, is available as an OTA (over-the-air) update and via the more traditional iTunes update method. Succeeding iOS 9.2 and preceding iOS 9.3, the latest iOS 9.2.1 firmware is a rather small release focused mainly on performance enhancements, behind the scene improvements, and security changes.
Today, in a surprise move, Apple seeded iOS 9.3 beta 1 to registered developers. Interestingly, iOS 9.2.1 (which was initially seeded to developers on January 4th) remains in its second beta stage, suggesting that a public release may be imminent. Being the third major iOS 9 update, 9.3 actually offers more features and improvements than even its predecessor, iOS 9.2, including something truly remarkable: Apple-branded f.lux, dubbed Night Shift!
This morning, almost three weeks following its initial beta release, Apple seeded iOS 9.2.1 beta 2 to registered developers enrolled in the company’s program. Currently, as with its predecessor, it remains unknown exactly which changes are introduced in iOS 9.2.1 beta 2.
F.lux is arguably one of, if not, the most popular Jailbreak tweaks in existence – it modifies the display’s color warmth at night to create a more pleasant usability experience. However, with the release of iOS 9.2, as well as Apple’s latest hardware release (being the iPad Pro), countless Jailbreakers who remain stuck on vanilla iOS 9.1 – 9.2 find themselves craving the simple utility. Thankfully, in light of Apple’s iOS 9-exclusive self-signing Xcode 7 policies, we can make use of an unpublished app by installing it with our Apple ID – no developer account, jailbreak or special software required; just
Today, following last week’s public release of iOS 9.2, Apple seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 9.2.1 to those enrolled in the company’s official developer program. While it’s currently unknown which changes are introduced by iOS 9.2.1, considering it’s a .1 update, they’re likely minor. However, what does the firmware mean in relation to Jailbreaking? Let’s find out!
Welcome to the two hundredth and thirty-eighth episode of my series entitled BestTechInfo and Rumors! In today’s episode I discuss this week’s release of iOS 9.2, WatchOS 2.1, tvOS 9.1, OS 10.11.2, the iPhone 6S battery case and Apple’s SD to Lightning converter, as well as the next Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 9.2.
