Apple stops signing iOS 13.6.1

iOS 13.6 What's new

Following the release of iOS 13.7 last week, Apple has now stopped signing iOS 13.6.1. This means that it is no longer possible to restore iPhone to iOS 13.6.1.

iOS 13.7 introduced just one big change ̵

1; Exposure Notification Express system that allows health authorities to roll out contact tracking in their region without having to spend weeks developing an app. Instead, they just need to fill out a configuration file with name, logo and other details, and then they will be able to offer contact tracking to the audience. A major advantage of this new system is that users automatically receive a notification when their local public health authority starts offering contact tracking using this method.

Given how important contact tracking is to stop the spread of the ongoing pandemic, it’s important that you update your iPhone to iOS 13.7. There is no jailbreak available for iOS 13.6.1 for iPhone XS or later devices, which should further make the decision to upgrade to iOS 13.7 a little easier for you. For iPhone X and older devices, the Checkra1n jailbreak has also been confirmed to work with iOS 13.7.

iOS 13.7 is probably the latest iOS 13 release from Apple as the company is now preparing to release iOS 14 to the public. Apple has an event scheduled for September 15 where it will reveal the release date of iOS 14 to the public.
