Just a few hours ago, Apple developers released a new version of the mobile operating system iOS 7.1, which received not only new functions and interface elements, but also a number of patches for security holes.
However, the most important nuance is that Apple stopped signing the previous version of iOS 7.0.6 and closed the vulnerabilities that were used by the developers of the untethered jailbreak from Evad3rs - the information came from the MuscleNerd hacker, a member of the group. Actually, this is exactly the development of events Evad3rs predicted, urging users of the jailbreak community to install iOS 7.0.6, but not update to iOS 7.1. The problem is aggravated by the fact that Apple developers not only closed the discovered vulnerabilities, but also further strengthened the protection by blocking the exit from the "sandbox" service Apple File Connection.
It is noted that only iPhone 4 users will be able to roll back to the previous version of iOS 7.0.6 - the owners of other iGadgets have only to wait for the appearance of iOS 8 and hope that Evad3rs will find new vulnerabilities and release a new utility for hacking the platform. It is noteworthy that, as a rule, the previous version of the OS is available at least several days after the release of the new firmware, however, this time Apple stopped signing iOS 7.0.6 literally immediately after the release of iOS 7.1. In addition, Apple has also removed the platform rollback option in the iOS 7.1 beta.… Thus, the assembly released today becomes the only legitimate version of the "apple" mobile platform for the latest device models.

For a little over a week, users who installed the iOS 9.1 update on their iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch had the opportunity to rollback to the previous version of the iOS 9.0.2 mobile operating system, but now downgrading is not possible.This policy of Apple is familiar to owners of iDevices - after making sure that the next update is stable, the company stops signing digital certificates for installing previous versions
On September 30, Apple developers released another minor update to iOS 9.0.2, and immediately after that, the issuance of digital certificates for installing iOS 8.4.1 and iOS 9 stopped . Thus, it became impossible to roll back from the current OS version
Yesterday, in parallel with the release of the iOS 8.0.2 patch, Apple stopped signing the latest version of the iOS 7.1.2 operating system, thereby closing the window for downgrade (rollback) of the mobile platform. From now on, users who have installed iOS 8 will no longer be able to return to the previous generation of the OS
It Is No Longer Possible To Downgrade IOS 7 To IOS 6.1.3 (iOS 6.1.4) - Apple No Longer Signs These Firmware
Bad news. Just 3 days after the official release of iOS 7, Apple stopped signing iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 . This means that it is no longer possible to downgrade (downgrade) the firmware on iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini
A user with the nickname T0ma_94 posted screenshots on Twitter, confirming the possibility of receiving an untethered jailbreak Evasi0n7 of the new Apple iOS 7.0.5 . The jailbreak process itself is no different from previous versions and is possible on the latest versions of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c smartphones
