iOS 7 haters cannot downgrade to iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4


iOS 7 went live a few days ago and there are many haters out there that do not like the new update, and this is what brings us to the sad news. If you wish to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 you cannot because Apple is no longer signing 6.1 on many of its devices.

In a nutshell Apple is not giving you the ability to downgrade from iOS 7, so for all you iOS 7 haters out there you are fundamentally stuck. It gets worse than this for those who installed iOS 7, because a new 6.1.3/6.1.4 jailbreak is coming very soon and you will not be able to get this.

Phones Review have noticed that iOS 7 is not liked because of the new UI design, we have not heard users mention about the new camera features or the Control Center etc, it is simply down to the new design and feel of iOS 7 and that is why they want to downgrade.

A video was posted online on September 18th showing off the jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 on the iPhone 5, it is in no means smooth but we know it is coming. This is sad news for those that updated to iOS 7 because they know that they will be missing out on the new jailbreak.

If you are using the iPhone 3GS, iPad 2 and iPad mini you still have the chance of installing iOS 6.1.3 through iTunes according to iDB, are you annoyed that you cannot downgrade from iOS 7?

    Simple: I always make a backup before software updates. If you want to have a look at iOS 7 but are not sure if you like it yet, you can make a backup before upgrading, upgrade, and if you don’t like it you can go back by restoring the backup.

      Uh, that doesn’t work. I have 2 backups, one for iOS 6.1.3 and one for iOS 7.0.0. Using the iOS 6.1.3 backup doesn’t get me back to iOS 6.1.3 and I still have iOS 7.0.0 on my iPhone 4S with the iOS 6.1.3 backup’s settings.

      Well if it hurts your eyes the go and have it checked out. Put on glasses then. I’ve heard crazy things before but this is wild. iOS 7 is awesome and no one has a problem with their eyes. Wow!!!

        As you get older it takes longer to focus. The lens in your eye is not as malleable as it was. I have no problems with any other computer system just this. So yes you can say WOW. You will get old, and it will happen to you. IOS6 OK IOS7 not OK. Wonder what changed?

    I went to every possible small mobile phone shops …asking them to take whatever money they want but please get my ios 6 back ….

    ios 7 is LITERALLY HURTS THE EYES ..! No matter we adjust brightness…
    Its painful to see the apps inside folders…Strenuous and has made my Iphone 4 overall performance SLOW !

    When will Apple allow downgrade again ???

    Ios 7 is pathetic…Hating it for many reasons which Cant note down also…Longgggg List of drawbacks !

    iOS 7 did one thing for me.Its made up my mind that I’m leaving Apple and don’t be back anytime soon .They keep getting it wrong and I’ve had enough .They used to be an innovative company putting out exciting products . These days they , re followers rather than leaders and quite frankly other companies are doing things far better . It was nice while it lasted but now its time to move on from Apple

    Apple have fixed things that weren’t broken and ignored things that needed fixing . Never mind the fingerprint sensor .. Who needs that ? It’s simply a gimmick and money could and should have been spent on a larger screen. , on a better battery , on flash support, on a better typing and predictive text experience , on a UI that was easy on the eye , but instead they gave us gimmicks with no substance .. And we ‘re supposed embrace this as a new IPhone? it isn’t … It’s just a rehashed version of what’s gone before .. And not even done well

    I seem to have reverted just in the time. The following morning I read that Apple stopped signing 6.1.x. I don’t understand what everyone at Apple was thinking with this design.

  6. Heartbroken says:

    After many years of extolling the virtues of Apple and converting a number of friends, the way they have handled the introduction of this new operating system and the system itself have soured my appetite for more. I will no longer recommend Apple products and will be casting my eyes much further afield when it comes time to replace my equipment. Adios Apple, it was a blast while it lasted.

    I have trusted apple in the past but this time with ios7 apple betrayed me. Disgusting I hate ios7 because of multiple issues to name a few 1) eating up of battery 2) phone is getting hanged. I have iphone 5. Overall I can say ” Jobs we are missing u “

    I remember watching a video of Steve Jobs, went he returned back to APPLE as the company was no going well. “APPLE FORGOT WHAT APPLE WAS, trying to copy Microsoft etc”
    Apple is doing exactly the same mistake, IOS7 copy the look of windows 8 and google, why can they do what apple do, keeping the original UI from IOS6 and improve into IOS7?
    I was going to buy the new iPhone5s + the new iPad 5 but IOS7 make me change my mind.

  9. Angie says:

    Hate iOS 7! It’s slow, so slow I want to throw my iPhone out the window and go get an Andoid. Grey is like a gray day, ick! And it’s buggy and hangs. Apple missing the brand that win them all this market share.

    IOS7 is a disappointment on my 4s – washed out colors, hard to see, hard for me to delete voicemails while previously it was a whiz, email function on camera is now a step or two away, battery still dead by early afternoon, and more. I will be looking hard at Samsung and HTC for my next smart phone. No iproducts – poor decisions, Apple.

  11. Ruben says:

    Ios7 sucks.. it doesnt like my 3rd party cable to charge my phone? like wtf it worked perfectly fine with ios6 and now I was forced to enable roaming when I was abroad without wifi as there was no way to get photos on my PC.. also Airplay doesn’t let me stream video to me atv1 with xbmc/openelec, which also worked perfect with IOS6.. I am thinking to sell my 5 and buy a used 4s with ios 6.1.4

    Playing podcast audio from a website or app, can no longer pause the damn thing from the lock screen or scroll up interface. What a damn joke. It was so much easier to do anything before, now, even closing past used apps is a damn nuisance. I swear, must be the same people that work on youtube or something.
