- ♥ 2. After upgrading your iDevice to iOS 15.7.9, if you really want to downgrade to another version "Apple hasn't stopped signing", it is not recommended to check the box "Retain User's Data", as it may fail or the device may be abnormal after successful flashing. Customized Backup data is recommended before downgrade. Then select "Quick Flash Mode" after customized backup. You can Customize Restore the data after successful flashing.
