Last week Apple announced that the new version of the iOS operating system, number 6, will be available on September 19, i.e. Today. Yes, the operating system has already been available to developers since June, but today it will be available to everyone. In this regard, we decided to inform you about the important things that need to be done in order to be fully prepared for the release of the new iOS.
The first thing you should know about is that the new iOS has not yet received a fully functional untethered jailbreak. Therefore, if today you decide to upgrade, you will lose your jailbreak indefinitely.
In truth, the Dev Team has already attempted to hack the iOS 6 beta on A4 chips, but they never resulted in an adequately working jailbreak.
Well, now just a list of tips for those who are going to update their smartphone:
- Save your SHSHs - if you've ever jailbroken or are going to do one in the future, be sure to save your SHSH. It only takes a few seconds, but it will give you the option to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 when Apple stops signing them.
- Make the Back the Up your device - this is done very simply - either through iTunes, or through iCloud. We recommend making a backup as often as possible, especially if you frequently use various tweaks and other jailbreak features.
- Beware of over-the-air updates - starting with iOS 5, a wireless system update function has been added. If you are not going to upgrade to iOS 6 - be careful, because On your device, sometimes dialog boxes may pop up prompting you to update the system.
- You need iTunes 10.7 - remember that to sync your iOS 6 device with your computer, you need a new version of iTunes.
Also, remember that not all applications are yet adapted for the new OS, so if you have applications that play a very important role in your daily life, check before updating whether these applications are adapted for iOS 6.
