Buyers are already waiting for the iPhone 6 jailbreak release and the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are not even on store shelves.
Shortly after Apple announced the iPhone 6 users took to twitter to ask how to jailbreak the iPhone 6 and if there is an iOS 8 jailbreak release yet, but the answers are disappointing for anyone that is eager to use the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus jailbreak.
Over the past year iPhone jailbreak teams delivered new ways to jailbreak the iPhone 5s and multiple iOS 7 jailbreaks, but there is more drama and competition in the jailbreak arena than we’ve seen in a while.
Couple that with a new Apple A8 chip and NFC support and Apple Pay that leads to the potential for a tougher iPhone 6 jailbreak.
Although there was talk of a reverse engineered iOS 8 jailbreak, there is little new information about the iPhone 6 jailbreak release that we can share. After following the jailbreak community closely for several years there are definitely some things users can expect from the iOS 8 and iPhone 6 jailbreak release.
No Fast iPhone 6 Jailbreak Release
With a new processor, payments and a new version of iOS you shouldn’t expect an iPhone 6 jailbreak release anytime soon. There are already some potential buyers trying to decide if it is worth buying the new iPhone now and giving up their jailbreak.
iPhone 6 won’t be of any use to me until an iOS 8 jailbreak is available.

It’s possible that we’ll see a similar fast iOS 8 and iPhone 6 jailbreak release date if the Evad3rs or Pangu are able to crack through the security, but a release in the next month or two would be a surprise.
Apple already promised an iOS 8 update in October to enable Apple Pay. Although not confirmed it is likely iOS 8.0.1. if you want to get in on the iPhone 6 jailbreak you may want to hold off on installing the first iOS 8 update in case it closes a security hole. When the release is closer you can look for confirmation from a source like MuscleNerd to see if it is OK to install a new iOS 8 update on the iPhone 6.
iOS 8 and iPhone 6 Jailbreak Teases
Every year someone with talent shows a screenshot or video with early progress towards a jailbreak. We expect to se legitimate iPhone 6 jailbreak teasers and boasts from someone with a history of working on a successful jailbreak.
Lots of Fake iPhone 6 Jailbreaks
You can always count on fake iOS 8 jailbreaks and fake iPhone 6 jailbreak tools to tempt users into filling out surveys or asking for donations. We saw this countless times with iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s, and the only surprise is that there aren’t that many fakes yet.
Don’t pay money for an iPhone 6 jailbreak or fill out surveys for an iOS 8 jailbreak unless you are making a donation to a recognized legitimate jailbreak.
iPhone 6 Jailbreak Drama
In the run up to an iPhone 6 jailbreak release expect some drama between competing teams. If you follow the talented jailbreak team members on Twitter you’ll see a decent amount of drama between various factions. The best bet for the average user waiting for the iPhone 6 jailbreak release is to keep the Twitter searching to a minimum.
Don’t pester known jailbreak team members with questions about the iOS 8 and iPhone 6 jailbreak release over and over, and certainly don’t tweet angrily at them while they work on something that they give away.
iOS 8 & iPhone 6 Jailbreak Release Dates
Although there is a chance that we could see an iOS 8 jailbreak release date arrive before the iPhone 6 jailbreak release it is likely that both will arrive at the same time so that Apple can’t patch security holes and prevent the other jailbreak.
