There’s been a lot of doom and gloom in the jailbreak community lately given the challenges associated with jailbreaking iOS & iPadOS 15. In fact, even Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar has been on record discussing how iOS & iPadOS 15.1.1 would likely be the last firmware they develop a jailbreak for because of how much more difficult Apple appears to be making things.
Google Project Zero security researcher Ned Williamson took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to share details on what appears to be a new kernel-level vulnerability proof-of-concept (PoC) for a recent version of iOS & iPadOS.
Just last Monday, Apple released iOS & iPadOS 15.5 to the general public with changes for Apple Cash and the Podcasts app, and as many would come to expect, this move also meant that Apple would stop signing the older iOS & iPadOS 15.4.1 in the near future.
Apple has released iOS 15.4.1, a bug-fix update that resolves iPhone battery drain while addressing issues with some Braille and MFi hearing devices.
