Even before the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak is finalized, it looks like iOS 10.2 will be getting a jailbreak as well

iOS hacker Luca Todesco has been working on finalizing the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak for the past two weeks, and now he has promised added support for iOS 10.2 as well.
Since Luca is a single person working on developing a jailbreak for numerous devices, there are still a lot of bugs to be worked out. Numerous betas have been released and quite a few users have even managed to get their jailbreak stable using the beta tools released by the veteran iOS developer.
Now, the developer has announced that in addition to fixing the bugs in the current version of the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak, he will add support for iOS 10.2 with the next version of the Yalu jailbreak. Apple had stopped signing iOS 10.1.1 before the release of the jailbreak and a lot of people had updated their devices to iOS 10.2 before the announcement of the jailbreak. Luca Todesco had this to tweet about the status of the jailbreak:
"My fix for the issues in the 10.1 jailbreak will be to add support to 10.2. It will however not work on iPhone 7 on 10.2, just 10 and 10.1."
Now that we know an iOS 10.2 jailbreak may be coming, we recommend that you stay on the firmware and wait patiently for the release of the jailbreak. Apple may soon release iOS 10.2.1 and the iOS 10.3 beta is also set for release in a few days, so hold off on updating to either of those firmwares.
So what firmware is your iOS device currently on and is it jailbroken? Please let us know in the comments below.
