A few days ago, the Cupertino guys released the iOS 12.4.1 update, motivated by a security issue that had been detected and that made iOS devices vulnerable prior to the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR at jailbreak. Coincidentally, this security bug had been fixed with the release of iOS 12.3.
However, when iOS 12.4 was released, this security bug that made devices vulnerable to jailbreak, was available again. Today, when it has been more than a week since the launch of iOS 12.4.1, the previous version, iOS 12.4 is still being signed by the servers of Apple.
The reason why Apple still signing iOS 12.4 we do not know, but it is especially striking. While is true that the jailbreak has ceased to be what it was a few years ago, we can still find a very active community in this field, although logically it is not as wide as in the past.
Further, Apple is aware that users value security You can offer your device and do not want to compromise it at any time by using third-party applications that may jeopardize not only the security of your devices, but also the operation of your terminal.
When it comes to a major security issue, which can affect millions of users worldwide, Apple quickly launch a new update and within a few hours stop signing the previous versions They are susceptible to the problem that has been detected.
In this case, the problem, it seems, only affects the possibility of jailbreak on the device and does not involve any security problem that may affect the stored data, hence, today, the boys of Cupertino continue signing the iOS version 12.4 of iOS.
