iOS users, tech geeks, and enthusiasts will likely have to extend their patience as they wait for the iOS 10.2.1 and iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool.

A report from Christian Today said that renowned hackers Pangu and TaiG are still keeping mum about whether or not they are already working on the tools. The silence, however, is being taken by jailbreakers with much hope that the tools will come sooner rather than later.

Tech website Redmond Pie, on the other hand, reported that the two groups, despite their apparent silence, may already be working on the jailbreak tools. The speculations were based on the history of Pangu and TaiG, who, in the past, have been noted for surprising everyone by coming out with a tool from out of the blue. Furthermore, the recent release of the Mach_Portal + Yalu iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak by famous hacker Luca Todesco is also another example that things will eventually fall into place, even at the most unexpected times.

There is, however, a caveat in the jailbreak waiting game, as users of the iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.3 will have to deal with Apple's new File System APFS, which could pose another challenge for Todesco. It can also be recalled that Apple experienced serious issues with the iOS 10.2.1, as the tech giant admitted that a "30% Bug" used to plague users a few months ago, according to  Forbes. The bug, as its name suggested, affected the smartphones wherein they will turn off as soon as the battery indicator hit the 30 percent mark.

"We're seeing a more than 80% reduction in iPhone 6S and over 70% reduction on iPhone 6 of devices unexpectedly shutting down. We also added the ability for the phone to restart without needing to connect to power, if a user still encounters an unexpected shutdown," said Apple in a statement, according to TechCrunch.

With things still up in the air, users can just hope and pray that the jailbreak tools will emerge in the soonest possible time.
