According to Tools4Hack the Pangu Team has demonstrated a iOS 8.3 jailbreak at the MOSEC security conference in Shanghai. The Japanese reporter is hopeful that we could see the team release a jailbreak once iOS 8.4 drops.
Just as Apple announced at its iPad & Mac event last Thursday, iOS 8.1 is now publicly available with new features including Apple Pay, iCloud Photo Library, and additional Continuity features. Apple Pay is available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users for making payments for purchases with the new iPhone rather than a physical credit card in supported retail stores and apps; iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 users will be able to use Apple Pay within supported apps as well. In addition to iOS 8.1, Apple also released version 7.0.1 for third-generation Apple TV boxes.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus needs new iOS 8 that is on the way as well. Apple just confirmed the next-gen operating system will arrive next week, on September 17th. It will be free as usual. The compartible device list includes every iPhone from the 4s on, every iPad starting with the iPad 2, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
Today a team of Chinese hackers have released an untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. The utility is called Pangu.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows users.
The team credits famous hacker i0n1c, who introduced the infoleak bug during his training. By the way i0n1c has said, "if pangu team releases a public jailbreak with vulnerabilities disclosed to them during my training I consider this in no way okay."
The evad3rs have released an updated evasi0n 7.0.5 that brings the ability to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5. The iOS 7.0.5 was released earlier this week for the some iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models (the GSM + CDMA editions).
