    It’s sad when software kills hardware. Apple really does want you to buy their new shit.

    They have had their devices locked down via software update signing for many years now. This is nothing new, everyone should have known by now that any Apple device they own can be rendered useless at any time since most use the firmware signing that prevents offline upgrades and restores.

    I literally cannot get over the fact that everyone is using this to attack Apple. You guys look like morons. This is CLEARLY a bug and will be fixed.

    So whats the point of owning a IPhone-IPad anyway? Half of the stuff you can do on there can be done on Android for free.

    Is it to show that you have more money then me and don't have nothing better to spend it on?

    OLD iOS VERSIONS ARE BEING SIGNED NOW :wtf:

    Just downgraded an iPhone 7 to 10.2 so I can jailbreak.

    Apparently this has happened before, better take advantage of it quick.
