Step 1: Backup all your data, photos, videos and files with whichever method you prefer. Best with iTunes and iCloud syncing.
Step 2: Launch iTunes on your PC or Mac computer. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer.

Step 7: Wait for your device to reboot. Eventually, it will reboot automatically. Once restarted, Pangu will ask you to turn on Airplane mode again. Do so and the jailbreak process will continue automatically.
Step 8: Next, Pangu9 will ask you to run Pangu app on your device. Do so and wait for the remaining jailbreak to finish. Once done, Pangu9 will show a jailbreak completed status message. You can then find Cydia on your device on your home screen. That’s all for it!
Update 1: iOS 9.3 has just been released. Do not update to iOS 9.3 if you are the lucky one who are still using iOS 9.1 as there is currently no jailbreak available for iOS 9.3 yet.
