Apple kills iOS 8 downgrade option with the birth of problematic iOS 9.0.2
Apple no longer offers users the option to downgrade to iOS 8 when it released the iOS 9.0.2 update. Users reported major problems with the latest iOS 9.0.2 which is supposed to fix iOS 9.0.1's bugs.
Apple usually makes downgrading to earlier iOS versions possible whenever a new software update turns out to be problematic. However, this is not the case with the launch of iOS 9.0.2. Forbes reported that Apple stopped signing both iOS 8.4.1 and iOS 9 versions. This means that users can no longer go back to these versions once they experience bugs with the new software update.
Users are now left with just the iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2. However, these two software versions have been widely complained of bugs and issues. The iOS 9.0.2 which is supposed to fix the errors in iOS 9.0.1 turns out to be troublesome as well.
Bidness Etc reported that Apple released the iOS 9.0.2 as a second update to the iOS 9. Issues surrounding the latest update include broken notification alerts, inability to receive mails, and failure to send and receive messages via the iMessage app.
Users complained that they are not getting audible notification alerts on both native and third-party applications like Facebook, WhatsApp, and Mail. They said that reminders do not work correctly resulting to missed deadlines and appointments.
Others have complained that they are not receiving any mails. Yet a message that says "Message not yet downloaded from server" pops up when users try to open mails.
Apple supposedly tried to imitate BlackBerry's native messaging service with its iMessage app. However, users complained that iMessage does not let them send or receive messages.
Venture Capital Post published in an earlier report that the iOS 9 version is supposed to improve on three key areas: display technology, privacy, and performance. There are also reports saying that the iOS 9 had the best adoption rate among Apple's software versions, yet it is also one of the most problematic.
The anticipated patches to issues in iOS 9 does not all come with the latest iOS 9.0.2 update. Users expect Apple to remove the bugs in the upcoming iOS 9.1.
