    Why are all ios versions available on appldnld.app.com if they are not signed any more?

    Maybe someone can downgrade?

    A lot of websites keep a database of them for older iOS devices or if there was a chance that you could downgrade

    Yes, but the links are not local to those sites, the files are in apple.com...

    Yes, you figured it all out.
    They are there because everyone can downgrade at any time they want.
    Go for it:rolleyes:

    It's as if the waiter wheels out the desert cart yet you can't order anything from it other than the orange sherbet (iOS8).

    Very funny... but you don't explain why those files are there and what are they used for if "nobody" can downgrade...

    Amazingly enough, there are people out there with iOS devices that Apple have long since kicked to the curb of obsoletion. Not everybody hurls their iOS device down a flight of stairs as soon as Apple decide its time for you to buy a new device for the latest iOS.

    Pretty sure there are lots of relic files ("archives") on the internet. I bet if you look really hard you can find a version of Windows 95 floating around. My goodness.

    Because they can. Maybe in the future they will only leave the latest version of each fw just to cover bases for older devices that people fix, but so far they don't have an issue with hard drive space to store these small files.
