Apple has released a fix for the iOS 8.3 update that addresses security vulnerability issues, making jailbreaks ineffectual, GottaBeMobile reports.
Although a jailbreak release date for the update has not been announced, many are saying it should be well on its way. The Apple iOS 8.3 jailbreak update for the iPhone is rumored to include new emojis and other features.
The jailbreak for the Apple iOS 8.2 update is “constrained by many factors” but is expected to be released soon, GottaBeMobile reports. The update was rumored to have a release date after March 27, following the 2015 Mobile Security Summit in Beijing.
However, developers did not make an announcement pertaining to jailbreaks. Jailbreak developer MuscleNerd has warned Apple users about the forthcoming iOS 8.2 jailbreak release date: “Jailbreakers stay away from today’s 8.2 update for now, or you will get burned,” he wrote on Twitter.
Apple hosted a launch program for its newest Apple Watch on March 9, where the company revealed the release date of the iOS 8.2 update.
Although the current iOS version has features preventing jailbreaking, the iOS 8.2 update is said to have capabilities for its own jailbreak.
Since there have been new betas released for the update, the company has yet to produce patches for those openings, Gotta Be Mobile reports.
The new Apple iOS 8.1.3 update features several issues revolving around Wi-Fi connectivity.
Most of these issues have affected iPad and iPhone users using the update.
