Question: Is it possible to put IOS 8 on my iPod if it already has IOS 9

Is it possible to put IOS 8 on my iPod if it already has IOS 9. Just wondering because IOS 9 is really slow on my iPod.

iPod touch, iOS 9.3.5

No.

Apple has long ago stopped signing/authorising iOS 8.

If your iPod Touch is slow, try my performance enhancing tips here.

Many will still apply to any iDevice, not just iPads.

Tap on the link below to my iDevice/iOS performance/optimisation user tips link.

Try all of these tips and leave each tip active together. Do not simply try every tip individually, expecting just one tip to be a performance “cure all”.

Many of these tips are designed to work together to improve overall iOS/iDevice performance.



Good Luck!
