Apple has released the latest version of iOS 8, the iOS 8.1.3 and many users are upgrading to it. The new update is working nicely and has fixed many bugs and security issues. Among these ‘issues’, jailbreaking has also been bashed. So there is a bad news for all those who have downloaded and installed iOS 8.1.3: You cannot jailbreak your device using Pangu, PP, TaiG. Not only this, the latest update will catch your device and stop it because Apple has put patch fixed in the update. So if you are running iOS 8.1.3 on your iPhone or iPad and the device is jailbroken, be on the guard. Apple is still letting the iOS devices run the previous version of the iOS. So you can easily downgrade iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2.


In order to downgrade iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2, you will need to download iOS 8.1.2 separately. After downloading iOS 8.1.2, follow these steps.

You must take a complete backup of your device in order to be on the safer side. You can take backup of your iPhone or iPad data using iTunes or any other third party software.

Hold ‘Option’ key on Mac or Shift Key if you are using a Windows PC and click the restore iPhone/iPad button from the iTunes.


Go to the IPSW file of iOS 8.1.2 you downloaded earlier and select it.

Now wait for the process to complete. You can also jailbreak the device again if needed.

That was all. By following the above steps, you must be able to downgrade iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2 easily. Remember that things can stop working if Apple officially switches off support for iOS 8.1.2. Until then, enjoy!
