Pangu jailbreak is currently available for Windows only (update: Mac version of Pangu is available now). The team apparently seems to be working on Mac version a sits website says Mac version “Coming soon.” It is an untethered jailbreak compatible with iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1, and iOS 9.0.2.
As reported earlier, Apple has killed Pangu jailbreak with iOS 9.1 by patching two of the vulnerabilities that the jailbreak tool was using to gain the root access of the device. It means that you won’t be able to jailbreak iOS 9.1 with Pangu. Please also note that the latest iOS 9.2 beta is not jailbreak-able as well.
If you have already updated to iOS 9.1 and still want to jailbreak your device, you will have to downgrade iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.0.2 and re-jailbreak. Please note that downgrading back to iOS 9.0.2 is only possible as long as Apple is signing the 9.0.2 firmware. Once Apple stops signing it, you won’t be able to downgrade back and re-jailbreak.
