Starting Today, Apple Will No Longer Let Users Roll Back to iOS 15.1.1 or iOS 15.1


Apple iPhone 13 series

After the official release of iOS 15.2 earlier this month for all users, Apple has started to stop signing iOS 15.1.1 for the iPhone 13 models and iOS 15.1 for older supported models.

What this means is that the users who updated their devices to the latest version of iOS, namely iOS 15.2 can not downgrade to either iOS 15.1.1 or iOS 15.1.

This comes after Apple stopped signing iOS 15.1 for iPhone 13 models in November, considering how the company released the iOS 15.1.1 update to cater to a bug affecting the current generation of iPhones. Now, since iOS 15.2 is available, iOS 15.1 and iOS 15.1.1 are no longer available for any of the supported iPhone and iPad models.

In case you missed it, the older version of iOS debuted back in October with certain features, some of which include COVID-19 vaccination certificates in the Wallet app, SharePlay for Facetime, ProRes support on the iPhone 13 Pro series and more. The ability to disable Macro mode also came with this update.

If you or someone you know updated to iOS 15.2 and are facing issues, you will, unfortunately, have to wait for a future update instead of rolling back.

In other Apple news, the company started rolling out iOS 15.2 for its users, with the latest version of iOS bringing with it multiple features, some of which include communications safety on iMessage, legacy contacts, Apple Music voice plan support and more.

Apart from these new and much-awaited features, the company also debuted multiple bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone via this iOS 15.2 update.

The update also offers App Privacy Report, bug fixes for your iPhone and the new communications safety features meant for children and parents using iPhones

What Else is the Company Working on?

iOS 15.2

Of these, the most important is undoubtedly the Apple Music Voice Plan, which makes its debut on iOS 15.2, with this being a new subscription plan that will let you access your music using Apple’s voice assistant, Siri.

Going deep into the new features first off is the Apple Music Voice Plan, which is designed “exclusively for Siri.” Those who subscribe to the service can access a whopping 90 million songs.

Moreover, the service offers subscribers a wide range of playlists, including a considerable number of new playlists. You can subscribe to Apple Music Voice Plan via Siri.

All you need to say is, “Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial.” Alternatively, you can sign up via the Apple Music app. It is worth mentioning here that the trial will expire after seven days.
