ios7-beta5Are you unhappy about the changes Apple has made to iOS 8? For the most part they are improvements, although we guess some iOS users might not be too happy because the new features might be causing their phones to perform slower than before. Unfortunately it looks like if you wanted to downgrade back to iOS 7, you’re out of luck.

According to iClarified, it seems that Apple has recently stopped signing for iOS 7.1.2, the latest version of iOS 7 at the moment. What this means is that if you were thinking about downgrading from iOS 8 to iOS 7.1.2, it would no longer be possible, although it seems that it is still currently signed for iPhone 4 users since iOS 8 is pretty much a no-go for them.

This move by Apple is hardly surprising as the Cupertino company tends to stop signing for older releases once they release a new version of iOS, and we guess iOS 7.1.2 is no exception to the rule. However if you’re still holding off on updating to iOS 8 just yet, and we know that there are more than a few of you guys out there, maybe you can see how iOS 8 performs on a similar device before choosing to go ahead with the upgrade.
