You Can Test Out iOS 8.4.1

You might not know this but you can test out the iOS 8.4.1 update and drop back down to iOS 8.4 thanks to a loophole that Apple typically leaves open for a week or two. 

Thanks to the downgrade process, iOS 8.4 users can download the iOS 8.4.1 update, try it for a few days, and then move back to iOS 8.4 if there is a noticeable drop in performance. It's a move that we've made several times on both iPhone and iPad.

Look into the downgrade process now or on the iOS 8.4.1 release date. Remember, you'll only have a limited time to drop down so you'll want to get familiar with the process before the update comes out or on the iOS 8.4.1 release date itself.
