Apple unexpectedly bans rollback to iOS 6 on older iPhones

The reasons are unknown.
Earlier, we repeatedly talked about a method that allows you to install the legendary iOS 6.1.3 firmware on iPhone 4s. From today it is impossible to do this. Apple suddenly stopped signing iOS 6.1.3 firmware for the iPhone 4s and iPad 2.
IOS 6 can no longer be installed on iPhone 4s
Apple continued to sign iOS 6.1.3 firmware for the iPhone 4s for several years after its release. Thanks to this, iPhone 4s users could freely return to iOS 6.1.3 from the newer iOS 9.3.5 firmware. Many took advantage of this opportunity, since iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 4s works much faster compared to iOS 9.3.5.
From today, Apple has banned rollback to iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 4s. What is the reason for this decision of the company is unknown.
Why did Apple sign iOS 6.1.3
Apple continued to sign iOS 6.1.3 for a reason. The company did this so that users of iPhone 4s running iOS 5 can update their devices via Wi-Fi.
The fact is that updating iPhone 4s from iOS 5 on board via Wi-Fi was only possible on iOS 6.1.3. And after installing iOS 6.1.3, users were able to upgrade via Wi-Fi to the latest current firmware iOS 9.3.5. Thus, Apple left iOS 6.1.3 in the ranks for the convenience of users.
However, now the company for some reason banned the installation of iOS 6.1.3. Starting today, owners of iPhone 4s running iOS 5 will only be able to upgrade their devices to iOS 9.3.5 using iTunes.
