Apple Stops Signing iOS 10.2

IPSWFollowing the release of iOS 10.2.1 on January 23, Apple has stopped seeding iOS 10.2, the previous version of iOS that was available to consumers.

Customers who have upgraded to iOS 10.2.1 will no longer be able to downgrade their devices to iOS 10.2.

Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out to encourage customers to stay up to date. iOS 10.2.1 is now the only version of iOS 10 that can be installed on iOS devices by the general public, but developers and public beta testers can also download iOS 10.3, a future update that is currently being beta tested.

Apple has also stopped signing tvOS 10.1 now that tvOS 10.1.1 has been available for a week.

Of course. The 10.2 jailbreak was recently made super stable and added support for more devices.

Apple can't have too many people escaping its "glorious" walled garden.


Oooor... they just fix exploits.

Or they don't want iPhone users to have security and software flaws. Especially with how messed up the ridiculously stupid news sites are.

"Man with iPhone loses all his money - phone hacked!!"

.... *twelve paragraphs in* he was on an old iOS version with known security issues.

I stopped trying to escape when jailbreaking went from open-source software you can run on Mac to highly suspect, closed-source, Windows-only software from China that sometimes comes with piracy stuff bundled in. Meanwhile, my iPhone also now has credit card info and my fingerprints. Not gonna trust that.

Supposedly 9.3.5 was to spell the end of jail breaking iOS. But nope, it was hacked again in iOS 10.x. Never fear, iOS will be hacked again for a jail beak soon enough. This has been going on for ten years.
