The Cupertino-based tech giant also has a tendency to be pretty aggressive when it comes to discontinuing the signing for older versions of iOS, fundamentally rendering them in a condition where they can’t be downgraded to. That’s the same case with the iOS 11.3.1 as Apple already stopped signing it a couple of weeks ago after it has released the iOS 11.4 final and 11.4.1 beta.
