Want to return to iOS 11? This needs to be done right now.
In the coming days, Apple will cease to produce the digital signature iOS 11.4.1. In this regard, the rollback from iOS 12 to iOS 11.4.1 will be impossible. If you have updated to iOS 12, but the update does not suit you, then roll back to iOS 11 it is not recommended to tighten. About exactly when we should expect the “death” of 11 and iOS how to downgrade iOS 12 told in this material.
When Apple will stop signing iOS 11.4.1?
Apple never announces the date on which it ceases to sign the older firmware. The company makes it when it counts. And Apple has no clear timetable. One firmware may stop sign up a week after the release of a new version, and the other a month and a half.
However, Apple definitely will stop signing iOS 11.4.1 and it will happen, most likely, in the coming days. It is enough to recall when Apple was finishing issuance of digital signatures to the most recent firmware versions.
- iOS 8.4.1 — ceased to subscribe to 1 October 2015.
- iOS 9.3.5 — ceased to subscribe to 19 Oct 2016.
- iOS 10.3.3 — ceased to subscribe to 5 October 2017.
If Apple remains true to itself, then iOS 11.4.1 will no longer be available for installation in early-mid October. Remarkably, each of the above firmwares stopped to obtain a digital signature on Thursday.
It is not excluded that tomorrow, October 4, Thursday, Apple will stop signing iOS 11.4.1. Then roll back to iOS 11 will cease to be possible.
