Apple Stops Signing iOS 14 After Releasing iOS 14.0.1

.....Following the release of iOS 14.0.1 on Thursday, September 24, Apple has stopped signing iOS 14, which means downgrading to the launch version of iOS 14 after upgrading to iOS 14.0.1 is no longer possible.

Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out in order to encourage customers to keep their operating systems up to date.

iOS 14.0.1 was a bug fix update fixing issues that weren't able to be addressed in the initial version of iOS 14. The update fixed a bug that could cause third-party apps set as the default to reset after the iPhone is restarted. It also addressed a bug that could prevent the iPhone from connecting to some WiFi networks, and fixed an issue that could prevent sending email with some mail carriers.

iOS 14.0.1 is the current publicly available version of iOS that people can download, but there's also an iOS 14.2 update that has been provided to developers and public beta testers. iOS 14.2 introduces new emoji 13 characters, a Shazam Music Recognition feature for the Control Center, and some other Apple Music-related Control Center tweaks.

what are the signs......?!


I reject your reality and substitute my own!

This week I finally got my iPad Air 2 upgraded to iOS 14. I had left it on iOS 9 for years because it had TuneShell on it, a nice music app that ceased to function on every device that I upgraded to iOS 10 or above. The developer abandoned it, so it never became compatible. However, I finally decided to let it go and move on, since I have Cesium and like it.

The first hitch was that the upgrade could not be done wirelessly. The next hitch was that trying to do the upgrade through iTunes resulted in an error message (after the download of the upgrade) that the iPad’s “firmware” could not be updated. It was starting to look like the Air 2 would be on iOS 9 forever. Fortunately, someone at Macintouch had the answer: the problem was iTunes 12.6.5. So I installed 12.8.2 on one laptop, tried to upgrade via iTunes again, and after a glitch or two, the upgrade was completed.

The most surprising thing is that TuneShell now works! It had no trouble accessing the music files, which was where it always bogged down before under iOS 10 or later. Now IT JUST WORKS.

I have been using Minis instead for several years and I am enjoying the bigger screen on the Air 2. Feels almost like I got a new iPad.

My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals
