Downgrading iOS 11 beta to iOS 10 – 5 easy steps

Introduction:

iOS 11 beta recently came out and caused quite a lot of hassle to a lot of people. It had some features that displeased a number of users and they currently wish they could go back to the iOS 10. Features like this include its standard image and video quality. This runs fine otherwise, but if you try to run an application that does not convert images and videos as a native option, you might face a lot of trouble.

This, coupled with a number of other displeasing features, has motivated a lot of users to switch back from to iOS 10 that they prefer over this.

Steps to downgrade from iOS 11 beta:

The only requirement for this update is to have a backup of iOS 10 on your device. For obvious reasons, the device cannot downgrade to iOS 10 if the last backup was done on iOS 11 beta.

There are a number of steps that are to be followed if you are to do this. Let us look at what those are:

Step 1: the first thing that you need to make sure is that you have the right ISPW file for a downgrade from iOS beta 11 to iOS 10. Your downgrade cannot proceed until you have got the IPSW file right. This can be downloaded from iOS 10.3.2.

Step 2: the next step is to open iTunes from your pc. You will do this once the first step is completed successfully.

Step 3: this is the part where you will get to downgrading the iOS. All you have to do is go to the summary icon. You will find this under the device icon. From the Summary option, simply press update to start the downgrade. While you are pressing upgrade, make sure you also press the right key simultaneously.

The only variation about which you’re supposed to stay mindful is that if you are using a Mac, then you need to go on the update option after you click on ‘options’. If you are a Windows user, then you need to press shift before you go to the updates option.

Step 4: you are now supposed to select an IPSW file that suits your device. This option will be available to you under the window.

Step 5: a restoration process will start now. All you have to do is wait for it to end before you can start using your device again.
