Apple stopped signing iOS version 13.7 in September 2020. That means you won’t be able to downgrade to iOS 13.7 through iTunes. Of course, this update didn’t come as a surprise because Apple routinely stops signing a previous version of iOS shortly after a new version is released.
In case you still like the features and functions iOS 13 offers and want to go back to that version, this blog will show you how to revert your iPhone back to iOS version 13.7 step by step using some iOS downgrade tools you’ll discover in this blog.
