Apple stops iPhones from downgrading to iOS 13.5 due to jailbreaking

AlbertflexAlbertflex in June 11, 2020

Few days ago, iPhone users were happy for the release of the first-ever jailbreak for the iPhone 11 series after a long time and this jailbreak released by Unc0ver was said to work on any iPhone running iOS 13.5 or lower. However, that should tell you that the jailbreaking was possible only because of bugs present in iOS 13.5 or older versions and won’t be available on newer versions of iOS.

This meant that people who were interested in jailbreaking their device were told strictly not to update to iOS 13.5.1 or higher. Apple, as we know, is strictly against jailbreaking and they quickly released iOS 13.5.1 to fix the loophole that was used for jailbreaking.

So it is now obvious that iOS 13.5.1 will not allow you to jailbreak your iPhone and so iOS 13.5 or lower should be installed. For those who have installed iOS 13.5.1, however, there is no going back as Apple has stopped signing iOS 13.5 meaning you can’t downgrade to that version even if you want to.

For those users who are still running iOS 13.5 or lower, they will be enjoying their jailbroken iPhone for as long as they are forced to update their devices. Now, we do know that Apple released this new version and stopped signing iOS 13.5 in order to not let people jailbreak their iPhones. But it is not uncommon to see Apple forcing users to upgrade to a new version of iOS and removing signature for the older version.

According to reports, “a similar security fix for tvOS, watchOS, and macOS, patching the vulnerability across all devices” as per MacRumors report. Now that Apple has raised the bar, it is now up to unc0ver to see if they can find a new vulnerability that isn’t patched on iOS 13.5.1 that allows you to jailbreak your iPhone one more time.

In conclusion, kindly note that if you want to un-jailbreak your iPhone then all you need do is just upgrade to iOS 13.5.1 and you will lose the jailbreak.

Apple have the best interest of their costumers at heart and that's why the security measure is being put in place, and therefore, informing its users. Well-done guys.

IPhone is a very nice phone with sophisticated technologies, however, I can't recommend them because of the uniquely designed concept they use, I prefer using an android.

iPhone battery is not strong enough They should try to improve the battery capacity

PreshPresh in Jun 14, 2020 Reply

Apple is always considerate of their customers needs and by far has made them happy, but their battery efficiency is not strong enough to let their customers enjoy this privilege.

Wow! this is a good news to some people and bad news to some people who want to downgrade their iphone but I think Apple knows what best will satisfy their customer.

I think right now it's a battle for the mindshare of the developers and for the mindshare of the customers and I think iphone and Android is winning that battle

I think that should also be done for Android devices where it becomes impossible to root some devices.👍

It think it is better for the customers devices to be secured,over years I phones has been rated as one of the best secured phone in the world so I think this is kind of a bad news (jailbreak)

It is good to note that stoping iPhone is not the solution... The more quality a product is.the better chance it has

The customers devices should be really secured because most of their actual accounts are linked in the device most especially the iCloud. And something should be done about the battery life. Thanks you.

DivieDivie in Jun 22, 2020 Reply

Apple should work on increasing battery capacity, I think the goal is to be a superior version of devices to others...so they should live up to it

Truly I don't understand the meaning of jailbreaking but maybe it's kinda like a way to secure account linked to iCloud

I think iPhone should improve the battery span of their phone because it's going a long way to help the buyers.

Those that didn't get to downgrade before it was banned are quite unlucky,but for those that still the lower version I must say you guys are a little bit lucky coz it's a matter of time.
