Since the full version of the iOS 10 rolled out earlier in September, many iPad and iPhone users have been patiently waiting for a working software crack. Apple has already released a few minor and a major update for the iOS 10, and still, known mobile hackers have not yet given any updates regarding their iOS 10 jailbreak tools. However, the rumors are rife that the Chinese mobile hacker group Pangu will once again take the lead to release the first ever jailbreak software for the latest iOS version.

As reported by Neurogadget, it is being speculated that Pangu is already nearing the completion of their iOS 10 jailbreak tool. The release date of the iOS 10 crack is not yet specified, although the rumors are rife that the first ever iOS 10 jailbreak to become available very soon. If this is true, then the fans will soon be able to personalize the settings of their iOS devices without the operating system forbidding them from doing so.

If anything, the iOS 10 jailbreak is expected to be available this December. This is also expected to be the same month when Apple will release the full version of the iOS 10.2 update. This may pose a problem for Pangu as the iOS 10.2 update will affect their jailbreak tool. Thus, those users who will update their devices to the iOS 10.2 version will not be able to use Pangu's iOS 10 crack.

Still, Pangu is believed to have figured out a way to counter Apple's efforts to make the iOS 10 unbreakable. According to Game N Guide, Pangu's current strategy is to wait for the major update of the iOS 10, and shortly after its release, Pangu will release their own jailbreak tool. That way, Apple will not be able to adjust the current iOS 10 version right away.

Earlier this year, Pangu has already presented a demo of the actual iOS 10 beta jailbreaking, showing to the public that Apple's latest iOS version is still susceptible to hacking.
