NIX Solutions: iOS 17.3 Installation Closure

Apple has recently closed the ability to install iOS 17.3, according to MacRumors. The build number iOS 17.3 no longer receives a certificate on the Apple server, meaning users are unable to install, update, or roll back to this version. Presently, iOS 17.3.1 is the only available and installable option, leaving users with no choice but to wait for the release of iOS 17.4 if they are unsatisfied.

Apple’s Restriction Practices:

Typically, Apple restricts the installation of older iOS versions within 1-2 weeks after the launch of newer releases. This practice, seen as a security measure against vulnerabilities like jailbreaking, has sparked debates. Critics argue that this approach limits user autonomy by denying them the choice to stick with a preferred iOS version, notes NIX Solutions.

Anticipated Features in iOS 17.4:

iOS 17.4 is expected to be a groundbreaking update. Users in the European Union will gain access to NFC on their iPhones, unlocking enhanced functionality. Furthermore, iOS 17.4 will introduce the ability to install applications outside of the App Store, with the option to make payments through third-party services.
