ANYONE who messes with their iPhone can no longer fix it by reverting to the previous version of iOS.
Apple has officially stopped “signing” iOS 15.4.1, making it impossible for jailbreakers to jump back from the latest build of iOS if they do something horribly wrong.
A downgrade is usually seen as a last resort if your iPhone is having troubles, which is more likely to happen if you’re trying your hand at under the hood.
It’s fairly common for Apple to do this when it releases a new iOS kit.
With each release, the tech giant not only adds new features, but most importantly includes a number of security fixes.
This is one of the ways Apple manages to keep the iPhone pretty safe from hackers.
So if you’re having trouble with iOS 15.5 right now, you’ll have to wait for the company to release the next update.
That could take a few more months since iOS 15.5 was only released on May 16th.
It featured a number of big changes, including improvements to Apple Cash and some new features in the Podcasts app.
With Wallet, people can now send and request money with their Apple Cash card.
The Podcasts app has been updated with a special ability to limit episodes stored on your iPhone by deleting older ones to save space.
Fixed some home automation issues as well.
Of course, anyone with issues that can’t go back to iOS 15.4.1 has another option.
That’s to install the iOS beta – while that can be just as inherently buggy, it’s best not to jailbreak your iPhone at all.
