Don’t Update / Restore Unlocked iPhone to iOS 8 in iTunes After Factory Unlock

Because of the recently found bug in iOS 8 factory unlocked iPhone locked after restore or update via iTunes. We will show how to avoid such bug.

Attention: Our unlocking company doesn’t responsible for such issue as it comes from Apple’s end only and can’t be considered as uncompleted service. The company is not responsible for the iOS 8 bug and there is no refund if iPhone got locked because of iOS 8 bug.

iOS 8 update has been warmly greeted by a lot of iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Apple reported that over 50 percent of its active users have already installed this newest version of mobile operating system for iDevice.

According to the unlocking instructions in some cases the user needs to restore unlocked iPhone to the latest firmware in iTunes in order to complete unlock. But because of the iOS 8 bug unlocked iPhone can be locked after restore and here we will show you how to avoid such issue in two different ways.

If your iPhone is factory unlocked and you wish to restore or update it to iOS 8

After getting the email with instructions that follows you to complete unlock in iTunes DO NOT activate / restore / update your device via iTunes. You can do the same true WiFi:

Step 1. Find and connect to the active Wi-Fi connection. Make sure that the battery of your iPhone is fully charged.

Step 2. Insert the SIM card of the carrier you try to use. Not the SIM card of the carrier to which your iPhone was previously locked.  

Step 3. When you will see the message – “Activation Required” click next and follow the activation steps.

Step 4. After activation you can install iOS 8 using WiFi and after updating the iPhone will be still unlocked.

After the steps above you can use iTunes if you need to restore unlocked iPhone and it won’t be locked again.

If you plan to order factory unlock and your iPhone is still running the lower version than iOS 8

Step 1. Restore or update your locked iPhone to iOS 8 before placing an order. But still it is better to use Wi-Fi  for that.

Step 2. After your iPhone will be running iOS 8 (8.1 / 8.1.1 and so on) you can place an order without any problem and you will get unlocking results as fast as we can.

Should I update to iOS 8?

We don’t want to diss he new firmware and it has a lot of useful features. We just pay your attention on such bug and advice how to avoid it. Apple has began to send out emails to remind smartphone and tablet users about iOS 8 upgrade. The company waited for less than two months after the official iOS 8 release and already trying to push customers who are not in a hurry to upgrade to iOS 8 to do so.

Some people are getting emails from the Cupertino-based giant where the famous iPhone maker is gently nudging its consumers to take the step and join those 50% who are already running iOS 8, 8.0.1, 8.0.2 or 8.1 while Apple itself continues testing the next iOS 8.1.1 which might be unveiled later this month.

According to Apple, once you upgrade you can enjoy a lot of interesting options not preset in iOS 7 and earlier firmware versions. For example, you can get iCloud Drive, Health app, Continuity and so on.
