Apple released their latest update, a minor update with a few performance enhancements, bug fixes and the addition of the Apple File System, the new way of storing files. iOS 10.3.1 download [ext link] is available for download now and you can get all the information you need plus full guides on how to update in the linked article. Be aware that, if you do update, you are limited for time in which to downgrade to iOS 10.3 if you want to as Apple will soon stop signing the older firmware. In the meantime, whether there is an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak [ext link] is the main topic of conversation and, at this moment, we can advise that there isn’t one.

To be fair, we haven’t seen many jailbreaks for iOS 10, not as many as we have gotten used to in the past and those that we have seen haven’t been all that we expected. Luca Todesco, perhaps in recognition of the fact that he could do it and no other team had stepped forward, finally released Yalu Jailbreak [ext link] for iOS 10.1, subsequently updating it to support iOS 10.2. However, apart from the fact that he told us iOS 10 was going to be a touch but in terms of jailbreaking, he has now announced that he is stepping back from public jailbreaks, leaving us uncertain as to where the next utility will come from.

Yalu Jailbreak was a welcome jailbreak when it was released but it was limited in who could use it. Only those with the newer 64-bit devices were eligible and that did not include the latest iPhone 7 models. Aside from that, it had to be side-loaded using Cydia Impactor and, because it was a semi-untethered jailbreak, it had to be reactivated every single time the iOS device was rebooted. All of that cut a certain percentage of users out of the jailbreak equation, leaving them on earlier utilities or without one at all.

In terms of an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, we do still have three other teams to consider – Taig, Pangu, and PP. Although we have had no contact with any of these teams since iOS 10 was released, it doesn’t mean that they won’t come through for us, especially now that Todesco is out of the picture. For now, don’t update unless you have to and preserve your current jailbreak for as long as you can.
