    Following the release of iOS 12.2 on March 25, Apple has stopped signing iOS 12.1.4, the previous version of iOS that was available to consumers.

    iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners who have upgraded to iOS 12.2 will no longer be able to downgrade to iOS 12.1.4.

    iOS 12.2, available on all devices able to run iOS 12, was a major update that brought the Apple News+ service, new Animoji, Safari changes, and much more.

    Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out in order to encourage customers to keep their operating systems up to date.

    iOS 12.2 is now the only version of iOS that can be installed on iPhones and iPads, but developers and public beta testers can download iOS 12.3, another major update that's currently being beta tested.

    Funny, I haven’t received pushed OTA to 12.2 to any of my iOS 12 devices. Doesn’t matter as I usually wait a bit when a new update is launched in case there are bugs.

    12.2 is good, Amazing how much further we are now from the crappy 11 series.

    Tim is just making sure the new Apple+ revenue options never leaves your device.

    iOS 12.2 has been really good thus far have not seen any issues. My iPAD Air 2013 was able to get it and its running great!!!!

    As for jailbreak I do miss the Bigify & themes but really have not done it in awhile but didn't cydia shutdown last year?
