Apple stops signing iOS 13.7, downgrading from iOS 14 is no longer possible




Apple iOS 14

Following the release of iOS 14 last week, Apple has stopped signing iOS 13.7, which means that it is no longer possible for iPhone or iPad users to downgrade the device back to iOS 1

3 now. This time, Apple stopped signing an earlier version of iOS relatively quickly compared to the usual time frame of around two weeks.

While iOS 14 comes with a number of new features and improvements, it also has a number of flaws. Apple has so far only released iOS 14.2 beta, without any new public development yet to fix bugs. Usually users end up downgrading back to an older version of iOS if they find the latest version for buggy, but with iOS 13.7 no longer signed, this is no longer possible.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 owners might also have downgraded back to iOS 13.7, as it was possible to jailbreak it using Checkra1n. While Checkra1n is based on a low-level bootroom utilization, which means that it should work on all iPhones affected by the vulnerability, Apple has introduced new security measures in iOS 14 to reduce the utilization. From now on, it is only possible to jailbreak iPhone 6s running iOS 14 using Checkra1n.
