Apple has stopped signing iOS 12.4 following the release of iOS 12.4.1. That means that it’s no longer possible to downgrade again from the latest version of iOS if you’ve already upgraded.

iOS 12.4.1 fixed a security flaw which allowed an iOS jailbreak to be created for the first time in ages. It’s no wonder Apple doesn’t want you turning back!

Weeks before the official public debut of iOS 13, Apple says that 88% of users are currently running iOS 12.

The long wait for iOS 12.4 is finally over after Apple made the software update available to all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners this morning.

There are also tons of bug fixes and other changes, but the most notable thing about iOS 12.4 might be what it’s missing: Apple Card.

Developers received a fresh new batch of beta updates this morning, but if you were hoping for new iOS 13 goodies you’ll be sorely disappointed.

Apple released its seventh beta for iOS 12.4, the update that adds support for Apple Card. We assumed the update was pretty much ready to launch back when beta 5 came out, but it looks like we might have to keep waiting a while longer for Apple Card to launch.
