ios 9 jailbreak

Earlier this month the team known as Pangu released a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 9. There was only one catch, you needed a Windows-powered computer to make it work. Now the group is back with a Mac version as well.

You can grab the jailbreak now on your Mac and get started, though you’ll want to backup your iPhone first just to be safe. The process should be quick and simple. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to tweak your smartphone beyond what Apple officially allows.

Unfortunately, the jailbreak doesn’t cover iOS 9.1, which Apple released last week. The update added a ton of new Emoji, Apple Pencil support for the iPad Pro and more. If you haven’t upgraded yet, you should still be able to jailbreak your phone without any trouble.

Jailbreaking your iPhone gives you access to Cydia, an unofficial app store that’s not approved or managed by Apple. It includes tweaks that can give you 3D Touch capabilities on older iPhones and even iPad-style Split View on your smartphone.
