It’s been more than 2 months since Apple killed the iOS 9.0.x jailbreak, and in that time we’ve seen the public release of iOS 9.1, 9.2, and a beta version of 9.2.1, with no update to the Pangu tool. So as you can imagine, we’ve received a lot of questions regarding the current status of the jailbreak. Here is what we know so far.
Not only is an iOS 9.2 jailbreak in the works, but it could be here sooner than you think. That all, according to 3K Assistant, a long-time TaiG jailbreak partner. 3K Assistant is the same name of the utility that we always recommend unchecking on TaiG jailbreaks, because it usually has links to pirated content and just seems shady overall.
According to a report by Stephen Chan, who’s reported on jailbreaking accurately in the past, 3K Assistant has announced that a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 is coming soon via the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
The just released iOS 9.2 brings with it something that iPhone users have been wanting for quite some time now: the ability to import photos directly from a USB source via Apple’s USB Camera Adapter. Data transfer is still going to operate at USB 2.0 speeds, but having the option to work on videos and photos shot on traditional cameras is a nice new perk for iPhone users.
Apple has officially released the public edition of iOS 9.2 for supported iPhones, iPads, and the iPod touch. The update brings several new bug fixes, Apple Music enhancements, and other improvements to all compatible iOS devices. iOS 9.2 is available as an OTA update, and should be shortly available when connecting to iTunes as well.
Following yesterday’s release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 beta 4, Apple today posted a fourth beta of the forthcoming iOS 9.2 software update for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
iOS 9.2 beta 4 (build 13C5075) is now available to members of the Apple Developer Program as an over-the-air update or through Apple’s portal for developers. The update is also available to public beta testers who are signed on the Apple Beta Software Program.
Apple has just seeded iOS 9.2 beta 3 to developers. The update is now available as an OTA update for developers running iOS 9.2 beta 2. If you’re not running iOS 9.2 beta 2, you will be able to download the full iOS update via the Apple Developer Member Center once Apple adds it.
This update comes exactly a week after the last beta update, iOS 9.2 beta 2. That update, provided new additions for developers using Safari View Controller and AT&T Wi-Fi calling.
The latest beta version of what would become the second major update to iOS 9, which was seeded to developers yesterday, enables Wi-Fi Calling through AT&T on your Mac, 9to5Mac discovered.
While Wi-Fi Calling allows you to place a phone call in an area with little or no cellular coverage, bringing AT&T Wi-Fi Calling to the Mac and other devices you own lets you make and receive phone calls on your Mac (or iPad or iPod touch, for that matter) without needing to be on the same network, or even in the same area, as your iPhone.
Apple has seeded its second release of the iOS 9.2 beta to developers for all eligible iOS devices. The update is available right now as an OTA update for devices running the previous beta, and is also available via Apple’s developer Member Center. iOS 9.2 beta 1 contained new features and fixes for Safari View Controller.
This latest beta, which comes with a build number of 13C5060d, comes with several bug fixes and changes, including edge swipe-to-dismiss for Safari View Controller. Check out the rest of this post for more important details from the change log.
