We’ve always been able to downgrade to a recent iOS version by installing an IPSW file on an iPhone or iPad through iTunes for Mac and Windows, but that’s no longer possible in the latest iTunes 12.9 beta, distributed last week as part of the macOS Mojave 10.14.4 developer beta.
Maybe it was the new emoji that tempted you? Or maybe you just made a mistake? Whatever the reason, you’ve found yourself on iOS 9.1, but wish to go back to iOS 9.0.2—the last jailbreakable firmware that’s currently available for iOS 9. Fortunately, you still have time to downgrade back to iOS 9.0.2.
In this video tutorial, we’ll show you how easy it is to downgrade from iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.0.2. But act quickly, this tutorial certainly has an expiration date, which will occur when Apple closes the 9.0.2 signing window.
Apple just released iOS 9.0.2 for all eligible iOS devices. The update is another bug fix update that follows closely on the heels of iOS 9.0.1, which was just released last week. The update is available as an OTA update now. You can find the update by going to Settings → General → Software Update.
iOS 9 is now officially out, and it brings with it a whole slew of new features. If you own an eligible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can download an install iOS 9 right now.
In many cases, especially with the latest iPads, iOS 9 can make you feel like you have a brand new device. In this post, we’ll show you which devices are eligible to be updated, as well as how to update.
Ahead of next week’s September 16th’s iOS 9 public release, Apple has seeded the iOS 9 Golden Master seed. This release, baring any unforeseen circumstances, will contain the same code that ships to customers next week.
Apple also took the time to release the first public beta of iOS 9.1. Reports have stated that the newly announced iPad Pro will come with iOS 9.1 once it ships in November.
Both iOS 9 GM and iOS 9.1 beta 1 are now available for download via Apple’s Developer Center.
Apple just released iOS 8.4.1 to the public. If you’re jailbroken, it’s highly recommended that you stay away from this update. We’ll post an update once we have details of what the iOS 8.4.1 release contains, but rumors have swirled for weeks that it may fix the exploits used for the latest iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 jailbreak.
So far, we have not found any indication that this is so, but hold off just in case if you’re interested in jailbreaking. If you’re not interested in jailbreaking, feel free to update.
Apple just seeded iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 to members of its developer program. Seeing that this release is a minor version release, there’s a good chance that it contains bug fixes, and perhaps even a fix for the exploits used in the iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 jailbreaks.
While details are currently scarce about what the update contains—there are no release notes at this time—we’ll be sure to update you once we gather more info.
The iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 release comes in with a build number of 12H304, and is available for all devices capable of running iOS 8.4.
Wishing to downgrade (or upgrade) to iOS 8.3? If so, you’re too late, as Apple just stopped signing iOS 8.3.
As has been the trend lately, Apple tends to continue signing older firmware even after new firmware—such as last week’s iOS 8.4—has been out for a while. This time, a full week passed before Apple closed the doors on iOS 8.3.
