Apple on Thursday stopped signing code for iOS 14.2 and the subsequent iOS 14.2.1 point update following December's release of iOS 14.3.

The cease of code signing comes nearly a month after iOS 14.3 was pushed out on Dec. 14 and effectively stops users from downgrading to an older version of the operating system.

Apple regularly stops signing out-of-date code to prevent users from installing old iOS versions following the release of a new version, a practice that keeps users safe from new threats and ensures devices are running the latest feature-rich software.

The latest iOS 14.3 delivered long-awaited access to the Apple ProRAW image format for iPhone 12 Pro devices, Apple Fitness+, updates to the Apple TV app, and support for AirPods Max.

Apple is currently testing the upcoming iOS 14.4 beta that should launch in the coming weeks.
