In such a short period, we were able to covers almost all the new downgrade tools and in most cases, downgrading iTunes is required. That being said, let’s find out where is the most trusted source to download older iTunes software.
Recently, I came across an in-depth post on the R/Jailbreak subreddit by jailbre4ker, in which he mentioned about downgrading iTunes and where is the most reliable place to get those older versions.
After reading the post, I agreed with the post starter right away. As mentioned, one of the most common problem when users come on Reddit to ask for an older version of iTunes, other people usually tell them to search for it online, specifically search engines like Google or Yahoo.
This isn’t a bad recommendation at all, but you never know if the searcher has enough knowledge to know what they’re downloading to their computer. Although, the name of the software could be exactly like how Apple would title it, what’s inside is more important.
It could be malware, virus, and ads injection.
Go ahead and bookmark Callum Jones’ IPSW iTunes page to your toolbar or menu because this will come in handy whenever you need to look for an older version of iTunes. When landing on the page, you should see the Latest Release column which allows you to download the newest iTunes to your Mac or Windows.
Next to it is the Release History section, this part indicates all the previous iTunes releases, their date, and download links. Furthermore, the IPSW.Me site also provides iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch users with the latest iOS versions along with the older firmware that is still being signed by Apple.
Again, extremely useful if you want to downgrade your firmware. For Jailbreak users, do you hate those clickbait articles about jailbreak releases? Switch over to the Can I Jailbreak? page and you can find out whether your device is jailbreakble and what tool to use.
