Note: This writeup is for advanced users and developers. For a guide that will actually walk you through this, is updated. should be soon™️.

13.x appears to have issues. 13.5 is confirmed to fail to check updates once you change the audience. If any other versions do this, please let me know.

So, I got bored and decided to do more research into alternates. Turns out you can still abuse it to update to 14.8 on iOS versions that don't support alternates. You're welcome.

This requires a jailbreak. Of course, you can do the backup editing stuff if you're not JBed but:

Alternate software updates

Why you don't see iOS 14 anymore

Hi, I'm back again.

Some background

If you're here, you're probably aware of the fact that Apple has been allowing users to stay on 14.5 and receive software updates. If you're out of the loop, take a look at this 9To5Mac article. This is called alternate software updates (or it may be shortened to AlternateSU in some places).

Anyways, this is what you would have been expecting if you checked for updates today:
