Apple Closes iOS 16.7.6 Verification, Blocking Downgrade for iOS 16.7.7 Users

April 17, 2024 – Apple has recently shut down the verification channel for iOS 16.7.6, signifying that iPhone users who have upgraded to iOS 16.7.7 can no longer downgrade to the older version.

According to previous reports, Apple released the iOS 16.7.7 update on March 22nd of this year, which was specifically tailored for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. This update was relatively minor, with the entire installation process taking approximately 8-10 minutes.

Currently, iOS 16.7.7 stands as the only supported and verified version within the iOS 16 branch. This implies that should users encounter any issues, they cannot revert to a previous version; instead, they must await the release of Apple’s next update.

Although Apple has not yet confirmed a release date for iOS 16.7.8, it is anticipated to arrive sometime in May.
