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!
iOS 9.2.1 Features and More
Starting with the new iOS 9.2.1 firmware first, the latest beta is currently available exclusively through Apple’s developer portal, considering this is the first beta, it’s not accessible as an OTA update.
As far as Jailbreaking is concerned, remember, iOS 9.1 closed two primary exploits utilized by Pangu in their iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak and last week’s iOS 9.2 patched an additional three exploits. So how does iOS 9.2.1 play into the fray?
Jailbreaking And iOS 9.2.1
Essentially, there are two possible scenarios: 1) TaiG or Pangu could wait for iOS 9.2.1 to go public before releasing their Jailbreak or 2) like with the iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak, the developers may rush a utility to support iOS 9.2 if the new 9.2.1 beta closes exploits said developers intend on utilizing. Regardless of which firmware they eventually target, Jailbreak developers will need to analyze the latest iOS 9.2.1 release, which will certainly delay progress in general.
As always, additional information will certainly present itself as we move forward into iOS 9.2 and 9.2.1’s beta lifecycle.
