It looks like Apple will thwart anew the possibility of Team Pangu releasing a jailbreak for iOS 10.3 and 10.3.1 as the tech giant started seeding beta 1 of version 10.3.3, strongly indicating the firmware will become official soon packed with bug fixes and security improvements. Will iOS 10.3.3 prove another jailbreak killer?

Initially, the release is intended for registered developers only but 9to5Mac said a public beta is likely to follow soon. There are no earth-shaking changes that the firmware will deliver as anything huge on iOS jump is likely reserved for the next step up - the iOS 11 that Apple is expected to reveal on June 5 or at the start of the WWDC 2017.

But it did not escape notice that the first beta of iOS 10.3.3 was seeded just 24 hours after 10.3.2 was made official. As noted by iDownloadBlog.com in a report, it piques curiosity that the beta release happened too soon after the rollout of 10.3.2 and a few weeks before iOS 11 is finally known.

It's no secret that Apple will not want a jailbreak version of iOS 10 to actually materialize, which has to be the best explanation why the update mode for the current iOS series is being delivered at a dizzying pace. Obviously, Apple's mission is to outrace hackers' attempt of cracking open the mobile OS and discourage the possibility of any jailbreak.

And the company has been successful so far. To date, the only working jailbreak for iOS 10 is Luca Todesco's Yalu JB tool that for many is mostly unusable. The solution remains in beta status and there's no telling if a finalized version will be on the way.

Pangu from China, however, offered some hope the group demoed a jailbroken iPhone on iOS 10.3. The Shanghai presentation sparked rumors that a public jailbreak release is happening soon with support for firmware versions 10.3 and 10.3.1 plus the likelihood that most 64-bit iPhones and iPads will be covered.

Jailbreak fans though will need to wait as Pangu will need to make sure the exploits they were working still exists following the iOS 10.3.2 deployment. The promise was - when 10.3.2 is released the Pangu jailbreak will follow shortly.

But unsurprisingly, Apple again beat Team Pangu to the race, casting doubt on the supposed promise by the hacking group that a better or more usable iOS 10.3 jailbreaking solution is touching down soon. Will it be another waiting in vain for many jailbreak fans?
