Does Apple Sign iOS 9.3 for iPhone Downgrade from iOS 9.3.1 or Not?
Users who like to jailbreak their iPhone and iPad models are always careful when it comes to new Apple firmware releases. Why? They simply wish to stay jailbroken and this is not possible with every other update. iOS 9.3 signing status [any iOS signing state] is something to consider when it comes to downgrading or jailbreaking.
Can you downgrade iOS 9.3.1 to 9.3? Some users who have installed iOS 9.3.1 might wish to get back to the previous firmware version since there are more chances there would be new jailbreak that supports earlier release. iOS 9.3 jailbreak status is still not available because there is no possibility to untether this version. In other words, even if you are running iOS 9.3 on your iPhone or iPad you cannot jailbreak it.
You cannot downgrade from iOS 9.3.1 to iOS 9.3 as well because Apple stopped signing iOS 9.3. You can check this status by visiting IPSW.me site. If you still try to downgrade in hope to bypass this status you will get an error and will fail to successfully downgrade unless your firmware version is still signed by the ‘fruit’ giant which supports some recent updates that mean to fix iOS 9.3 issues and bugs on some iDevices. By the way, Pangu jailbreak only supports firmwares up to iOS 9.1 right now.
The Cupertino-based giant always stops signing older platforms and it likes to prevent users from downgrading. Jailbreak is one of the reasons why it happens because Apple is against of jailbreaking while it doesn’t let users to fully customize their iPhone or iPad in other way. There are many jailbreak tweaks that bring additional features to ‘fruit’ gadgets and this is why many people prefer jailbreaking if there is such a possibility.
