So, you’ve upgraded to iOS 8 and now you’re having reservations? Well, I’m sorry to tell you, yet you no more have the alternative of downgrading your device back to iOS 7. This saddening information pertains to you from developer Steven Troughton-Smith (via AppleInsider), that tweeted the details on Friday:
SLIT iOS 7
– Steve T-S (@ stroughtonsmith) September 26, 2014
Exactly what Troughton-Smith had actually observed is that Apple stopped authorizing iOS 7.1.2 firmware, which indicates that as soon as a compatible device has been updated to iOS 8, it can never ever be downgraded again.
Those that still have devices that are incompatible with iOS 8, such as the original iPad and also the iPhone 4, will certainly remain to have accessibility to the earlier firmware.
