Apple no longer allows downgrading from iOS 7 to iOS 6September 27 | Posted by nadine | OS News Tags: apple, downgrade, iOS, iOS 6, iOS 7, update, upgrade
The news comes to us via iMore. The site reports, “The directions we offered several weeks ago were for users that were running the beta version of iOS 7 before it was ever made available to the public. Once Apple released iOS 7 to everyone, they quickly stopped signing iOS 6 installs. This simply means that if you try and downgrade back to iOS 6, iTunes will produce an error message saying that you can’t. Users typically still a message saying they aren’t eligible for that specific build. You didn’t do anything wrong during the downgrade process, it just means you’re running a newer version, aka iOS 7, and Apple doesn’t want you going to an older version.
“This is common practice for Apple and something that they always do when they release a new version of iOS. We wish we could give you another option to get back to iOS 6 but we can’t right now.”
