Apple will not like
While the iPhone 7 has just come out, the device has been jailbroken. The jailbreak allows iPhone to access applications and advanced settings often blocked by the system. The last update of the operating system for iPhone, iOS 10, will therefore not last long.

The security specialist Luca Tedesco has indeed posted a picture on twitter, showing an iPhone 7 running iOS 10.0.1 rotating the Cydia application. The Cydia App allows you to install unapproved pirated applications by Apple … but also with the risk of installing malware. Lucas Tedesco is not his first feat of arms. The hacker has built a solid reputation in the scene of the jailbreak for several years. But as is often the case with a freshly made jailbreak, the method has not been shared. Hackers avoid indeed share their findings before knowing enough exploitable vulnerabilities. Because the apple is very responsive in this area. Each shared jailbreak method systematically results in a quick update to correct the faults.

Luca Tedesco was content to provide some clues. According to the iPhone 7 will use a compressed algorithm to protect the kernel. That may be enough to inspire his cronies hackers. The famous Pangu Team, specializing in the jailbreak announced recently also working on iOS 10 jailbreak of the iPhone 7 could be made available in the coming days.
If this is the case is to be expected quickly Apple to react and deploy a new update iOS 10. At least we know now that the jailbreak of the iPhone 7 is possible.
