After iOS 8 was released, it had an impressively big adoption rate, reaching almost half of the supported devices in just a few days. Still. a lot of users kept complaining about the glitches that came with the new operating system, so they preferred downgrading to the previous version, iOS 7.1.2.
Apple was aware of this, so an update, 8.0.1, was immediately released, but it made things even worse, as some reports were pointing even to the inability of making calls or big issues with the Health apps, so once, again, iOS 7.1.2 was the solution.
After just two days, the Cupertino-based company took down the update and iOS 8.0.2 was issues, coming with a fix for the Health apps and other problems caused by the previous version. These weren’t the only important changes that the latest software update brought, as starting from this Friday, Apple also stopped allowing users do downgrade to iOS 7.1.2, according to Gizmodo.
It seems that they are considering their latest software version as bug-free and without any issues, being ready for mass adoption. On the other side, considering the latest events, a few days or weeks need to pass in order to see if this statement is indeed true and Apple didn’t took this decision too quick.
So, every iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch user currently using iOS 8 is basically stuck with this version at least until a new update starts rolling out.
