As you may very well be aware, iOS 10 isn’t the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. That distinction goes to iOS 11, with version 11.3 being the current stable version. Apple’s iOS 10 hasn’t been updated since version 10.3.3 was released in July 2017. So what’s this then about a jailbreak in April 2018?
The answer is: we do not know. Of course, there are jailbreaks for iOS 10 from Meridian, G0blin, H3lix, Saigon, and Yalu. It can be quite confusing to choose one of the five, but equally confusing is a rumored new one for April.
What is known
Recently, Apple sent the first beta for the upcoming iOS 11.4 update to developers. This comes hot on the heels of the iOS 11.3 update that introduced a host of new features, such as Battery Health, Business Chat in Messages, and Health Records, among others.
With iOS 11.4 still in beta version, it will take a while before this gets released to the wider public. Plus, Apple has just released version 11.3 so that will keep people occupied for a while.
iOS 10 jailbreaks
As mentioned, there are five jailbreak versions available. What you end of choosing depends on the iOS version you have. Here’s a brief look into each iOS 10 jailbreak:
- Meridian – a semi-tethered jailbreak for iOS 10.3.x. It works for 64-bit iOS devices.
- G0blin – like Meridian, this too is a semi-tethered jailbreak for iOS 10.3.x. It can be on lower iOS 10 versions.
- H3lix – this, again, is a semi-tethered iOS 10.x jailbreak. It can support iOS 10.3.3 – iOS 10 but only 32-bit devices.
- Saigon – another semi-tethered jailbreak, but this time for iOS 10.2.1 and with support for 64-bit devices.
- Yalu – this is the first jailbreak released for iOS 10 and like the rest is semi-tethered and supports 64-bit devices.
While iOS 10 is a serviceable OS, upgrading your OS to the higher version provides more security and features. If you’re still undecided, a comparison between the two might help.
