Chinese hacker Min Zheng aka @SparkZheng has published a YouTube video which demos a jailbreak for iOS 9.2.1 called Flying JB. The demo shows ‘Flying JB’ app successfully jailbreaking iPhone 5c running iOS 9.2.1. It also installs an unsigned Mobile Terminal app during the jailbreak process, which gives you the ability to run any command as root.
Apple will announce its big iOS 10 upgrade at WWDC next month, and it will rollout to all later this fall — but iOS 9 is determined to go out with a bang. The software is now installed on 84 percent of compatible devices.
Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.2.1 — its last iOS 9.2 update — preventing users from downgrading from iOS 9.3 and above. The move comes less than three weeks after Apple made its first iOS 9.3 update available to the public.

iOS 9’s adoption figure has risen again ahead of the public rollout of iOS 9.3, with 79 percent of compatible devices now running a version of Apple’s latest software. That figure is expected to rise again next week when Apple rolls out new features like Night Shift mode.
iOS 9 might seem pretty fast and responsive to you, but did you know it can be even faster? If you disable system animations using this neat trick — which requires no jailbreak — you get apps that open and close so fast you won’t have time to lift your finger from the screen.
In a new speed test that compares iOS 5 with iOS 9 and every major release in between, we get confirmation that older firmwares are faster on aging hardware.
