Apple To No Longer Support Downgrades From iOS 14

Apple will no longer sign iOS 13.7 and will block every downgrade from iOS 14, following the release of the latter last week after almost three months of the beta period. Users who have already updated their devices to iOS 14 will not be able to downgrade to any iOS 13 builds.

The update flaunts a major redesign to the Homescreen with various widgets, App Library, and other new features. Almost 30% of Apple users have already upgraded to iOS 14, which is 10% more than the number of people who have upgraded to iOS 13 in the same period last year.

Users with jailbroken devices have a tendency to revert back to older iOS builds. Moreover, the team behind checkra1n jailbreak has announced that their tool will be compatible with iOS 14 as well but, owing to Apple’s new security protocols, it would be a tougher game on newer devices like iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

Downgrading to older versions of iOS is useful for those iPhone or iPad users who struggle with significant bugs after upgrading to the latest version of iOS. Similarly, if you’re experiencing any trouble with iOS 14, unfortunately, you’ll now have to wait until a future update rather than simply downgrading to iOS 13, thanks to Apple.

The only possible downgrade left for now would be from iOS 14.2 beta to iOS 14.0.
