Recently, Apple has been in the limelight for its grand launch of iOS 9. The fresh out the box operating system has been enhanced with multiple application modifications and facilities. There have been certain other product launches by the brand such as iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, an innovative Apple TV and a stylus for the iPad Pro. The company has also announced that the iOS 9 will be made available to all iOS running products from 16th September 2015. There is a provision to upgrade the products through wireless or by the help of iTunes software. According to another claim by the brand is that it has patched the latest version of Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1. This directly challenges Jailbreak communities to create the jailbreak for iOS 9.
Jailbreak is essentially used for removing the restriction of application installations in Apple products. Usually before the installation of an application the system checks its compatibility with the iOS Developer Program License Agreement. The apps may be blocked due to safety or security issues or due to unpredictable nature which does not comply with the system. Jail breaking allows the download and installation of such applications which may include customization apps. Previously after the launch of the iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak by TaiG, Pangu planned the same. But the release was shelved due to launch of iOS 9. However the community did demonstrate the iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak with the help of iPhone 6 Plus at an event. On one side, Apple standing against jailbreak, has made clear that iOS 9 will be impossible to jailbreak. The TaiG community on the other side has made the claim that it is possible. But amidst all these claims, certain facts have come up regarding the jailbreak of iOS 9. Currently a malware, KeyRaider, is reported to affect jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. This malware steals an Apple ID and sends it to unidentified hackers.
