By Anthony Bouchard on Dec 21, 2016

Your iPhone and/or iPad can perform over the air (OTA) software updates automatically during the night while you’re sleeping, so long as it’s connected to a power source and you’ve given it permission first.

Apple stops signing iOS 10.1.1

By Anthony Bouchard on Dec 20, 2016

Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.1 and 10.1.1 on Tuesday in a move that’s sure to choke the jailbreak community a little bit further. It’s typical of Apple to follow this kind of behavior after a new firmware release, so it’s not surprising this would happen as iOS 10.2 was released just over a week ago.

With the firmware no longer being signed, downgrades to iOS 10.1.1 are currently no longer possible, so if you’ve upgraded to iOS 10.2 recently or need to do a fresh restore of iOS 10.1.1 in iTunes, then you’re out of luck. Read More

iOS 9 downgrades no longer possible as Apple stops signing iOS 9.3.5

By Anthony Bouchard on Oct 20, 2016

On Tuesday, Apple pulled the plug on signing iOS 9.3.5 for its entire iOS device lineup, and since it was the last iOS 9 release since iOS 10’s launch last month, that means you can’t downgrade your firmware anymore.

It’s worth also mentioning that the signing process was also killed for iOS 10.0.1, which means anyone who tries to restore their device(s) in iTunes will be forced to install iOS 10.0.2 or later (10.0.3 is only for iPhone 7 & 7 Plus). Read More
