iOS 9.1 jailbreak is finally here! Instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 9.1 on iPad Pro, iPhone 6s/6, iPhone 6s Plus/6 Plus and more using the latest Pangu9 tool for both Mac and Windows are detailed below.
Those of you who are still rocking iOS 9.1 will be pretty happy today with Pangu jailbreak solution now arriving for the said firmware. As mentioned earlier, this jailbreak tool is available for both Windows and Mac. There’s a catch however; the tool supports 64-bit iOS devices only.
Pangu team released the jailbreak for iOS 9.1 devices only because they had a kernel bug which worked in iOS 9.1 and was patched by Apple in iOS 9.2 and over. It’s important to note that sinceApple is no longer signing iOS 9.1 firmware, if you are on a version above (iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, 9.3) or below (9.0.2) iOS 9.1 firmware, you can’t upgrade/downgrade to it.
This is also the first time a jailbreak has been made available for Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet, which was released with iOS 9.1 in late 2015.
