  • Apple Releases iOS 9.2 to the Public


    On Tuesday, Apple has released iOS 9.2 to the public for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, a somewhat major software update for its mobile devices. The update is available via iTunes and via the Software Update function in the Settings application.

    The update, as Apple notes, adds improvements to Mobile Safari, iBooks, Music, and other applications, and includes a variety of bug fixes and improvements in addition to support for additional Apple accessories that the company released today.

      Not "some millionaire," but a company that paid out a million dollars for the browser-based exploit. Now, of course they aren't going to release it to the public, but if 9.1 and whatever beta build of 9.2 was JailbreakMe-style vulnerable, I'm sure a good old-fashioned Pangu-or Taig-style jailbreak is feasible.

      I second this. It happened. But that was only one exploit. There are others and I'm sure they're being worked. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a jailbreak for Christmas. It's happened before!

      I haven't read any articles on this. Other than selling a jailbreak they create with the exploit to make a profit are there other reasons why a company might purchase the exploit?

      I'm sure there could be several reasons. I'd imagine that trying to sell a jailbreak would bring the wrath of Apple down upon them, so I would think that instead of making a jailbreak, selling the exploits to Apple instead would be more in their interest.

      Even if they sell it for twice the amount, $2 million is less than chump change for Apple. The question is whether Apple would be willing. Do they think they lose that much money from jailbreaking? Would they lose a hardcore fanbase?

      In any case, it will be interesting to see what happens, especially if a separate jailbreak for 9.2 comes out.

      This is a great performance update. I'm in love with the smooth animations in the App Switcher, and I think scrolling and other animations that weren't necessarily choppy before have been improved as well.

      I almost want to update to 9.2 and lose my jailbreak for the stability. Almost. Here's hoping jailbreak comes soon.

      That's exactly why. They do this and sell it to the government. Wish I'd saved the article.

      It basically said the exploit is worth way more than a mil so they make plenty of $$$.

      Pangu and Taig jailbreak teams have been ultra aggressive in their approach. Love the rate at which jailbreaks are released. Just hope they not burning through every available exploit.

      How is it that 'hackers' consistently find ways to JB? Since 2007? Earlier?
