Apple fans all over the world tuned into the big press event of Apple last Sept. 7 to officially release the new Apple Watch Series 2 and iPhone 7. Aside from Apple's unboxing of its latest devices, the company also formally unveiled the last and full version of the iOS 10. With the new operating system expected to roll out in Apple smartphones in the coming days, users speculate that a functional jailbreak tool for the iOS 10 will soon be released.

Recently, Apple has continued with its crackdown on the jailbreak community and the firm just released the iOS 9.3.5 update. This means that with the rollout, users will no longer manage to upgrade or downgrade to the operating system, and following the official update, jailbreakers will find that the 9.3.5 jailbreak has been rendered useless.

Pangu is the go-to name when it comes to jailbreak tools, and with the current reports, Pangu Team may be disregarding their 9.3.5 jailbreak tool in order to focus on iOS 10 improvements.

It is reported that the main reason why Pangu has chosen to end its work on the iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak is as a result of the upcoming operating system's specs, which will include a smarter Siri, a new and improved lock screen and a more playful and user-friendly iMessage app.

The iOS 10 is reported to be making its debut next week, which means that Pangu will have only have a few days to work on an iOS 10 jailbreak if ever they are planning to make the tool.

One of the signs that Pangu can develop a working jailbreak tool for the iOS 10 is the demonstration of iOS 10 beta version's jailbreaking.

iDownload Blog reported that Luca Todesco, a known Italian hacker and security researcher, demonstrated his latest jailbreak tool he termed as "valuX," which proved that the last beta version for the iOS 10 can be jailbroken.

Todesco's success in attempting to jailbreak a beta version of the iOS 10 is not the first time, as other hackers and groups have tried to jailbreak the OS version's security measures and also customize its settings.

During the Mobile Security Conference in Shanghai last July, Pangu, a China-based hacker group succeeded in jailbreaking the beta 1 version of the iOS 10. Pangu is also the group responsible for the jailbreaking attempts on the iOS 8 and 9 versions. And recently, the group was successful in developing the jailbreak tools for the iOS 9.3.3 and 9.3.4, MacWorld reported.

Unfortunately, Pangu's recent jailbreak efforts were rendered useless as Apple was very quick to patch their iOS versions. As at now, there are no reports yet if Pangu will create a jailbreak tool for the latest iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak version. iOS 9.3.5 is Apple's answer to the iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak.

According to IT PRO, it is rumored that instead of the iOS 9.3.5, Pangu will focus on the iOS 10 jailbreak. It is not yet clear if Pangu can avail a working jailbreak tool shortly after the expected release of the iOS 10 on Sept. 13.

Existing devices will get the iOS 10 update on Sept. 13, and it is said to be the biggest Apple update to the Cupertino-based company's mobile operating system so far.

With the iOS 10 update, users will find that Siri has been rebuilt to improve image searches, write text messages and transcribe voicemails.
