Electronics giant Apple has stopped signing the iOS 13.2.2 version of its mobile operating system. This move comes weeks after the rollout of the Apple iOS 13.2.3. It means that users can no longer downgrade their operating system to the older 13.2.2 version. If one needs to perform the backup, they need to have an Apple signed copy of the iOS version. Downgrading is a common practice in the jail-breaking community. In fact, power users also tend to downgrade to an older version in case of an unstable and buggy update.

Some of these security and performance improvements are quite significant as compared to the rest of the update. In addition, this will also likely stop a new jail-breaking exploit called “checkm8” for iPhone X and older models. This option will also push an increasing number of users to install the latest version of iOS available. Pushing the latest version for iOS devices also ensures that the smartphone is running on the most stable version of the software.
