#(2/5/19 Edit 2) Post Unlocked. 12.1.1 Beta 3 is still being signed #(2/5/19) iOS 12.1.1 and 12.1.2 are no longer being signed. This thread is now locked A lot of news came out this week, so I'm updating my "Should I Update" post. --- #What Version? If you are on 12.0, 12.0.1, 12.1, Up to you if you want to risk losing your lower firmware. If you are on 12.1.1 - 12.1.2, **DO NOT UPDATE** (Read Below) If you already are on 12.1.3 or 12.2 Beta - **DOWNGRADE** If you are on iOS 11.4 - 11.4.1, **A jailbreak just came out for you guys.** Up to you if you want to risk that for an iOS 12 jailbreak If you are jailbroken on iOS 11.0-11.3.1, New/more reliable exploits came out this week for you guys. Up to you if you want to risk that for an iOS 12 jailbreak If you are on iOS 10 or below, it's up to you if you want to risk your jailbreak but gain app support/new features --- #What We Know: We know the released exploit works up to 12.1.2 As far as device support goes, it works on the A12 chip which means iPhone(s) Xs, Xs Max, and Xr. However, on the [Security Update page for iOS 12.1.3](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT209443) it says: > Available for: iPhone 5s and later, iPad Air and later, and iPod touch 6th generation --- [For those thinking about upgrading to 12.1.2, keep this in mind](https://bgr.com/2018/12/24/ios-12-1-2-update-problems-iphone-calling-messaging-bug/). There are some bugs on 12.1.2 that affects a small number of users but are bad enough to make you consider going to 12.1.1 instead. --- The Facetime eavesdrop bug affects iOS 12.1-12.1.3, a tweak can fix this, however, 1. It won't be easy to make 2. It would only help you when jailbroken Right now, Group Facetime is disabled on Apple's Servers. iOS 12.1.4 will come out later this week to fix the bug. When that update is out, Apple will not enable Group Facetime again for iOS 12.1-12.1.3 --- #FAQS **How do I upgrade/downgrade?** [Downgrade](https://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/apple/downgrade-ios-12-3664217/) [Upgrade](http://osxdaily.com/2017/09/24/install-ios-11-with-ipsw-firmware/) **As of now, if you are using the lastest macOS Beta, YOU CAN NOT UPGRADE OR DOWNGRADE MANUALLY VIA ITUNES** **Where can I download the IPSW?** From [ipsw.me](https://ipsw.me/) **How long do I have to decide?** Nobody knows when Apple will close the signing window. **What are the benefits up updating to 12.1.1 or 12.1.2 if I'm on 12.0-12.0.1?**[ Here is a detailed changelog of bug fixes and features.](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT209084#1201) **Why are there 2 versions of iOS 12.1.2?** There was a bug in the first version which prompted Apple to push a newer version.
