When Apple launches a new version of iOS so many of us rush to download and install the upgrade, while there are some who would rather wait it out for the guinea pigs to find the issues for Apple to try and rectify. We are sure they will laugh at the amount of people who fall foul to early problems, just as they have with iOS 7.
Even though there have been teething problems with iOS 7 the biggest issue is with the design, because believe it or not some iOS users were not prepared for the huge design change, and as such wanted to revert back to an older version to something they knew and loved since 2007, because the design had not changed much up until last week.
We have been hearing from some iPad owners that they hate iOS 7 and were hopeful of downgrading to an older version, such as 6.1.2 and 6.1.3, but the Apple signing status by iOS for iPad shows that any hope of downgrading from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.4 has been grounded to a halt because they have now stopped the firmware.
All hope was not lost though because if you had an iPad 2 or even an iPad mini, then there was a chance for you to still downgrade to iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 firmware. However, the Apple signing status now shows none of their devices can be downgrading, it is as if Apple are making certain you do not revert back to the their older mobile OS, and we can understand why that is.
Apple wants to move on from the past, and so removing any version of iOS 6 is seen as the first step in doing this.
