iOS 9 is a revolution in iOS releases, with intelligent features that make your iPhone or iPad more proactive than ever before, as well as more secure, with the introduction of a number of new security features.
Update: Apple is now urging users of iPhone 4s, iPad Mini 1st, iPad 2nd and iPad 3rd generation to be updated to iOS 9.3.6, by Nov 3rd, 2019 to continue using their services. You can find the download links for the firmware below.
Apple will only be signing two iOS versions at once – the latest one and the previous one. With the previous firmware, they stop signing after a week and, right now the below-listed version is the only ( active firmware ).
- iOS 9.3.6
The following iOS 9 versions are no longer being signed:
- iOS 9
- iOS 9.0.1
- iOS 9.0.2
- iOS 9.1
- iOS 9.2
- iOS 9.2.1
- iOS 9.3
- iOS 9.3.1
- iOS 9.3.2
- iOS 9.3.3
- iOS 9.3.4
- iOS 9.3.5
If you try to put one of the expired versions on your iOS device, you will get a Requested Build Error 3194; it will tell you that your device isn’t eligible for the requested build. Keep reading because we will be telling you how you can safely downgrade your iOS version.
How to Install iOS 9 Firmware:
Before we get busy, there are a couple of things you need to do:
First, make sure that iTunes is up to date; you will need it for two methods:
- Launch iTunes and click Help > Check For Updates
- If iTunes requires updating, instructions will appear on the screen – follow them
Second, make sure your data is backed up – if anything goes wrong, you will lose everything.
Third, disable Find My iPhone/iPad and Passcode (Touch ID if it is enabled). These can be switched back on later.
Method 1: Over the Air (OTA)
While this is the smallest update, it is not compatible with any jailbreak; if you intend to install Cydia, do not use this method:
- Launch Settings > General on your device
- Choose Software Update
- When iOS 9 update is found tap Download
- Tap on Install and leave your device to update; when it reboots, it will be on the Hello screen.
Method 2: iTunes
- Plug your device into your computer and open iTunes
- If you have two or more devise registered, click the Summary for the device connected
- Click on Update>Install
- Wait; your iPhone or iPad will reboot when the update is finished
- The Hello screen appears, and you can begin setting your device up
Method 3: iTunes with IPSW
- Click the IPSW link below that corresponds to your device
- Connect your device to your C/Mac and open iTunes
- Choose the Summary for the connected device (only if you have more than one registered)
- Press either the SHIFT (Windows) or ALT (Mac) key and click Restore at the same time
- Find your IPSW file and click on it
- Click on Install and iTunes will update your iPhone or iPad
- When its all done, your device will reboot into the Hello screen
