I’m getting the following error message after selecting the ipsw:
the iphone could not be restored. an unknown error occurred (3194)
what gives? Any fixes or workaround.
iOS 12.4.1 is no longer being signed for most devices
I hate apple and I love apple; its a love / hate relationship.
I am unable to downgrade to iOS 12 give me a error message saying “Declined to Authorize this image on this device for this user” . . . .
If it ant broke to fix it, and apples case just don’t even touch it! but they always do and make it worse. and worse. and wonder why people hate them
I hate Apple. What a horrible update. You would think that updating would make your phone better, and it literally makes NOTHING better. Now I am stuck with 13. Downgrading back to 12 should be possible.
Mine installed last night and now I just have a blank screen that says “Press home to upgrade” and when I do there is the Apple Logo…That’s it. Can’t get into my phone!
The same “ sucking of the battery” don’t install,
what should I do when I complete download of update package ? could you please guide me ?
This update hasn’t been pushed to my iPhone XR. Is this the case for everyone? AFAIK, this is the first time I’ve ever had to go online to get an iOS update.
With the 12.4.1 update the battery issue has returned, sucking my battery down like crazy. Normally I can go most of the day and only takes my battery down to 85 to op percent on my iPhone 7. 3 hours into to today and it was down to 85 %.
