    Apple has stopped signing iOS 8.2 for iPhone and iPad, preventing downgrades through iTunes. iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.3 or later are now stuck on that software version. Anyone who is currently jailbroken on an earlier software version should be especially cautious, as upgrading to iOS 8.3 will return your device to factory settings and there is no going back.

    Didn't that happen a little while back already?

    They stopped signing the 8.2 betas a while back. I don't think anyone really cares that they stopped signing 8.2 final anyways because it isn't jailbreakable (yet) and 8.3 is better. The wording in this post is just misleading.

    Nobody is jailbroken on 8.2 final, which is what they stooped signing. They stopped signing 8.2 beta 1 and 2 a while ago, which is what jailbreakers care about.

    Considering that 8.4 is in beta 2 (or PB 1), it's about time that they did this.

    8.3 slays all other iterations of iOS8.
    There is an argument to stay on 8.0 through 8.1.1 for better battery life, but 8.2 holds nothing over 8.3

    For sure. 8.3 is very smooth and stable. If they could only get the occasional stutter sorted, I don't understand why it happens since ios8.
    7.1 never stuttered and even 7.0, which did a lot of things wrong speed wise, did not stutter. Any code people got an idea why it's happening since iOS 8, it can't be the design surely since it's the same as last year.

    Seems like you have fairly different recollection of iOS 7, in particular 7.0.

    iOS 8.2 was better for my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini 2. iOS 8.3 is better for my iPad 2.

    Under 8.2 I never got stuttering on my 5, and now 8.3 stutters multiple times a day (animations I mean :p )

    Why? 7.0 was slow, laggy and unresponsive but it did not choke/stutter like 8 does occasionally. Right?
