Apple stops signing iOS 12.0

If you are on iOS 12.0.1 and you were hoping to downgrade from iOS 12.0.1 back to iOS 12.0, then we've got some bad news. Apple has just stopped signing iOS 12.0 making it impossible to downgrade from iOS 12.0.1 to iOS 12.0.

Apple stops signing iOS 12.0

The news shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since the Cupertino-based tech company released iOS 12.0.1 to the public just over two weeks ago. Apple typically stops signing firmware approximately 14 days after releasing a new version to facilitate software upgrades among its user base.

iOS 12.0.1 was a bug fix update for Apple’s latest and greatest mobile operating system, so no one should really be trying to downgrade to iOS 12.0. As for the jailbreak community, this change makes no real difference as there haven’t been any public jailbreak releases for iOS 12 since the software update first launched in mid-September.

As always, you can track which versions of iOS are being signed for your device from the ever-so-useful IPSW.me website.
