Apple has released the iOS 10.3.1 download for all users. This is just a minor update but there are a couple of important fixes that will mean some users must update, particularly those on the iPhone 5 and 5C, two devices that were hit with problems on iOS 10.3. If you haven’t updated to iOS 10.3.1 and you either want to or need to, take a look at the article below for more information .

So, will there be an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak ? Right now, no there won’t. With such a new update, the jailbreak teams will need to take some time to study it and see what is there that they can work with. Secondly, it is only a minor update and, with jailbreaks getting harder to come by, the teams may decide to wait until a major release before they do anything.
Yalu Jailbreak is available for those on iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.2 and it comes to us from the Italian developer, Luca Todesco, the iOS security researcher from Italy. He is the only developer to come up with a utility for us, with the other teams being highly conspicuous by their absence.

However, Yalu is not a jailbreak that everyone can use. For starters, if you still use an older 32-bit device, you can’t use Yalu as it is not supported. In fact, not all 64-bit devices are supported as those with an iPhone 7 model have discovered. All of this just proves that, as Todesco did tell us several times, iOS 10 is a much harder firmware to jailbreak, thanks to the constant onslaught of updates from Apple and their new security features.
That doesn’t mean that we will not see any more jailbreaks in the future, just that they may be further apart. Jailbreak developers don’t like losing and, if there is a way to produce a jailbreak, they will find it. Someone, somewhere, will manage to provide us with an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, even if it is a limited one. To be fair, with the largest percentage of iOS devices being the newer ones now, the likelihood is all future jailbreaks will concentrate on these rather than on all devices so this is something we must get used to.
