    Apple will most certainly NEVER update the bootloaders on iPhones.

    The reason is that if the update screws at any point during the update, your iPhone will become a permanent brick that not even Apple will be able to unbrick.

    The reson why it will become a permanent brick if the update fails is because a broken bootloader or malfunctioning one for whatever reason will not be able to start running the Baseband or OS, which is what runs the device.

    Moreover, a bootlaoder update is risky and too costly is anything goes wrong, which will most certainly happen to many.

    iPhone SimFree as far as I know (because I use it) is update resistant
