Apple has always tried to stay one step ahead of jailbreakers by patching vulnerabilities in iOS as soon as a jailbreak is released. Apple had patched the Pangu iOS 9 jailbreak in iOS 9.1, thus leaving the jailbreak team with no choice other than to look for more exploits. However, the wait for the next jailbreak has been a long one, probably because Pangu did not want to waste exploits by releasing an iOS 9.1 jailbreak [ext link], which would be patched in iOS 9.2. Pangu has played it smart and has been waiting for the perfect time to release the iOS 9.2 jailbreak [ext link].

iOS 9.2 has been released a couple of days ago by Apple, but a Pangu Jailbreak for this firmware version has still not been released. Those few lucky people who have stayed on iOS 9 have saved their jailbreak until the next one comes up, while those who updated accidentally or deliberately to iOS 9.1 or iOS 9.2 are now stuck until a jailbreak comes out. The only hope now is the Pangu team, and now that iOS 9.2 jailbreak is released, some rumors say that the Pangu 9.2 jailbreak might be coming soon.

In case you were wondering that Pangu went idle after giving us the iOS 9 jailbreak, you might have to reconsider your thoughts. Some people in the iOS community have reasons to believe that Pangu has already got the exploits in its pocket that is the gateway to iOS 9.2 jailbreak, while some people believe that the team has already readied an iOS 9.2 jailbreak. It is being said that Pangu could have given out the jailbreak when the iOS 9.2 betas were rolling out, but that would have given a chance to Apple to patch those vulnerabilities and void any possible jailbreaks. So Pangu waited until Apple outed iOS 9.2 publicly, after which the company cannot patch the iOS 9.2 jailbreak until it releases another iOS version specifically for that purpose as it did with iOS 8.4.1.
In case these beliefs and rumors have got some authenticity, then we guess the Pangu 9.2 [ext link] jailbreak might be released within a week or two. Though we must not forget that rumors are, after all, just rumors and Pangu hasn’t given out any official confirmation about the upcoming jailbreak. But then, the team is known for surprising us with sudden releases, and the iOS 9.2 will be one of the most awaited and most loved surprises of the year for the iOS community.
