He posted a photo of an iPhone 7 with iOS installed and running Cydia. This makes him the first person to showcase a functioning jailbreak on Apple‘s new iPhone 7 devices. He also happened to be the one who showed off his a jailbroken iPad running iOS 10. Yet again, he decided to tweet a screenshot with the tagline ‘obligatory Cydia screenshot’.
