After release of iOS 15.2.1 In early January, Apple stopped signing iOS 15.2, the previous version that was released on December 13, 2021. This means that it will no longer be possible to downgrade to that version if you have already updated the operating system to iOS 15.2.1. But let’s try to understand what it means in more detail.
iOS 15.2.1: Apple make downgrade impossible
Let’s face it: the suspension of the signature of iOS 15.2 does not surprise us too much. On the other hand, Apple regularly stops signing previous versions of software updates after new versions are released. The goal, of course, is to encourage users to keep their operating systems up to date. Still, iOS 15.2 was released just over a month ago, also making notable improvements to Apple device software. Among them, the new Apple Music Voice Plan, safety warnings for children using the Messages application, Digital Legacy and much more.
The iOS 15.2.1 update he arrived soon after, taking the fix a bug in CarPlay with third-party apps that don’t respond to input. And fixing an issue that caused messages sent via an iCloud link to not load. In short, the update brings improvements to the operating system, but this time it presents a clause that should not be underestimated. If you encounter problems with iOS 15.2.1, in fact, you cannot go back to the previous version. But you have to wait for a future patch. And so, when iOS 15.3 is available, chances are you won’t be able to go back to iOS 15.2. No downgrades for Apple users, then. Will this be yet another move by the company to invite users to update their devices?
