You Can't Downgrade to iOS 8.3

You need to be especially careful now that the iOS 8.3 downgrade has been plugged up by Apple.

Earlier this week, Apple stopped signing off on the iOS 8.3 update. What this means is that you can no longer drop back down to iOS 8.3 from iOS 8.4. Once you install iOS 8.4 on your tablet, you're going to be stuck on iOS 8.4. 

This is important to note if you're coming from an older update like iOS 7 that's performing nicely on your older iPad. It's also worth noting if you're already on iOS 8 having a grand old time. This is precisely why you'll need to dig for a bunch of feedback before making your move, especially if your iPad is tied to school or work.

    I have a iPad Air 2 running iOS 8.4. Just discovered that in my iBooks in the PDF Lib. I had created different Lib for PDF documents that I down load. And I had moved those documents to the new Lib from the PDF Lib. Now after I updated to 8.4 all of the PDF documents are showing up back into the PDF lib in addition to the new Lib that I had moved them to. If I delete it in the PDF lib it is gone in my custome Lib also. I used to keep Misc. PDF documents in my PDF folder now every PDF I have downloaded is back in that Lib. A real mess. It has taken me considerable amount of time in the past to organize these documents now I don’t have a clue wher to start.

    I am being prompted to update to 8 every day. Are the “bug fixes” they promise worth risking any system problems, and what are the bugs being fixed?
