Jailbreak for iOS 9.3 Beta 1 surfaced online after a prominent iOS hacker/developer shared a video on Tuesday featuring screenshots of Cydia running on iOS 9.3. The new jailbreak closely follows Apple's official release of iOS 9.3 Beta for developers.
The proof of iOS 9.3 Beta 1 jailbreak comes from Luca Todesco, the same hacker who recently shared a screenshot of a jailbroken iPhone 6 running on iOS 9.2.1. Todesco (@qwertyuiop) had made it clear that a public release for the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak was not in the offing, which appears to be case for iOS 9.3 as well.
Todesco's tweet about iOS 9.3 Beta 1 Jailbreak consists of a video which shows new features of iOS 9.3, including the new Night Shift mode that uses the device's clock and geo-location to adjust the gamma values of the screen.

Jailbreaking users have been waiting a long time for the new jailbroken software, but the space has been dormant for quite some time now. The last an iOS jailbreak was publicly released was by Pangu on Apple's iOS 9 software. But the iPhone-maker has since rolled out two major updates — iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 — and it is now testing iOS 9.3.
There have been several rumours about the jailbreak communities, such as TaiG and Pangu working on a new jailbreak. But nothing has come to fruition.
Apple currently has two iOS software in Beta — iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3 — and there is no strong indication on a jailbreak release.
