iOS 11 download has finally been launched on the first day of WWDC 2017 and the developers are now working on beta 1, the start of a long few months of beta testing to get the new firmware shipshape for public release in September. With any luck, this should mean fewer iOS 10 updates and that could spell good news for the jailbreak community. Before we delve into that, let’s look at what iOS 11 is bringing to the table:
iOS 11 Features :
iOS 11 is not your usual run of the mill update. Instead, Apple has big changes in store for all of us, including:
- A brand-new look to the iOS app store for the first time in its history
- New features for Siri, including translation and machine learning
- New features for Apple Maps, including indoor mapping
- iPhone and iPad get a new File app, allowing for easier browsing of files
- Photo and Camera apps get a few new features, the biggest being file compression techniques
- Lock screen, Control Center and Notification Center are all updated
- Apple Pay is improved with P2P iMessage integration
- And lots more
See the article below for all the details on the new changes in iOS 11.
iOS 10 Jailbreak Update :
As most people know, Yalu Jailbreak is the only jailbreak utility for iOS 10 and it will only jailbreak iOS 10.2 or lower. Luca Todesco is the person to thank for the jailbreak but he has made it clear that an update is not in the works, especially as he has now moved away from public iOS security work. Yalu is, like the last few jailbreaks before it, limited to a certain group of users and is also semi untethered. It seems that this is the way forward for jailbreaks right now as it looks like Apple s succeeding, if not in stopping jailbreaking altogether then at least in making it harder.
As far as iOS 11 is concerned, given that it has only just gone into beta and is not due for release until September, don’t expect any movement on the jailbreak front there. Quite apart from the fact that beta jailbreaks are incredibly unstable, most of the developers will be taking the time out to focus on whether an iOS 11 jailbreak is possible for the future, not now.
If you do have a jailbreak, hang on to it and don’t update until we give you the go ahead to do so. To make sure you get all the latest news and updates on the iOS 11 jailbreak, follow us on Facebook.
