iOS 10.3 has been released and it is packed with features and security updates as well as the usual bug fixes. Apple is continuing their rapid release cycle, not just to keep iOS 10 running as smooth as possible but also as an attempt to thwart the jailbreak teams. The more updates there are, the more chance there is of vital vulnerabilities being patched, leaving jailbreakers with little to work on and that may be why we have seen a considerable slow-down in the release of usable jailbreak utilities this time around.
Can iOS 10.3 Be Jailbroken ?
Not yet, no. So far with iOS 10, we have seen just one usable jailbreak and that came from the unlikeliest of places. Luca Todesco is an Italian hacker known for exposing jailbreaks but not sharing them with the public. However, this time, he has done just that by releasing Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10-10.2. With any luck, we will soon see an update to the utility to support iOS 10.3.
PP Jailbreak team also have a jailbreak for iOS 10.2 in beta, called PP Helper and built in conjunction with Pangu. You can find all the information you need about PPHelper at the given link including download links and jailbreak guides. Their popular jailbreak for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 has also been updated to include support up to iOS 9.3.5. For Yalu jailbreak, if you choose not to update to iOS 10.3 Download, you can find the same information in the linked articles below:

And a lot more besides. There is here for the Cydia app and tweak developers to get their teeth into as soon as an iOS 10.3 Jailbreak is released but, for now, if you are using the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 to iOS 10.2 or the PPHelper Jailbreak for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.5, hang on to it and avoid updating to iOS 10.3 until we can give you some good news.
