Apple released iOS 9 on September 16th. It includes new features such as Proactive Assistant, transit directions in Maps, enhanced multitasking features for the iPad, all-new News app, revamped Notes app, new Low Power mode and lots more.
You can jailbreak iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 using Pangu Jailbreak. It supports all iOS 9 compatible devices.
The jailbreak tool is currently available for Windows only, but an OS X version will likely be available for Mac users in the future.
Pangu is compatible with all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models on iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2:
- iPhone 4S, 5/5c/5s, 6/6 Plus, 6s/6s Plus
- iPad 2/3/4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2/3/4
- iPod touch (fifth and sixth generations)
Jailbreaking enables iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users to install unapproved third-party apps, tweaks, mods, custom themes, utilities and other content — called “packages” — from Cydia, an unofficial App Store for jailbroken devices.
Jailbreaking has been around since the early days of iPhone OS 1.0, years before the software was renamed iOS, allowing users to have features such as custom wallpapers, quick reply and Notification Center widgets long before Apple made those official.
As noted by iPhone Hacks, Cydia Substrate, an underlying framework for jailbreak tweaks, now supports iOS 9. Cydia developers will be required to update their jailbreak tweaks for compatibility with iOS 9 or later. The blog has shared a running list of iOS 9 compatible jailbreak tweaks.
