A month ago, Apple stopped signing the first public release of iOS 15, and by mid-October, iOS 15.0.1. Now the company has just stopped signing iOS 15.0.2, which means that users who have updated their devices to iOS 15.1 can no longer downgrade to iOS 15.0.2.
iOS 15.0.2 was released to users on October 11 with fixes for AirTags that might not show up in Find My Items tab, iPhone leather wallet with MagSafe that might not connect to the Find My network, along with a fix for CarPlay that might fail to open audio apps or cut off call while running.
A week ago, Apple released iOS 15.1 that re-enabled SharePlay in FaceTime, brought the ProRes video codec for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max users, and added a toggle to turn on/off macro shooting. Learn more about iOS 15.1 here.
Downgrade to older iOS versions is often used by those who jailbreak their iPhones. Restoring iPhone or iPad to an earlier version of iOS can sometimes be helpful for users who are facing major errors after upgrading to the latest iOS version.
If you encounter any serious issues with iOS 15.1, unfortunately, you will now have to wait for a future update instead of downgrading to iOS 15.0.2.
