Apple today has officially stopped typing iOS 12.0.1, originally released in early October. This means that downgrade from the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 12.1, is no longer possible.

Apple regularly stops typing older versions of iOS as part of their efforts to keep users on the most current and thus secure versions of the operating system. Apple last stopped signing iOS 11.4.1, preventing downgrades from iOS 12 to iOS 11 and ended signing iOS 12.0.

Over the years, the reasons for downgrading have become increasingly sparing – especially when users use over-the-air updates compared to plugs directly in iTunes. In the past, users would often downgrade to jailbreak.

The current public version of iOS is iOS 12.1. Apple is currently beta testing iOS 12.1.1, which is currently on its third beta. The update includes new iPhone XR features, new Apple Watch complications and more.

Do you need to downgrade from iOS 12.1?
