I'm trying to download or to get .dmg of iOS 8.4 or later and all I can get from Apple dev center is ipws file. Is there any way to convert/extract/whatever this .ipws to a valid dmg image (that can be eventually mounted ?) or is there any link from where I can get a valid .dmg image of ios8.4 or later? Thank you in advance
