    I am getting iPhone 8+ tomorrow and I'm curious, if I would rather use iOS 10 until there is an update to 11, is there any way to get it on my new phone? Thanks

    I think you can manage to get 10.3.3 on there because Apple is still signing the install package. Once Apple stops signing it you’ll have no choice but to stick with iOS 11.

    no you can't. IOS 10 doesn't support the new iPhones, simple as that

    As other people mentioned, there is a minimum supported iOS version for each phone. I wasn’t aware of that. Always learning something new every day.

    It doesn’t matter that there is a minimum supported version of iOS for each iPhone. What’s more of a hindrance to you is that there doesn’t exist iOS 10 for iPhone 8 because Apple doesn’t create ipsw files for iPhone 8 for iOS 10. Software doesn’t magically exist by willing it into existence, it has to be written by humans.

    Exactly, if you were able to hack into Apple there is probably a version of iOS 10 that would run on it since it would have been more stable than the iOS 11 betas at some point in the testing process, but that will never see the light of day.
