Apple Blocks Downgrades from iOS 12 to iOS 11
Apple has just released iOS 12.0.1, and as per the company’s typical approach, downgrades to the previous major iOS release is no longer possible.
The Cupertino-based tech giant blocks downgrades to older iOS once it ships the first update to major versions. iOS 12.0.1 is the first such milestone for iOS 12, after the original launch last month.
What this means is that your iPhones and iPads updated to iOS 12.0.1 can no longer be downgraded to iOS 11 should you prefer the older version more. However, downgrades to iOS 12 are still allowed.
The iOS 12 push
According to third-party data, iOS 12 adoption isn’t going exactly as expected, though numbers appear to be a bit higher as compared to its predecessor.
