Another day, another iOS release. iOS 12.3 was released recently, which means the timeframe to save SHSH Blobs (or blobs for short) for iOS 12.2 is shrinking with every second. If you’re unaware, blobs are something like a snapshot of Apple’s servers that allow you to downgrade your iOS at a later date if you happen to jailbreak your device and break something. They’re basically your lifeline when things go wrong and you’re forced to update your firmware to a non-jailbreakable version.
Even if you’re not currently interested in jailbreaking, it’s still a good idea to save your blobs. Once a jailbreak for iOS 12.2 drops, you might change your mind so better safe than sorry.
