iOS 10.3.3 is still being signed
Surprisingly, Apple is still OTA signing iOS 10.3.3 considering iOS 11 has been out for a month now. Apple closed the signing window of iOS 10.3.3 along with iOS 11.0 a while ago, only to open it a few days later.
The primary reason behind this is the poor performance of older devices on Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 11.
Here are the devices that can still install iOS 10.3.3 –
- iPhone 5s
- iPad Air
- iPad mini 2
- iPhone 6s (not OTA signed)
As you already know, iOS 11.0.3 fixes all issues with iPhone 6s. Therefore, it won’t be long until Apple closes the signing window of iOS 10.3.3 altogether.
Remember, A7 devices that are already running iOS 11.0.x can’t downgrade without a special downgrade tool. Users running iOS 7-9 can, however, still upgrade via OTA.
Should I downgrade?
Yes, absolutely. I highly recommend downgrading your device to iOS 10.3.3 if you want a jailbreak.
Many exploits for iOS 10 are available publicly right now. A new exploit called OneRing was just released for iOS 10.x.x and below by Google Project Zero.
This indicates that this version may get a jailbreak somewhere down the line.
You will still be in luck if a compatible nonce setter gets released soon. This will allow you to downgrade to iOS 10.2, which can be jailbroken with yalu102.
There’s not much time left now for downgrading now and you must hurry up!
So what are you going to do – downgrade your device to iOS 10 or stay on iOS 11? Let us know in the comments section below.
