    Hey so I'm on iOS9 now as I haven't yet updated to iOS10. I'm just curious if in the event I don't like iOS10 can I still downgrade back to iOS9?

    As far as I'm aware, you can't currently go back if you upgrade.

    I don't believe so, iOS 9 is no longer being signed.

    No. For devices that can go beyond iOS 9, Apple has long stopped signing anything prior to 10.3.1. No way to get there from here.

    Oh okay. Is that the same for the Mac? I'm still on El Cap.

    No, it is not the same for OSX or macOS. You cannot put a version on a Mac that is older than what originally came on that Mac, but otherwise, you can install any version on your Mac. It may require you to wipe it and then start over... it since Apple does not "sign" OSX or macOS, it is possible.

    Why downgrade to iOS 9 NOW? iOS 11 is around the corner . iOS 10 is much berry than iOS 9 IMO

    I'm still on iOS 9. I never upgraded to iOS 10.

    But I'd have to downgrade Apps also. That could be a pain.
