On the night of 15 November, Apple has stopped signing iOS 13.2. This means that the owners of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch will no longer be able to install this version of the operating system. However, since the release of iOS 13.2 it took not much time – Apple usually revokes the operating system later. What is the hurry this time?
Last week, the wider public became available iOS 13.2.2, and it’s one of the reasons why the previous OS version is no longer available. After all, the biggest change in iOS 13.2.2 the correction of problems associated with background applications and multitasking (when applications consume too much memory). The upgrade also included improving the performance of cellular data support for Exchange in Mail app and more.
Why iOS is not available 13.2
Therefore, if users have installed on their iOS device 13.2, they could be faced with incorrect operation of the operating system and too great a memory consumption.
Another reason for the opinion OS — release program for iOS 13.2, which works on iPhone X and older smartphones. In iOS 13.2.2 vulnerability, which was used by the hackers were removed.
Apple intentionally deprives users of the ability to freely downgrade to older iOS versions. Therefore, companies try to avoid fragmentation is well known to users of devices running Android, and to maintain uniform standards across the ecosystem. Therefore, the practice of revocation of signature for the company is widespread. Return to older iOS is commonplace in the community of jailbreak and sometimes it can be useful for users who have a lot of errors after updating to the latest iOS version.
Apple always discontinues the signature of the old versions of iOS later, about a month after the update. Therefore, the company wants users to install the latest version of the operating system, which includes the latest achievements of engineers in the field of security and performance.
