Apple iOS 9.2

Last week, we saw Apple releasing its iOS 9.1 software supported on its iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. The software update brings along 150 new emojis and Live photos functionality. As soon the company launched this new software version, it stopped signing iOS 9.0.2.

This means that if you have updated your device to the iOS 9.1, you won’t be allowed to roll back to the iOS 9.0.2 that was released in the beginning of this month. As per reports, the Chinese team Pangu had released a jailbreak tool earlier this month that runs on the iOS 9 through 9.0.2 version.

This was the time when apple quickly fixed the exploits used by the tools in iOS 9.1 and credited Pangu team for discovering he vulnerabilities. The phone maker has now released the first beta version of its iOS 9.2, which if installed won’t allow you to move back to the previous version.
