iOS 10 firmware has recently been released to the public, followed very closely by the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and already both the next generation of smartphone and the latest firmware have proven to be smash hits. All that we are waiting for is a iOS 10 jailbreak [ext link] to compliment them and that may not be as far away as we think. It used to be that we would have to wait months for a jailbreak after the new firmware was released but in recent years we have been seeing them much sooner, within weeks instead of months.

Within a couple of days of iOS 10 download [ext link] being released, followed very closely by an update to iOS 10.0.1, Luca Todesco came through with proof of a jailbreak. First, we had the iPad jailbroken on iOS 10 and now we have a photo of Cydia for iOS 10.0.1 [image below] running on a brand new black iPhone 7. There are going to be the usual doubters, people who claim that a photo can easily be faked and that, until we get the video proof of Cydia iOS 10.0.1, we should ignore this. However, Luca Todesco has considerable experience in hacking and developing for the iOS firmware and has proven himself time and time again, and that alone is sufficient for us to say that this is the real thing, that this genuinely is Cydia running on iOS 10.0.1. If you want to see the photo for yourselves, head over to Twitter and pull up Todesco’s Twitter account, under the handle of @qwertyoruiopz [ext link] .

Of course, as we have come to expect with Todesco, please don’t get too excite and think that a jailbreak is imminent. Despite being able to prove his skills as finding and exploiting loopholes in the iOS he only does it as part of his own research into mobile security and will never release these jailbreaks to the public, preferring to keep them for his own private use and for research purposes. However, he has given us hope for a jailbreak and, whether they work with Todesco or alone, we can say that Taig and Pangu will definitely be working on getting Cydia on iOS 10.0.1 as soon as possible. It isn’t a five-minute job and they will want to make sure that any jailbreak runs on the widest range of current iOS devices as possible.
